SOURCE: It will not heat up

LG gas dryers have a manually resettable high limit thermostat on the burner assembly. It is near the igniter and is about the size of a dime with two wires attached to it. There is a pin in the center of it which can be pushed in to reset the thermo. It usually trips due to a poor vent (poor air flow, causes excessive heat build up at the burner). Eliminate any flexible ducting, make vent as short and straight as possible, and clean out lint in vent pipe and at the exterior vent hood. Make sure the exterior vent hood has a full 4 inch distance the flap can move (not the two in low profile type) or is one of the multi louver types. You will have to take the front of the dryer off to get to the resettable thermo. (make sure the dryer is unplugged when the front is off)

Dryer 'runs', just doesn't develop ANY heat. We


If you have a gas dryer, your problem is probably caused by the ingition panel.Generally, with a gas dryer, there is an ignition device that heats to a specific temperature and this causes the gas to ignite. When this electric ignition fails to work, the gas will not ignite and there will be no heat. I had this happen and had to call a professional. It was a simple matter of installing a new ignition device and it worked perfectly for years. I hope this helps! If it is a new dryer, check to see if this part might be covered under warranty.If this helps solve your problem, please come back to Fixya and rate my advice

Dryer is 2 years old. Worked fine until we moved to a new house and could not hook it up. 1 year later I finally had the electric problem fixed and hooked the dryer up No Heat. Dryer turns on but NO Heat.


is the outlet 3 or 4 prongs?. voltage check the outlet for propper voltage. check connection at dryer power cord. 2 of the wires power the motor circuitry(120vac) the other 2 the heating element. you may have a loose connection in outlet,switch wires or bad-half trip breaker. if not,,,, there's a dryer problem, call us again with update please. good luck to you.

Our Whirlpool Senseon Dryer stopped heating. It's


I had the same problem. I replaced the thermistor,heating element and another part and still didn't correct problem. i finally had a friend come check it and believe it or not it was the 30 amp fuse in my fuse panel of the house.Come to find out the dryer will run and everything works like it should on 1/2 of the 220 plug but the other half runs the heating element.Both fuses must be good. I replaced the 30 amp round fuse and it works and heats perfect. I hope this helps you and saves you some time and money.

Frigidare Gas Dryer - get some heat, but NOT hot enough!!


You say its a gas dryer...there is no element. Have you cleaned the lint trap. Is the vent clear of obstructions? I suspect one of these issues will be the problem
