Dryer not heating


Hello there and welcome to fixya

Here are the most common things that will need to be checked with a meter to ensure there is continuity on these parts no continuity means that the part is bad and needs replacement ok?

Thermal Fuse

If the dryer doesn't heat, but the drum turns, check the thermal fuse(s). The thermal fuse protects the dryer from overheating and helps to prevent fires. If the thermal fuse is blown, it will have to be replaced.

Gas Valve Solenoid

The gas valve has two or more electric solenoids which open the valve to let the gas flow into the burner assembly. If the dryer doesn't heat one or more of the solenoids may be defective. If the igniter glows for 90 seconds but the burner flame doesn't light, replace these coils as a set.

Dryer Igniter

If the dryer doesn't heat, the igniter might be burned out. Check the igniter for continuity with an ohm meter. Dryer igniters burn out over time, similar to a light bulb.

Heating Element

The heating element on an electric dryer can burn out over time. If the dryer doesn't heat, the element should be checked for continuity. The heating element cannot be repaired and must be replaced if defective.

Flame Sensor

Gas dryers have a flame sensor to detect the heat given off by the flame. If the dryer doesn't heat, the flame sensor might be defective. Check the flame sensor for continuity. This is not as common as a burned out igniter or thermal fuse.

High Limit Thermostat

Although not common, if the dryer doesn't heat the high limit thermostat can be defective. It can be checked for continuity. If the thermostat is "open" the dryer doesn't heat.

Cycling Thermostat

Door seal on my Frigedaire sise by side gets hot, what is wrong?


I had this once with a Fridigare GLRS267ZAQ4 side by side but it was also heating up water and the freezer wasn't working very well.

My problem was that the coils and condenser in the back bottom of this unit needed a major cleaning and the fan wasn't working very well. Cheap to buy that part and replace yourself. This problem was causing this unit to heat up everywhere because the coils and compressor were not being cooled properly.

I have often found this unit to get ice build up in the back inside wall and had to take a hair dryer to it in order to melt the ice. This mostly caused problems with the ice dispenser and freezer getting warm.

Right now I am having a problem with my refrigerator not cooling well but the freezer is fine. Guess I'll try to defrost the ice and check the coils again.

Hope this helps!
