The ceramic ignitor probably is broke. turnoff power and gas, then remove burner assembly ther are two screws holding it in. also loosen gas connecter .pull burner out an visibly check igniter you most likely will see the ceramic coil broken remove it and bring it and model # to a part house then reassemble burner

My whirpool gas dryer model number wdg6200swq, wont heat up. the ignitor lights but no gas lights


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes 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 different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.


check out this electric no heat tip...

Drum turns but does not heat the air. I replaced the ignitor, but no help there. Whirlpool gas dryer model 63003W0


If the ignitor glows but does not light the burner you need to replace the gas valve coils.
If there is no glow you must check all the thermostat safeties and thermal cutout fuses for continuity with a ohm meter. No continuity is a bad component. Remove at least one wire from each component before testing.
Unplug the dryer before any test.

Not heating up Gas Dryer


Modern gas dryers do not have a pilot light. They have an electronic ignitor (glow or spark). A glow ignitor turns on several seconds before the gas turns on and should get orange hot. A spark ignitor should make a clicking or buzzing noise.

Most likely the ignitor is bad but you can check it fairly easily to make certain. The best instructions I have found are at

http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/dryer/gdryer/check/ignitor.php

If it is the ignitor it can be replaced with a few hand tools. Remove the bad ignitor. Write down the make, model, and serial # of your dryer. Call your local appliance parts store to see if they have one it stock before driving over there.

Have a Whirlpool Gas Dryer - model # lgr7646a spins but no heat


Thre is no pilot light. This dryer uses an ignitor (glow bar or coil).
Open the lower front "door" (small access door) and turn on dryer.
If the ignitor does not glow (bright orange), then the ignitor needs to be replaced ($60).
If it does glow, then the gas valve needs replacement ($60).
If it isd the valve, the internal spring is stuck. Do not try to repair it, you must replace it.

No heat from whirlpool dryer model lg6881xtw1 , replaced burner ignitor, still does not light up , what should i check next


Check the thermal fuse on the blower housing. That is assuming the glow bar does not light up. If the ignitor is glowing and it will not light it is likely one or both coils on the valve are bad. (replace as a set) Eric

No heat


Should be a cover about the size of a quarter on the front lleft bottom...pop off with a small screwdriver and start dryer....look inside and see if the glow bar lights up...if glow bright orange, probably good, may need gas solenoids or ignitor

There is no heat being produced


HI, Remove the front lower panel. Start the dryer and see if the ignitor glows. If it glows but the gas valve does not open, Change the coils on top of the gas valve.
If the ignitor does not glow, test the ignitor for 120V. If there is voltage to the ignitor but no glow, change the ignitor.
If there is no viltage to the ignitor, check continuity on the thermostats and the fuse that are located on the blower housing. Also test the sensor located on the burner.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Whirlpool gas dryer model number ler7646eq2 does not produce heat


Need more info. Does it rotate? If it has a viewing door on the front, you may see if the ignitor is glowing. If the ignitor glows, the ignitor (flame) sensor may be bad, and the ignitor will shut down.

Kenmore elite gas dryer


Does the ignition glow when you start the dryer? if so you have power to gas valve and ignition system. if not you may have an open thermostat or thermalfuse.

If the ignitor just sits there and glows all day, you have other problems, It could be a gas valve, or ignitor sensor.
