    Same here... I can the heating element turn slightly red through the vent system, but it doesn't appear to be hot enough to light the gas. It will occasionally, once it has been sitting or not used (say, overnight), but after one or two cycles it won't even turn red.

Try removing the jets and clean them out. the pilot may be off center and in need of calibration.

Dryer hot at first and then stay cold


Sounds like the thermocouple needs replaced. When ever the couple doesn't make enough electricity the gas valve is shut down automatically. Sounds like your thermocouple is right at the threshold of minimum voltage and doesn't generate enough voltage to keep valve open.

If not that try YouTube for some good diagnostic videos:

My whirlpool gold dryer doesn't have any heat coming from it. Could my pilot light be out?


Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes 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 differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check outthis electric no heat tip...

The pilot lights up, but when the thermostat is calling for heat nothing comes out. Basically the pilots on but the burners wont light.

Dryer pilot light goes on then goes right out. dryer wont heat


Hi there. Soon as the pilot switches off (will still be red hot but fade away rapidly) the gas valve should turn on. (make sure gas supply is on) If valve doesn't turn on, check sensor located very near pilot element.
When the sensor "feels" the heat of the pilot, it switches the pilot off and the gas valve on.
Thanks

Kenmore dryer not heating


hi,
1) When this happens, something has interrupted the heat source. Run the dryer for a couple of minutes to see if it gets hot. Be sure you don't have the dial or controls on a non-heat setting, such as "Fluff" or "Wrinkle Control."






 


2) On an electric dryer, this may mean that the circuit breaker or fuse that controls the power has blown; reset or replace this. Be aware that a dryer may have two breakers or fuses. The motor will run when one works, but the heating element requires both.

3) On a gas dryer, recheck the control's setting to be sure it's not on a heat-free setting. Check the gas valve behind the dryer to be sure the gas supply is turned on. Also make sure the house's main gas valve is turned on.

4) Most modern dryers have electronic ignition instead of a pilot light. If yours has electronic ignition and isn't heating, call a qualified repairperson.

On an older dryer, make sure the pilot light is burning. If it isn't, relight it. You can find directions in your owner's manual, and pilot light instructions are often mounted next to the pilot light on the burner, too.


Thanks for using FixYa
