There is no pilot. It is electronic ignition via a glow bar.
Remove the front panel. The glow bar and gas valve will be on the bottom right side.
What is your problem?

Have a Whirlpool Gas Dryer - model # lgr7646a spins but no heat


Thre is no pilot light. This dryer uses an ignitor (glow bar or coil).
Open the lower front "door" (small access door) and turn on dryer.
If the ignitor does not glow (bright orange), then the ignitor needs to be replaced ($60).
If it does glow, then the gas valve needs replacement ($60).
If it isd the valve, the internal spring is stuck. Do not try to repair it, you must replace it.

Whirlpool dryer not heating up


It does not have a pilot. It uses a glow bar ignition system. You probably have a bad glow bar if it is not heating at all part number 279311

No heat in gas dryer


Remove the front panel. Leave the door switch wires connected.
Turn the dryer on and look for the glow bar ignitor to glow red.
This may take a couple minutes.
No glow. Replace the ignitor.

Whirlpool gas dryer motor wont turn over


If the drum is not turning, then the belt may have broken and could be (because of the noise I think your describing, partially wrapped around the motor pulley.

Modern gas dryers do not have standing pilot lights. They are electronic ignition.

Chances are, you solve the belt problem, you'll solve the (I guess your having) heat problem.

Please respond with more detail of the problems you are having, and advise if the belt is broken.
