Question about Whirlpool LGV4634JQ Gas Dryer
I replaced the igniter as it was not glowing when stated. Still nothing.
Could it be thermal fuse? Gas sensor? I do not want to start replacing everything as the dryer is 8 years old.
The ignitor is glowing??? and still no ignition?? if thats the case the thermostats are good, i would focus on the coils located on top of the vavle 279834, about 20 bucks. obvioulsy first check you do inded have gas coming into the unit

I just fixed my dryer, thus saving my marriage! It was definitely the gas valve coils. A couple of pointers I learned along the way: 1. Most dryer panels, once removed, have VERY sharp edges. Most of my cuts (4, the last time I counted) will heal within a few days.
2. The coils are located in the FRONT of the dryer. If you remove the rear panel, as I did, you can also clean an amazing amount of lint and toothpicks and bobby pins and whatever..
3. When the job is all finished, and you think you've solved the problem, and the dryer still does not heat - do not forget (as I did for a short time) to turn the gas back ON. It really helps!
