    I have a Whirlpool gas dryer model #LGR 6620PQ0. I put it on automatic dry at night and it was still running the next morning but now there is no heat. It is only 2 years old.

    I checked and even bypassed the sensors.........heat is intermittent. possible burner/sensor problem?

    Same problem. Put it on auto dry and found it still running three hours later. Runs fine, it just doesn't heat up. Also only two years old.

Dryer wont heat

The problem is likely the thermal cut-off and/or the high-limit thermostat if the dryer runs but doesn't heat. Verify this by bypassing the thermal cut-off and the high-limit thermostat. Click on the link below for the detailed troubleshooting.

Troubleshooting Whirlpool and Whirlpool-Made Electric Dryers Running But Not Heating

Dryer runs...timer wont rotate and wont heat up

Good day,
Timer woun't run if there is n heat.
1. Check to see you are getting 230 volts to the machine. The motor uses only 115 so is not a good indication.
2. Remove back cover. You will need an ohm meter to test the components.
A. In the center bottom is a skinny white bakelite device held on with one screw. Remove one wire and check. It should check zero ohms. If not replace.
B. On the bottom right is a canister with the heating element terminals sticking out. They should test at 30 or less ohms. If not replace the heating element.
C. There are about 3 other limit thermostats in the area you're working. They should all check at zero ohms. Replace as needed.

Below is a tutorial on changing a heating element.

Whirlpool gas dryer makes a lot of noise

This sounds like the support rollers are either loose or worn out.

Turn off the power, shut off the gas, pull the unit away from the wall carefully, and remove the back of the dryer.

Look around the perimeter of the drum and you will see the rollers. There should be 3. If they wobble or the rubber on the rollers is worn down, they are bad and need replacing. While you're in there, inspect the motor, belt, and drive assembly to be sure it's solid.

An appliance shop or parts outlet can usually provide these parts for your unit.

Dryer runs but doesnt heat up

On a Whirlpool, it has been for me the coils are can be fixed by undoing the belt, 'popping' the top pnl up with a screwdriver, lean the front pnl down then move the drum forward to get to the coils. You MUST use a crimp type connector as these are nickle wire and won't solder easily. Saves a lot of money and will run forever. Definitly unplug it first! Duh!

Dryer model LER6620PQ0 dryer runs, but will not heat

If drier runs and doesnt heat, it can be one of two things. 1)The over temp. th/stat has activated. Possibly it can be reset. or 2)the actual element is faulty, which would need replacement.

Whirlpool LER5644A No heat and motor wont Turn

Replace the dryer wires.
Put your meter leads into the 4&5 slots.
Make sure the door switch is closed or jumpered.
Push the start button.
If you read no voltage the issue is with the wiring, the timer, or a relay.
