Question about Whirlpool LGB6300 Gas Dryer
If the motor is running you need to determine if the glow ignitor is coming on.
On the front of the dryer in the lower left corner is a small plastic square, pry this square piece off.
Start the dryer in a heat cycle and watch through the window.
- If the ignitor glows for a while then shuts off and no flame appears the problem is the gas valve coils.
- If the ignitor glows and does not stop glowing the problem is the radiant sensor
- If the ignitor does not glow and you hear a 'clunk' every few minutes from the area close to the small window you are looking into then the ignitor is bad.
- If there is no glow and no clunk the problem is most likely the thermal fuse or thermal cut off.
- the thermal cut off trips if you have a venting problem and there is inadequate air flow
Sorry this is so lengthy, but there is a lot that can cause the symptoms you described.
