Dryer runs, won't heat

I have had a technician in and he said he's tested everything he could test. All checked out okay. He suggested changing the gas coils which he did, still no heat.

Any suggestions about where to go with this?

Thermal Fuse

The thermal fuse is a safety device designed to protect the dryer from overheating. The fuse is located on the blower housing or at the dryer’s heat source such as the heating element on electric dryers or at the burner on gas models. The fuse should be closed for continuity meaning it has a continuous electrical path through it when good. If overheated the fuse will have no continuity meaning the electrical path is broken and the fuse has blown out. A multimeter can be used to test it for continuity. Be aware that a blown thermal fuse is an indication of a restricted exhaust vent from the dryer to the outside. Always check the dryer venting when replacing a blown thermal fuse.

I'm having the same problem of no heat. Replaced thermal fuse and heating element, still no heat.

Where did you find this tech? The gas coil part costs around $8.00

Cause 2

Gas Valve Solenoid

Gas dryers have two or more gas valve solenoid coils. The gas valve solenoids open the gas valve ports to allow gas to flow into the burner assembly. If a gas valve solenoid fails, the dryer won’t heat. To determine if one or more of the gas valve solenoids has failed, check the igniter. If the igniter glows and goes out but does not ignite the gas, the gas valve solenoid is defective. If one or more of the gas valve coils are defective, we recommend that you replace them as a set.

Cause 3

Igniter

The igniter uses heat to ignite the gas in the burner assembly. If the igniter is not working, the gas will not ignite, preventing the dryer from heating. To determine if the igniter has burned out, use a multimeter to test the igniter for continuity. If the igniter does not have continuity, replace it.

My Dyer is not heating. Good Air Flow. I took the thermal fuse out and it reads '0' on my ohm meter which means both connectors are connected just fine. Sears Kenmore Elite HE3 Electric Dyer. Needless to say this was very disappointing.

Any ideas?

My dryer wasn't heating either... I found the thermal fuse to be good. so i checked for other possible reasons and found one of the gas valve solenoid coils to be bad. I ordered a set and replaced them both. I was happy to see the flame come on and the dryer heated up as it should. But when i went to dry the first load...the dryer went cold after a few minutes. it's now back to its original problem, which was narrowed down to the coils. does this mean i the entire gas valve is bad or could it be something else?
