SOURCE: Whirlpool LGC8858EQ0 Natural Gas Dryer Problem:

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Below is a link to common solutions that will help you with parts and diagnostic procedures that are specifically tuned to your manufacturers data plate information.
It provides exploded view imagery, belt routing diagrams, parts imagery and function, parts ordering and shipping information, error code details, just about anything you need to get your appliance up and running again.

If your dryer doesn't heat, check these:

Temperature Switch, make sure a positive heat selection has been made. Then check these:

Igniter
Gas valve coils
Thermal fuse
Igniter Modern gas dryers use an electric igniter to ignite the gas from the gas valve. When it's working properly, the igniter glows bright orange. When it burns out, the dryer tumbles but there's no heat because the gas can't ignite. When the igniter burns out, you need to replace it. If the igniter is held by a tension bracket, you very well may need to replace the bracket too.

The igniter is inside the dryer housing, near the bottom front, usually in a cone-shaped metal tube (the force cone). It's about 2 inches long. It's mounted to the far end of the burner tube, and it has two wires attached to it--or to the tension bracket, if there is one.

Gas valve coils Watch the igniter. Does it glow bright orange, then shut off without igniting the gas? (When the gas ignites there's a large blue flame.) If so, there may be defective coils on the gas valve. Mounted on the top of modern gas valves, there are black electrical coils. The coils, when energized, open the gas valve. If one or more of the coils are defective, the valve doesn't open and the gas cannot ignite. Because it's often difficult to properly test the coils, it's usually best to replace both (all) of them at the same time.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

SOURCE: roper dryer no heating properly

Have you checked the lint trap and made sure the entire exhaust is clean? You may have a bad control switch that won't allow it to ignite on medium. The bigger problem is the short time cycle. Something is telling it to shut itself off for safety reasons.

SOURCE: dryer runs then stops after short periods (5-10 mins)

THere maybe a thermal limit sensor gone bad. Keeps the dryer from over-heating. Located behind rear panel on most and mounted on the heat tube. Verify with volt/ohm meter if possible

Dryer runs for about 5 minutes then shuts off. It gets hot and drum rotates but it keeps shutting off. Then it takes about a half hour before it will start again.


It sounds like you're not getting good airflow and thus tripping the thermistor. Make sure all the vents are clear and the lint trap is clean.

Roper dryer runs for about 5-10 min. then shuts off. After 10-15 min I can restart, but same thing happens. What up?

Dryer cuts out after about 3-5 min of use, removed vent pipe from dryer and still same results.


The only thing that would make it quit would be the motor overload. If it was the fuse the dryer would die and stay dead till you replaced it. heater limits go out she gonna still run. It has to be the motor overload. Reach inside and turn the drum by hand. If it turns easy then your motor is probably overheating. Sometimes you can get a little more life outta that motor. HERE IS HOW

Our GE Profile dryer keeps shutting off, regardless of setting, after it has run for 4 or 5 min. Could it be overheating or maybe the vent to the outside is clogged?


it certainly sounds to me like a blocked vent issue somewhere along the line and in order to prevent a fire the safety thermostat shuts the heater off. are you saying the dryer stops altogether, not just the heat?

Dryer overheats and shuts off- vents have been cleaned and button on back has not reset


Common problem.
You probably need to clean
your dryer vent. Dryer vents
should be cleaned every couple of years to
prevent them from being clogged with lint. You can check the air-flow by going outside where the vents terminate. What's probably happening is on sensor dry, there's a moister sensor that tells the machine to shut off when there's no moister. The hot is is being pushed back into the dryer and confusing the sensor. That's why it's working on timer dryer because that option bypasses the moisture sensor.

I'm pretty sure that's it. Good luck.
