The ignitor ignites itself when you start the dryer.  if it is not glowing you either have a bad thermal fuse or the ignitor itself is bad.

I have a imperial whirlpool dryer. I thought it was electric, it has gas hook up and a electric plug as well , can it be bothZ?


Yes, it will be both. A straight electrical dryer is hooked up to 220 volts of electricity and uses that voltage to run both the motor and the heater. In a gas dryer, you only need 120 volts to run the motor and run the igniter for the gas, which provides the heat to dry your clothes. Hope this helps!

Frigidarie stove model#PLGFZ390ECB burners and broiler works oven dont replace iginitor still do not work.


Good Afternoon Cheryl,

I understand that the burners and broiler are working in your Frigidaire range, model# PLGFZ390ECB, but the bake element does not work. I also see that you have replaced the igniter and it is still not working. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine why your oven will not come on. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Whirlpool dryer newly hooked up and will not heat. Do they have a reset button. Tumbler moves. It is gas. electronic ignition?


Make sure that your gas valve is on, if there is no gas, it won't be able to ignite and therefore no heat. It is possible that the unit is defective as well. If you are sure that you have the gas line hooked up and the valve is on, also make sure you have the proper electrical connection. Most gas dryers are 120V and a standard receptacle is used. If all of that is correct, then I would suggest calling the tech support number in the information on the unit or call the retail establishment you purchased it at.

Kenmore 80 series Gas Dryer


HI. you are correct. this dryer, although gas, is using a Glow igniter system. most older models used the snap igniter that clicks over and over to spark the burner but, this dryer is only 2 years old so, it should be outfitted with a glow igniter system. This igniter is powered by electricity.

It works in conjunction with a Flame sensor.
