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...

Kenmore gas dryer 80series model 110.c72852101


if you hear the valve clicking but no gas the valve is bad.when the burner lights theres a probe that senses that it is lit and sends a microvoltage back to the controller to tell its lit.check to make sure all ground wires are grounded to a clean metal surface.

Lights but dosint stay lit


If the dryer ignites but goes out immediately, the issue is a heat sensor. if the dryer ignites electromagnetic solenoid coils which are mounted on the gas valve assembly are weak and need to be replaced. you can buy these at an appliance store. be sure to call before you take the trip and have your model number handy.

How do you replace the belt ona wirlpool electric dryer


I would think there is a tension bar that takes up play on the belt ,this will have to be released.You will have to remove the back of the dryer or front depending on the model. Then you can move the small pulley with the bar with your hand,it is not that strong so hand strength should do it.Good luck.

Gas dryer not lighting


Is the gas on? Is the glow igniter glowing? If it is really old and has a "standing pilot" is it lit.

The most common problem is the ceramic glow igniter is bad.

General question on pilot light


Gas dryers have electronic ignition. No pilot to worry about. Dry away. Careful, don't lose those socks now. Have a good day.

Wont light


Is there a spark? or do you need a long match? The button usually just opens the pilot so it can be lit. If its not electronic.

Wirlpool gas drier flame comes on for the initial start then goes out and wont come back on to finish drying clothes?


Problem -
Gas flame comes on first few times then quits and igniter keeps cycling on and off but never lets the gas go.
Answer ( most common ) -
Replace the coils on the Gas Valve.

I had a problem much the same as you and replaced the coils. Works like a charm now.
