Question about Hotpoint Dryers
Hotpoint Heavy Duty Clothes Dryer with Automatic Dry Control. Gas
Model #DLL26508P----- Last few letters/numbers unreadable. No longer provides heat. Drum rotates properly. On/off knob works properly. Appears to be working but clothes do not dry. Cool air circulates, no heat.
The model number that comes up is DLL2650BPL you could have a bad igniter,gas coils or sensor but the only way to tell is by reading them out with a meter the igniter part number is WE4X444 gas coils are part 5303931775 and the sensor is part WE4X448 you can go here to see parts
if you have heat at the beginning and then no heat it will be the gas coils but one of the coils still could be bad and not work at all but check all parts with meter before you start ordering parts you don't want to change out good parts.

the gas coils have a problem. as the dryer heats p the coils on the gas valve are failing causing the dryer not to heat. replace the coils and you should have no problem

Before ripping into the dryer, with the dryer running, check the vent outside. There should be a rather strong air flow. I'll bet you have little or maybe no air flow. Check behind the dryer to make sure you don't have squished flex duct. If you have flex pipe, try running the dryer for a few minutes with the dryer pulled out into the room to stretch the vent out, and check outside airflow again. Try to eliminate all or as much of the flex stuff as you can, replacing it with aluminum dryer vent pipe. (tape joints with foil duct tape) Clean out remaining dryer vent. (there are special brushes you can buy to clean out vents, but they really only work on ridgid pipe.)

sounds like you have a cloged vent i normally get a few calls in the winter timer for this problem because the vent is clogged outside due to the snow remove your vent try the dryer to see if it dries if yes check your vent

Tips for a great answer:
Hello Chuck, thanks for your inquiry
Based off the information you have provided I have identified a few possibilities as to why your dryer is not heating could be the element, thermostat, or control panel. Each component controls the heat within your dryer and if one goes out it is possible that can cause the rest to not function properly. To accurately find out the reason to why your dryer is not heating I would recommend having a professional come out. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt
