Kelly the mo. # islgr4634e00 and it starts running immediately
There is a thermal fuse in your dryer that may be open and not allowing your dryer to heat. This thermal fuse is wired in series with the igniter and is designed to prevent the machine from overheating. This fuse is located in the back of your dryer behind the rear panel. Unplug the dryer and remove the rear panel and set it aside. If you look just to the left of the vent tube that the exhaust hose hooks to, you will see a white, rectangular plastic part with two wires going to it, probably blue wires, that is the thermal fuse. It is number 7 in the diagram below. With the dryer unplugged, remove the wires from the thermal fuse and tape them together so they are making full contact with each other. Plug the dryer back in and see if it will then heat. If it does, the thermal fuse will need to be replaced, but you will also need to determine why it opened. The thermal fuse is pictured below. Let me know what happens after this simple test.
