Hello, I have Amana LG4309W heavy duty gas dryer.


sounds like one of the supply fuses at the house panel,these 240 volt dryers are wired so the timer is on one phase(120)volt and the motor is on the opposite phase(120)volt and the heating element is on both phases for a combined 240 volts,if you lose one phase you either wont get motor operation or timer operation,and for sure no heat and you have the timer so you have 120volts

I have a frigidaire gallery heavy duty dryer, gas burning. It has heated/dried my laundry less and less, and now does not seen to heat up at all. What part do I need to replace?


You may have aproblem withthe venting. Make sure the the fan can blow freely through and out the vent. If this gets parially blocked it cuts down the air flow and will make the dryer run too hot and keep the burner off. The other thing taht it could be is the temperature sensor that turns the gas burner on and off. Sometimes they will go bad and not let the burner stay on long enough to heat properly.

It sounds like your heating element has broken. There are several links provided on this site on how to replace it. You might want to take a look at davesrepair.com to purchase a new one. He has pretty good prices on the element.

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.

Dryer wont stay on... it appears to have intermittent heat.


You have a broken belt. This dryer is complimacated but here goes.Remove the console screwsand flip the control panel upwards simular to what they do on washers. Remove the 3 screw in the rear that hold the top and get the top off. Pop the bottom panel and back off the screws holding the front on then remove the screws from inside the top. You can get the front off now. Get the drum out and clean out the dryer. Oil all 4 wheels and idler. You will note the micro switch below the idler. that stops the drum from turning when the belt breaks. You will be a pro if you can fix this one.
