Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Do you have a model number for your dryer?
This will allow me to provide you with breakdowns and part numbers if you need them. Just let me know when you can get it for me.

Great! Let me pull that up.
Do you have a voltmeter and are you pretty handy?
This could be a couple of things on your unit but I think you should start by testing the igniter on the unit. Do you know how to open the dryer up?
I will post a link that will show you how to open it up. Be sure you unplug it first. This video will show you how to open a washer and dryer that are your style. They both open the same way.
Once open, you will be able to locate the heater assembly on your dryer. Number 4 in the picture below is the igniter.
Once you locate the igniter you can use this video to learn how to test it.
