Hi,

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.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

Gew9200lw1 whirlpool dryer turns on, spins but doesn't heat up


hello, this is Mike. If your dryer turns on, tumbles, but there's no heat, I would bet that your heating element is toast. If you can access the terminals to the heating element, you can test them for continuity using a simple inexpensive tester. No continuity means they need to be replaced. If you would like some assistance with how to go about this and possibly fix the problem yourself, feel free to contact me. I would be happy to help you. thanks

Motor/Drum doesn't turn/spin & belt appears to be OK


With the belt off can you spin the motor freely by hand? If no then the bearings are froze and the motor has to be replaced. If yes and the motor will not start when power is applied then the motor needs to be replaced. If it starts without the belt on but not with, then the drum is bound somewhere and has to be freed.

Dryer won't heat


The first thing to check would be the power, I know that sounds silly since the drum turns but your electric dryer uses 240 volts to heat and only 120 to run the drum. Check the circuit breaker or fuse by turning it off completely then back on.

If that does not fix the problem you have one of two components that have failed. Either the thermal cutoff or the heating element. The cut off is a small two wire heat sensing switch located just above the heat element. They are both accessible from the back

Dryer Drum Won't Spin


Reach inside and grab ahold of the baffle. Try to spin the drum, it should have resistance. If it spins freely you have a broken belt. Hope that helps. Dave ww.washermd.com
