My whirlpool gas dryer model # LGN2000JQ2 works and heats up but after a few minutes stops blowing heat, just cold air

Most common issue are the coils on the gas valve. On front part of burner. Easy to install and not expensive. Could be cycling thermostat, but I would lean toward the coils. First thing to always check is your vent. The chute that your lint screen goes into sometimes fills up and restricts air flow. Causing unit to short cycle.

Whirlpool LGN2000JQ2 Dryer will initially light and reach temp normaly, then it will not relight just continue tumbling. Shut off dryer wait a few minutes and restart

I am assuming that it is a gas dryer even though it shows it is an electric. This is a good website

Whirlpool Model LGN2000KQ0 ignighter glows, flame turns on for a few minutes then it goes out and the ignighter never glows again nor does the flame return

The problem is the dryer coils have failed. They tend to fail as they heat up. They are inexpensive and easy to replace. Here is a link that should help troubleshooting a gas dryer

My problem is when i start my dryer it ignights and runs till it heats up and the the flame goes out till it cools off and then ignights and so on

Hi- Sound like the high temp. thermostat is tripping. You may try running it without the vent attached and see if it will run that way. I have had this happen when the vent is too obstructed and the heat cant get out fast enough. Otherwise have someone out to look at it. Hope that helps a little.

Model DLE2516W, will not heat up. lint catcher is clean, but unit only puts out cool air. it is only 2 years old.

check the pipe that goes outside make sure it is clean also. if so there should be a door or panel one the bottom of the dryer remove and see if this area is clean also, if so with the panel off start the dryer and see if the ignighter glows red . the ignighter mast reach a certian glow before the gas valve will open this could be the problem. let me know how this goes

Gas dryer tumbles no heat.
