Question about Whirlpool Dryers
All gas dryers have a gas module. The older models (very old) have a pilot light and the new ones have what is called a GLOW PLUG and it is made out of ceramic. If this glow plug is in any way broken, you will not have any heat. The GLOW PLUG is what comes on when you first turn the dryer on and it GLOWS until the gas module actually spits out a small amount of gas and an internal combustion occurs and the flames come on full power and this is what dries your clothes. If the GLOW PLUG is fine, then the gas module could be bad. ALSO, Always check for burnt wires and check any thermostats or fuses internally in the unit.
