bad gas coils,if you have heat for say the first 10 minutes then no heat you have bad gas coils located on top of the gas valve,when the coils cool down you'll have heat again this is what happens when they start to fail,also when you change them out on the large coil there's a metal spacer that should be on the post when you remove the coil if it isn't on the post look inside the coil you have to pop it out and slide it back on post part number 279834 remove the two phillips screws,and remove the metal cover,remove the wires from the coil and install the new coils,easy job as long as you know what to look for lol hope this helps you out and good luck

there is likely an access spot on the back of the dryer that allows you to change the bulb without taking the entire dryer apart. the most you may need to do is remove the back panel of the dryer to access the light socket. it should either pop out with a clip or twist out 1/4 turn like the headlamps of most cars then you can replace it with a high temp appliance bulb as they last longer than standard bulbs

Hello Robert;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

The number that you have provided is your owners manual number. This is a generic manual which applies to several models.

Open the door on your dryer and you will see a label with the model number.

What are you trying to do? Replace the light? The light assembly?

This was the out vent of my dryer... If it gets this bad... open up the dryer housing and clean inside too. Also make sure the intake is free of lint.

sound slike something fell down there and is jamming the blower from turning. if the filter is ontop of the unit, remove the 2 phillips located under where the filter pulls out from. and the n remove all the screws on back panel youll see ( down the left side of unit ) the filter houosing, its secured by 3 5/16 screws toward the bottom portion of the housing, simply unscrerw and wiggle out, then remove the debris, and reassemble.
if the lint screen is located inside behind door, eitehr remove the bottom accesss panel or pop the top(with a screw driver approx 3 inches in from ither side of main top relaes the clips) the lid tips back revealing 2 screws holding front panel to the unit, after removing you will see the filter housing, still mounted by probalby 3-4 screws, remove the housing and retrieve the debris that has fallen down there

If your dryer has sensor strips like thisthemobilian_2491.jpg
Then up in the control panel their is a small board that works in conjunction with them sensors.
Yank that small board out and clean the contacts with alcohol and reinstall it securely. What it does is when the wet clothes rub against them sensors it discharges a capacitor on that board. As long as that capacitor gets discharged the timer motor will not advance because this little moisture sensing board is what powers up the timer motor. Buying a new timer won't solve the probo. I have had some success with simply removing that board and cleaning the contacts. Maybe you will also.

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 out this electric no heat tip...

Can you see it? A trick I often use is to find some very sticky tape securely attached with the sticky side out on the end of a stick, and try to touch the lid with it and hopefully it will stick to the tape. On the plus side it probably won't do any harm just to leave it if you can't get it out.
