I have a KBNU367TSS and I am having problems with 3 of the 4 ignitors. Two of them will not work at all and one of them gets red but not hot enough to ignite the gas. The rear burner ignitor works fine....


One problem with glo plug ignitions is the loss of voltage across the glo plug. Each glo plug has to have the correct amount of current to get hot enough to light the gas. If the current is to low, the plug will glow, but not light the gas. You have to open the grill up and check the wiring, etc for shorts, bare spots in the wires insulation, etc.

remove the top cover,then the front cover,then check the burner tubes ignitor or glo-bar that ignites the gas,the high-limit thermostat on the burner tube for continuity,the thermal fuse and cycling switch on the blower housing both of these should show continuity or good like a standard fuse would show

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.

I ran the drier 3 times using medium press. The heat is on and it is hot, but the clothes is not dry.


Hi, Does this dryer heat at first and then stop heating late in cycle?
Remove the lower front panel and start the dryer. Look and see if the ignitor glows and if you get a flame or not. If the ignitor glows and then shuts off before you get a flame, the coils on top the gas valve need changed.
If the ignitor does not glow, UNPLUG the dryer and check the fuse located on the blower housing (whits with two wires going to it). Check and see if it has continuity to it.If there is no continuity, change it.
Please let me know if this helps you so far.

Dryer turns but no heat and knob doesn't move


Check the switch on the motor. It may have failed, or has a wire/terminal broken/disconnected. It is a multi-contact switch. both sections must click. Could also be mechanically loose on the motor and therefore just not getting fully activated.

Hope this is helpful.

Gas dryer with no heat


check the ignition might be a glo-bar element or a maintained high voltage spark module. once there is a pilot a flame rod or a millivolt generator opens the main valve for fire.
