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 runs but does not heat on maytag model med6000xw1


If you have a newer model with electronic ignition, check igniter by the burner, or if a pilot light ignition, obviously re-light, but possibly the gas safety interlock switch is tripped by a weak pilot flame, which causes main gas valve to stay off. Best guess, igniter element has cracked, and is simple to replace, order online.

Gas dryer dose not heat


Your ignition panel might need to be replaced. This is the part that heats to a certain temperature and lights the pilot. It is a fairly easy repair. You could call repairmen and ask their fee to replace the ignition panel. We had this done for a very reasonable price and our dryer lasted another 6 years.
I hope this help you. If it does, please come back to Fixya and rate my suggestion.
Thanks.

My pilot won't stay on i've tried several times.


Your problem is easy and frequent. The pilot light should heat up the thermouple which in return by the heat will keep the valve on for pilot light first and the burner light.

So either the pilot light is not reaching the thermocouple - this only if someone moves the pilot light

Or the thermocouple became weak and can hold the gas valve open - so replace the thermocouple with new one.

There is a very small possibility that the gas valve is faulty but you should replace the thermocouple in any case which is very cheap first and is the most possible cause.

Since you are already this far you have some knowledge of how you dryer works. What is wrong now is the heat sensor that picks up that the pilot is on. The pilot should burn at a steady flame when you turn the dryer on to heat this in turn heats a probe next to the piolit this is a type of heat sensor. When the probe or heat sensor senses heat it tells the gas valve that its okay to turn on. Have a great day and hope this helps.

Dryer not heating w/o indication


It's very possible that you need a new heating coil. This is an easy do-it-yourself fix if it's an electric dryer. Save all your receipts and purchase the replacement part from a business that will give your a refund (minus a small restocking fee perhaps).

Roeper Gas Dryer not heating


 If your unit has a standing pilot, is the pilot lit?  If not, push the Basso control button and light it according to the instruction sticker.
Next, the main thing you should suspect is the capillary tube.  This thin tube runs from a hollow bolt on the gas control to the gas burner. If defective, it will not allow the unit to light off further.  Remove the tube, take it to the hardware store and get a replacement and install.  If these two items don't fix the unit, get professional help.

Dryer tumbles but doesn't heat


When this happens, something has interrupted the heat source. Run the dryer for a couple of minutes to see if it gets hot. Be sure you don't have the dial or controls on a non-heat setting, such as "Fluff" or "Wrinkle Control." On an electric dryer, this may mean that the circuit breaker or fuse that controls the power has blown --check and replace or reset. Be aware that a dryer may have two breakers or fuses: the motor will run when one works, but the heating element requires both. On a gas dryer, recheck the control's setting to be sure it's not on a heat-free setting. Check the gas valve behind the dryer to be sure the gas supply is turned on. Also make sure the house's main gas valve is turned on. On an older dryer, make sure the pilot light is burning. If it isn't, re-light it. You can find directions HERE or in your owner's manual (pilot light instructions are often mounted next to the pilot light on the burner, too). Note: Most modern dryers have electronic ignition instead of a pilot light. If yours has electronic ignition and isn't heating, call a qualified repair person.
