My dryer stop heating, but it runs. Could it be my ignitor?

Deb for Model Number 101

ANSWER Hi Deb, you need to find a valid model number and you will be able to see a parts breakdown on our website. There are a few things that could cause a GAS dryer to stop heating including the ignitor, gas coils, flame sensor or even a thermal fuse. It's also a good idea to check your venting to make sure there is no blockage. A blocked or restricted vent can cause the dryer to run too hot and cause a thermostat or fuse to fail. Here is a link with things to look for when a dryer isn't working. Hope this helps! http://www.appliancepartspros.com/repair-help/dryer-repair-help.html#gas
