Question about Dryers
I have a whirlpool that wont heat. No lint checked that. Gas going into dryer check. Good voltage in plug check. Plugged in check. When started the dryer tumbles, after 2-3 seconds the igniter glows for 8-10 secs w/o ignighting the gas. I have listened for a click but am unable to hear well enough to tell if it is or is not clicking. What next!?
I would change out the igniter, When they start failing hey will glow but not draw enough amps to open the gas switch / valve.

If your dryer is not heating, then check if the power cord is plugged into the wall. It may be loose or disconnected. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working. Now, check whether the heating element in your gas dryer is burned out by using an ohm meter to check for continuity. If the continuity is not there then you would need to replace the element. After checking the element, check out the thermal fuse to see if it's burned out. The thermal fuse is attached to the exhaust duct on the back panel of the gas dryer. It's usually surrounded by a black resin material situated in a housing made of white plastic. If the fuse looks like it
