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...

GE gas dryer DSXH47GGWW- starts fine and begins to heat up then shuts off with a message that the lint filter needs cleaned. The lint filter has been completely cleaned and vacumed inside, outside and...


Hello,

With no lint anywhere around the dryer the thing to check if havent already is the venting itself to see if outside it is blowing and not restricted or blocked

The control is sensing poor air flow and throws up the "clean filter" when air flow is restricted all be it from the filter clogged, or blocked/restricted vent

Air vents won't move nor will the heat to cool vent move


Sounds like you have a broken vacum hose somewhere or it became disconnected. I would look under the hood for very small vacum hose near the firewall or near or disconected vacum hose near evaporator case.

Drum rotates but does not heat. I';ve taken apart the entire vent and cleaned it. Still no heat.


You have to use a multimeter to find the component that has failed

No air from vents or defrost but fan works


You more than likely have a vacume hose that has come off at the vent switch or under the hood. Unfortunatly you will have to pull the vet switch out of the dash to see if there are any vac. lines off. You can visibly inspect the rubber and plastic vacume lines under the hood. Just be careful how you handle the plastic lines as they become brittle from the heat under the hood after a period of time.

Air vents


I was having a similar problem with the vents not redirecting air when selected. I went onto the auto zone wed site and found very helpful schmeatic diagrams for electrical and vacume systems. That lead me to investigate a possible vacume leak. There was a vacume hose broken tucked away by the battery. I repaired the hose with thick wall heat tape and now the vents move normally. The vacume starts on the P/S top of engine runs by the battery into the fore wall. Once in the P/S foot well you will see a purple hose that you can quickly check the vacume pressure. It should be a noticable vacume. If not work your way back to the engine. If you do have a good vacume there then I would suggest going to a auto wreckers and picking up a new heater control module for around $90.00 in stead of the $240.00 fro the dealer. All you need is a phillips screw driver to replace it.
