With gas dryers the unit will run with a bad thermal fuse, igniter, coils, thermostat or gas valve. check the thermal fuse for continuity. if the igniter does not draw enough amps the coil will not trigger the gas valve to open, or it could be a bad coil. pretty rare that the gas valve is bad. I would start with the thermal fuse, it is usually located on the blower housing.
Hi Is three sample resolution
1 electric cable broken
2 pushed bottom broken
3 thermal fuse broken
Check cable ,change pushed bottom open the standing cover , exchange thermal fuse open back dryer cover. Usually is the fuse.
The cycling thermostat must also be replaced when replacing the thermal fuse. The cycling thermostat's failure to cycle off the heating element results in overheating of the dryer which consequently blows the thermal fuse open.
Replacing only the thermal fuse should the dryer stops running and
fails to start will result in its premature blowing or even the thermal
cut-out (cut-off) located on the heater duct. Like the cycling thermostat, the high-limit thermostat must also be replaced once the thermal cut-out blows open. Refer to the parts diagram in the link below and look for item numbers 31(thermal cut-off), 34(hi-limit thermostat), 39(thermal fuse), and 41(cycling thermostat.
the thermal fuse may be faulty. Remove the outer back of the dryer. the thermal fuse is located on the blower assy with 2 wires connected to it. It is white plastic. connect the wires together, then try to start the unit again. If the unit starts, clean the exhaust duct after replacing the thermal fuse.
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 yourspecific 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
First, please keep in mind that i am attempting to diagnose your unit with out being there and with limited information.
If I were called out to your home to repair this problem, I would first check your breaker. I would flip it off and then back on. If this didn't fix the problem. I would then check the door switch. If it's good, I would then open the back and check the thermal fuse and then the Thermal cut off. If either were bad I would change it. If it were the thermal cutoff. I would also change you high limit because when the thermal cutoff is bad, it is due to the high limit thermostat going bad, then the dryer cycling on the thermal cut off until it goes bad causing a problem like what you have.
