All dryers take approx.60-75 minutes for a Large load to completely dry.If you have checked your vent hose and made sure there is FULL AIR BLOWING out it than you would then check for either a bad high limit or mixture thermostat or faulty Split Coils.If you have zero heat you go to Thermal Fuse & Igniter. Please Rate This !!

What is the heat selector knob?

This allows you to adjust the temperature to match what you are drying. Some fabrics and clothes require low heat or you may only be drying a small amount of clothes and don't need much heat. You also may not want high heat to avoid shrinkage of some clothes.

I how do I replace the ignitor? I had a friend find the problem and now I need to install the ignitor and reassemble the dryer.


There are two common styles of igniters, glow igniters and spark igniters. The igniter ignites the gas either by heating up and glowing, or by sparking. If the igniter fails, the dryer will not heat.

Please check this links to get the instruction for the replacement and the installation though you did not mention which is the brand of the dryer.

My two year old dryer doesn't heat up Anyone know why? Or how to fix it?

I noticed you said it would not heat up and you made no mention it would not run and I assume you paid the gas bill so I would first check for air restrictions in and around the dryer. I would clear the restrictions and then check the duct fuse.a24ab96.jpg

My Kenmore dryer (C60922) runs but has no heat. We've checked the breaker and it is fine. Any ideas on how to fix? Can we fix ourselves?

The following link explains how to troubleshoot a dryer no heat problem:

First, begin by unplugging the dryer and verifying the voltage at the wall receptacle. You should read 220-240VAC across the two Hot terminals (left and right slots). If the voltage is incorrect, check to make sure you don't have a breaker tripped. Some homes use 2 separate 120VAC breakers to provide power to the receptacle vice using one 240VAC breaker.

If the voltage IS correct, leave the dryer unplugged and remove the cover plate on the terminal block in the back of the dryer (this is where the power cord is installed). Plug the dryer back in and take a voltage reading across the two hot (RED and BLACK) wires at the terminal block. You should read 220-240VAC. If the voltage is good, you have an internal heating problem. If the voltage is bad at the terminal block, but good at the receptacle, you have a bad power cord.

The reason a dryer will still run if the input voltage is incorrect, is because the drive motor only uses a portion of the 220 service. The motor runs off 110-120VAC, while the heating circuits require 220-240VAC. So, if you are missing 1/2 your input voltage due to a tripped breaker or bad power cord, your dryer will exhibit these symptoms.

If you determine the problem to be internal, the heating circuits will either be located in the rear of the washer on the right hand, or under the dryer drum on the right hand side. I would need a model number from you to be more accurate. All Kenmore dryers are not contructed the same. The Heating Element is located inside the heater box. The Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) will be located on the outside of the heater box on the end opposite the heating element terminals. The Hi-Limit Thermostat will be located adjacent to the heating element terminals. If either the TCO or Hi-Limit Thermostat are determined to be bad, replace both components at the same time. That is why these components are commonly sold as a set. Failure to do so may result in premature failure of any parts you replace. All these parts can be found at,,, or

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

NOTE: The model number you posted, I believe is a Canadian model number. If you reside in Canada, verify if these websites will ship to you.

Problems with Maytag PYE4558A not heating properly

Call the dealer, tell them to come and fix the dryer or take it back to their store, whichever they want. If they give you a hassle tell them you are going to call the Better Business Bureau and the State Attorney General.

Kenmore dryer

I apologize for taking so long getting back to you on this. Have you verified everything? The following link provides some helpful information on how to troubleshoot common ELECTRIC dryer problems:

The component you mention, sounds like an operating thermostat, but I'm not sure. From the readings you provided, it sounds like it may be good. That's why I suggested the link in order for you to double check all your readings and symptoms. I'm not trying to undermine you technical abilities, but you may have overlooked something.

A model number would be a great help in understanding how your dryer is configured. You also never mentioned if this was an electric or gas dryer. I'm assuming we're talking about an electric dryer.

If this is a GAS dryer, the common source of a no heat problem is a bad igniter or gas safety valve coils. Please let me know which dryer type you have. I hope all this information helps you.

PS I failed to mention (I think) in the link I provided that there is also a centrifugal switch on the drive motor that (if faulty) will not enable the heating circuits. Double check everything else before looking into this option.

My kenmore electric dryer wont heat mondel 110.86880100

I know you cleaned the lint filter so I won't even mention it:)

Is it possible that your vent hose runs along the floor (perhaps behind the dryer, or maybe even under a raised floor beneath your dryer - as mine used to) before going up and out to the outside vent? If so it could be that water has seeped in through the vent opening from outside and become trapped in the hose and is acting like a drain trap and blocking moist air from escaping which is causing the clothes not to dry.

This is what happened to mine once anyway. A cracked vent flap was all it took for the water to build up over time. Unfortunately mine ran under the floor and I had to actually tear up my floor in order to remove the water without having it flow all over my house. Fixed the drying problem though (and a new vent flap insured that it didn't happen again).
