From the sound of your problem, it appears you may have a faulty overtemp switch that gets too hot , opens the circuit to disable gas and flame, then cools down and allows it to start again.. Since you didn't provide a specific model number with your question.. use this link to find replacement whirlpool thermal fuses etc.. http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/whirlpool-dryer.php#fuse

Hope this helps..

The dryer keeps stopping (the timer skips from 50 mins to 10 mins in secs) AND what worries me the most is, I haven't needed to empty the lint trap.


Well, well.
Am I to understand the timer dial is going really fast as you watch it?
I didn't know that was possible, but maybe the wiring has been compromised (shorted out) somehow. If so, you would need to take it all back apart and look for a wire that is pinched or incorrectly hooked up. Some Whirlpool dryers have numbers on the back of the timer that are supposed to match numbers that are actually printed on the wires themselves.
As far as the lint trap, perhaps one of the "pipes" inside the dryer is unhooked or loose causing the hot air to miss the screen.
Be blessed.

My whirlpool gas dryer stopped getting hot in the middle of a cycle. We took the back panel off and cleaned it to make sure there was no excess lint. Is it worth getting fixed? Joyce


Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip.... If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check outthis electric no heat tip...

Dryer runs then stops after short periods (5-10 mins)


THere maybe a thermal limit sensor gone bad. Keeps the dryer from over-heating. Located behind rear panel on most and mounted on the heat tube. Verify with volt/ohm meter if possible

Dryer heat turns off after about 5 min- dyer will remain running but no heat


HI, After the heat shuts down, do you hear a click like it is trying to heat again but then get no flame. The most some problem is the coils on the gas valve go bad and will not reopen after they have heated up.
Remove the cap on the front lower left panel. After dryer has ran and heat shuts down, watch and se if the ignitor glows again (you will hear a click) and the ignitor shuts off before a flame. If this happens, change the coils on th gas valve.
Here is instruction: Normal 0 UNPLUG the dryer. This model you need to remove the two screws under the lint screen. Now use a flat blade screw drive and insert it in the gap between the top and the front panel and pry the top up. Now locate and remove the screws on the inside of the front panel in upper corners. The front should lift off. You will see the two black coils on the gas valve. When you remove the three wire coil, make sure the sleeve inside it gets put back on the post the coils slides onto.
If I can assist you further, please let me know.

Thanks
Vic

Whirlpool Dryer LGQ9508PW0 flame comes on and shuts off after 30 seconds.


this might actually be normal, whats the complaint??? to long to dry clothes maybe 2-3 cycles??? would be a common complaint. in which id check to make sure vent is not clogged anywhere, especially where exiting the home if he venting is ok id replace the coils atop the gas valve, possible and common for that matter that after running for 20-30 min they do not reopen and dont allow flem to reignite... part number 279834 retails for about $20 easy enough repair.... reason for flame to go on and turn off after only 30 secs is that in an empty dryer 30 secs of heat may be enough to satisfy the thermostat, that's alot of heat for an empty dryer, it would remain on for longer with a load of wet clothes absorbing the heat

Gas dryer tumbles no heat.


I would change out the igniter, When they start failing hey will glow but not draw enough amps to open the gas switch / valve.
