Clean/repair the dryer vent. If the airflow is restricted the result is the one you just described.

Good luck,

Dryer not getting hot


Try cleaning out the lint trap really well and make sure there is clear airflow in the dryer vent hose (usually long silver tube coming out the back of the dryer). Sometimes lint can build up over time in the hose and impede airflow which causes the dryer to still heat up a bit, but it won't get hot. Without proper airflow, it will not get hot enough to dry clothes efficiently.

Gas valve no stared


The gas assembly has 3 components and all are wired together. When the gas valve assembly is fired up the sensor, the glowcoil, and the solenoids are all energized at once. But he gas will not come out unless the ignitor is removed from the circuit. It gets removed when it reached 1800f at which time the sensor trips and kills the power to the glowcoil. The energy is now strong enough to open the gas up and allow it out and onto the glowcoil. Over time the solenoids get weak when they get hot. So if the flame sensor and glowcoil both work but the flames don't ignite you will want to replace them solenoids.themobilian_2006.jpg

Dryer control doesn't move on less dry more dry setting and will not shut off when clothes are dry.


If clothes are hot then try dryer on timed dry. If timer does not move then timer is most likely bad . Replace. If timer moves on timed dry it is not getting hot enough to click the cycling thermostat.(If clothes are overly hot above 160 then the cycling therm. is stuck Replace.

Dryer (electric) seems to heat up initially, then cool off and not get hot enough to dry clothes. What is wrong?


Check the following areas thoroughly to address this issue.


1. Venting
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

2. Thermostat
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.(usually located inside the unit on the actual blower housing or inside the vent duct)

3. Heating element
A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes. Replace the element if found defective.

I have a Whirlpool gold Ultimate Care II gas dryer and 2/3 times the ignitor glows and lights the gas, 1/3 times it won't. When the gas does light, it doesn't seem like it's getting hot enough to do...


I would suggest the coils on the gas valve . Also check the vent to make sure good air flow is getting out of the dryer . Try disconnecting the vent hose and drying a load to determine if maybe the vent is the problem .

Zanussi tumble dryer does not get very hot


Hi, I take it from the description taht you have given your T/dryer is a condenser? If this is the case you could be looking at several problems? 1 it could be the large filter underneath the tumble dryer this could be blocked with fluff causing it not to condense quick enough! 2 it could be the water collection pump? Can you her it running? 3 It could be that half the heater has failed causing it not to get hot enough to dry?
Try these hopefully it should steer you in the right direction!

Kenmore Heating Element


There are levels of heat according to cycle and some driers do not use all the coils during low heat cycles. They rarely need replace unless visably broken. There could be a loose connection.
