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.

Dryer runs but does not get hot and dry


It runs since the motor is still working and turning the drum. No heat since the heater element is broken so no heat got produced to dry clothes. Replace the heater element to correct the problem. Good luck

My GE Profile Harmony Dryer is no longer Heating


Does it get hot when you turn it on, and then never gets hot again while its running? On my dryer the solenoid broke, when the dryer was cold it worked and the dryer operated properly because the dryer and solenoid were cold and the solenoid wire was closed, when the dryer was hot enough the solenoid opened and the heat would not restart. the solenoid is a coiled wire which is used to open the gas valve.

Our kenmore eliite HE4 gas dryer keeps shutting off after a few minutes of running no mattter what heat setting we put it on. On air dry mode it works. Is this a high heat sensor problem? The unit is 4...


You didn't mention if the dryer is getting hot.


If is getting hot, then shutting off, I agree with you.

If it is NOT getting hot, I would suspect the IGNITER ASSY

Dryer does not get hot enough to dry clothes Roper REX4634KQ1 Electric Dryer


Most common cause of this is a clogged venting going to the outside to test this remove the vent from the back of the dryer and run a load if it drys ok them you know you have a venting issue and will need to be cleaned out if not plz repost and we can look deeper into it
