Gas Dryer No Heat or Spin

Power From The House

Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? If you plug something else into the outlet, does it work? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

Main Control

The main control board may have failed. To check this check the two main feed leads entering the control refer to the tech sheet located on your dryer. The two leads are usually a separate plug of heavy wire. Check to see if power is entering you should have 120 volts. If not the problem is not the control. If you have power coming in and nothing is illuminated the main control will need to be replaced or the Timer will need replacing.


Dryers have a drive belt that turns the clothes drum. If the belt breaks, the drum stops rotating. Then you need to replace the belt, and often the idler pulley, because the pulley tends to wear out at the same time. Also check out videos for other style dryers. If you hear the motor running but it does not tumble it is most likely the belt. On some dryers when the belt breaks the idler pulley releases a micro safety switch, this in turn stop all functions of the dryer.
