Your GAS dryer has no element.
You should remove the vent from the rear of the dryer.
Run on hi heat with no laundry.
Your exhaust temperature should be from 130 to 165 degrees.
If not you have a thermostat problem or a ignitor/gas valve problem.

Dryer shuts after one minute


If it heats then you're getting 240 to the dryer. Take off the vent hose and look for a lint build up in the hose and where it connects to the house. Restriction will cause the dryer to shut off the heat to avoid a fire.

Whirlpool Imperial Series Dryer is Not Drying But Has Heat


Make sure it's blowing air out the vent outside. But even though it's heating doesn't mean it's heating 100 percent so u might need a heating element. Not to expensive to buy and often not to hard to change, refer to owners Manuel or a computer on how to change it.

Dryer won't dry


Well lets talk about it a minute. The ignitor is ok because it does glow. The flame sensor is ok because the ignitor is working. The only other thing in the circuit is the solenoids. So what goes wrong? Those coils get hot and quit with age.7ecd66c.jpg Replace them and the dryer will come back to life.5dc4e80.jpg

Hi i have a whirlpool gas dryer LGR8648LWO and


If your ignitor (glow bar) is glowing that indicates the thermal fuse is okay.

With the symptoms you are describing it is acting more like an air flow issue than a component failure. Make sure your door seal is good, your venting is connected properly and try it again. I would not install the thermal fuse.

Whirlpool dryer won't dry


If your dryer spins and heats properly and the clothes don't dry, then very simply put, the moist air is not being taken away. If your drying temp is adequate, then the problem is with the exhaust. Go to where the air is being exhausted outside your home, if working properly, when you put your hand on the air coming out, it should get damp very quickly. And ALWAYS clean the lint trap after every load!!!!
