Whrilpool gas dryer

Our gas dryer runs off propane and has an adaptor to do so. However, once the tank ran dry the dryer stopped working. ( of Course) However, once the tank was refueled the dryer operates but does not get hot. I smell no gas and have checked all the electric connections. I see there is a very small veiwing hole up front but how do you access the burner area? I see no outside panel for cleaning or service? DH in Cabo

    the first thing i would check is to see the gas line for the drier is on then i would pull the gas line off the pressure regulator to see if when you ran out of propane trash stopped up the screen in the regulator ok if all that's cool then slightly crack the line and bleed the air ok if that don't work respond to me with model number and age of unit we will go from there ok we can fix it just hang with me oh on the regulator clean where the gas line comes in and is attached there is a catch screen there

Let it run. If nothing has changed, the dryer will go through several relight cycles and should eventually purge the lines of air.

My fire place elecric starter won't work after running out of propane


Most likely, you need to "bleed the line". The new propane needs to travel to your fireplace, but you have a huge air pocket in there now since it ran dry. It takes forever for the air to "bleed" out through the tiny orifice of a pilot light, especially if the distance from the fireplace to the tank is far.

A friend gave me one kitchenaid dryer , i don't understand. canI use eletric power and propane, or only propane. I don't have the propane pipes conections, can you please help me understand it?


Your propane dryer only dries with propanr. The electrical cord is for the motor that turns the dryer and for the controls. If you don't have gas piped into your house then your gas dryer is useless. Either get an electric dryer or pipe gas into the house. If you have Natural gas in your home, then you need to get a conversion kit to make your dryer run on Natural gas.

I would bet on a bad ignitor. An appliance parts store should help you thru the install. Should be about $20.00 for the part.

Bosch dryer not heating


make sure you try it a couple of times. gas takes a long time to travel to the pipes. no way to purge the lines.

check if there is propane in the new tank, check if the valve is open, check if the propane is at the hose going to the dryer already.

You should change it back to regular gas the problem is in pressure reg gas come to your home at much greater pressure then propane that's why it takes longer to dry the other thing is to keep your lint trap clean because it can affect drying once in while blow out lint hose as well
