    Hello dreas15

    Your dryer does have a gas pilot like you said.
    I thought it was auto ignite!


    The later year ones have an electronic ignition.
    The access door is in the rear or the front depending on the year and model!
    I believe that the public service(Gas Company) will come out and light your pilot for free!
    they do not want to be responsible for any accidents!
    Huuum.
    Pleas leave a rating before you sign off to call your gas company!

My dryer heats up but the drum does not rotate im going to try and see if the belt has broken any other suggestions?


Most likely belt has broken. Once in awhile, the belt will work its way off if you had weird loads like shoes or something. The other likely possibility is the motor. Motors are very simple to replace as well.

Whirlpool estate electric dryer takes three full cycles to dry. Not sure if it is the heating element or the thermal fuse? This dryer is a 1/3 HP motor large capacity, heavy duty dryer.


Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

Dryer wont start when start button is pressed, but humming sound


I'd sure start by making sure the belt isn't broken. You can usually see the belt with a flashlight after accessing the panel (some are in front, others in the rear) - don't go probing around bare armed without unplugging the unit....

Whirlpool dryer won't heat how can I fix?


Hey, I just read an article online titled, Testing for 240 Volts to Your Dryer - Without a Voltmeter, here's the link http://www.davesrepair.com/DIYhelp/DIY240Vtester.htm

I am not sure how you could test anything else though, such as the thermal fuse or thermostat, without the Volt/Ohm Meter. They are about $10 at any big box home store--we just went ahead and bought one.

Good luck!

Whirlpool model number LGV7646ANO gas dyer will not heat up


Can you hear a click like always? If not then it has to be either the fuse, ignitor,or sensor. If you hear it clicking then the operator coils are dead. HERE is a link that shows pictures of these parts and locations.
