Probably not igniting a flame in the heater. Could be due to a few things.. The igniter is bad or defective.. one of the thermal sense switches tripped and disabled gas flow for your heater to work.. Your gas is off to the system coming in.. Some of these gas driers use non resettable fuses that if tripped, disable the heating system from coming on.. they also use temperaure 'snap switches' that if an overtemp condition happende would disable your heater.. In some systems,.... these snap switches need to be manually reset by pushing a small reset button on them.. Hope this gives you some ideas on what the problem might be..

Ge gas dryer heats but doesnt dry


if the flame is lighting you have lint blocking the air flow either in the dryer or in the vent line,also if you have a flame for the first 10 to 20 minutes and then the flame doesn't light you have bad gas coils located on top of the gas valve,when the coils are bad they can work for the first 10 to 20 minutes until the coils get hot and then they fail and you'll see the ignitor glowing orange but no flame,bad gas coils.then when the coils cool down they can work again.hope this helps.you can try removing the vent line from the back of the dryer and see if the flame stays on,if lint is blocking the air from blowing out the flame won't stay lit long enough to dry the clothes.

Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes 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 differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check outthis electric no heat tip...

Dryer isnt heating up what could the issue be and how should i go about fixing it


Things to check, if these are all ok you will need to find a service company to come out and take a look unless you are really handy and have a good multimeter to do some testing. If so I would be happy to walk through some things to check.

- If it is an electric dryer check the fuses and or circuit breaker, one fuse or one leg of the breaker could be tripped and the motor still run.

- If it is a gas dryer make sure no one has accidentally turned the gas valve off to the dryer.

- Check the venting ( this would apply if you are getting some heat but not drying or taking too long to dry)

- If all these fail and you want more detailed troubleshooting send me the model number and your comfort level working with electricity and gas.

Thanks

Gas never ignites in any cycle in a 10yr old Kenmore dryer.


Chances are your igniter has gone bad. It must pull atleast 3.2 amps to open the gas valve and ignite the gas. A new igniter could probably purchased for 20 or 30 dollars.

Make sure the vent is clear and air movement is good through the rear vent.
Ten,
Check and or replace the flame sensor and the gas valve coils.

Kenmore dryer


this promblem is about always a vent promblem or not cleaning the drier filter if your using the plastic vent check if its mashed behind the drier you must have 4inch of vent all the way throuch if its mashed or folded over its cut down to 2inches if it hangs under your house then comes up to the outside vent housing it can fill with water if the outside hood door isnt oping that will do it too its in your vent some where what i tell cust to do is run 4inch pvc from out side hood up through floor then run short metel vent to pvg attach with clamp to confirm vent restriction take vent loose for one load and see if it dries in right amount of time
