Dryer has never had a single problem until the other day the "heat" just stopped. Dryer still has power and runs. Help... Rob charleston,SC


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...

Gas drier Whirlpool LGR5634LQ0 drum turns, no heat. Turn off and restart, heats for a while then no heat for drying. Lint is clear, etc... Gas valve is in on position. Not sure what to do next. Check...


most gas dryers will have a problem with the 2 coils on top of the valve.
when these coils are weak or going bad, it will heat for a short while then no heat at all.
if you let the unit set for an hour or 2, it will heat again for a short peroid.
the coils are easy to replace, but do get both of them.

No heat


Should be a cover about the size of a quarter on the front lleft bottom...pop off with a small screwdriver and start dryer....look inside and see if the glow bar lights up...if glow bright orange, probably good, may need gas solenoids or ignitor

Hi thanks for the question. most times the problem is with the thermal fuse . failure is caused by clogged venting. clean all vents . the thermal fuse is located on the air duct, inside the dryer on the left , a small piece of plastic, with 2 blue wires to it . replace thermal fuse. thanks the appliance doc
