There is air in the gas line. If you are able, you can loosen the gas line behind the dryer (dryer off) and let the air bleed out of the line for 10 seconds or so. Tighten the gas line back up after you bleed the air out, use a little bit of soapy water to check for leaks where you tightened it, and then try your dryer again. You may have to do this a couple of times.

Many times, if the dryer tries to light enough times, it will eventually bleed the air out on its own. It may take several times trying though. Hope this helps

The drier is not getting hot


If it's electric and you do not have the knowledge to be working with 220 vac power I would suggest you call a repair person to come and look at it. It can be a tripped breaker, check you breaker box and shut off the drier breaker and than turn it back on making sure both sides lock on. Other than that, you can have a bad heater element or a bad timer. The most common would be a bad heating element. The element is normally found either behind the drum or down below the drum area and can be accessed by removing the lower front panel. Gain access to the element or open the dryer door and start the dryer by holding down the door switch and push the start button. If it is behind the drum you should see it glowing by looking inside the drum as it's running. The same is true for the element that is underneath the drum...remove the panel and start the dryer, you should see a glow from the element box. If you do not see a glow, unplug the dryer and check the element for a burned connection or break in the element wire. If you have a gas dryer, check that the supply is on, check that the dryer is plugged in and if so equipped check that the pilot light is lit. If the dryer has electronic ignition, you should hear a clicking noise when you first start it up. No noise, no ignition! If the pilot light is out follow your instruction book and relight the pilot or call your gas company for help!

If you mean that it is not heating and stays cool, most likely the pilot sensing thermocouple needs replacing (if you have a gas drier with a pilot light) or the electronic ignition contacts need replacing (if you have a gas drier with electronic ignition). Not sure about an electric drier, but probably the heating element needs replacing, or the thermocouple sensor (most likely). None of these are very expensive.

Will not light


Have you removed the burners covers and top to see if the PILOT LIGHTS may have blown out? Hold a stick match or fireplace match (long stick) down in the area of the circular burner after turning on some gas. The burner should light and the pilot light should stay on as well. You local gas company provides service for this type of problem. Call them and have a gas company representative make a home call (free service) in most areas.

Gas dryer not heating up


it probably has a igniter, not a pilot light that lil hole is a check sight hole, close the door and set the drier to start , within a few seconds you should see a glow plug light up, if not,, check the main fuse in the back of the machine,, this is normally caused by a lack of flow for the drier vent and over heating

Is gas turned on with pilot light or electronic?


No pilot. Unplug the power to the unit and it cannot run/ignite. There is a shutoff on the valve behind the front panel if you want to turn off the gas supply without moving the dryer.

I have a kenmore gas dryer 110.74832400 doesnt heat


You stated you checked all lints roblems. Just to make sure. Did you remove the lint catcher completely on the inside? If not take that off and clead the lint out of the inside of the duct. Also lint can build up inside the lint duct on the rear of the drier and in the duct going outside of your home.
