Dryer is only 2 years old. We moved it out of the laundry room to install tile flooring, it was working fine when we disconnected it. We moved it back in and now it will not heat up. We have checked the gas line, and the lint trap.
When we first moved it back in it came on once or twice and then just quit heating.

You can install tile over tile. However here are the risks. The new tiles will require at least 3/16" of tile adhesive UNDER the tiles when put in place after they have been pressed into position. Additionally the trim around the tiles willhave to be removed and elevated the distance of the tile thickness and the 3/16" grout distance. The tiles if on the second floor of a home will easily losen due to the expansion and contraction of the home and the difference in the 2 types of tiles expansion and contraction rates.
It is not difficult to remove old tiles. You use a flat bar type scraping tool and the old tiles usually will pop right up off the floor. You will have to break maybe 2 tiles to get started but after that they are easy to remove.
My experience in my own fully tiled in all rooms 2900 sq ft home in the tropics is that I have to remove the old tiles as over time the new tiles losen on top of the old tiles. I have tried it several times and have had at least 1 tile come loose each time.
check to see if the shipping rods have been removed,also if machine is located on upper floor laundry room,the floor may not be sturdy enough to counter act the force generated during spin,this is a common issue in newer homes
Is your dryer electric with the big plug.
If so, what kind of changes are you making?
The dryer needs to be by the vent outlet so you can't move it far unless you are going to cut a new venting outlet.
If it is electric (not gas) then do not try to extend the cord. Have a licensed electrician move the electrical jack.
The cord has a large amount of current running through it and the longer the cord, the more resistance the current has to flow through. More resistance means more heating of the cord and less voltage for your dryer. This can result in the cord overheating to the point of melting and starting a fire itself or getting hot enough to ignite the very fine and very dry lint particles that are present in any laundry room.
This is a situation where you spend the money and have it done professionally because of the danger of fire, death, etc.
need to know if its gas or electric, easy way to tell is to look at the power cord going into the dryer, does it plug in next to the washer or does it have a thicker heavier plug near the floor? thicker plug means its electric, smaller cord means gas. Dryers are dangerous appliances. If you have any doubt what yoru doing stop and write here or call a pro. Be careful to shut the breaker off in the fuse box or shut the gas off outside the house before you do anything else. Most likely if its electric the element burnt and you need a new assembly, or if its gas has their been a disruption of gas service lately? How ******* is your laundry room? You should always leave the door open to your laundry room so the dryer can breathe. If you come to find that your laundry room may not have enough airflow, the thermocouple in a gas dryer will go if it cant breathe also. let us know
