Title: 110.72722100 70 series gas dryer will not heat
Post by: almolangi on March 27, 2010, 04:47:17 PM
I purchased the High limit tem thing and changed it out.  The dryer runs, spins but will not heat or turn off
Any ideas?

Model 110.72722100

If it works and quits you need to change the COILS (http://sites.google.com/site/sublimeappliancerepair/washer-will-not-spin/agitator-woes/dryer-will-not-work/how-do-i-get-inside-my-dryer/gas-dryer-quits-heating)

Thank you for your response.  The dryer basically works except it has no heat.  i do not feel any heat at the beginning.  It basically always blows cold air.  I thank you, but I think I will just buy a new dryer.  i spent 20.00 dollars for one of your guys to answer a question and all I receive was a link that requires me to go out and buy a OM reader or what ever it is to determine which part is bad.  No disrespect.  I understand he is just telling me that it can really be anything.  i just regret reading your site as I have baught the High limit Thermo from you with overnight cost me $55.00.  Then I had to buy the manual so I knew were to go, then I bought your service for 20.00 dollars.  All in all, I am already 30% into a new dryer. 

Thank you but I will just buy a new dryer.  It is more cost effective

Diagnostics & repair via internet (or phone) is very difficult and most DIYers are cognizant of that fact. Techs provide advice & information that *may* help identify the source of a fault.

This forum is not intended to replace or to be a substitute for trained Appliance Servicers in the home.


It should be understood that--when technical assistance is offered--that it *may* be BEYOND the DIYer's ability to apply that information in a way that produces a desired outcome.

Nothing is beyond a DIYer's ability; if you can do it I can too.
You just need a clue, that is what we do.  O0

I agree with JW.  O0

I would have to disagree with john63.

Being I am the one that started this forum I should have a good idea just what the intentions of this forum are. :)

Lets back up here....

You did not have to pay anything on our site to post your questions and have them answered. Our site is 100% free.

We also do not sell parts so you did not buy anything from us. If you used the parts search box on the left of our site it takes you to one of our parts affiliates.

This means you bought the part from AppliancePartsPros.com or RepairClinic.com and not from us.

There are other sites that charge you to post and sell parts directly to you, but we are not that type of site. Our site is free.

So far, I haven't seen any good "clues" for this gent. He would do well to  place his voltmeter at the 2 ignitor leads and see if there is 120 volts there when the dryer calls for heat. If so, the ignitor is bad.

Sir, before you  bought the high limit, manual and whatever else, did you first ask a pro what the problem could be or did you  just start buying parts? If you go about this the right way, it will save you hundreds of dolllars, including replacing the dryer.

I agree with Repair-man.

You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink.

AJ provides this site free of charge and us technicians volunteer our time, but there will still always be members that just don't get it.

It just dawned on me that this person is trying to fix the dryer without the help of a meter. Even I cannot do that, sorry. There is a small amount of science involved in this  job, and having the right tools is a necessity. A voltmeter is fairly cheap investment if you want to start saving some real money on repairs. It takes all the guesswork out of open circuits.


I try to make certain things like this clear on my own forum before someone gets too far in over their head by placing a "read first" page that explains how things work. There is also a paragraph which lists the limitations and exclusions of using a help forum like this and mine reads:

"Advice received on this forum is given free of charge and no liability is assumed by the site administrator or any authorized agent thereof. This includes advice given by outside moderators who have professional experience to provide free of charge on this forum. If the repairs suggested are beyond your level of expertise, then you should call in a local professional to assure a proper repair. Basic hand tools and a volt/ohm meter are the minimal requirements to test your appliances."

To me that is pretty straightforward.
