Hooked up roper dryer and it's propane everything seems to be hooked up right but won't get hot or even heat up. This is first time ever having to use propane. Any idea what it might be or could have... the pilot light lite burning.
2. if pilot light light is on ,does the blue flame of the pilot light touch and heat up the thermocouple.
the dryer will not turn on the heat if the pilot flame does not touch and heat up the thermocouple.

3 is the dryer plugged in to the electricity.
4. is the dryer actually getting electricity.
If the dryer has electricity and the pilot flame is touching the thermocouple, then try buying and installing a new thermocouple.

****have you purged the air out of the gas lines so that the dryer is actually geting pure propaine and not just air getting pushed ahead of the propaine.

how old is your dryer, if new, warranty service will trouble shoot & repair for free.

you need to tell us more so that we have some facts to work with. vagueness does not cut it.

Hi, i have an amana dryer, model LG8409w2. it is running but has no heat. is this a gas dryer? and how do i get into it to see what's wrong. thanks

Hi, to tell if it is gas or elect, just pull it out some and look behind it. A gas dryer will have a galvanized pipe with a gas flex line and shut off valve going to it. If electrical, it will have a large diameter cord plugged into a large round plug much different then a regular receptacle. It sounds as though it is a electric dryer as it is running. A gas dryer will have a regular plug on it to. If no heat, it could be a number of things that are wrong. The heat strips are located at the rear of the dryer behind the panel. You will need to unplug it and pull it out to do this. Give yourself lots of room with a strong light to work with. The heating element has several coils of wire lined up in a vertical position. Look them over very good for a break in any part of these coils, look very carefully to find one. If you do, you will need a new one. Take the model, serial, and name to a appliance parts house to get one. If by chance it is gas, make sure there is gas to the unit and the valve is open. Shut off the valve and take loose the line. Crack open the vale a little to hear and smell the gas. There is not much you can check on a gas dryer but this, that's about it. It may be the ignitior, a thermostat ect. I am sure you have a electric dryer, so check the element and clean all of the lint from the unit. Get back to me on this, so we can go further if needed.

Igniter keeps going out on LP dryer

Look at the gas control box. Inside this box has a valve to open the gas so it can sustain the burner. This valve is control by the voltage of dryer sensor. This thermocouple is near the ignitor.. If this fails, there would be no voltage to open the valve. Here is how it looks like: 7f43321.jpg

Pilot lights but main burner dose not light when turned on

possibly a fowled thermocouple if the thermocouple doesn's sense the pilot flame then it will not send a signal to the gas valve telling it that its okay to open cause the pilot is lit.

Amana Dryer LG8409W2 - The dryer heats for a few seconds then runs cold. The dryer has been cleaned as well as the vent and still no heat.

karenl46 -- Flame sensor has to "see" proper flame in order for gas burner to stay on. Safety solenoid engages (shuts off gas) when flame light not detected. Check window on sensor (1:30 CW position) on burner tube. If you still have problem after cleaning it, then refer to URL below. -- SWT
