Question about Dryers
WASH AND GET THINGS CLEAN. NEXT STEP IS PUT THEM IN THE DRYER. IT WILL GO AROUND, BUT NOT DRY. PUT THINGS IN FOR HOURS AND THEY COME OUT DAMP. THIS HAS 01-95 BUILD DATE
A dryer needs only three things to dry clothes:
1. Tumble the clothes.
2. Blow the air.
3. Heat the air.
If your clothes aren't drying, you are missing one or more of these.
You've mentioned that the basket is tumbling. That's good. The blower is also running if the motor is turning. But that doesn't mean the air is blowing. It could be clogged up behind the lint screen, in the vent pipe behind the machine, or at the vent outside the house.
If it's blowing lots of cold air (go to the outside vent to find out) then your dryer isn't heating. This would mean some part inside the dryer has failed. If so, the first thing you want to determine is, does the ignitor glow? There's a hole at the very bottom front edge where you might see it glow. You may have to place a mirror in front of the hole to see it glow.
Write back with more symptoms, and I'll help you through the rest.

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.
