If it's gas it's likely the ignitor or glow coil. it has to burn white hot in order to light. it is not hot enough to light if it's an orange/red colour. if it's electric, check the element for a break, use a ohm meter and test for continuity. also a good idea to make sure the venting is clean and clear.

Tumbles but no heat, how do i check out the igniter?


Some dryers have an access panel below the door. If there is a panel and you can remove it, you will be able to observe the igniter. Turn on the dryer so it begins tumbling and demands heat. A good igniter will glow long enough to heat the thermocouple and turn on the gas valve (click). Igniters are rather delicate and can crack with age but newer ones are less likely to do this.

Dryer has lost heat.


Hi
If the dryer is not drying the clothes then you would need to check for the following things-
Electric Dryer---
1. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working.
2. Check for the amp reading at 240 V, it should have reading of 24, 21 and 3 amp (approx.) for 2 lines and neutral respectively.
3. Heating element may have turned or the connection to the element might be loose. Sometimes a shorted circuit element will keep on blowing the fuse or circuit breaker.
4. Motor wiring shorting to ground.
Gas Dryer---
1. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working.
2. Check for the continuity of the heating element in your gas dryer using a multimeter. Replace the element if continuity is not there.
3. Inspect the thermal fuse if it is burnt out, it is attached to the exhaust duct on the back panel of the gas dryer. Replace if necessary.
4. Check the igniter by first disconnecting it, and then place the probes onto the two contacts of the igniter. The meter should read under 100 Ohms of resistance, if it is above 100 then replace the igniter.
5. Check the continuity on the flame sensor. The sensors are usually located close by the igniter so are easily visible.
Hope this helps...

Dryer tumbles but no heat


I believe this unit has a hot-surface ignitor, and they work great, but do go bad eventually. The easy way to tell is to visibly see if the ignitor is operating during startup... can you get to it?
The hot-surface ignitor is easy to replace- (be careful not to touch it with fingers - like with halogen bulbs)

Dryer will not heat up.Igniter is good but will not heat up. No gas smell while dryer is tumbling.problem must be elsewhere?Please help


there is two small black solinoids near the igniter., just follow the wires. they are not opening letting the gas through the safety. or the igniter is not getting hot enough to activate the solinoids. i have seen them glow but not create enough milivolts to open the solinoids
