It is a whirlpool gas ultimate care II dryer i think it is lgq9858pw.... problem not drying.. it sounds like a rattle when you would think the burner is starting... just went through the unit and had it firing as usual but the first time when moved back in place it stopped firing, the second time when i placed the back on again it stopped firing.... removed the lower front plug and i can see after a few seconds the ignitor starts to glow.... but the rattle continues... is this a gas inlet problem or is the glow not correct... please help wet clothes do not wear well!!!!

The problem here is most likely the air temp sensor (this is generic to all dryers) is defective and signaling the gas control valve to shut off the gas flow. I recommend you replace the air temp sensor, also make sure the dryer air vent is not obstructed this will cause this problem as well. go to the following link to get advice and parts to fix this problem.

Hi, the ignition is fine, this is an issue concerning the gas solenoid coil assembly. the rattle is coming from the coils. they activate the solenoids, which, open and close the gas valves. Simply replacing the gas valve solenoid coils with fix this issue you are having.

You can buy a Burner Assembly 60 Hz Gas valve solenoid coil kit that will replace the entire assembly or, you can just order the Gas valve solenoid coil kit.

    Sure, i have posted links above that will direct you to purchase pages with the appropriate price info. the location of the burner assembly is in the same proximity as the glow ignition module. you will have to approach it form the backside of the unit. make sure you shut off the gas when disassembling the assembly.

    the coils are part of the burner assembly. its a integrated design.

    The burner assembly will be on the backside on the bottom right hand corner. the coils are sitting on the top. they will look like two cylinders with wire contacts. I have also located a diagram that will help. its exploded for a good view. click below to access. the cabinet break down is on page 3.

    My whirlpool ultracare !! dryer will not heat. I have to dry things over and oer and over til they finally dry.


    i looked up your model number and that's to a washer not a dryer.if it's a gas dryer it sounds like you have bad gas coils located on top of the gas valve.the coils work until they heat up like in the first 15 to 30 minutes and they shut down,when they cool they work again until they heat up and fail,this is why you have to keep running thedryer,one more problem could be the dryer needs to be cleaned out.clean out the vent line,clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into and vac out the cabinet where the motor is

    I have a Whirlpool gold Ultimate Care II gas dryer and 2/3 times the ignitor glows and lights the gas, 1/3 times it won't. When the gas does light, it doesn't seem like it's getting hot enough to do...


    I would suggest the coils on the gas valve . Also check the vent to make sure good air flow is getting out of the dryer . Try disconnecting the vent hose and drying a load to determine if maybe the vent is the problem .

    I have a whirlpool gold ultimate care II electric dryer and have to dry everything on high twice to get it dried. any suggestions?


    first how is the clothes out of the washer? That might not be spinning fast enough in final spin. When was the last time the dryer vents was cleaned. Do you have a flow out the vent? If so then something might be going on with sensors.

    Where is the pilot light on the Whirlpool Ultimate Care II Dryer?


    Hello gigiknoll
    Welcome to Fixya
    My name is Huum,

    This model should be electronic ignition and does not use a pilot light.
    The igniter may be faulty.or the gas module may be faulty.
    Pilots are a thing of the past!
    This requires a tech to test it with equipment.
