I'm assuming your dryer is still running, correct? That is, the drum spins, but the dryer doesn't heat? If this is the case, the following link gives you some great advice on how to troubleshoot these symptoms:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r630242-dryer_runs_but_not_heat

Pay particular attention to the portion of the write up where it discusses proper ventilation. In many cases, what appears to be a major problem, could be a need for a good cleaning. A dryer left in a condition where it is starved for air, will cause the heating circuits will actually over-heat. Over an extended period, the heating circuits will eventually fail. The most common failed item is the thermal cut-out. It is designed to trip in an overheat condition. Read through the write-up thoroughly and let me know what you discover. Hopefully, you will not require any replacement parts. If you do, post back with your COMPLETE model number and I can assist you with identifying part numbers. I hope you find this information helpful.

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...

Slow to dry


Hi!!

Have you cleaned the filter and the exhaust duct??

Lint plugs therm up, the heat sensor shuts off heating element thinking it is hot enough. Result: Clothes not getting dry.

Unplug duct and clean it, also clean the exahust passage of dryer. (where duct hooks to dryer)

Click below if this was helpful, Good luck.

Whirlpool mod # WGD5300SQ0 gas dryer gets hot but does not stay hot Is it a thermostat or radiant sensor or something else


by all means when dealing with natural gas consult only trained professionals....as natural gas does not have an odor..the odor that you smell is an actually additive that has been place for just this reason.

Dryer works but no hot air


Hello, if it's an electric dryer and you have absolutely no hot air, then it's either the heating element or the thermal cut-off, most likely.

The thermal cut-off is the fuse on the element's housing.

Check both for continuity. Good luck :)
Please feel free to keep emailing me if you'd like.

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..

Dryer doesn't get hot or turn off.


yes very possible timer but my guess on the times i seen the problem would be the heating element are the thermo fuse on the elemnt canister when the heater does not come on the timer will not move ck the heater and the fuses on the heater canister it will fix your problem
