Probably the pilot valve is faulty. If the pilot stays lit the unit will still work properly, but should be repaired soon.

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...

Gas dryer pilot light won't light, stay lit


The pilot light has a thermal sensor above it to determine if the gas is burning or not. If the pilot light goes out, it cools and then the gas line automatically closes so that you don't get a constant stream of gas. When the sensor dies, the same thing happens -- no gas for the pilot.
Replace that sensor.

Dryer making clicking noise when running. Heat no longer working. Gets "stuck" in a cycle continues running and dial not moving.


Based on symptoms, this is a gas dryer. The clicking that you hear is the solenoid opening so that gas can flow and be lit. Except that gas isn't flowing, or the igniter is burned out (if or pilot is blown out if so equipped).

It is normal for the dial not to move unless it is in a timed dry mode (like air or freshen mode) because the moisture level of the clothes is not changing.

We have a commercial inglis gas dryer..under door is a model number JO-71200 when i search for it says no match.dryer quit about a week ago we replaced a few rollers then we noticed clothes weren't...


Well I'm not familiar with gas delivery systems on dryers, but I can tell you how they work on home heating boilers and I'm sure they are very similar. There are two type, standing pilot (which you have) and spark ignition. Spark ignition uses two electrodes with an electric spark to ignite the gas. Now your situation your dryer may have what is called a thermocouple which is like a little metal cylinder connected to a wire. When the flame is lit it heats that thermocouple which produces a voltage. That voltage keeps your gas valve open to keep the pilot light lit. If your pilot light is lit then the thermocouple is not bad. You need to check your circuit and see where the break is. Its true it could be a thermostat. To check a thermostat you need to take it off the dryer and you can either use a lighter or put it in boiling water till you hear is pop or open up. If you hear it pop twice then it is good (you'll hear it pop once when it heats up and once when it cools down). There is a circuit that keeps that gas valve open, and after 10 seconds something is opening that gas valve circuit, you need to see what all is connected to it, then you will solve your problem.

Dryer runs fine but does not heat


Check that the pilot light is lit and flame kicks on when dryer is activated. If no flame, then check gas valve. If only pilot remains lit but does not increase when dryer is activated, then you could have a bad coupler or sensor or circuit problem which would have to be tested with a voltmeter and/or test light.

Pilot working but will not dry completely.


Check the burner vents--both intake and outlet for lint plugging. With the pilot working, it is supposed to heat a thermocouple which generates electricity that opens the main gas valve.

General question on pilot light


Gas dryers have electronic ignition. No pilot to worry about. Dry away. Careful, don't lose those socks now. Have a good day.

Roeper Gas Dryer not heating


 If your unit has a standing pilot, is the pilot lit?  If not, push the Basso control button and light it according to the instruction sticker.
Next, the main thing you should suspect is the capillary tube.  This thin tube runs from a hollow bolt on the gas control to the gas burner. If defective, it will not allow the unit to light off further.  Remove the tube, take it to the hardware store and get a replacement and install.  If these two items don't fix the unit, get professional help.
