Possible Solutions

Is Gas Supply Connected and Shutoff Valve Open?

Make sure the dryer is connected to the gas supply.

The drum of a gas dryer will turn, but the dryer will not heat if the gas shutoff valve is closed. Open the gas shutoff valve in the supply line. The valve is open when the handle is parallel to the gas pipe.

Plug power cord into a grounded 3 prong outlet. Check the outlet by plugging in a lamp, or other type of device. Do not use an extension cord.

Check to see if a household circuit breaker or Ground Fault Circuit Interrupt (GFCI) outlet has tripped. If so, reset the circuit breaker or Ground Fault Circuit Interrupt. If the dryer is on a fuse box, check to see if a fuse has blown and replace it, if necessary. If the problem continues, call an electrician.

NOTE: It is recommended that a separate circuit serving only your dryer be provided. Use an outlet that cannot be turned off by a switch.
