Gas Dryer Not Heating ? A gas dryer has many parts that can be defective and prevent the gas dryer from overheating.

We will talk about each part and what it does.whirlpool gas dryer not heating
Gas dryer is not heating
Remember that when parts are replaced or parts are replaced in your gas dryer, always make sure the dryer is unplugged and there is no possibility of gas leaking from the gas valve closing.
1 – Defective gas valve solenoid coil
These open the gas valve and flow the gas into the burner.
Check if the fire is glowing and stops but there is no flame.
If there is no flame, the gas valve solenoid coils are incorrect and need to be replaced.
2 – Blown thermal fuse (on blower housing or on burner assembly)
The thermal fuse is most likely and if the thermal fuse blows, it cuts off the power in the burner.
This is most likely a clogged venting system and cannot escape heat.
Remove the thermal fuse and test it for continuity using a multimeter.
If there is continuity in the thermal fuse, then this shows you that the problem is elsewhere.
If there is no continuity of the thermal fuse, it needs to be removed and replaced.
Clean the venting system for your gas dryer with a stray type vacuum cleaner and take out all the lint.
3 – Defective Igniter
Burns gas in burners to create flame.
If the incendiary fails the gas will not ignite and the gas dryer will not heat up.
Remove the igniter and test it for continuity using a multi-meter.
If there is a continuity in the igniter, it shows you that the problem is elsewhere.
If there is no continuity in the igniter, it needs to be removed and replaced.
4 – Gas supply to the dryer
Ensure that the gas supply line is OPEN and is supplying gas to your gas dryer.
Check to ensure that the gas supply line is securely connected to the wall and to the dryer.
If you find that the gas supply line is damaged, remove and replace it.
5 – Defective Flame Sensor
This component detects the heat that is emitted from the flame.
If the flame sensor is faulty, the dryer will not heat.
Remove the flame sensor and test it for continuity using a multi-meter.
If there is a continuum in the flame sensor, then this shows you that the problem is elsewhere.
If there is no continuity in the flame sensor, it needs to be removed and replaced.
6 – Defective high limit or cycling thermostat (located on burner assembly)
The high limit thermostat controls the dryer temp and turns off the burner if the dryer is overheated.
The cycling thermostat turns the burner on and off to control air temperature.
If any of these thermostats are faulty, the burner will not work.
Remove the thermoset and test for continuity using a multi-meter.
If there is continuity in the thermos, then this shows you that the problem is elsewhere.
If there is no continuation of the thermostat, one or both need to be removed and replaced.
7 – Defective or loose wires in the gas dryer
Closed gas valves or improperly connected gas lines mean that no gas can be found to the dryer.
If the wiring going to any part of the top is loose, not attached, or damaged, it will not heat the gas dryer.
Be sure to check the gas dryer and check all wiring as sometimes it is just a simple wiring issue that is not heating the dryer.
