Hi



If your dryer is not heating, then check if the power cord is plugged into the wall. It may be loose or disconnected. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working. Now, check whether the heating element in your gas dryer is burned out by using an ohm meter to check for continuity. If the continuity is not there then you would need to replace the element. After checking the element, check out the thermal fuse to see if it's burned out. The thermal fuse is attached to the exhaust duct on the back panel of the gas dryer. It's usually surrounded by a black resin material situated in a housing made of white plastic. If the fuse looks like it

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 .

I have whirlpool dryer that the heat seems to kick on and off it is gas dryer


If heats for a few minutes then cuts off (heat) , then the 2 coils on the burner valve are probably bad . OR check the vent hose to the outside for good air flow . Sometimes , a dryer is pushed too far back , and it kinks the vent hose . If coils are bad , when dryer cools down , then restarting , cool coils will heat again for a few minutes , then stop heating till they cool off again .

GE dryer willl not stop, drys OK


I does sound like the timer has went out on your dryer, but there could be other problems as well.  Sometimes exccesive lint build-up can cause a heat transfer issue with the thermostats.  On GE models, anything o stop or delay heat transfer could cause the timer to stop working.  If im not mistaken, this is a gas dryer correct?  It could be a number of things that could stop the forward motion of the timer, primarily a stuck or inoperative thermostat, a defective flame sensor (highly doubtful if it dries), or a wiring problem.  Be sure to check out all your wiring, then if you wanted to, try and replace the thermostats.  Just dont want to see you waste a lot of money if it was a bad timer.
