There is no flame type pilot. when you turn on the dryer remove small cover on lower left front panel to view if you see a orange glow, which means your ignitor is getting power listen for 1ckick sound and then a second after the ing glows. there a few things that could be bad ignitor. soleinods on the gas valve or a bad thermal fuse

I have a Whirlpool gas dryer, I can see through the hole that the piolet light is not lit. Model #LGR7646EQ3. It is not heating to dry clothes, can I just try & relight the pilot light?


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...

Have a Whirlpool Gas Dryer - model # lgr7646a spins but no heat


Thre is no pilot light. This dryer uses an ignitor (glow bar or coil).
Open the lower front "door" (small access door) and turn on dryer.
If the ignitor does not glow (bright orange), then the ignitor needs to be replaced ($60).
If it does glow, then the gas valve needs replacement ($60).
If it isd the valve, the internal spring is stuck. Do not try to repair it, you must replace it.

Where can I light the pilot


You're dryer has an ignitor not a pilot. To check, either pull the lower front panel or pop out the key hole. Start dryer and watch if the ignitor comes on it should shine brightly almost white. If it does'nt light at all(should at least turn red). there could be no voltage to the ignitor.

How do you light pilot light?


Dryer does not have pilot light.  There is an ignitor that glows when the dryer is started and lights the flame when the gas begins to flow.  With the front of the dryer off start it up and look for the glow. when it glows hot enough (or on a newer model it might be a spark) the gas should ignite.  When the flame sensor sees that the gas is ignited it shuts off the ignitor and keeps the gas valve open until the temperature sensor gets high and shuts it off.  When the temp sensor cools down the cycle repeats.
If no glow or spark-->bad ignitor If no gas flow-->bad flame sensor or bad gas valve coil If gas comes on and goes off quickly-->lint filter and/or vent pipe or outlet may be clogged or bad flame sensor.

Where is the pilot light on the Whirlpool Ultimate Care II Dryer?


Hello gigiknoll
Welcome to Fixya
My name is Huum,

This model should be electronic ignition and does not use a pilot light.
The igniter may be faulty.or the gas module may be faulty.
Pilots are a thing of the past!
This requires a tech to test it with equipment.

Thank You For trusting us with your question

Whirlpool gas dryer motor wont turn over


If the drum is not turning, then the belt may have broken and could be (because of the noise I think your describing, partially wrapped around the motor pulley.

Modern gas dryers do not have standing pilot lights. They are electronic ignition.

Chances are, you solve the belt problem, you'll solve the (I guess your having) heat problem.

Please respond with more detail of the problems you are having, and advise if the belt is broken.
