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.

Dryer not drying clothes


Hello, does the dryer drum turn? If the dryer drum is moving. Is the dryer blowing hot air, cold air, no air at all? Now, if it's doing everything mention above escept blowing hot air then you'll need a new heating element. If not blow air, then the drum belt is broken, belt off, or the drum motor has gone south. It was put for a quitt. Which mean in New Mexico, they fired me, I don't work, no job, finished, I'am out of here, don't bury me with my wires exposed. I hope I was some help to you. have a nice day and be safe, GB. stewbison

The dryer hose fills with water, the lint trap never catches anything and the roof of the dryer gets hot but the clothes wont get dry. Any ideas? Thx


It sounds like you have no fan blowing. OR the vent is completely blocked so no air flow.

You could check fan by disconnecting the vent hose in back, and turn dryer on. Is is blowing a good volume of air? If so then you need to look at the vent. Any critter build a home in there? etc..

If there is no significant air blowing from the vent, you'll need to figure out why the fan is not blowing.
It's possible the fan is turning but is choked up and unable to move the air.
Perhaps the fan is bad, or there is a capacitor gone bad,.
That's as far as I can go from here.
Others may assist you further..

Can 3431 be converted to a regular vented dryer?


You cannot convert this model. This unit blows hot air into drum and the water is turned to steam and exhausted out through the pump to the drain. Unlike regular dryers that blow hot air into drum, creating link and just heat that blow out vent.

Dryer gets too hot


if it gets too hot with new limit you might need to take dryer to neighbors yard and blow out all lint from whole unit from the lint filter, blower, indide and exhaust hose and also check the flapper where the air goes outside
and blowing out the lint from an old dryer with an air compressor makes a BIG MESS
good luck

Conia CCD4501 cloths dryer not blowing hot air anymore


If you can turn it on and have the door open, hold the door switch in and see if you have a glow from the heating element. If not, your element is broken. That is if it is an electric dryer. If it is a gas dryer you need to check the pilot light or the thermo sensor.

My dryer is ot blowing hot air


Remove the heater vent, then turn dryer on. Does this fix problem? If so then you have a block in your vent hose.
