A:

Yes, appliances can wear over time. The amount of time an appliance will last, depends on the dryer usage. There is a possibility that the gas valve may need to be replaced, however, the ignitor and thermal fuse are two commonly replaced parts when a gas dryer does not heat. You will want to check continuity of these parts to determine which will need to be replaced.

If you are not comfortable performing this type of check, I would recommend scheduling an appointment for repair. You are more than welcome to contact our Sears Home Services Department at 1-800-424-2047 to schedule an appointment.

If you have any other questions, please resubmit a question with additional details.

Q:

Why is my dryer not heating?

A:

In order to determine the problem with your dryer not heating, several checks will need to be made with a multimeter. Voltage comes from the timer & has to pass through all the thermals, thermostats & flame sensor to get to the igniter. The netural side comes from the door switch through the motor switch to the other side of the igniter. Here is an image of the wiring diagram showing the voltage path to the igniter/burner assembly. If you do find a bad thermal fuse or thermal cutout, be sure to check your exhaust venting for restrictions.
