Question about Whirlpool TGDX640P Dryer
Dryer runs but no heat also the auto sense high heat cycle does not time out..all other cycles time out but there is still no heat..where do i begin to fix the problem dryer runs but no heat also the auto sense high heat cycle does not time out..all other cycles time out but there is still no heat..
Well first thing... gas dryers don't have heater elements..
First thing to do is look on the bottom left of the front panel of you gas dryer. there is a small plastic plug to remove to look at the burner. Remove that and start the dryer on a heat cycle, if you look through the hole you should see the igniter start to glow within 30 sec. If not remove the back panel from the dryer and you will see a thermal cut-off (small thermostat with 2 wires) on the burner vent. you will need to remove the wires and test for continuity on the thermal cut-off. replace if there is no continuity. If that tests correctly and or if the Igniter did glow, you will need to open the dryer from the front. Remove the to screws from where the lint screen is and pry the top open . Disconnect the door switch and remove the 2 screws holding the front panel,tilt the front panel forward ,lift and remove. disconnect belt and remove drum.
If the Igniter glows and stays glowing for more the 15 to 20 seconds, replace the sensor on the side of the burner. If it glows and go's out after 20 seconds or so and will not light replace the gas coils. if the igniter did glow at all you may have to do a ohm test on the igniter or take a close look at it, you may see a crack or burn mark on it. Less likely cause's are faulty timer or motor switch.
