Gas drier Whirlpool LGR5634LQ0 drum turns, no heat. Turn off and restart, heats for a while then no heat for drying. Lint is clear, etc... Gas valve is in on position. Not sure what to do next. Check...


most gas dryers will have a problem with the 2 coils on top of the valve.
when these coils are weak or going bad, it will heat for a short while then no heat at all.
if you let the unit set for an hour or 2, it will heat again for a short peroid.
the coils are easy to replace, but do get both of them.

My gas whirlpool dryer won't heat. Cool air does


Hi

Things that could stop a gas dryer from heating:
- glow bar igniter, thermal fuse ( not all models ), coils on the gas valve, gas valve, thermostats, motor heat switch, timer, selector switch, sensor.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Why dosent my dryer get heat


There is a sensor for detecting airflow. If the dryer is unable to exhaust properly it will shut down the heat for safety reasons. Be sure the exhaust vent is not obstructed, and that there is good exhaust air flow. If there is insufficient exhaust, find and correct that condition.

Hope this helps.
