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.

My dryer gets hot but doest dry my clothes i lifted the top and spun the barrell around and noticed that the seal is torn could that be the cause


Sounds like a belt problem with no clothes in the dryer turn the dryer on for a minute or so open the door if the drum is spinning it not belt if drum is not spinning it's more that likely the belt that turns the drum.also need to check the exhaust hose in back of dryer it could have a blockage check lint screen also.Hope this helps.

What could be causing inside of the drum of my AD55 F&P dryer to very hot?


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Blower Wheel A defective blower wheel will not spin properly and will not vent the hot air, making the dryer too hot. Check to see if there is adequate airflow out of the dryer.

Felt Seal Most dryers have a felt seal at the front and rear of the drum to keep the heat inside the drum. If the felt seal is worn away or missing, the dryer may keep heating and make the dryer too hot. This is not common.


Cycling Thermostat Although not common, a defective cycling thermostat can make the dryer too hot. The cycling thermostat is supposed to turn on and off the heat to maintain the proper temperature. If the thermostat is defective it may keep the heat on too long. The thermostat is not adjustable or repairable, it must be replaced.

Air Flow Problem Dryers need good ventilation to work properly. If the vent is clogged it can make the dryer too hot. Clean all of the vent tubing thoroughly.

Heating Element Assembly A defective heating element assembly can make a dryer too hot. If the element partially shorts out, it can produce heat all the time, regardless of whether the dryer is calling for heat. Remove the heating element assembly to inspect it. The coils should not be touching each other or anything else.

Gas dryer gets hot but the drum doesn't turn. Broken belt?


open the door to the dryer and inside the rimof the door there is a switch, puch the switch in and with the oppisite hand puch the start button on the dryer. if the drum does not spin then you know its the belt. Pull Lint vent out if top mounted and remove the 2 screws, Between the top of dryer and the front panel, stick a putty knife roughly 3 inches from the side of dryer. There are locks that you will unlock with putty knife. once top is removed at top corners of front panel inside you will find 1 swcrew on each corner, and pull off front panel, slip new belt in and start putting things back together.

Dryer Gets Hot..But doesnt Spin


I don't know what kind of dryer you have, top or front loading, but it top loading it most likely is the belt that goes from the motor & wraps around the drum.
