Hi,
When the dryer won't heat it is the thermostat/thermal fuse that is bad, you can test it with a voltmeter before replacing. This fuse is located inside the rear panel and it cannot be reset.
Hope this will help....

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 dryer does not heat up when we turn it on, was wondering if their is a pilot light to ignight?


That must be a gas dryer. Check if you are getting 120 V to the burner assembly. If you do check the ignitor. It is grey and sits next to where the gas comes out. It needs to get red hot to ignite the gas

My problem is when i start my dryer it ignights and runs till it heats up and the the flame goes out till it cools off and then ignights and so on


Hi- Sound like the high temp. thermostat is tripping. You may try running it without the vent attached and see if it will run that way. I have had this happen when the vent is too obstructed and the heat cant get out fast enough. Otherwise have someone out to look at it. Hope that helps a little.

Dryer won't heat up. Replaced ignighter, still


I would suspect faulty gas valve coils. These electrical coils are right above the gas valves and when energized these solenoids open the gas valves to permit gas flow to the burner. It's recommended that if any are suspected of being faulty that both (all) be replaced at the same time. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.
