Gas Dryer wont stay lit.


It may be your dryer vent piping. If the piping from the dryer to the outside of the house is clogged with lint (which happens periodically) the dryer cannot get rid of the heat generated by the gas burner. When the temperature reaches a certain level the high limit switch opens and shuts the burner off. The switch closes again after the dryer cools down. Check the lint filter and all the vent piping for any obstructions and clean out thoroughly. This should solve your problem. Hope this helps.

first check to make sure the venting isn't blocked by lint. second, check the igniter, if it is orange in color you need to replace it, it should glow white.

My whirlpool gas dryer model no LGR7646A has no heat, not sure iof this has a pilot or not, if not could it be some sort of safety switch taht shut down the dryer


I am 99% sure it is electronic ignition. There a dryers that had pilots but those are very old. So what you can do is start with the basics. Make sure the gas valve for the dryer is on and there is gas pressure coming from the connector. Make sure there is no debris blocking gas flow in the gas line. If the dryer has a removable door or burner inspection hole on the bottom pull it loose with a screw driver otherwise you will need to remove the back cover of the dryer. Turn on the dryer and watch for the hot surface igniter to come on. It will glow very bright then you should hear the gas solenoid valve click and the burner should come on. If the solenoid opens and the igniter does not come on inspect the burner orfice for any blockage. If the igniter does not come on then you will need to test the igniter for the proper ohm reading with a fluke meter. You will need to verify the igniter is getting power. If the igniter tests good it might be a bad solenoid valve(there are two) or a grounding issue.

I have a whirlpool LGR7646JQ0 gas dryer..the burner shuts off?


Sounds like you have a bad warp switch. Also could have a gas valve going bad.

Gas dryer burner cuts off after a few minutes of use


Your gas solenoid coils are bad. Replacing them will solve your problem.

Whirlpool gas dryer rotates, gas ignites but goes out, won't reig


coils on the gas valve, especially the single coils that whirlpool uses, break down after use. They may ohm out good when cold and the burner may light 1, 2, or 3 times, then you get ignition failure. Coils are bad. Hint when replacing coils. the front coil which has 3 terminals has a metal sleeve inside the coil. Make sure that sleeve stays with the valve. It can get stuck in the old coil and thrown away. Good luck

Dryer won't stay hot


Possible problem is the gas coils sticking. You can verify this if you turn on the dryer and are able to see the igniter glow orange and shut off without a flame in the burner funnel.

Gas Dryer won't stay hot


There is a thermoelectric eye that says it is OK to keep the gas burner on. If this sensor is defective or blocked from "seeing" the gas flame is properly lit, it will turn off the gas flow (safety) override solenoid. With the unit unplugged make sure that the optical path on the upper right (1:30 CW position) flame tube inside sensor window is clean. The rattle you hear is probably the safety gas shut-off solenoid engaging. If you need more help, please ask -- SWT

Check for a restricted vent. Clean vent and check for kinks. Make sure lint screen is clean. If you do-not have good airflow due to a restriction, the burner will not stay on. It's a safety thing.
