Ge gas dryer heats but doesnt dry


if the flame is lighting you have lint blocking the air flow either in the dryer or in the vent line,also if you have a flame for the first 10 to 20 minutes and then the flame doesn't light you have bad gas coils located on top of the gas valve,when the coils are bad they can work for the first 10 to 20 minutes until the coils get hot and then they fail and you'll see the ignitor glowing orange but no flame,bad gas coils.then when the coils cool down they can work again.hope this helps.you can try removing the vent line from the back of the dryer and see if the flame stays on,if lint is blocking the air from blowing out the flame won't stay lit long enough to dry the clothes.

Knemore he4 taking longer to dry clean vents has heat and blowing fine


make sure the lint filter duct is clean,you can remove the back panel if the filter is on top and remove the duct to clean it or if the filter is up front pop off the bottom panel,remove the filter and remove the duct,also if the vent line is long remove it from the back of dryer and stick a leaf blower in it and blow it to the outside,make sure there isn't a cage or anything blocking the outside hood,if there is remove what's there,also if this is a gas dryer you could have bad gas coils located on top of the gas valve,when the coils start to fail they will let the gas in until they heat up and then after around 15 to 30 minutes no more heat until they cool down again,you can run the dryer next time you use it and after 15 or 20 minutes remove the bottom panel or if filter is on top thee should be a cover on front panel,look at the ignitor,if it glows but no flame you have bad gas coils,hope this helps and next time send the full model number off of the machine you're having problems with

On my Kenmore Soft Heat Heavy duty gas dryer I am having problems with the the fire lighting and going off intermentently . The fact that it ignites and then goes out makes me think that it isn't...


Hello Jerry,

It is working like its supposed to when the flame goes off, the way all dryers work is the flame(heat element on electric heated dryers) comes on and when the drum exhaust temp reachs a maximum of 155degrees and the flame goes off, the air temp will cool off to 120degrees and the flame comes back on and cuts off once again the 155 degrees has been reached..much more that 155 degrees the clothing is very likely to combust and catch on fire.

Please reply and let me know if your having a dryability issue with your dryer or where you just concerned since the flame went off??

Kenmore gas dryer not heating up


ck/replace the 2 black coils on valve they will sometimes fail after 1st start up slight chance it may be flame sensor mounted on side of burner to ck remove the 2 wires and short together temporaily if flame stays on and reignites ckd vent system first bad flame may cause sensor to shut it off if flame/vent ok replace sensor

Dryer heats for 3 minutes, flame quits


the flame is suppose to cycle on and off. If the flame ran continously you would have a fire. And please don't use the top of it for anything such as clothes piles. Dryers need to be free of clutter on top. I know it may be hard to do but do it and your dryer will last you. Good Luck. Whatever you jumpered reverse it ok!

make sure that your vent is not plug up can you go outside your house and feel good air coming out the vent when the dryer is turn on if so the only other things it could be is the coils that sit on the ignotor assmebly or the high limit termistat is not working properly the coils are little black circle coils that sit in the ignitor assmly should have a metal braket across the top of them holding them in you can check resistance on these coils if you have an meter
