Possible cause is a bad ignitor. Alot of gas dryers have a ceramic hot surface ignitor. If you can access it, Look and check for cracks. Do not touch the ceramic portion. Oils from your skin will cause a failure if that is not the cause. Other failures can include limit switches and thermostat. In my expierece the hot surface ignitor is the most common failure.

You should know that dryer has a thermal fuse located along exhaust Of heat... When You over load the machine the flow of air is not enough... Then thermal fuse is damaged ( open due security condition ) and the flame is turn off all the time... Just replace the thermal fuse. I hope this can help You. Sincerely

Dryer not drying


another user's Q&A for the same issue try that or call may tag, they are supper helpful

Investigate these five areas if your dryer is not heating up:

Proper Voltage

If your dryer won't heat up, it's possible that it is not being supplied with the proper voltage. Here are three ways to make sure power is getting to your dryer: First, make sure your dryer is plugged in. Next, check the circuit breaker panel to make sure all the circuit breakers are in the correct positions. Finally, check to make sure no fuses in your fuse panel are blown. Any of these could explain why power is not getting to your dryer.

8574d88.jpg Heating Element

It is possible that your dryer isn't heating because its heating element is defective. Heating elements are irrepairable. If yours has ceased to function properly, you will have to replace it. Open your dryer's cabinet and locate the heating element so that you can test it.

d5b5af3.jpg Thermal Fuse

Another possible cause for a dryer not heating up could be attributed to a faulty thermal fuse. Once a dryer's thermal fuse has blown, it is no longer of any use. If your dryer's fuse is blown, you will have to replace it. Open up your dryer's cabinet and locate its thermal fuse so that you can test it.
77d6bd4.jpg Thermostat

If any of your dryer's thermostats have become defective, they could be the reason that your dryer is not heating. Open up your dryer's cabinet and test each of your dryer's thermostats. If any are faulty, replace them.

    Location of Thermal Fuse


    The thermal fuse is located near the heating element. The part number for the replacement kit is LA-1053. You can view an illustrated parts break down of your dryer at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and locate item 5 under the "Heater" section. Pay close attention to the instructions in the thermal fuse replacment kit. One thermostat is for a GAS dryer, one is for an ELECTRIC dryer. Read the instructions and make sure you use the correct one. If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

    On the Kenmore series 90 electric dryer, where is the thermal fuse located.


    The Thermal Fuse is located on the air blower housing. Its a small white plastic component with two wire leads.

    The Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) is located on the outside of the heater box on the end opposite the heating element terminals.

    The reason I mention both these components is because some people confuse the two and use the words interchangeably. There is a difference between the two components and what they do.

    DOUBLE CHECK YOUR SYMPTOMS:

    If your dryer does not run at all, check your Thermal Fuse.

    If your dryer runs, but does not heat you need to check the Thermal Cut-Out.

    If you have any questions, please post back and let me know what symptoms you are having. Please include your complete model number (located on a nameplate around the door opening) so that I can determine how your dryer is configured. I hope this is helpful to you.

    Does not heat ; timer OK, natural gas dryer gas


    In most cases, a failure to heat is caused by a blown thermal fuse or high limit thermostat. Usually it is the fuse, but the fuse may be blown due to a defective thermostat. To find the location on your specific machine (and purchase the parts) try www.appliancepartspros.com To test the fuse, WITH THE MACHINE UNPLUGGED, put an ohmmeter or continuity tester across the fuse with it's wires unhooked. It should have continuity. If it is open, replace it. If the thermal fuse blows, it is fairly common to find the dryer vent partially blocked as well. Make sure it is clear. Thermal fuses are fairly cheap, but you don't want to have to replace it every other week. Good luck.

    No heat in dryer model # 96591420


    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.

    Check the following areas to combat this issue. the most common problem spot will be a blown Thermal fuse.


    1. Gas valve coils
    Igniter glows, then shuts off without igniting gas - the problem is probably with defective coils (black, located on top of the gas valve). It is recommended to replace all coils (usually two or three) if found defective.

    Note: Sometimes the whole gas valve may be defective, thus not letting the gas out. However, this problem is not common.

    2. 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.

    Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

    3. Igniter
    Igniter may burn out or break. Replace the igniter if found defective.

    Note: Igniters are very fragile and break easily. It is recommended to handle the igniter only touching the ceramic part of it (usually white in color).

    4. Flame sensor (or radiant heat sensor)
    Replace the sensor (located near the igniter) if found defective.
