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.

I want to know how hot my dryer gets. I do not have temp. controls on my model


Good Morning Tabitha,

I see that you are looking to see how hot your Frigidaire dryer, model# FER311FS, actually gets, due to you not having temperature controls on your particular model. Being that you have just the timed dry cycle, it provides up to 100 minutes of drying time at high heat for regular and permanent press items. When drying permanent press items, turn the cycle selector to 40-50 minutes. This is the average time needed to dry most loads of permanent press items. The load tumbles without heat during the last 10 minutes of the Timed Dry cycle. Use this setting to refresh clothing, pillows or blankets or to dust draperies. Heat-sensitive items such as plastics, foam rubber or similarly textured rubber-like materials or items containing feathers or down should be dried only with this setting. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

GE Dryer DDE7200SBLWW -- dryer will dry on high heat for non permanent press clothes, but when you set timer and selector to Permanent Press it will not heat. Is this a thermostat issue or is the timer...


This dryer has 2 different cycle thermostats One is for 135f and the other is for 125 f. Maybe the 125f tstat is faulty? I would check that before ordering a timer. A good cleaning might do it also. Clogged dryer will overheat you know.

The clothes will dry if you run the dryer for about 2 hours


Most common problem is clogged exhaust hoses and or the heating element is on its "last legs." you can also try a different setting i.e. Permanent Press see if there is any change. But I think it is a clogged hose, and that is the cheapest thing to check first.

Is your dryer gas or electric? I think based on your model number, it possibly looks like your dryer is gas. Regardless, you need to look at what the service mode troubleshooter tells you. To access it:

1. Press the POWER key to turn the dryer on.
2. Press HELP. The main help screen is displayed.
3. Press and hold MY CYCLES and BACK simultaneously for 3 seconds. Press EXIT to return to the HOME screen.

Let me know what it tells you and I can help you further from there.

My dryer was working fine last night, then today, no heat. The vent is cleaned, nothing in there...heating element?


Heating element maybe not likely.

Probably thermal switch overheat protection tripped.

Try putting in lower heat mode (touch up or permanent press) see if you get heat.

Some thermal switches can be reset most have to be replaced. $20.00 to $45.00 Plus labor $??.?? to $???.??

Hope this helped. need more help MSG Back. Please rate. Good Luck!

Blower doesn't blow and no heat


With these GE Harmony Profiles, the blower is the problem in same situations about 95% of the time.

First use the dryers service mode and see what trouble code you are receiving.

It's called "Field Service Mode"
1. Press the POWER key to turn the dryer on.
2. Press HELP. The main help screen is displayed.
3. Press and hold MY CYCLES and BACK simultaneously for 3 seconds. Press EXIT to return to the HOME screen.

There's a 95% chance that it is your blower and your dryer should confirm that.

I just recently replaced the blower in my GE Profile Harmony as well. While I had my dryer apart, I also cleaned the heck out of it. Excellent opportunity to take your vaccum cleaner and get all of those dust bunnies out!

I purchased the blower from www.applicancepartpros.com for about $146 S&H included.


Part No. AP3791484 Item: Motor asm-blower Price $133.05 Plus Shipping.
