Hello & Welcome to FixYa If you have already tried cleaning the vent then the problem is with the Thermostat. When the thermostat goes bad it cannot be reset and replacing it is recommended repair.It is located on the blower wheel housing inside the rear panel to the exhaust duct. You can test it for continuity before replacing, if thermostat reads continuity then please get back to me if you have any other questions. Kevin

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating
the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows
sometimes it is still not working properly.
1) check and or clean you vent..
2) check air coming out of the vent...
a) if no air coming out or little amout of air ... check blower wheel ( remove toe panel. then remove blower cover.) wheel should be clean and clear ...
PS. there is a reset button on the back panel... black button about center..
hope it helps if NOT let me know more about your problem...
I had the same problem. Turns out the reset button on the back of the dryer needs to be pushed; when you push the reset button you should hear a click. If you do not hear a click the problem was probably not the reset button. The button shuts down the dryer heating elements if they are getting too hot and also keeps the drum from turning unless the start button is held down.
If you push the reset button and the dryer starts to work again, I strongly recommend that you stop the dryer and investigate why the heater elements overheated. In my case there was lint/hair build up on the heater elements themselves. Extensive dryer disassembly is required to properly clean the heating elements but it is worth the prevention of a house fire. While you're at it, clean the rest of the machine and the duct work.
check to see if the fans are loose if so replace them this will also cause poor drying time.iI find its better to dismanttle these dryers and check the rollers,belt and jockey pulley at the same time.they look hard to work on but they are easy just take you time theres generally no wires to undo.
