There are two stats on the heater. one is a running stat that cycles to give required heat. The other is an overheat stat that does not reset. Check these for continuity (use a battery , flashlight bulb and wire for circuit test) If these are in circuit and okay, the timer is faulty and would be costly to replace.

Where is the air intake on an electric cloth dryer


This link is to a video about cleaning a blower box lint trap housing of a Whirlpool , Frigidaire or Kenmore dryer..
There is a good view of the back of this dryer. Other than the controls and trim all of these models and makes are nearly identical.
As viewed from the back the air intake is at the lower right. The air enters the bottom of the heater flows through the heater coils into the dryer drum out of the dryer drum into the lint filter blower box into the blower and is expelled out into the dryer vent pipe.
There are other makes that may be different. On some LG dryers the blower is located at the front bottom left of the machine.
There are lots of help videos on youtube.

My LG front loading dryer doesn't dry well


Check the exhaust vent when running and be sure there is a good flow of air. You may have to clean the exhaust pipes all the way through. Dryers require a good flow of air for proper operation.

Why does dryer heat and tumble,but doesn't blow air


No air flow is due to a restriction due to lint build up. Pull the lint filter and look closely at it. Sometimes the filter gets a residue from dryer softener sheets that can cause lint to stick to the screen and block air flow. To remove wash it with a mild detergent and use a gentle brush on it.

If that is clear then the restriction is further inside the dryer or in the vent pipe between the dryer and wall or the pipe that goes from the wall to the outside. You may have to take off the vent hose and turn the dryer on to see if air blows out the back of the dryer for a few seconds. If air blows there then the problem is in the house venting and you need to have that cleaned.

Whirlpool gas dryer LGR6636PWO heats for appro. 5 minutes & quits heating but still runs.


First check the exhaust vent and connecting vent material for a clog. If vent is OK,replace the gas valve coils.

Dryer works but doesn't get clothes dry. They're


Sounds like inadequate air flow through the machine. In order for the any dryer to function air is forced through the machine and outside. If the discharge is blocked or obstructed in any way the moist air will not be removed, and the clothes will not dry.

Disconnect dryer from wall and clean the wall outlet and and dryer discharge pipe.

Also, if you are trying to force air higher than 6 feet up the wall from a basement you will need a booster fan on the piping.

I have whirlpool dryer that the heat seems to kick on and off it is gas dryer


If heats for a few minutes then cuts off (heat) , then the 2 coils on the burner valve are probably bad . OR check the vent hose to the outside for good air flow . Sometimes , a dryer is pushed too far back , and it kinks the vent hose . If coils are bad , when dryer cools down , then restarting , cool coils will heat again for a few minutes , then stop heating till they cool off again .

My dryer will not heat and timer works until the cooling stage


It's either the timer or insufficient air flow. check your vents to see if sufficient air is coming out.
