Hi my dryer heats up sometimes but not other times. Today I let it run for 20 min with no clothes in it on what was supposed to be a 40 min high heat cycle. The first 10 min it got hot and I saw the blue flame come on through the front peep hole. But the last 10 min I didn't see the blue flame come on anymore and the dryer got cold. From what I have read, the thermal fuse does not seem to be the problem; otherwise the dryer would not heat up at all if the fuse was bad. I am thinking I need to replace the igniter but please let me know if I am wrong and its something else. Thanks.

My dryer does put out some heat on occasion but then shuts down and only cold air, this is using the timed cycle; the same thing happens with the automatic cycle, in that mode the dryer will not shut off, My first thought was to replace the igniter until I saw your video about the heat sensor too. The questions I am asking is which one do I replace if not both and does the auto mode only function {shut-off] with either of both of the others are working ,or does the timer have to be replaced also.

The igniter will light and the burner will come on for 5 minutes or so (strong flame) then goes out. The igniter will bring the burner on again and it will go out after a short while. If I open the door and let the dryer sit for about 5 or 10 minutes it will come back on for a while. If I don't let it rest long enough it goes out after maybe 30 seconds. The igniter will keep trying to bring the burner on. None of the components are hot. Also, if I have the dryer set on "timed" it's fine, if I have it set on Permanent Press, fluff or Heavy, the timer doesn't work. The parts men are telling us it's the coil but it's not hot. My son worked for Sears for a while, he thought it might be the sensors as sometimes they get dryer sheet residue on them and they don't work correctly. But, I can't find them. I don't often use dryer sheets, but let's face it, the dryer is 28 years old and there have been some dryer sheets run through it. My son has been too busy to get over here to look at the dryer.

When I turn on the dryer, the igniter doesn't even glow. I took it off and had it tested. It read 77 -78 on the meter. I put it back on the dryer and had no luck. Is the igniter bad or is it the thermo fuse? The dryer is only 3 years old. Thanks for any help.
