Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. No Heat issue in dryer is usually caused due to three things mainly: Thermal Fuse, Wiring Harness and/or Heating Element. Start with checking the Thermal Fuse which is mounted inside the back cover panel to the exhaust duct and is mounted in white plastic housing. If that’s fine then the Heating Element should be checked. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Dryer not blowing hot air


When you say 220 gas dryer I'm not sure what you mean. If it's 220V then it should be an electric dryer, not a gas dryer. Troubleshooting is totally different between gas and electric. If it's electric (large 30A 220V plug) then good chance heating element(s) have gone bad. You can look up parts on www.searspartsdirect.com Have your complete model number. IF it's gas, it may be the pilot ignition has failed

Tumbling fine no hot air. is a gas dryer


First, check that the ignitor is working properly. It should glow visibly if it is working. If the ignitor seems to be functioning properly, then I would suspect the gas valve coils. These electrical coils are right above the gas valves and when these solenoids are energized they open the gas valves and permit the burner to light. If they are faulty, the gas valves don't open so no gas gets to the burner. Due to the difficulty in testing these solenoids, it is recommended that both (all) be replaced at the same time if any are suspected of being faulty. Hope this helps and best wishes.

Gas dryer work but doesn't get hot


Tell your natural gas company that you smell gas around your gas dryer and you think there may be a leak. They will send somebody out, at no cost to you to check on the appliance (gas dryer). When that person gets there, they will re-light your appliance and if the gas dryer needs a new thermal coupler, they will show you where it's at and how to replace it.
