Your dryer may have a spark igniter or a hot wire igniter .. those go bad after so many hours .. if you look in where the flame usually is .. as your start the dryer, you should see a small glowing wire if its a hot wire igniter .. or you should hear clicking and see sparks if its a spark igniter .. if you dont see/hear either then thats likely your problem .... both of those parts are available from washer/dryer parts distributors or GE parts on the internet .. but you have to know the make and model number of your dryer .. you should find that on a tag inside the door or on the back. .. if it actually ignites but quickly shuts off then you probably have a clogged exhaust hose or lint filter chamber .. it reqires a large unrestricted air flow thru the machine. if that is blocked then a sensor shuts off the gas in just a few seconds . . i am assuming that the drum is turning .. if not then thats a whole different problem ..

SOURCE: GE Dryer DDG7580B does not heat. vents are clear,

Replace the ceramic ignitor WE4X444. An easy fix. Nut is on the gas valve (not the line) to remove the burner assembly to replace the ignitor.

Good luck..

Where is the igniter located on a ge profile dryer


You need to take the front off the dryer and it will be alongside the gas tube going inside the combustion chamber. The igniter is one of those curly wand types and has a quick disconnect connector on it and is secured with a couple of screws.

Here are some diagrams that might help you:

I have a GE profile Harmony gas dryer model #DPGT750GC1PL. the dryer runs but there is no heat or air coming out of the vent. diagnostics do not indicate anything wrong


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
There's no heat dot_lineone.gif 1. Gas valve coils
Igniter glows, then shuts off without igniting gas - the problem is probably with defective coils (black, located on top of the gas valve). It is recommended to replace all coils (usually two or three) if found defective.

Note: Sometimes the whole gas valve may be defective, thus not letting the gas out. However, this problem is not common.

2. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

3. Igniter
Igniter may burn out or break. Replace the igniter if found defective.

Note: Igniters are very fragile and break easily. It is recommended to handle the igniter only touching the ceramic part of it (usually white in color).

4. Flame sensor (or radiant heat sensor)
Replace the sensor (located near the igniter) if found defective.

Ge profile dryer how do you get to the burner? ge profile dryer tumbles but no heat what is wrong?


Since you have a gas dryer, your problem is probably caused by the ingition panel.Generally, with a gas dryer, there is an ignition device that heats to a specific temperature and this causes the gas to ignite. When this electric ignition fails to work, the gas will not ignite and there will be no heat. I had this happen and had to call a professional. It was a simple matter of installing a new ignition device and it worked perfectly for years. I hope this helps! If it is a new dryer, check to see if this part might be covered under warranty.If this helps solve your problem, please come back to Fixya and rate my advice.

Ge adora gas dryer works fine for the first 8 minutes then will not ignite. hear a fluttering noise before the igniter glows. feel the problem might be the igniter coils


most likely you have bad gas coils.when the coils are on there way out they work fine until they heat up then they fail.the coils are what opens the gas valve,they are located on top of the gas valve,remove the 2 phillips screws,remove the cover and change out the coils.simple job

Gas dryers have electronic ignition. No pilot to worry about. Dry away. Careful, don't lose those socks now. Have a good day.
