Check if there is voltage across the igniter. if there's no voltage, trace the diagram and you might stumble on a thermal fuse that is busted.also, check the gas solenoid. the ignitor could be heating up but if you dont have gas then there will be no ignition...

Tumbles but does not dry


When you put your wet cloths in the dryer close the door. You should then turn on the dry cycle you wish, not the fluff option as there will be only air and gas dryer will not heat the cloths. Wait 30 ~ seconds after the dryer is turned on and listen for the gas to ignite and begin warming and drying the cloths. If you hear no bump sound like the ignition of the gas, then you have an ignition issue. It will require replacing the ignitor. All the best and good luck. Hope this helped.

Brand new dryer won't heat. Tumbles fine - but no heat. Maytag 2000 series. I already checked the breaker - no problem


Hi,

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...

GE Dryer DDG7580B does not heat. vents are clear, dryer tumbles, just no gas ignition. Other gas appliances working well. Help!


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..

Maytag MCG8000AWW gas dryer no heat


The ignitor may be bad you can chek to see if there is 110volts when the dryer is allin by unplugging the wire to the ignitor and putting using a multimeter to chek for voltage at the wires. If there is power to the ignitor and the ignitor is not glowing up then the ignitor is probably bad replace the ignitor.

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)

My dryr tumbles but does not dry


Gas dryer? First thing to check is the ignitor underneath the drum. (You have to open the panel to see it)  It should glow shortly after the dryer starts, then the flame starts and the ignitor shuts off.  If the ignitor is glowing but the gas does not light then the gas valve coils may have to be replaced.  If the gas ignites but does not stay on either the flame sensor or the coils are at fault.

Electric dryer? Temperature sensor has failed or heating element has burned out.

Stops heatinng


Hi, first thing to check is the venting. If the vent is plugged, it will cause the heat to short cycle.
If later in the cycle, the ignitor glows but will not ignite the gas, you will need to change the coils on top the gas valve. This is a common problem.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks

No heat


Is the ignitor glowing? There is a flame sesor on the burner assembly if it is open you will not get any power to the ignitor to lite the gas.
