Hi, thanks for using FixYa.com. Most gas dryer heat complaints are the result of faulty gas coils. They are located directly on the gas valve which is in the front left corner of your dryer. They are inexpensive and easily replaced. However, there are thermal fuses that can cause no heat issues as well. An easy way to determine where to start is by listening closely to what happens the moment you turn the machine on. If you hear a fairly loud "click" and no heat, the coils are likely bad. If there is no "click" and the machine just starts, likely a thermal fuse.

Model#110.79622800 my dryer ignite only red hot but no flame.only on and off red hot.


Hello,

since the ignotor comes on and gets red hot then goes off yet no flame, the problem with your dryer is the gas valve coils

The part# for the coil kit is 12001349 using a google search you could find them online for a price range of $ 3.00 way up to $45.00

Dryer not blowing hot air


When you say 220 gas dryer I'm not sure what you mean. If it's 220V then it should be an electric dryer, not a gas dryer. Troubleshooting is totally different between gas and electric. If it's electric (large 30A 220V plug) then good chance heating element(s) have gone bad. You can look up parts on www.searspartsdirect.com Have your complete model number. IF it's gas, it may be the pilot ignition has failed

Gas dryer starts to tumble but it doesn't get hot and dry clothes


It's either a ignitor or the gas valve. Is this something that you could work on?

Dryer not hot


Tht means that the element is not heating on.

You need to call a technician to test the element, the thermic sensor, and the control assembly.

The most likely is a defective heating element, that must be replaced.

Gas dryer work but doesn't get hot


Tell your natural gas company that you smell gas around your gas dryer and you think there may be a leak. They will send somebody out, at no cost to you to check on the appliance (gas dryer). When that person gets there, they will re-light your appliance and if the gas dryer needs a new thermal coupler, they will show you where it's at and how to replace it.
