Clothes Dryer

The Home Wizard app calculates your ideal home care program to avoid problems with your Clothes Dryer, but sometimes trouble can still occur. Here are answers to questions about clothes dryer (electric) glow coil.


Is it normal to see the coils of the dryer glow red, behind the screen on the inside, upon opening the dryer in middle of a cycle?


Dear JD:

It sounds like you have a GAS fired dryer, and what you are seeing is the "glow coil", or on some models, its called the "glow bar".

Yes, usually this will glow an intense bright yellow orange color when a gas dryer is operating. It is part of the igniter that fires the gas which heats the dryer.

To be sure that this is what you are seeing on your particular model, you should contact your specific manufacturer.

Hope this is helpful.
