Question about Whirlpool LGR8648 Gas Dryer
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!

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

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.
