No heat in gas dryer

Hello....I have a Duet gas dryer...two years old.....No problems till today...now I have no heat when I run it. I checked the gas line and the exhaust and both are working. I unplugged it for 20 minutes to see if there was some type of re-start on it. When I turn it on, I don't hear anything fire or attempt to fire. Is there a thermocoupler type pilot? Any suggestions?

thanks
tom

    do you have a picture of this igniter? i have the same problem with a duet front loading gas dryer model number GGW9200LW0. I have the front bottom cover off and have the dryer running but do not see this large tube with any ceramic pieces. Also I am not seeing this orange/red glow either, maybe it is my problem?? how much is this part? should i buy it then replace it?

Remove the bottom cover (2 screws), and set it off to the side. Look into the right side (as you are looking at it) of the now uncovered dryer compartment. Here you will see a rather large tube. Behind this tube, you will see a flat ceramic piece (with several rounded edges at one side) with wires going to it. That is the igniter. Turn the dryer on & see if this thingy glows red-orange HOT. If not, remove it and look at the metallic portion. If any of the metal strips are cracked, the igniter is bad. Purchase a new one at your local appliance supply and bolt the new one back in. When the dryer is calling for heat, the igniter glows red hot, and ignites the gas. If it does not glow, the flame sensor is not satisfied and there will be no flame/no heat. I just replaced mine 2 weeks ago. Easy fix.

The thermal fuse is wired in
series with the gas valve. If the thermal fuseno heat in gas dryer - 69ecc7e.jpg
opens, 91°C (196°F), power to the valve is
turned off. A centrifugal switch on the motor
also opens the heater circuit.
Once the thermal fuse has opened, it will not
reset, and must be replaced. Check for a failed
thermistor and or air restrictions. Here is a duet service manual
These coils can go out:2e1dbeb.jpg
Usually if the dryer heats a little but quits it is these. You said you have no heat so it must be the duct fuse shown above.

Gas dryer heating element won't come on.


There is a controller problem to turn on the gas manifold to produce heat. Since you have it only one week old, let's take the advantage of the warranty to have a new controller unit replaced.

Whirlpool Imperial Electric Dryer wont heat up


Check the following to address this issue.




1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

3. 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.

Duet front loader dryer


Check the lint trap and the vent. If the vent is clogged or crushed in anyway then replace it with a new dryer vent.
There reasons why a dryer will not dry clothes:
Clogged Lint Trap
Crushed or clogged vent
Last but not your issue, not getting and heat to the unit due to glow ignitor bad or no gas supply or bad gas valve.
So check what I told you and this should fix the problem right away

Kenmore gas dryer runs but not heating


Try replacing the valve coils first, then the valve if the prior doesn't work. If there is a buzzing noise, I believe it's more likely the valve. I'm replacing both on mine to be sure.

Amana gas dryer only heats first 20 minutes


Check your ducts that the heat blows out through. make sure there is no plug up in the dryer or in the ductwork.
You may have a problem with the termosensor or the high temp cut out safety switch/sensor. This sensor would be somewhere in the exhaust of the dryer.
