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.

Low heat from lgn1000pq1


90% of dryer problems are caused by a clogged lint filter. Make sure the lint filter is clean. When it is clean, you should be able to see through it.
Next, make sure the vent is clear and not clogged with lint.

My dryer is taking way to much time to dry a basic load


The problem is either a blocked lint filter or a restricted vent system if the dryer heats up normally or a faulty cycling thermostat if the dryer heats up erratically. Check and make sure the lint filter is clear. You may need to have a contractor have the vent system checked and cleaned as it is necessary to clean them at least once year or every six months if 4 to 5 loads are done everyday. Restricted vent system impedes the airflow and therefore the disposing of the steam it carries. This consequently results in the longer drying time.

Replace the cycling thermostat if the dryer is heating up erratically or does not heat up sufficiently.

Maytag EPIC dryer runs but does not get warm and therefore the clothes do not dry.


Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
It normally takes about 45 minutes for a dryer to dry a full load. If your dryer is taking more than an hour, check these.
Vent Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance. Heating element Your dryer's heating element may be partially burned out. If it is, your dryer still heats, but at such a low temperature that it takes three or four times as long to dry the clothes. If the element is partially burned out, replace it. To determine if the heating element is burned out, watch the part testing video at the bottom of this page. Internal ductwork Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum, contact a qualified appliance repair technician. Cycling thermostat Although this isn't a common problem, one of the thermostats that controls the temperature in your dryer may break and cause the dryer to heat poorly. If so, you need to replace it. The thermostat is usually a small, round, black device mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate is mounted to the internal ductwork with two screws.

Lgq9858pw dryer. Clothes would come out damp and cold. I replaced 2 thermostats (?) in the rear of the unit, located on the heat shield. The clothes now come out warm, not hot, but still damp. Any ideas?


if you popped the high limit thermostat that usuallt pops when the dryer needs to be cleaned out.pull out the lint filter,unplug the dryer,remove the two phillips screws in front of the filter,go in the back,remove the vent line remove the back panel and remove the duct that the lint filter slides into and clean it out,if you can't remove the duct push it to the right and vac out the blower wheel and pull the duct out towards you so you can get the vac into the duct to clean it,also if you have a brush you can brush all the lint down to the bottom and vac it up.if the vent line is a long run to the outside i use a leaf blower to blow out the vent line,go outside first and make sure the vent is clear so the lint will blow outside.one or both of these sound like it's blocked with lint or you can also have bad gas coils.the coils work for the first 15 to 30 minutes and stop working when they heat up.after they cool down they will work again until they get hot.you can start the dryer,pull off the plastic cover on the left side so you can see the flame ignite,watch the flame lite,after 15 to 30 minutes go back and look into the hole,if the flame isn't liting you know the coils are failing.easy fix,unplug the dryer,the coils are on top of the gas valve,remove the two pillips screws,remove the cover and replace the coils,part number 279834 and they are around 20 dollars,you get both coils instead of getting them separate.you should clean the dryer once every year so the dryer runs like it should,clothes drying on time,your parts will last longer and you don't have to worry about any lint fires

It over heats and turns off but clothes still damp


You might consider checking to make sure your vent pipe and lint filter are clear if you have not already done so. These dryers are prone to lint build up where the lint filter is inserted and can this can impact drying. You can also remove the vent pipe where it connects to the dryer and see if it works better. If it does your vent pipe may need to be cleaned. Let me know if the suggestions help. .

Dryer stops(over-heats) after approx. 30 min.


This is usually caused by poor airflow. Check for lint buildup in yout vent and around your lint filter. Vacuum any buildup out of the vent and the outside flapper vent. Flexible vent hoses can also get clogged. If you find build up around your lint filter don't use sharp objects to clear obstructions. Without a model number am only giving common reasons. why there are overheating problems. If you dryer has a belt driven blower it could be a worn belt bearing or pulley. Good Luck I think you can solve this one yourself.

The dryer will not produce heat and blowing lint


check where your dryer vent goes through your outside wall they sometimes clog up with lint and cause the escaping heat to recirculate back to your dryer causing the sensor to read the dryer as too hot clear all lint from the outside vent so you can feel the air coming out very steadily and quickly If this works you are all set otherwise check your heating element

Dryer runs for long time and does not heat up to dry clothes


Check first to see if the lint filter is clean and the vent hose is clear. If the filter is clean, the vent hose is unblocked and not crimped, and the exterior vent is clear then you probably need to replace the heating element.
Hope this helps. Good luck.
