    Heat comes on when first starting. After thermostat shuts flame and cools, the igniter will glow, but no flame, and thus no heat. Try again later and same thing. Heats for a few minutes, and then flame shuts down and only igniter glows occasionally, but no flame/heat.

I smell a burning smell. when i open the dryer, there is smoke


Firt make sure the lint filter is clear and the air exhaust pipe is clear. Then check the drum gasket. Behind the drum, there is a heater.The drum rotates and the heated air is passed from the stationary heater to the drum via a gasket, usually stuck to the back of the drum andthis rubs against the stationary heater wall. This gasket can become frayed or broken and bits can be ignited by the heater. The gasket will need to be replaced if this is the problem.

Dryer won't spin. sounds like belt off tract


Hello there
here is some troubleshooting tips for you ok
The drum of the dryer is usually turned by a motor-and-belt assembly. There are two very clear signs that the belt is malfunctioning: You can easily spin the drum by hand when the dryer is off, or you hear a heavy thumping sound coming from the drum when the dryer is running. Here's how to test and replace the drum belt:

My whirl pool dryer has to be turned on bout 3 to 4 times


Ok, check the exhaust hose for obstructions. make sure the blower assembly is not clogged and, the hose is clear of any debris. the exhaust hose should blow out hot air forcefully. if the force of the air isn't blowing hard, it will not create a suitable drying environment for the element. this poor ventilation will also damage the heating element or burner Assembly.

Now, if there is sufficient air flow out of the exhaust hose, this will confirm control failure. replace the dryness sensor and control board in this case.

Here's a quick way to test for clogs. take the hose of the backside of the dryer then, start the cycle. if the drum sorts to become hot after a few minutes with the exhaust hose removed form the back of the unit, this will confirm a major block in the hose or blower assembly.

Why dosent my dryer get heat


There is a sensor for detecting airflow. If the dryer is unable to exhaust properly it will shut down the heat for safety reasons. Be sure the exhaust vent is not obstructed, and that there is good exhaust air flow. If there is insufficient exhaust, find and correct that condition.

Hope this helps.
