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.

Have had a repair man out 3 times. Replaced igniter and gas regulator. Dryer will heat for a few minutes then stop heating. When I try to turn it back on, it will not turn on at all for about 10 minutes.


Are you saying the dryer will not start again after a few minutes? That is a motor [problem. Replace motor.
Are you saying dryer starts after a few minutes but will not heat? That is an air flow problem or a gas valve coil problem. Thoroughly clean EVERY single air passage in the dryer and vent tube. If that does not cure it, then replace gas valve coils if the igniter comes on and off.

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.

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
