Question about Whirlpool Dryers
I do believe the repair man hosed you on the motor. Most of my experience is with electric dryers but I can try to shed some light on the subject. I would test the safety thermostat if it is open you can temporally short the leads together to see if it heats up. It is about $70.00 so you do not want to just swap it out, do not run for a long period of time if you short the leads out (Fire is Bad). Next check the Sensor on the burner unit which turns on the Electronic gas valve ($200.00 Ouch) or it could be a clog it the orifice. Do you smell Gas by the burner unit? Next is the Igniter which you should hear click. A volt meter is recommended to test the components and an Ohm Meter to test the Safety Thermostat. I wonder if your repairman even took his out of the truck.
