How do I locate coils

The dryer is a whirlpool model LGR8648PWO. The coils burned out about tywo years ago, and now the same thing is happening again. I do not want to pay someone for a five minute repair. WHERE ARE THE COILS LOCATED? How do I remove them once I find them?

I have a whirlpool LGR8648pwo. Runs not heat and timer doesnt move. I found a 4 prong sensor in the back of the unit. 2 prongs have continuity and the other 2 dont. Is that bad.


If no heat at all i suspect this part HERE. This is the fuse. It kills power to the gas assembly if junk gets into the filter housing and cause an overheat condition. On electric models this same fuse kills the whole dryer. On gas models it just kills the gas. If that is good the next thing to check is the flame detection sensor mounted out side of the burner chamber. It's job is to power up the ignitor. If it is open no power can get to the ignitor. If it is good then the next thing to check is the ignitor. If the ignitor is good AND you are getting power from that control klixon you mentioned with the 4 wires on it AND you can get a little heat at first but then none at all them coils need to be replaced. Here is my home video:

What was your solution? I was thinking one or more of the multiple coils in the element could be burned out but not the entire thing I've see that happen before. Glad you got it fixed!

Whirlpool model GGQ8858EQ1 gas dryer starts, gets flame and begins heating. then after a short while flame shuts off and i hear a chattering noise somewhere near the bottom of dryer. It lasts for about...


The problem is your gas valve solenoids (coils). There are usually two of them mounted on the burner assembly. One is the MAIN coil, the other is the SECONDARY coil. It is recommended that you replace BOTH of them at the same time. Replacements can be purchased on line at appliancepartspros.com. Just type in the model number you provided and look under the "Burner Assembly" section for items 13 and 14. I hope this helps you.
