Question about Whirlpool LGR8648 Gas Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer runs, but no heat.

We just got a new Whirlpool duet washer and dryer. LP Gas. We bought the conversion kit and set it up. When it was turned on, it blew a breaker. Then was reset and blew breaker again. Has not done that since, but will not get hot or heat up. He seems to think there is no gas to the appliance. The shut off valve is turned on. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

SOURCE: Whirlpool Duet Dryer is scorching clothes

there is a sensor in the exhaust line in the dryer, near the motor. this tells the heating element to shut off when it gets to a certain temp, either during reg cycle or if the exhaust gets clogged, it is meant as a safety measure, but it sounds like yours is bad so the heating element never shuts off. it is not an expensive part and easy to replace

SOURCE: my whirlpool duet gas dryer (model ggw9200lw1) is taking too long

There is a rare chance that the gas supply is clogged. Dealing with gas pipes is dangerous business, don't fool with it unless you are experienced with plumbing. After checking a gas pipe, do a bubble check for leaks with dish soap from a sponge or sprayer. There are small filters and traps placed here and there in the plumbing of some units. They are similar to the ones on a washing machine hose, but smaller.

Gas but have only electric hookup


Sorry, but there is no conversion from gas to electric. (only natural gas to LP gas or back again) You will have to get an electric dryer or have a gas line run to the dryer.

Need to change from LP to propane. How do I get access


Gas to Propane requires a Propane Certified technician. These technicians are provided by the company that provides Propane that they will be using.
You may need to get a Propane conversion kit, for technician from the Propane company to install.
You can certainly double check on this...Hope this helps.

Can you covert convection ovens from propane


Determine the make and model of your dryer. You want to make sure you get the correct conversion kit for your dryer. Get one that is specifically for your dryer, not a universal kit.
Buy a conversion kit for your dryer. You will probably find one at a local hardware storemag-glass_10x10.gif .You can also find them online. It is probably advantageous to buy it locally because the dealer has experience installing these and can be a great asset. The kit will probably come in an envelope and will be marked something to the effect of “Conversion Kit Nat. Gas to L.P. Gas for XXXX series dryers”.

1)Shut off the gas supply to the dryer and make sure the power cord is unplugged.
2)Access the gas controls assembly in the dryer. This will be different for different brands of dryers. The instructions with the conversion kit should tell you exactly how to do this for your dryer.
3)Turn on the gas supply and check for leaks using a liquid soap solution and / or a leak tester.
4)Activate the dryer gas valve. Check to make sure the manifold pressure is correct and if not, adjust the regulator setting. Again, check for leaks.
5)Adjust the main burner flame as directed in the instructions with your gas conversion kit.
