With the gas machine you won't actually have a heating element. What you will have is a burner assembly. There are a few common things that can cause a gas dryer to stop heating.

The dryers have a square cap on the front near the bottom. Remove this with a knife or small object. Looking through this hole you are face to face with the burner assembly. Turn the machine on, if after 10-15 seconds you see a glow and the flame starts, you probably have a bad set of coils. Coils can allow the dryer to start, but after the flame goes off, they have problems starting it again. So, when you come back and find damp laundry, it may actually be heating, just not very well. IF there is no glow when you look through the peep hole, keep reading.

The most common part is a thermal fuse. This fuse is located on the back of the dryer. Simply unplug the dryer, pull it out, and remove the back (Eight 1/4 screws). The fuse looks like this http://www.appliancepartscompany.com/xcart/images/D/3392519.JPG it will be on the lower left hand side. If you do not have a multimeter to check continuity you cannot be for sure. This is a cheap start to figuring out your problem.

If you have a multimeter simply check the two terminals where the wires were plugged in for continuity. It should read about .1. This fuse goes bad when it gets to hot. There are few reasons this happens, but the #1 reason is that the vent to the dryer is clogged in some form or fashion. Outside the house where the vent exits should have a strong air flow while the dryer is on. If it is clogged by any means, the hot air cannot escape the dryer and the fuse will blow.

Two of the other commonly replaced parts are inside the dryer, accessible from the front. These parts are the ignitor and the coils.

You should check for continuity on the heating element. If you have continuity there, be sure you have voltage to the element. You have 2 (I beleive) temp sensors in line also. Check them, one may have a reset button (not sure). Make sure your exaust duct is clear to prevent thermo sensor burn out in the future.

Dryer runs but their is no heat the element looks good could it be the limit switchsafmac3@yahoo.com


Use an ohm meter to verify the heating element has not failed. If you read infinity on the meter then you need a new element. This would be a good place to start. The alternative is to verify you are getting voltage to the element. Also be sure to check the thermal fuse if one is present.

Dryer gets hot for the first few minutes only


first check your venting. if you have backed up lint then it will not heat as well. if it's not your venting i would check to see if your heating element is broken and shorted to the casing..some times it will still heat if the coils weld themselves to the casing...if the heating element looks good then i would turn to your electrical.

My maytag electric dryer will not heat up. it's a de107


Have someone check to be sure you have 240 volts to the plug. The dryer will run on 120 volts but must have 240 volts to the heating unit. If you 240 volts you probably need a heating element or control.

No heat from dryer


is it 220 volt dryer,if so check the plug at the wall and make sure you have 220,the plug runs off 2 circuit breakers at your electric panel,1 breaker may be no good so your only getting 110 volts to the dryer which will run the dryer but not the heating element
