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 dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


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

If you remove the top, then the front, there is a technical spec sheet in the dryer itself. It is taped to the side or the rails.

Quits heating


umm. what was original problem that made you change coils to begin?? no heat i would imagine.dont rush to judgement thatyour fix didnt work, if your running the dryer empty to test your repair,its quite possible that the dryer is going to heat to desired temp quickly, and take a while to cycle back on. throwsome wet clothes in machine and test it then.
