Hi Marie,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

Make sure that the gas shut-off valve is fully open and that the dryer has an adequate gas supply provided to it (simple step that should not be overlooked).

The wiring diagram for your dryer with the heating circuit traced in red is shown in the first image below. The second image provides an explanation of the gas valve assembly operation. If the igniter is not glowing, then the most likely failure is a blown thermal fuse. I recommend that you unplug the dryer, shut off the gas supply and remove the back panel. The third image shows the locations of components in the back of the dryer. You can check the thermal fuse for continuity with a volt/ohm meter. (If you don't have a volt/ohm meter, you can buy one at your local Sears or hardware store for less than $20.) Remove one wire from the thermal fuse and measure the resistance through this component. You should measure near zero ohms of resistance (continuity). If the fuse is "open" (measures Ol -- open load or infinite resistance) then it is blown and will need to be replaced. If the thermal fuse is blown, you will also need to check the exhaust vent duct system for a clog or restriction. An unresolved problem with exhaust air flow can cause the fuse to blow shortly after it is replaced. You can verify that this is the only failure that is preventing the dryer from heating by taping the blue wires that go to the thermal fuse together with electrical tape to "bypass" the fuse. Reassemble the dryer, plug it in and turn on the gas supply. If the dryer heats with this fuse bypassed then replacing the fuse will fix your dryer problem. NOTE: Do not continue to run the dryer with this fuse bypassed. It is an important safety component that must be replaced to safely run the dryer.

If the thermal fuse is okay, you can check the operating thermostat, high limit thermostat and the thermal cut-off fuse in the same manner as above. The thermal cut-off fuse is on the heater box above the high limit thermostat (it is not shown in the image below). NOTE: IF the thermal cut-off fuse is blown then this component and the high limit thermostat should both be replaced at the same time since the high limit thermostat should have opened to prevent the thermal cut-off fuse from blowing.

If all of these components are okay, you could have a failed radiant sensor (flame sensor), or a wiring failure in the heating circuit. A failed timer contact (timer switch 2) could also prevent the dryer from heating.

These tips should help you diagnose and repair the heating problem in your dryer.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Hi Troy,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

The first thing I recommend is measuring the exhaust temperatures for several minutes. Make sure your laundry area is well ventilated. Pull the vent hose off the back of the dryer and measure the temperature with a cooking thermometer. The exhaust temperature coming from the vent directly behind the dryer should be around 150 to 160 degrees for most dryers. If your temperature is not even getting close to that, you could have a thermostat or burner problem.

If you do not have a cooking thermometer you may try drying a medium load on high heat with the dryer venting into the room to see if drying performance improves. If it does, you will know that you have a restriction in the ducting to the outside of the home that is causing your long dry times. NOTE: Reconnect the dryer to vent to the outside of the home immediately following this temporary test.

If you are using the automatic drying cycle, you could have a shorted moisture sensor.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Landell, Thanks for your advice with my dryer. I had already checked my outside vent by looking at it from a 15 ft. distance & seeing steam come out of it, prior to inquiring. So I took off the vent hose & measured the temp. like you suggested, it went up to 150 degrees. Then I went back outside and took a closer look at the vent. Had I done this to begin with I could of had the problem resolved. I went to the vent & pulled off the screen & found 1/4 inch of lint buildup across the whole screen. After I cleaned it off the dryer dries fine. However, the info. you gave me will still be helpful later on I'm sure. Thanks again & Joseph I Thank you too. Have a Merry Christmas.
