Question about Whirlpool LGB6300 Gas Dryer

1 Answer

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 anything anyways. What part really needs replacing, the ignitor, the coils, or something completely different?

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 .

SOURCE: Whirlpool Gold Ultimate Care II: No heat

didc, on a gas dryer, if the thermal fuse blows it will still rotate, but will not heat. Since this is a gas dryer, see if the ignitor is glowing. If it is, then you know the thermal fuse is good. If not, the thermal fuse may be blown or the ignitor itself and thus the reason for no heat. Catriver.7152136.jpg

The first thing you need to check is if you actually have 240 Volts going into the dryer. Sometimes one half of the (dual) circuit breaker opens and only sends 120 Volts down the line. If you hear a buzzing sound when you press "start" but nothing happens, it could be a stuck motor. Or the motor could be running but the belt is broke. There are more possible scenarios, but try this first.

    I have a Whirlpool ultimate 2 gas dryer Model #LGQ2285JQ1 When I view the igniter through the peep hole I see the glow and see the gas igniites.It lights quietly. However the gas turns off after just 5...


    Hello, welcome to FixYa.

    I'll start by saying your post indicates it is obviously a Whirlpool gas dryer. If this is a symptom were the ignitor does glow yet it won't ignite, or as you stated ignites for a short time before going out and not cycling back on...I would be looking at the burner coils.

    Once you've gain access to the coils you'll need to remove the wire harness and check the continuity.

    Here's the tricky part though...many times they will ohm out ok when cool (not operating) yet as soon as there is current passing through the coil it "opens".

    The wire inside the coils is so fine that often it only takes a small current to "open" the circuit...thus not igniting the 2nd, 3rd time and so on. Most times it will only be one coil that fails but it is good practice to replace them both, many places used to sell them in a kit so double check with your supplier.

    I've attached a link here, though it may be different than your model the principles to changing the coils are the same. As far as what part you may need and how to get it. There are a couple of places I prefer, on-line at "searspartsdirect.com" or "repairclinic.com".

    Kit contains both the two wire and three wire solenoids. One solenoid is the primary and one is the safety. Both have to operate for the gas valve to open. Usually, one of them burns out as I said but you should always replace them as a set.

    **Please turn off the gas and unplug the dryer before performing any service...safety first**

    The most common for Whirlpool (Maytag too) is part number 3479 at "repairclinic" as this link should provide you.

    http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Gas-Valve-Solenoid-Set/3479

    Let me know how you make out or if you require further assistance and I'll do whatever I can. Good luck.

    Regards,

    Macmarkus :)

    My Whirlpool GOld Ultimate Care II electric dryer is not drying well any longer. It is 5 years old and a load must be run 2-3 times to get it to dry. Please help.


    it could be your heating element but if you use dryer sheets take your lint trap out and see how well water will run thru it it may need to be washed in hot soapy water hope this helps

    Whirlpool gold ultimate care II dryer shuts off then won't start for a while.


    I am assuming this is a gas dryer and it gets hot to start then gas goes off? if so this is a problem with the saftey valve coils, this website will instruct you how to replace them.

    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.

    Thank You For trusting us with your question
