Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
Hello....I have a Duet gas dryer...two years old.....No problems till today...now I have no heat when I run it. I checked the gas line and the exhaust and both are working. I unplugged it for 20 minutes to see if there was some type of re-start on it. When I turn it on, I don't hear anything fire or attempt to fire. Is there a thermocoupler type pilot? Any suggestions?
Remove the bottom cover (2 screws), and set it off to the side. Look into the right side (as you are looking at it) of the now uncovered dryer compartment. Here you will see a rather large tube. Behind this tube, you will see a flat ceramic piece (with several rounded edges at one side) with wires going to it. That is the igniter. Turn the dryer on & see if this thingy glows red-orange HOT. If not, remove it and look at the metallic portion. If any of the metal strips are cracked, the igniter is bad. Purchase a new one at your local appliance supply and bolt the new one back in. When the dryer is calling for heat, the igniter glows red hot, and ignites the gas. If it does not glow, the flame sensor is not satisfied and there will be no flame/no heat. I just replaced mine 2 weeks ago. Easy fix.

The thermal fuse is wired in
series with the gas valve. If the thermal fuse
opens, 91°C (196°F), power to the valve is
turned off. A centrifugal switch on the motor
also opens the heater circuit.
Once the thermal fuse has opened, it will not
reset, and must be replaced. Check for a failed
thermistor and or air restrictions. Here is a duet service manual
These coils can go out:
Usually if the dryer heats a little but quits it is these. You said you have no heat so it must be the duct fuse shown above.

There is a thermal fuse located behind lower panel, then behind hte vent housing 2 side by side, black one thermistor(not your problem), whote one is thermal fuse. if it checks good for continuity then its good but most likely source, if needed i would the remove plugh leading to ignitor and insert meter leads ot dryer end turn on dryer listne for click and watch for 110v, if you got power you got a bad ignitor
