Question about Whirlpool GGQ8831L Gas Dryer
Whirlpool 29''gas Dryer Model#LGN2000LW1
Flame will start for a moment and then go out. Blows cold air on the highest setting.
This is a different symptom than the one you requested earlier... This symptom suggests that the coils (booster and holding coils) at the burner valve have failed and should be replaced.
First, UNPLUG THE DRYER!
Gain access by removing the lint filter and removing the two screws that were hidden under there. Now take a flat screwdriver and pry the top panel up (like the hood of a car). There are two clips on each side.
Now the the top is up, disconnect the door switch (it's there on the right). Now look at the front panel from the inside... you'll see a screw on each side (they're 5/16" drive), remove them. Now tilt the panel out toward you about 3 inches, starting from the top. Now lift the panel one side at a time to disengage the clips at the bottom. Now set the panel aside.
You'll see the burner assy. on the lower right. On the top of the burner are two black coils held down by a bracket. One coil has two wires, the other has three. Remove the wires and remove the bracket. Lift the coils out (noting how they were installed) and replace them with new ones.
Rebuild is the opposite of tear down.
Hope this helps! Let us know how it works out for you, OK?
