Gas dryer does not heat


A gas dryer is nothing to mess with if it does not fire up the flame. Pull the lower kick plate off the front of the dryer, unplug the unit and clean out dust/lint build up. Vacuum as needed.
Then after checking that the gas valve that is connected to the end of the gas line that connects from the dryer to the wall, I recommend you get a professional.
Common failures are the pilot / ignition system / thermocouple.
No way to be more specific unless you provide the brand and model number of your dryer.

Gas Dryer. Heat for only one burn cycle.


Try vacuuming out the intake and exhaust of the burner to remove any lint or other debris. If no help, the main burner may need to be replaced.

My kenmore dryer model 86873100 will not heat


gas or electric? if it runs, check the heating element for a break. make sure the dryer venting is cleaned or the safety on the heater element will shut off the heat to prevent a fire. you may also need a thermal cut out kit which is mounted on the heater assembly.

Dryer will not relite after initial warm up

This site has 6 variations of LGR5635L, user guides, setup instructions, warranty guides and parts manuals. Also, I think there should be a wiring diagram on the inside of rear cover. Hope this hekps.

Initial heat cycle will ignite gas burner but will not re-ignite to maintain heat.


MAKE SURE YOU HAVE GOOD VENTILATION TO OUTSIDE. CHECK THE COILS IN THE GAS VALVES. CHECK CONTINUITY ON BOTH COILS. SHOULD READ 1.3 - 1.9 OHMS. ON THE COIL WITH THREE TERMINAL, MEASURE BETWEEN MIDDLE TERMINAL AND OUTSIDE TERMINALS

Have initial flame startup, but after it cycles off first time, flame does not come back on. My clothes aren't getting dry.


Firstly, make sure your vent is unobstructed from the dryer to the outside vent hood.
Check the vent hood itself to make sure it has not been crushed. Venting should be cleaned/inspected twice a year and kept to a minimum length without 90 degree elbows or pinched tubing.

The most common failure are the gas valve coils, but read on from an excerpt at; www.repairclinic.com

If your dryer doesn't heat, check these:

Igniter
Gas valve coils
Thermal fuse
Igniter Modern gas dryers use an electric igniter to ignite the gas from the gas valve. When it's working properly, the igniter glows bright orange. When it burns out, the dryer tumbles but there's no heat because the gas can't ignite. When the igniter burns out, you need to replace it. If the igniter is held by a tension bracket, you very well may need to replace the bracket too.

The igniter is inside the dryer housing, near the bottom front, usually in a cone-shaped metal tube (the force cone). It's about 2 inches long. It's mounted to the far end of the burner tube, and it has two wires attached to it--or to the tension bracket, if there is one.

Gas valve coils Watch the igniter. Does it glow bright orange, then shut off without igniting the gas? (When the gas ignites there's a large blue flame.) If so, there may be defective coils on the gas valve. Mounted on the top of modern gas valves, there are black electrical coils. The coils, when energized, open the gas valve. If one or more of the coils are defective, the valve doesn't open and the gas cannot ignite. Because it's often difficult to properly test the coils, it's usually best to replace both (all) of them at the same time.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

Kenmore gas dryer model #76812690 will not heat.


does the dryer heat initially when you first turn on the dryer Or no heat at all?

the first thing i would check is tthe thermal fuse thats located on the back of the unit. test it with a multimeter and see if it has continuity, if it doesnt then replace that and your operating thermostat. the check to be sure you venting to the outside of your house is not clogged

Dryer starts and the gas poilt light and the gas value opens and stays open for 15 seconds then shuts off.


Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Below is a link to common solutions that will help you with parts and diagnostic procedures that are specifically tuned to your manufacturers data plate information.
It provides exploded view imagery, belt routing diagrams, parts imagery and function, parts ordering and shipping information, error code details, just about anything you need to get your appliance up and running again. Once you access the site you will be able to navigate numerous pages of information on your product. You will need to enter your model number to access your product information.

Tip: Always provide the complete information provided on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the user’s manual. This will help you acquire a more accurate and expeditious response to your complaint. I will post the most common solutions to your complaint. For more specific information please refer to the tip and/or link provided. Here are some things to look for:

Restricted venting

Inspect your venting, if it is plugged it will cause the hi-limit safety switch to cycle off to prevent a fire.
