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.

I will assume that you have cleaned the lint trap and checked that there is no lint stuck in the lint trap cavity

First, check the dryer vent. Any blockage anywhere in the vent will stop air flow. A dryer needs air flow to dry. Check every bit of it, even where it goes outside.

if that isn't the problem, then check your electrical connections. Your electric dryer runs on 220 volts, but it's really two wires carrying the electricity to the dryer at 110 volts each. If one of those wires isn't connected, the dryer could still turn on and spin, but it won't dry the clothes.

I learned that the hard way going through 2 dryers. Turned out one of the fuses in my apartment's fuse box had blown, but 2 fuses made up the 220v circuit. The dryer would spin and would work a little bit on low settings, but any other setting it would just spin and not dry at all. Replacing the fuse fixed the issue. With a breaker box, the 220v double breaker is connected, so if one trips, they both trip, and it wouldn't spin or turn on at all.

So check the socket with a multimeter (or have an electrician check it) and unplug and check the dryer cord making sure each connector is securely screwed in to the panel on the back. There is typically an access panel on the back of the dryer right next to where the cord goes in that you have to take off to get to the connection panel.

The last thing I would say a DIYer could look at is the heating element. If you take the back off, you can access the heating element and see if there is any lint or debri in there... if there is, clean it out and try the dryer... if it still doesn't work but there was debri in the heating element's channel, it could have burnt up a safty sensor that shuts the heating element off when it senses too much heat (fire, or potential to cause a fire) I suggest using and appliance repair man at this point.

Not catching lint or drying clothes


Hi Diane

Sounds like you have a clogged vent
If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system.
Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle:
The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature--say 135 degrees.
When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. (If there's a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough.)
The timer advances until the interior cools, then the thermostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again.
This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But...if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork.
Heating Element
Your dryer's heating element may be partially burned out. If it is, your dryer still heats, but at such a low temperature that it takes three or four times as long to dry the clothes. If the element is partially burned out, replace the heating element. You can check for an ohm reading but will need to refer to the service manual for proper reading. This sometimes on the tech sheet located somewhere on the dryer. Usually between 9-13 ohms.
Cycling thermostat
Although this isn't a common problem, one of the thermostats that controls the temperature in your dryer may break and cause the dryer to heat poorly. If so, you need to replace it. The thermostat is usually a small, round, black device mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate is mounted to the internal ductwork . This thermostat usually has four wires going to it. Check the 2 terminals that are opposite each other and are the closer together of the 2. These 2 terminals should have continuity. If not replace the thermostat.

Dryer wont stop buzzing


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Timer
The timer could be the problem. To check this, turn the timer to a timed cycle say 30 minutes or so then time it. If in 30 minutes the timer hasn't moved and the dryer is still on, the timer is bad and need replaced. If in 30 minutes the dryer is off, the heating element is your problem

Heating Element
This is the most likely cause for some dryers timer not advancing. Some dryers have two heating elements and if one goes out the timer will not advance if you use it on an automatic cycle but you will still feel heat inside the tub. replace the heating elements

Dryer heat fails intermittently


Probably an intermittent timer, not the heating element.

Dryer will spin but not dry , heat element is fine


Try replacing the high limit switches if the element is fine. The limit switches will not allow power to the heat strips if they are blown. They are the little silver buttons on the heat strip. There are usually two wires connected to them one coming from the controls and one from the heat strip itself

Whirpool amana dryer runs but no heat. on timed try timer doesnt move either.


HI, the timer motor is malfunctioning. this can affect the way you dryer heats in this case. I would advise to check the thermal fuse before replacing the timer. it is located on the blower house or, on the vent duct. in will show no continuity if defective. replace the timer if the thermal fuse is showing good continuity when measure with a meter.

Roper Electric Dryer Heats but drum won't spin


Yank the filter out the top. Remove the 2 screws in the filter housing. Use a putty knife to pop the top and then remove the screws holding the front on. NOTE: raise up on the front panel slightly so you won't damage the bottom clips. Get the front out yer way and remove the drum. Clean out the dryer and oil the rollers and idler. Use this handy ROUTING GUIDE to see how to put the belt back.
