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.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

check out this electric no heat tip...

Kenmore 70 series model #97573200/stock # 75732. It's a gas dryer with an electric igniter. The problem is, dryer runs but there is no heat. I'm thinking there's a problem with the igniter? ...


if the ignitor is lighting up, the problem is going to be in the coils that are attached to the gas valve itself, heres what they look like http://www.applianceaid.com/images/2coilsgenaralgas.JPG

Kenmore dryer Model #6507923 Gas sometimes won't


You may have a bad thermocouple. The thermocouple senses the heat from the flame and "tells" the control unit that the flame has lit. If it is sending no signal, the control will think it didn't light and shut off the gas to prevent an explosion. Good luck.

Initial heat cycle will ignite gas burner but will not re-ignite to maintain heat.


MAKE SURE YOU HAVE GOOD VENTILATION TO OUTSIDE. CHECK THE COILS IN THE GAS VALVES. CHECK CONTINUITY ON BOTH COILS. SHOULD READ 1.3 - 1.9 OHMS. ON THE COIL WITH THREE TERMINAL, MEASURE BETWEEN MIDDLE TERMINAL AND OUTSIDE TERMINALS

Hi, Make sure the 4" vent is clean al the way outside. Make sure the vent hood in the wall is open. It sounds like the heat is short cycling do to poor air flow.
If the vent does not appear to be an issue, Watch the ignition while running and see if the ignitor glows later in the cycle and shuts down before the flame ignites. If this happens, you will need to change the coils on top of the gas valve. Please let me know if this helps you at all or if I can assist you further.

Thanks

Kenmore front load washer won't heat


The gas burner assembly uses solenoid coils in a circuit with the flame sensor to safely ignite the burner. When the dryer starts a heated cycle, the circuit through those components is energized. The igniter glows until it reaches the proper temperature to ignite the gas, at which point the flame sensor trips open and the current flowing through that circuit is diverted to the gas valve coils so the gas valves open, and the burner lights and continues to burn. If the solenoid coils on the gas valves fail, the gas valves won't open for ignition. If the gas valve coils are weak, the burner lights during the initial ignition sequence from a cold start but it fails to light the burner on subsequent ignition attempts. In this situation, replace the valve coils. I Had the same problem with mine and I fixed for like $25.00 US. Its not hard to do look at the video. Either buy your part from them or to get it fast and not out of this world go to "repairclinic.com

Kenmore gas dryer


That model does not have a pilot light.  It has an electronic ignitor.  If it is not igniting, either the igniter is not getting a signal to ignite, the igniter is burned out, or the gas solenoid is broken.  Probably the igniter is burned out.  It is item number 3018 at RepairClinic.com.
