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.

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.

Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

Maytag LDG7400 gas dryer does not stay lit long enough to heat the drum. Can see flame turn on for about 10 seconds then back off for 20 to 30 seconds. Continues cycle of on and off until end of time....


Light sensors detect when burners are lit. If they become blocked with lint, dust, etc., they will not detect the flame and, for safety purposes, automatically shut off the gas flow.

Dust and lint are a dryer's worst enemy. Be sure that all sensing devices (particularly optical sensors) are clear of dust and lint so that light can pass unobstructed into the lens.

If they sensors are all clean, they might be defective. Something is erroneously telling your dryer's control that the burners are not lit and thus the gas supply is shut down.

Dryer not drying


First thing to check is the vent. Make sure you have sufficient air flow to the outside. If you are not sure if you have the proper rate of flow, disconnect the vent from the dryer, turn dryer on and see if burner stays on longer. Do this with a couple of damp, spun-dry towels inside the drum. If the burner short cycles again, you need to replace the coils on top of the burner assembly. These are the two black round coils.

Flame wont stay on and have replaced the flame sensor


You have a limit switch that is tripping. I bet it is the flame roll out switch that is very close to the burners. You can bypass this switch to check if it is the one causing the problem by removing the two wires going to it and installing a small jumper wire between them. If the unit starts up, then that's the problem and if not, check all of them. But that's pretty much the only thing it can be. But, you need to double check that the unit is being told to come on and not cutting out intermittently. I doubt it though!
