It is in the bottom under the drum...

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.

Kenmore dryer not heating


Check the following-- Gas valve coils Igniter glows, then shuts off without igniting gas - the problem is probably with defective coils (black, located on top of the gas valve). It is recommended to replace all coils (usually two or three) if found defective.

No Heat


Hi, I worked on one of these yesterday and have found that the thermal fuse blows first. If your dryer has the lint filter on top then the thermal fuse is behind the back panel and is located on the same duct as the lint filter.It will usually have blue wires on it instead of black or red.

There's a few things on this dryer that can stop it
from heating. 1st thing your going to need is an ohm meter, your testing simply for continuity. The main items that cause no heat at all on this gas dryer is the igniter on the gas valve, the thermal fuse located on the blower wheel housing the thermal cut out located on the burner box or the flame sensor on the burner funnel and lastly the coils on the gas valve. the sequence is from most too least common. Of course unplug it and shut the gas off.
