Hi, On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.) A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

Gas dryer wont stay lit

I'm assuming it "starts" to heat but then cuts off. Usually after the first minute of running you can open dryer door and feel heat but after awhile it doesn't heat.

1st, most common problem on a gas dryer not heating is "airflow" . They will "short-cycle" if there isn't near perfect airflow. Turn dryer on and go to outside exhaust vent. It should blow about as hard as you can blow into your hand. If any doubt disconnect dryer vent line from wall and let blow into your laundry room for one cycle and see if it is now working correctly. If it does work correctly when vent line is disconnected at wall you KNOW there is blockage somewhere in your vent line.

2nd, most common problem are gas coils. Easy to replace. 99% of all gas coils are the same so here is the part# (WE04X10020) (write it down.

How do i replace the thermal fuse

Hello there
Unplug your dryer from its electrical outlet. make sure that all electricity has been disconnected from your dryer before moving on

turn off the gas valve that supplies gas to your dryer. Remove the gas flex line at the shut-off valve using an adjustable wrench.

Remove your dryer's back panel. take out the screws on the back of the dryer and the panel will come free. set the panel and screws aside until you are ready to replace them.

locate the thermal fuse between the dryer's blower housing and exhaust. the thermal fuse looks like a white plastic strip with two connected wires.

unplug the wires connected to the thermal fuse.

remove the screw that secures the thermal fuse to your dryer. set the screw aside and discard the broken thermal fuse.

replace the thermal fuse screw to attach the new replacement thermal fuse to your dryer.

reconnect the wires to the thermal fuse.

Gas line had to be disconnected to house last week for a gas leak repair. Everything is fixed and gas is back. Now gas dryer will not heat up. It runs fine, just no heat. Is there something I have to...

most gas dryers have what is called a ignitor on them that will glow when the unit is turned on and after they get red hot then a milivolt signal is sent back to the gas valve to open and fire up... i would check to see if the ignitor is glowing first... you will have to gain access to the bottom of unit in order to see this. you will have to remove front of dryer and most likely the tub,some of the newer maytags have a bracket that will hold the tub in place while working on it... before i did al this though it is possible there is still air in the line and will require bleeding the line at dryer... alot of people are afraid of gas but if common sense used you will be fine... you should have a gas stop at dryer gas supply line if not you need to install one. either way take a wrench and remove gas line at one of the closest connections to dryer and on purpose bleed a small amount of gas out.this will do 2 things (1) it will bleed any air in line going toward dryer and (2) confirm you still have gas pressure and gas going to dryer after your disconnection last week nothing happened to line.then reconnect and try again. if you ran dryer for an extended time it would eventually bleed the line also. not sure how long you ran it,but this will prove you still have gas at dryer . if after that no cure check the ignitor on unit to see if it is working if it is and no flame the gas regulator may be faulty after the disconnection last week/.... good luck to you

I have an Kenmore gas dryer model 110.87174100 which was disconnected temporarily. Now it is reconnected to the gas line. How is it ignited?

this unit, and most dryers nowadays, uses an ignitor.  it is an electronic glowbar that will ignite the gas.  nothing to light just, if the gas connection is good and you are sure of no leaks, go ahead and start drying...

I just moved and my LG dryer does not heat up.

Your ignitor (glow bar) got broken during the move. They are more fragile than your grandmother's fine china
