Make sure that the gas cut-off valve is fully open and that the dryer has an adequate gas supply provided to it.

If the gas supply is okay, I recommend that you unplug the dryer and remove the bottom front service panel. The first image below shows how to remove this panel. Briefly run the dryer in a heated cycle and see if the igniter glows. Do not make contact with any components inside the dryer while it is running with the bottom front service panel removed. Unplug the dryer as soon as this brief test is completed. If the igniter is not glowing, I recommend that you check the thermal fuse. The wiring diagram for your dryer is shown in the third image below. The burner circuit is traced in red. The 4th image shows the location of the thermal fuse in this type of dryer. With the dryer still unplugged , you can access the thermal fuse and check it for continuity. Measure the resistance through this component with a volt/ohm meter. You should measure near zero ohms of resistance through this fuse if it is okay. If it measure Ol (open load or infinite resistance) then it is blown and will need to be replaced. NOTE: If the thermal fuse is blown, you will also need to check the exhaust vent system for a clog or restriction. An unresolved problem in the exhaust air flow could cause the fuse to blow again shortly after it is replaced.

You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website. NOTE: The model number of your dryer appears to be WGD8300SW0 instead of WGO8300SWO.

If the thermal fuse is okay, you could have an open component in the other parts of the heater circuit. You can check the other components using the wiring diagram as a guide.

If all of the components in the traced circuit are okay, you could have a bad thermistor (temperature sensor) or a failed heater relay on the control board.

The second image shows the theory of operation for the burner assembly. If the igniter is glowing and then cycling off as described in the second image, then you could have bad gas valve coils (kit part 279834).

These tips should help you fix this heating problem in your dryer. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

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 .
