Question and Answers

Q:

My dryer stopped heating

A:

Having your dryer fail to heat can be very aggravating. I did some research and provided a link to a similar question and answer on our site. I hope this will shed a little more light on the issue until the Expert responds to your question in more detail within 24 to 48 hours.

The first item to check when a dryer is not heating is lint buildup in the vent or damper.

The second item to check when a dryer will not heat is the breaker. The dryer uses two fuses or breaker circuits. The drum may be turning but if one leg of the circuit is not working, there would be no heat. If you have a meter and are comfortable with voltage checks, you can use this Video .

If the circuit breaker is supplying correct voltage, then the next suspect is usually the thermal fuse. Again, if you are comfortable checking parts, the image below can help check this and other components. Other possible problems may be with the thermostat, high limit, cutoff, element, timer, or control board. If you wish to proceed yourself with repairs, please respond and designate if you have an electric or gas dryer. This model number covers both.

If you prefer to have a technician diagnose and make repairs, you can schedule a Sears technician here; Sears Home Services . Due to an issue we are having with images, I am e-mailing the electrical image to you.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Hello Barbara thank you for your information. I made sure that all of the vents and the lint screen was clear as well as resetting the breaker. The dryer heats up when I initially turn it on however, after a little while the drum continues to turn but the heat stops and I cant faintly smell gas.

Thank you for the reply. I apologize about the delay. This is most likely a gas coil or gas igniter failure. There is a small square plastic inspection cover located under the door that can be pried out for observing the glow bar igniter and burner operation. Pry the inspection cover off and start the dryer. Pull up a chair and monitor the glow bar operation for at least 10-15 minutes or until you will find the glow bar glowing red and then fading off without any burner ignition. If you find the glow bar igniter glowing red and fading off without burner ignition, replace both solenoid coils mounted on top of the gas valve assembly. The coil valves part number is # 279834. The directions below should help access and replace the coils. I attached a video that makes it easy. First, disconnect the power cord from the power source. Pull the lint filter out and remove the two hidden screws under it. Use a putty knife to slip in between the top and front panel to release the retainer clips holding the top down to the front panel. While pushing in on the clip raise that corner up, repeat on the other clip. Hinge the top up and let it rest against the wall. Remove the two (2) screws ) securing the front panel to the side panels. Disconnect the door switch wire harness plug. Pick the front panel up and off the two (2) hanger brackets. Set the front panel out of the way. You now have access to the coils mounted on top of the gas valve assembly. Remove the hold down bracket securing the coils, disconnect the wires and remove and replace the coils. Reverse the procedure to reassemble the dryer. If you do not feel comfortable replacing the coils, you can schedule a Sears technician at the link below. Let me know if further help is needed. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
