<li>Check if the power cord is plugged into the wall. It may have come loose while moving the dryer.<br />
the fuses and circuit breakers for any that may have burned out or
tripped. Most gas dryers require power from two fuses or circuit
breakers. Often, your dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a
fuse or a circuit breaker is not working. Replace any burned out fuses
and reset any tripped circuit breakers.<br />
if the heating element in your gas dryer is burned out by using an ohm
meter to check for continuity. If the test reveals there is no
continuity, then you will need to fix the heating problem by having an
authorized repairman replace the heating element.<br />
the thermal fuse to see if it's burned out. You will find the fuse
attached to the exhaust duct on the back panel of the gas dryer. It's
usually surrounded by a black resin material situated in a housing made
of white plastic. If the fuse looks like it's blown, then it needs to
be replaced.<br />
if the main wiring connection from the house to the dryer is broken. A
gas dryer can still tumble with partial power, but an inadequate
connection with the main power supply to the house may be causing your
gas dryer to remain cold. If this is the problem, you may need to
replace the power cord that goes to the dryer as well as the terminal
block that is attached to the wire itself.<br />
at the gas valve coils to determine if they are faulty. If the igniter
radiates but then shuts off before it ignites the gas, then the coils
are probably bad. Replace the coils and your problem should be solved.
Also, if you find the igniter working properly then the problem may be
with the radiant heat sensor. The sensors are usually located close by
the igniter so are easily visible. Hire a repairman to replace these
faulty parts.<br /></li></ol>
If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes 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 differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.
check outthis electric no heat tip...
it probably has ruined the sensor eye or dirtied it so it cannot let the gas valve open,by chance,has or was this unit on L.P. gas or Natural gas at one time and has been changed over to the other gas,as this will,due to the wrong orfice in the gas flow create an over size flame
You are likely in need of new coils to make your dryer heat again. If the ignitor glows, the thermal fuses and thermostats are good. The coils sit directly on top of the gas valve, are easily replaced and inexpensive. CLICK HERE for the coil kit to get your dryer heating again. Using coupon code 1050 will save you some money!
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.
I hope this helps. If it does, please let Fixya know by rating my solution.
Check the glow ignitor and make sure it is glowing, if it is not glowing then replace it, if it is glowing then check the gas valve.. But sounds like the glow ignitor is bad and needs replaced, if it is cracked it wont work either so look really carefully, maye even pull it out.
