Could be any number of things .. igniter ( which lights the fire that dries your clothes) over-temp switches ( that disable the gas valve from opening and won't let a fire get started..) Defective gas valve.. not opening to let gas in for the fire that dries our clothes..
Those are the main components in your system and not much more I can provide to you unless I had specific details on what you've checked etc.. maybe this link will help identify the parts associated with your dryer... and if your so inclined..can do your own diagnostics... http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php Hope that helps...

Maytag Dryer not producing heat


Might be a fuse due to a clogged lint buildup or possibly a bad blower wheel itself. On a gas dryer the fuse only kills the gas assembly. The motor will still work and the dryer will still operate with a blown fuse. If it heats a little bit and quits it could very well be the solenoids.

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 your heating element and thermal cutoff. Check the breaker on your house make sure both breaker to the dryer is on. Check your cord that connects to the back of dryer. If every thing is good then you will need a service tech.
