Question about Whirlpool Dryers
BURNER GOES ON FOR 30 SECONDS THEN IT GOES OUT CLOTHES TUMBLE BUT DO NOT DRY.I THINK IS THE SOLENOIDS, THE DRYER IS OLD AND COULD NOT FIND MODEL # IN THE LIST, NEED HELP WITH PART # AND WHERE TO GET IT. TYVM FOR YOUR IDEA
Whirlpools are great. There is a flame sensor near the igniter, it gets dusty and can't sense the flame. Carefully wipe it off, without bumping the igniter, it's super delicate. Sometimes the sensor can be removed for cleaning, just held in place by a little screw.

check your breaker first.A dryer will run on 110 but wont heat.if not breaker it could be your thermal fuse or element.the thermal fuse is located on element cage,unplug machine and test for continuity to your thermal cut off fuse which will be the top one on cage and check continuity to element.

SOURCE: 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

Sounds like you need to replace the coils on the gas valve. Just make sure your venting is clear 1st. If it is, the coils are easy to replace. Remove the front panel and the coils are on the bottom right hand side. Two screws and the bracket for both comes off. One has two terminals and the other has three. Real easy once you get into the dryer.

replace the gas valve coils. they sit right on top of the gas valve. they are black and round, and clide down over a shaft. remove screw from plate holding them, and slide them up and off, replace, and it will run....turn gas off while working on unit:)

Testimonial: "thank you "
By far, on that machine the "thermal fuse" accounts for more than 50% of all heating problems.
Unplug machine and remove back cover. On the air chute in the middle back of the dryer you will see a small narrow bakelite device with 2 wires connected to it. It is held in with 1 screw.
You will need an ohm meter to test it, or remove it and have an
appliance parts house test it for you. If bad replace.
Whirlpool part #3392519.
The second common problem on that dryer is the heating element and can be checked with an ohm meter as well.
On rare occasions one side of the 230 volt supply is out.
The side running the motor is o.k. but the heater side has lost power.
Caution: your dealing with 230 volts here. remove plug receptacle cover and check with a volt meter for power.
