Have you checked your vent for blockage? If you have an expandable vent hooked up in back (plastic or foil) make sure it is not squished or collapsed. Also check inside the back of the dryer where the vents hooks up for lint build-up and the vent cap outside for blockage or stuck flap. Douglas

My GE Profile Harmony Dryer is no longer Heating

Does it get hot when you turn it on, and then never gets hot again while its running? On my dryer the solenoid broke, when the dryer was cold it worked and the dryer operated properly because the dryer and solenoid were cold and the solenoid wire was closed, when the dryer was hot enough the solenoid opened and the heat would not restart. the solenoid is a coiled wire which is used to open the gas valve.

Kitchenaid gas dryer had a pair of gym shoes in it and one of them got jammed and stopped the whole thing. Now it won't do anything when the start button is pushed. Is there a reset in this unit?

if it jammed then it might have damaged the motor. There is no reset other than a motor overload protector that cutspower to the motor if it gets too hot. When the motor cools down if might restart

Gas dryer will only light one time glow plug comes on but no gas

Replace the gas valve coils. When they get hot, they are going out on overload.

Dryer won't stay hot

Possible problem is the gas coils sticking. You can verify this if you turn on the dryer and are able to see the igniter glow orange and shut off without a flame in the burner funnel.
