A gas dryer uses 120V.
You must have a gas supply with a minimum of a 1/2" x 36" flex. This allows for your dryer to have enough gas to operate.
You must have a dryer vent that is not vinyl. The gas dryer gets hotter than the electric and will melt the vinyl vent.

Installed a new whirlpool gas dryer. no heat.


Well being "new" I'd not suspect many parts being defective other than the ignitor for the gas burner. You can view its operation behind the kick panel below the door. It should glow brightly when your dryer is calling for ignition. It may have been damaged if you had dropped it or very roughly handled your dryer wrestling it into position.
Otherwise i'd suspect that the gas line is still turned off, or a wire loose somewhere, or the heat setting in "air fluff"..
best of luck, and have fun,
ttfn

I have a Maytag DE50 dryer and the drum belt broke. Anyone have a diagram or instructions on how to put the new belt on?


Ignore gas references if electric dryer.
Unplug dryer and shut off gas. Disconnect gas line. Tip dryer onto its front. Remove back panel. Unscrew and remove inside back manifold. Place belt around drum and fit into pulley wheel(s) on motor shaft. (There may be a spring loaded tension arm on one of the wheels. Install the belt on it so that it pulls the belt tight around the drum and pulleys.) Check friction gasket (that the drum rotates on) on manifold and replace it if worn thin. Install manifold. Install back panel. Reconnect power and gas.

Kenmore Series 70 Gas Dryer not getting hot enough


The first thought I have is about the gas supply. If you had natural gas at the old house and now have propane or visa versa you need to change the orifices in the dryer as gas flow is different. Also, if the gas line some how got a kink in it when the dryer was being installed that too would restrict the flow of gas.

Dryer not heating


  • There are two house circuits/fuses in an electric dryer's circuit.
    If one of them is tripped/blown, the drum may turn, but the heater will not operate. Reset the circuit breaker or replace the house fuse.
  • Outlet wired incorrectly.
    Have a qualified electrician verify that the supply voltage is correct.
  • Gas supply valve to a gas dryer is not open.
    Open the gas supply valve. See Installation Instructions for details.
  • LP gas supply tank is empty or there has been a utility interruption of natural gas.
    Refill or replace the LP tank. Call your natural gas utility company.
  • Dryer does not have enough air supply to support the gas burner.
    The dryer needs space around it for proper ventilation. Do not stack or place laundry or throw rugs against the front or back of the dryer. See Installation Instructions for details about installing a dryer in a closet or alcove.
  • Incorrect cycle or temperature has been selected.
    If the Air Fluff cycle or temperature is selected, the dryer will tumble without heat. Each cycle ends with a Cool Down period during which the load tumbles without heat. Check the location of the indicator on the Cycle Selector knob.

Install 220 outlet for electric dryer or trade it for gas dryer?


Thanks for all the input!  We reached a compromise in hiring an electrician who was willing to come out today and install the connection for half what everyone else quoted...on a Sunday!  The laundry piling up in the corner was very persuasive in convincing us that your advice (in the end, we'd need a professional no matter which way we went) was prudent.  Thanks. jersey p
