The problem is the dryer coils have failed. They tend to fail as they heat up. They are inexpensive and easy to replace. Try these videos http://appliancehelponline.com/gdryertroublevideo.html

Gas Dryer wont stay lit.


It may be your dryer vent piping. If the piping from the dryer to the outside of the house is clogged with lint (which happens periodically) the dryer cannot get rid of the heat generated by the gas burner. When the temperature reaches a certain level the high limit switch opens and shuts the burner off. The switch closes again after the dryer cools down. Check the lint filter and all the vent piping for any obstructions and clean out thoroughly. This should solve your problem. Hope this helps.

I suspect the vent is the issue with your dryer. It sounds like the air is not moving to the outside well and is keeping the interior too hot. The filter housing may also be plugged. Make sure the vent is clear all the way to the outside. Be certain that the hose is not kinked or crushed behind the dryer and is as short as possible. You may change the operating thermostat as well.

AFTER DISCONECTING THE GAS FOR TILE WORK IT NEVER WOULD REHEAT


So long as its heating a little, try removing the venting, and see if there an improvement. a clogged vent will greatly reduce if not stop all heat . dont forget to check where venting exits the home outside also becomes clogged.

Now restart it - it should work.

My Whirpool Duet Gas Dryer is no longer heating up.


This is probally the coils. They tend to fail as the dryer heats. There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html that will walk you thru the troubleshooting. It's a different model but the testing of the parts will be the same.

Gas dryer get hot but than goes cold


This sounds like a problem with your fan motor. The dryer is getting too hot and the gas is shutting off until it cools down. That fan keeps the dryer cool by moving the heat to the clothes in the drum.
You can easily check this by feeling for air flow in front of the exhaust vent outside. No air movement = fan problem = heat shut off in 10 minutes. Good luck

Gas dryer gets hot for a few minutes then goes cold.


Sounds like you need to replace the coils on the gas valve. Just make sure your venting is clear 1st. If it is, the coils are easy to replace. Remove the front panel and the coils are on the bottom right hand side. Two screws and the bracket for both comes off. One has two terminals and the other has three. Real easy once you get into the dryer.

Natural gas dryer running too hot


I suspect you have a blocked air vent. A blocked vent will make you dryer run hot. Most vents get blocked by lint near their exit to the outside. There's usually a screen at this location to prevent small animals from crawling into your house. Often this screen gets clogged with lint. Most vents are designed to allow removal and cleaning of this screen from the outside.

FRIDGIDAIRE GAS DRYER MODEL # GLGR642AS2 IS NOT DRYING CLOTHES BUT GAS IS IGNITING. THANK YOU. DON


Hi Don,
So let me get this straight, you are getting heat from the gas burner and the drum rotates but your clothes remain wet? You can check a few basic things to identify where the problem lies.. First off, have you checked the lint trap and cleaned it? Secondly, have you checked your vent system ( meaning : are you sure it is not clogged anywhere in the duct or at the end where it exits outside? If that's OK.. when your system is drying clothes.. do you get hot air flow at the end of that duct? If not, your blower may not be working ..You need to move that hot air out of the tub for the system to dry. Heat, Motion to move clothes, air flow from the blower and an unimpeded path via the vent duct to outside.. Hope one of these things to check gets you going. Regards...

Maytag dryer does not maintain heat and clothes smell


Check coils on burner assembly. Often when a dryer heats initially and then stops heating a coils has gone bad.
