Run the dryer for 2-5 minutes. Check to see if it has heat inside. If not, you have an internal problem.
If heat is generated, check your dryer lint trap. It must be clean before every dry cycle to dry properly and efficently. If the trap is clean and heat is generated, check the tubes behind the dryer for disposing of the lint.

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.

The dryer is on but very little heat is generated. The lint trap is clear and the botton is vacuumed.

  1. Check for proper air flow
  2. Test the safety fuse
  3. Test the thermostats
  4. Test the centrifugal switch
  5. Test the timer motor
  6. Test the heating element.
Thank you.

My dryer does not not produce enough heat when in operation. It seems like it is just running and generating very low heat. Please help.


Really sounds like an element is burnt out or a safety has malfuctioned. Possible loss of power so check plug, recept., and breaker. Look for burnt terminals and reset breaker even if it does not look tripped. Dryer usually have 2 elements. One for low heat and both for hi heat. May want to check this out. Please keep in mind that some repairs can cost more than buying a new dryer. I got one at Lowes for about $200 and it works great. I don't think you can get a repair guy out and to the repairs for that amount. Just depends on how many whistles, buzzers, and bells you want on your machine.

Good Luck.

Dryer runs but will not generate any heat...


If not generating any heat then element is probably burned out- close visual inspection will general reveal break in element coils

If some heat then probably on of the thermostats gone bad. Will power off test for continuity with meter--if no reading replace

Good luck

Gas dryer/ whirlpool


well your generating heat which is a good sign, either there is a blockage in your venting() most likely source of issue!) but you say ou replaced, i would then look to replacing the valve coils, 279834, about 20 bucks, easy to replace... its possible that they open the valve upon start up allowing heat, but after being on 20-30 min they overheat and no longer open not allowing heat to generate..
