Re: my whirl pool dryer does not dry?
Coil never gets power usually a sign that you have a blown thermal fuse , small white 2in' fuse located behind rear panel, there should be a wire diagram behind the console, few screws acrosss the back

let me ask you this does the ignitor glow orange but no flame when you have no heat?usually on a gas dryer if at first you have heat and then after 10 to 30 minutes no heat it's usually the gas coils located on top of the gas valve,common problem,after the coils cool down they will work again,that dryer is kind of complicated to work on seeing how it does have two motors in it but you should be able to get at the gas coils,if you send the model number i can look it up for you.but it sounds like you have bad gas coils,the only way to tell is run the dryer,when the heat stops working look at the ignitor,if it glows orange and the flame doesn't ignite you have bad gas coils.
Try putting a vaccume cleaner as far down the vent hose as it will go and suck anythng in there out, , And if you can put a vacume cleaner attachment in the lint trap and suk some stuff out as well ,, other than that i doubth that there is anything else that can cause the problem...
it is either your glow coil or it is your ignitor
open the door and remove the four screws
take the front panel off.
leave the door attached so you can test the dryer
be very careful not to touch any wires while you are doing this
now close the door and turn the dryer on
does the ignitor turn on?
if yes that is good
does the ignitor glow and no flame?
sometimes it will take a minute to show it's problem
if the ignitor glows and no flame replace your ignitor coils
make sure to turn the power off when replaceing the coils
You more than likely have a buildup of lint in the vent hose. Even what looks like not much lint in there can cause the dryer to have issues drying the clothes. Clear the hose out really well, take it outside and shake it all out, then hook it back up and give it a shot.
If that doesnt work you may have a bad thermal fuse which regulates the dryer temperature and you will need to have it replaced.
make sure that your vent is not plug up can you go outside your house and feel good air coming out the vent when the dryer is turn on if so the only other things it could be is the coils that sit on the ignotor assmebly or the high limit termistat is not working properly the coils are little black circle coils that sit in the ignitor assmly should have a metal braket across the top of them holding them in you can check resistance on these coils if you have an meter
