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.

Gas dry is not heating enough to dry clothes


There is two possible causes. Either your gas coils are going bad late in the cycle or your venting is restricted. I would go outside check to make sure you have good airflow. If you have good airflow outside the only common cause of gas dryers failing to heat late in the cycle would be gas coils. If you have a peep hole on your dryer look in it after your dryer has been running for approx 30 mins and see if the ignitor glows and then shuts off. If the burner does not kick on then you have bad gas coils. They are part number 5303931775.

Let me know if this helps _MJ_

Replace both coils on the burner valve . After heating up , they will not open to let gas thru again until cooled down for a short period of time . With no heat , timer will not cut off unless set for timed dry .

GE GAS DRYER DDG7189SBLWW NO HEAT?


SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE A RESTRICTION IN YOUR DRYER VENT SOMEWHERE. THE UNIT LABORED TO EXHAUST UNTIL THE THERMAL FUSE BLEW. YOU WILL NEED KNOWLEDGE OF THE USE OF A MULTIMETER TO MAKE THE NECESSARY TESTS ON THESE ITEMS, BUT DON'T FORGET TO CLEAR THE RESTRICTION!

Gas dryer tripping breaker when plugged in.


I have the same exact problem. Dryer works great....when empty. Put wet clothes in and 3 or 4 hours later they are as wet as when I started. I am going to kick the piece of junk to the curb and go get a GE dryer right now.....I suggest you do the same.
