There is a thermostat that regulates temperature. Your dryer MIGHT be overheating. Check your lint filter, vent, and vent hose for blockage first. If not, it might be time to replace the heating element.

I have a whirlpool gas dryer model LGR5620KQ1, I replaced the thermal fuse, still have no heat


When you push start look in the front lower cover and see if the glowing igniter glows. If it does then there is a flame sensor on the side of the burner that probably is bad.

Model #LGR5620KQ1 thermostat and thermal fuse are good and dryer still does not ge hot.


Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip.... If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check out this electric no heat tip...

Whirlpool dryer makes buzzing sound when flame should start.


Sounds like the valve is trying to open and the buzzing is the restriction of it opening. Coil is obviously correct, but actual solonoid is sticking. Replace it and see. If flame isnt detected, it will stop.

Dryer runs but doesn't heat up any ideas?


Most of the newer models have a safety on them if the dryer is pushed to close to the wall it will reduce the airflow and not let the heat ignite if you will to prevent a fire.If this is not the case then the heating element is defective. Hope this helps.

THE DRYER IS NOT GETTING HOT


Hi

Please check the following things that could stop a gas dryer from heating:- glow bar igniter, thermal fuse ( not all models ), coils on the gas valve, gas valve, thermostats, motor heat switch, timer, selector switch, sensor.
A page for checking gas dryers is here.

Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Dryer wont stay hot. it gets cold after first load


If dryer lights for a few minutes and will not stay lit, I believe the solenoid coils will need to be replaced. Click on link below, enter your model number lgr5620kq1 in model search feature and go to the dryer page it shows a breakdown view of your dryer. Also go to common solutions and look for gas dryer problems. I will also be here to help you, Sea Breeze

Whirlpool Dryer blows cold air when starting no heat


Did the fuse blow out? If so then the heating element is shorted out. This happens frequently when they fail. If the fuse is blown check the condition of or change out the heating element.
