Generally, with a gas dryer, there is an ignition device that heats to a specific temperature and this causes the gas to ignite. When this electric ignition fails to work, the gas will not ignite and there will be no heat. I had this happen and had to call a professional. It was a simple matter of installing a new ignition device and it worked perfectly for years. I hope this helps! If it is a new dryer, check to see if this part might be covered under warranty

It just stopped heating


If you have a gas dryer the burner is ignited by a eletroniic ignitor. It will make a ckicking noise upon starting it when set in the heat mode. You should hear the click or clicking noise it makes within 30 seconds after starting the dryer. If no click is heard, replace the spark ignitor
