If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

check out this electric no heat tip...

Does not dry the clothes.


On the blower housing in the rear is a duct fuse. If the dryer gets stopped up that fuse will blow and kill the gas assembly so I always check that first. Then If that is kosher I check the flame sensor for continuity. if it is open the ignitor and coils won't work. if it turns out to have continuity I next will check the ignitor for continuity. If it is open then nothing can happen right? If the dryer runs and the ignitor glows, shuts down and heats for a short time and then quits then that is the operator coils. mainly the one with 2 wires comes on and stays on most of the time the dryer is calling for heat. the coils come in a pair for $20. On this page I am going to post a better explanation is given with pictures. above the page is a few more links that are helpful. More gas dryer enlightenment

Burner comes on for 30 secs or so and shuts off. Ignitor cycles


it sounds like the gas valve solenoids are shorting out. there are two coils that operate in tandem to allow gas flow. these coils can eventually overheat and cause the gas not to flow as well have a rattling sound from the plunger inside the coil trying to move inside the weakened coil. the coils can be replaced and will come in a pair with guide pins to help you put them in correctly. one coil will have three wires going to it and the other coil will have two wires going to it. pretty simple fix and should solve the problem
hope this helps....jay

Whirlpool Dryer LGQ9508PW0 flame comes on and shuts off after 30 seconds.


this might actually be normal, whats the complaint??? to long to dry clothes maybe 2-3 cycles??? would be a common complaint. in which id check to make sure vent is not clogged anywhere, especially where exiting the home if he venting is ok id replace the coils atop the gas valve, possible and common for that matter that after running for 20-30 min they do not reopen and dont allow flem to reignite... part number 279834 retails for about $20 easy enough repair.... reason for flame to go on and turn off after only 30 secs is that in an empty dryer 30 secs of heat may be enough to satisfy the thermostat, that's alot of heat for an empty dryer, it would remain on for longer with a load of wet clothes absorbing the heat

Whirlpool gas dryer model number ler7646eq2 does not produce heat


Need more info. Does it rotate? If it has a viewing door on the front, you may see if the ignitor is glowing. If the ignitor glows, the ignitor (flame) sensor may be bad, and the ignitor will shut down.
