How to fix the heat in a dryer


In an electric dryer you check for bad components using an ohmsmeter. I like to use an audible ohm meter. if it beeps it bueno if it don't beep it is bo bo. I remove at least one wire from each component to get a good reading on each component, The bad conponent gonna be the reason for no heat.

For gas I do basically the same thing however if the heat does work a little and quits that is the solenoids. they go bad when heated up with age.
All dryers basically have these components on them. Kimits on the heater, a heater element, a control tstat and fuse on the blower. All have this type setup no matter how they are put together. here is a video I made of an electric dryer:

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 have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

Kitckenaid dyer KGYe6778WH1 Dyer won't heat


This is most likely due to the coils on the gas valve, they can become unstable and cause the symptoms you are describing. The coil kit is part number 279834 and runs about $20.00. It is replaceable from the front and not too hard to do.

Side note: the '8' in your model number is actually a 'B'

Dyer is not heating up.it turns on and runs but it just does not heat up i took off hose and clean . also looked in back of dyer by taking off clover to look for fuse please help .


Kenmore dryers have what we call a thermo fuse, usually on top on the burner area - I would check continuity on this unit and replace if nesessary.
If the thermo fuse is okay and dryer heats up with gas, check your igniter and/or gas unit coils.
If dryer heats up with electric elements check continuity at both element ends and/or high limit thermostat.

GOOD LUCK!

Dyer not working


Most likely a faulty heating element or a blown thermal fuse. Both components can be tested using a multimeter. Test for continuity. A lack of resistance indicates a bad component. The thermal fuse located just inside the rear of the dryer and is usually mounted on the exhaust duct. It is about one inch long. If it has no continuity, the thermal fuse is blown. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Whirlpool model number LGV7646ANO gas dyer will not heat up


Can you hear a click like always? If not then it has to be either the fuse, ignitor,or sensor. If you hear it clicking then the operator coils are dead. HERE is a link that shows pictures of these parts and locations.
