Question about Whirlpool Dryers
I am 99% sure it is electronic ignition. There a dryers that had pilots but those are very old. So what you can do is start with the basics. Make sure the gas valve for the dryer is on and there is gas pressure coming from the connector. Make sure there is no debris blocking gas flow in the gas line. If the dryer has a removable door or burner inspection hole on the bottom pull it loose with a screw driver otherwise you will need to remove the back cover of the dryer. Turn on the dryer and watch for the hot surface igniter to come on. It will glow very bright then you should hear the gas solenoid valve click and the burner should come on. If the solenoid opens and the igniter does not come on inspect the burner orfice for any blockage. If the igniter does not come on then you will need to test the igniter for the proper ohm reading with a fluke meter. You will need to verify the igniter is getting power. If the igniter tests good it might be a bad solenoid valve(there are two) or a grounding issue.
