Sensei-tachi.
Forgive me. I have not searched a bit on where to start. I would normally like to but I am slammed with work to do and I just found out the dryer went out.

Everything seems to be working normally but no heat. I am guessing there is a gas ignitor that may have gone?

Please advise. Or direct me to the NoOb read fist section for dryers.

Domo arigatou.

NO heat, ?
OR heats at first for awhile, then no heat ..
remove the "peep hole plug" from the bottom front panel and view the Ignitor.
Does the Ignitor glow, but no flame ?

Reg, You the man. I think I have some good info for you.
So. Started the unit. Glow and flame up, beautiful blue and orange flame. I checked 2 minutes later. Flame is out, ignitor is glowing orange but no flame. The ignitor goes on and off but no flame.
What does that tell you sir?
