Question about Whirlpool LGB6300 Gas Dryer

1 Answer

Taking apart Whirlpool dryer

I have a Whirlpool dryer model LGB6300PW0 (natural gas).

The clothes are not drying and I do not hear the igniter clicking so I'm assuming that a coil valve is bad.

I've taken off the back and found that I can't access the part there. There are no bolts on the front panel. I was able to lift the top a bit and noticed that there are bolts holding the top down as well so I can't gain access this way. I also noticed bolts on the inside of the dryer holding the front panel in place. It appears that this was bolted from the inside out. I looked underneath the dryer and did not see any bolts here either.

I can't figure out how to service this dryer as there are no visible bolts - any help would be appreciated.

Thank you!

Taking to long to dry clothes


How long does it take you to dry your clothes? Normally, it takes 50 minutes (1 cycle) to 1.5 hours to completely dry clothes. However, if it's taking you at least 3 cycles (probably 2.5 to 3 hours) to dry a single batch of clothes, then, there might be a problem with your dryer's igniter.

Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

Whirlpool Gas Dryer (ggq9800pw1) - No Heat


You have a leak somewhere in your gas system, Either from the gas valve or some other tubing. In this situation unless you understand how it works I would recommend getting a tech out to look at your system. That way you know that it is being done properly.

My dryers isnt drying my clothes. How can i fix


Is it taking too long to dry or are you not getting any heat at all? If it's taking too long to dry, you'll need a new t-stat, if it's not heating at all, you need to replace the element and the thermal fuse. Email or call us with your model number and we'll be sure to get the right parts out to you right away. Hope this solves your problem and we hope to hear back from you real soon.

Whirlpool LGB6300PW0 gas dryerdried one load, but


The problem you describe is usually caused by a thermal fuse intended to shut the dryer motor down and keep it off because of a problem with air flow within the dryer.

The following process will allow you to test the thermal fuse and replace it if you find it open.

Unplug unit and turn off gas if gas model. Check to be sure you have 240 Volts at wall outlet.

Most parts likely to fail on electric dryers are inside the rear cover. Heater is on right inside can, safety thermostat on lower left of can, High limit thermostat (non-resettable) higher left of can. On the blower housing to the left are the operating thermostat and, in some models, a thermal fuse (white plastic). ALL can be continuity checked easily. Always disconnect wire on one side of what you are testing. One will likely be open. Replace the component that fails the continuity test.

The thermal fuse or high limit thermostat failure generally points to a reduction of air flow due to SOME blockage either inside the dryer or in the vent pipe leading out of the house. If you find either of these parts bad be sure to check the vents after replacing parts to ensure the same parts won't fail again. Operating any dryer in a closed room with the door closed may cause this problem.

Clothes Not Drying well


HI, Check the following to address this issue further.

Note: Normal drying time for a dryer is about 45 minutes (some may take up to an hour).

1. Venting
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

2. Thermostat
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat. These thermostats are located in the dryer vent duct and sometimes mounted on the blower assembly as well.

Dryer does not release any heat


Is yours the gas model? If so I need you to look for some things. Open back door panel and see if while trying to light the igniter is glowing orange. Sea Breeze
