Question about Dryers

1 Answer

I have a whirlpool dryer "LGB6300LW0", that isn't drying. The burner comes on and will go out and come back on. This I guess is to keep the tempature consentant.But after a while the burner doesn't come on anymore. I watched as it tried to ignight and saw the glo-plug light up but then go out without ignighting the burner. The dryer continues spinning but doesn't shut off. I've turned the dryer off for a half hour and then the burner will ignight again.

It's likely one of the coils is opening a break in the coil as the coil heats up. This coil will shrink when cool and be able to run again. The number for the coil kit, which will replace ALL the coils, for your machine is 279834.

Disconnect power and turn off gas before working on this dryer. Working on gas dryers is not recommended for people who are not professionals.

Disconnect Power. Lift Cover on lint filter. Remove two screws Phillips screws taking care NOT to allow them to fall into the blower housing. Place putty knife in the seam between the top and front panel about 2” in from either side. Push in on clip while pulling control panel forward and tilting putty knife handle up, all at the same time. Same on opposite side. Raise top all the way.

Looking down inside dryer on left and right see a 5/16” hex head screw about 6 inches down. Remove each side while holding front panel in place. Pull top of front panel about 3 inches forward from sides and then pull up. This will disengage the front panel from lower pressure clips and allow you to turn it sideways and expose the dryer interior. Reverse process to re-assemble. Take careful note of belt configuration BEFORE removing it. Draw a diagram of its travel.

Motor and idler pulley for dyer will be on right. Gas components, if present, will be on left
Replace All coils with Kit Number listed above. Take care not to touch or hit the ignitor or you will be replacing it also. It is VERY brittle.

You should know that dryer has a thermal fuse located along exhaust Of heat... When You over load the machine the flow of air is not enough... Then thermal fuse is damaged ( open due security condition ) and the flame is turn off all the time... Just replace the thermal fuse. I hope this can help You. Sincerely

I have a Whirlpool LER4634PQ1 it was working just fine then all of a sudden the dryer just keeps running the knob on the dryer doesn't move and the air isn't warm. Any suggestions on what to s


there is a cycling thermostat in line with the high limit thermostat and timer circuit,on timed dry its disabled and the timer will run no matter what,on any sensor dry setting it uses the heat of the element to heat this cycling thermostat to move the timer as the clothes get drier as the heating element heats the timer doesn't move,when the heater cycles off from the high limit thermostat then timer moves again,you need to find out if its a bad heating element,thermal fuse or possibly even a circuit breaker in the homes electrical panel tripped out on one of the 2 phases that gives you the 240 volts required to operate the dryer element,the breaker may not show its tripped,so shut it off and back on and try this first

Whirlpool Carbrio dryer buzzing noise while running. Works OK just keeps buzzing off and on while drying. Not a grinding sound.


OK, remove the 2 screws on the front lower kick plate. Run the dryer to see if the buzzing is coming from the motor or from the burner area. Post back your results.

Have a whirlpool electric dryer. My wife said that she noticed a burning smell from the back of the dryer while it is running. The clothes are still being dried though. Any suggestions? We have had this...


Usually, lint has found it's way into the burner chamber. This is often evidenced by small brown spots on clothes. To resolve, unplug the machine and open it up and investigate the burner area.

When finished cleaning, remove the outlet hose, turn on the unit and form an opinion about air flow.....Hook hose back up, turn machine on, and go outside the building, and verify very similar air flow volume. Any restriction will slow drying and allow more lint to get drawn into the air inlet.....

Whirlpool dryer model LER7646EQ1


Thats what it's supposed to do hopefully the clothes are coming out dry. The dryer has both thermal sesors and fuses that tell the dryer when to heat up and when to cool down. So yes the heating element will come on and go off multiple times in a cycle.
