SOURCE: Whirlpool LGN2000LW0 Dryer will not heat

The problem is more likely a thermal fuse or thermal cut out. Here is a video that walks you thru testing these http://appliancehelponline.com/gdryertroublevideo.html

Dryer hot at first and then stay cold


Sounds like the thermocouple needs replaced. When ever the couple doesn't make enough electricity the gas valve is shut down automatically. Sounds like your thermocouple is right at the threshold of minimum voltage and doesn't generate enough voltage to keep valve open.

If not that try YouTube for some good diagnostic videos:

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...

How do I light the pilot light


this dryer does not have a standing pilot it has an ignitor that comes on when you start the dryer if the dryer is not heating then you will more than likely have to replace the ignitor first make sure the dryer is plugged in

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
Please remember to leave a solved rating before you leave!

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.
