The sock ended up down below at the bottom where the vent fan blows, I would remove the back of the machine,, remove the vent housing inside, and you'll see the fan which runs off the back of the motor,, ( and probably the sock) and remove it , and any other debris thats collected there, Its a fairly simple task

Duet gas gas dryer has no heat


does the flame go on and then shut down if so make sure vent hose is clear all the way through if ok then you need to locate the blower wheel and make sure there isnt a sock jambed in it and its tight on the shaft not spinning loose they crack and are servicable.

A sock was accidentally sucked into the lint filter area, and now the dryer is making a loud noise.


Try to disconnect the filter and throw the sock away it is probably more holes than sock by now.
Goodluck

I ran the dryer without the lint filter in it and now it is noisy


First of all, You have a serious safety issue. Your dryer may catch fire. DO NOT USE YOUR DRYER.

Something went into the mechanism (yes, may be another sock), and a lot of lint went inside the dryer. The dryer needs to be cleaned by a technician. Using the dryer on its condition may cause a fire. Don't get your house burned down just to save some money doing it by yourself.

I took lint filter out to clean it and forgot to put it back in, I started gas dryer and it stopped, I believe there is a sock stuck in there somewhere. Does the front come off and what do I need to take...


Hello Kims987K,
You may want to check circuit breakers in your Breaker Panel to see if the one for your Dryer is tripped, and reset it if it is. Even though you have a Gas Dryer the Drum still operates on electricity, so without it the Dryer wouldn't function at all.
I don't think that the sock is stopping your Dryer, as the lint filter just filters lint from your Dryer's exhaust. So, even with the lint filter out a sock couldn't fit through the small holes in the drum that ventilate it (that's how the lint gets to the filter). I guess there could be a switch that detects whether the filter is in the machine and cut it off though, so you may try to re seat the lint filter (replace the lint screen/filter making sure it's in all the way), and try to start it again. If you look inside the Drum and see any way that a sock or anything else could get out other than through the door opening? That would be a problem.
If the filter was missing for several loads of laundry? Then you could have a restriction in the exhaust causing a thermal overload circuit to cut it off too (prevents the Dryer from catching fire). Does the light come on in the Dryer when you open the door?
From the information you posted, all I got is that it's a Gas Dryer that won't run and you appear to be missing a sock, so more detailed information will probably help in finding your solution.
I'll check back, and Good Luck finding that sock.
