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.

check out this electric no heat tip...

My dryer is not getting hot its not drying clothes even when they have been in for 3 hours


Is dryer getting warm at all. If it is your heater and t-stats are fine. Make sure it is exhausting to uotside properly. Turn dryer on and go to outside exhaust. you should leel air coming thru pretty good. If low air flow pull dryer from wall, disconnect hose at wall and using leaf blower blow the exhaust out to the outside. Impotant thing to remember is blow from behind dryer at the wall to the ouside. Not outside in. Also, electric works better than gas blower due to exhaust fumes caused by gas leaf blowers.

Gas dryer get hot but than goes cold


This sounds like a problem with your fan motor. The dryer is getting too hot and the gas is shutting off until it cools down. That fan keeps the dryer cool by moving the heat to the clothes in the drum.
You can easily check this by feeling for air flow in front of the exhaust vent outside. No air movement = fan problem = heat shut off in 10 minutes. Good luck

My dryer stopped heating. Everything else seems to work. It still runs, but only feel cold air.


Electric or Gas?

If electric, the element is gone or a fuse blew or the airflow thru the dryer is restricted or a sensor is bad and 'lying' to the CPU. Check the filter, check the hoses for lint, check the outside vent flap to be sure it isn't stuck (possibly painted) closed. The air has to BLOW a certain CFM or neither ELEC or GAS type will turn on.

If Gas, the pilot isn't lit or the electronic ignition isn't firing or the gas supply valve is bad/stuck or the thermocouple that tells the CPU that the 'heat is on is 'lying' or the sensor that tells the CPU the Air movement is OK' is bad.

My dryer wouldnt heat because a thermocouple in the exhaust pipe was lying - stuck ON and telling the dryer it was already hot enough. ;-)

If you do the troubleshooting, do NOT forget to unplug first!

We have a GE profile harmony gas dryer that is running but is not sucking in air, blowing out air or heating up.


This dryer has two motors one is specific for the blower system I'd guess the blower motor is not functioning and the dryer will not heat due to safety features. I would check those things but also check the venting from the back of the dryer to the outside of the house to make sure there is no blocked airflow just a general maintainance. Hope this helps.

Dryer is acting up. so, it hasnt been used in about 2 months.  it sat out in a cold garage.  but was back up to 'room temp' when we hooked it up.  the gas line is secure.  the venting is proper.  the dryer's level.   after turning it on, not much has happened.  a faint 'beeping' signal comes out of it every few seconds or so, and signal lasts about 2 secs.  the dryer will tumble and kinda gets a weak luke-warm.  i heard this clicking (blower motor i think) as if it were a rotating clicking noise.  then i heard what sounded like a piece of plastic drop.  then poof! the blower kicked on and the dryer started crankin'! working great.  thought maybe something needed to settle.   note* i did have this dryer on its side while moving it in the back of my pick-up truck.  (which was covered from the elements w/ a cap & laid on soft blankets).* after several uses some serious noises started coming out of it.  a severe clicking rotating plastic thumping, sounded like hard plastics banging, clicking rotating, hard to explain.. i reset the dryer.  now it starts up, and just rotates, blower never kicks on.  doesnt really get hot, back to a weak luke-warm.  (i threw a wet towel in there..nothing, no heat/blower)  nothing going through the vent either.  so..i was thinking about pulling the back off, but figured i'd ask you guys first. also, do you think it's worth it to call in a Sears professional?  costs involved?   yeah man, any help would be appreciated, the thing's out of warranty, and well..i need a working dryer, full household.  laundry piles up!   - thx, Angelo
