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.


check out this electric no heat tip...

My kenmore 400 dryer timer doesnt move causing the electric switch go of every three minutes


Wow! Sounds like a couple different issues. First, make sure you have a free flow of air through your dryer duct work. The first place to check is where your dryer vent exits the home. With the dryer running, is there a good volume of air flowing through? No? Unplug dryer, ensure there are no kinks in the duct work, check for lint buildup in the duct work and on the back side (Inside of unit) of the lint trap. If you find no obstructions the blower motor may be bad or have a bad connection. The timer/selector switch could have a loose connection, gone bad or be dirty from lint buildup. If it's lint buildup around the switch you may be able to clean it with an old narrow 2" paint brush and some electrical contact cleaner. Make sure the appliance is unplugged when working inside the unit! Also, if you use electrical contact cleaner make sure you give it ample time to evaporate before testing dryer. If none of this helps, time to get on the phone. Good luck! :)

Dryer control doesn't move on less dry more dry setting and will not shut off when clothes are dry.


If clothes are hot then try dryer on timed dry. If timer does not move then timer is most likely bad . Replace. If timer moves on timed dry it is not getting hot enough to click the cycling thermostat.(If clothes are overly hot above 160 then the cycling therm. is stuck Replace.

Whrilpool washer/dryer stack the dryer doesn't get hot


You will find that the drier wont get hot because the timer is not forwarding onto the heating part of the cycle. Possibly if you click one click at a time, you will possibly get to the heating part of the cycle but its not safe as it wont go any further. Install a new timer and you will be happier I'm sure.

I have a kenmore dryer model #110-74212200 and it does not get hot?


need to check vent system. restricted air flow
will reduce the amount of heat unit will give in result dry time will be extended. if no heat is detected then the thermal fuse needs to be replaced. thermal fuse blows when there is not enough air flow over heating element. meaning there is a restriction in the venting system.

My maytag electric dryer is not getting hot.


It sounds like the element shorted out and caused more damage to the unit. Remove and check the heating elment, thermal fuse (located near element), and timer. The timer will be hard to test if you don't have a meter. I would suggest that you check the element first. This is probably your main problem.

Dryer turns on, gets hot, but knob does not move with timer.


could be your operating thermostat on your heater or your timer if it runs on timed dry but not auto dry then it is a thermostat issue if it just does not run at all then it is a timer issue also make sure your vent is clear check by removing vent hose from back of unit and running a load if it works properly clean your vent.

Dryer doesn't get hot or turn off.


yes very possible timer but my guess on the times i seen the problem would be the heating element are the thermo fuse on the elemnt canister when the heater does not come on the timer will not move ck the heater and the fuses on the heater canister it will fix your problem
