Karenl46 -- Flame sensor has to "see" proper flame in order for gas burner to stay on. Safety solenoid engages (shuts off gas) when flame light not detected. Check window on sensor (1:30 CW position) on burner tube. If you still have problem after cleaning it, then refer to URL below. -- SWT

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...

Hi, i have an amana dryer, model LG8409w2. it is running but has no heat. is this a gas dryer? and how do i get into it to see what's wrong. thanks


Hi, to tell if it is gas or elect, just pull it out some and look behind it. A gas dryer will have a galvanized pipe with a gas flex line and shut off valve going to it. If electrical, it will have a large diameter cord plugged into a large round plug much different then a regular receptacle. It sounds as though it is a electric dryer as it is running. A gas dryer will have a regular plug on it to. If no heat, it could be a number of things that are wrong. The heat strips are located at the rear of the dryer behind the panel. You will need to unplug it and pull it out to do this. Give yourself lots of room with a strong light to work with. The heating element has several coils of wire lined up in a vertical position. Look them over very good for a break in any part of these coils, look very carefully to find one. If you do, you will need a new one. Take the model, serial, and name to a appliance parts house to get one. If by chance it is gas, make sure there is gas to the unit and the valve is open. Shut off the valve and take loose the line. Crack open the vale a little to hear and smell the gas. There is not much you can check on a gas dryer but this, that's about it. It may be the ignitior, a thermostat ect. I am sure you have a electric dryer, so check the element and clean all of the lint from the unit. Get back to me on this, so we can go further if needed.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7

Dryer is not heating up to dry clothes


The spark ignitor maybe at fault. Listen for the clicking noise upon starting it up the first 30 seconds it runs. If not heard it is in need of a replacement

Amana dryer not advancing on auto


Make sure the vent from the dryer to the outside is clean.
Reduced air flow can cause your symptom.

You can remove the vent hose from the dryer and operate the dryer in the automatic cycle.'
If the timer advances you know the vent needs cleaning.
Clean the lint filter housing also.
A flashlight helps to see all the way down the housing.
