Question about Whirlpool GGQ8831L Gas Dryer

1 Answer

The burner in the dryer will not stay on.

The dryer will operate for only a few moments, but then the burner will turn off immediately afterwards. I do not understand what part needs to be replaced.

Thanks-

Most common cause is poor airflow. Make sure your ductwork is clear, and that you have good strong airflow at the exhaust point outside.
If that doesn't help, it may be the gas coils that need replaced....not a terribly expensive part, you can usually get the pair of coils together.

Dryer goes on, and will start burner but will not reach operating temp. Shuts burner off almost immediately. Will start burner again in cycle but then shuts off before it reaches operating temp.


What brand? You could have a clogged vent, or a stretched out belt, allowing too much heat inside the drum, triggering a safety switch.

Dryer won't stay running. It will start, run 10-15 seconds, then shut off. I can restart it immediately but get the same results.


i would check the door switch. it may be worn just enough that the vibration of the dryer opens the circuit for just a moment. then check for other loose connections. the fact that you can restart immediately usually indicates a momentary break in the circuit. a temperature switch usually takes a short time to reset. while it's still running, try rattling various switches or smack the door to see if it shuts off. (just a couple of simple ideas to start with).
good luck....jay

Try to turn on but it wont stay on


If that dryer has a 4 wire start switch which simply twists a quarter turn to get off then replace it.

GGW9200 Dryer Does Not Dry. Status Light goes immediately to Wet


if the heat is only staying on for a few seconds and cutting out the vent line could be clogged,pull out the dryer,remove the vent line from the back and start it,if the heat stays on the vent is blocked,this is the easiest thing to start with,if the vent is clogged you can try a leaf blower and blow the lint out of the vent line
