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.

Fan goes from high to low low for about 10 mins. and then kicks back into high. What's wrong?


That only means its working fine, is the vehicle heating UP?
if NO then leave it alone. Just check the antifreeze in the radiator when the engine is cold and if its full then don't worry about the fan.

Temp gauge stays cold


If the thermostat is bad (i.e. stuck open at all times), this would allow coolant to circulate in the engine even when it is below the desired operating temperature. This leads to OVERcooling of the engine. You can either replace the thermostat as a first step or remove it and test it -- closed when cold, open when heated above 190-200F.

The heater element is not heating, they are fragile easy to get to at the back of the dryer. Check the thermal or overheat switch too, but would bet its the heater element.

It wont stay on high setting


take out of can or case, and thoroughly chemically clean with coil cleaning solution avail at Standard appliance, The foaming mild acid type is best! be careful it will burn you in a few mins if left on skin!
It goes on liquid and foams out the debris and chemically strips the surface for max heat transfer, If the evap coil is obstructed (as will happen quickly w/out filter) the sensor on your coil is turning off the comp as the coil isnt being loaded up with any heat load and it shuts off.
Make sure the air exiting the unit isnt obstructed or blowing into a closed area like garage or patio etc. if that doesnt do it adjust the sensor away from the coil just a bit and experiment. they all need to be cleaned as stated at least every other year min! to ever expect to work well.

Replace both coils on the burner valve . After heating up , they will not open to let gas thru again until cooled down for a short period of time . With no heat , timer will not cut off unless set for timed dry .
