Question about Whirlpool LGV4634JQ Gas Dryer

Whirlpool gas dryer

My Whirlpool gas dryer is starting up on its own. I went down and made sure that it was set in the off position thinking that I may have inadvertently turned it on. I walked away and later it started itself again. It has been doing this all day now. Thanks Chris

Gas drier Whirlpool LGR5634LQ0 drum turns, no heat. Turn off and restart, heats for a while then no heat for drying. Lint is clear, etc... Gas valve is in on position. Not sure what to do next. Check...


most gas dryers will have a problem with the 2 coils on top of the valve.
when these coils are weak or going bad, it will heat for a short while then no heat at all.
if you let the unit set for an hour or 2, it will heat again for a short peroid.
the coils are easy to replace, but do get both of them.

Installed a new whirlpool gas dryer. no heat.


Well being "new" I'd not suspect many parts being defective other than the ignitor for the gas burner. You can view its operation behind the kick panel below the door. It should glow brightly when your dryer is calling for ignition. It may have been damaged if you had dropped it or very roughly handled your dryer wrestling it into position.
Otherwise i'd suspect that the gas line is still turned off, or a wire loose somewhere, or the heat setting in "air fluff"..
best of luck, and have fun,
ttfn

I have a Whirlpool gas dryer LGQ7030K..the dryer does not turn on when start button is pushed.


If you open your dryer and the inside light isn't on - double check your breakers.

Also make sure the timer knob is set properly to a setting with minutes left.

I have a whirlpool gold ultimate care II heavy duty gas dryer. When the dial is set on any setting you can hear the motor ticking. When I push the start button I get nothing. Any ideas???


You are probably hearing the timer count down, which means the timer is working right. This sounds more like your start switch is out. If you email or callus with your model number, we'll be sure to get the right parts out to you rigth away so you can get this repaired. We look forward to hearing back from you soon. Hope this answers your question.

Dryer flame starts for a few min then goes out


When it goes off will it restart immediately or do you need to allow some cool down time?

If cool down time is needed it's likely the coil kit which is part number 279834 for your model.

Other possibilities are air flow too slow causing a "lazy" flame which shuts off due to hitting safety thermostat sitting on top of the flame tunnel.

Whirlpool gas dryer motor wont turn over


If the drum is not turning, then the belt may have broken and could be (because of the noise I think your describing, partially wrapped around the motor pulley.

Modern gas dryers do not have standing pilot lights. They are electronic ignition.

Chances are, you solve the belt problem, you'll solve the (I guess your having) heat problem.

Please respond with more detail of the problems you are having, and advise if the belt is broken.

Whirlpool Dryer stopped mid cycle and won't start again


This sounds as if the internal fuse has blown. I am assuming you have checked the breakers as well. The starter switch might be bad.
