Question about Whirlpool LGQ8000JQ Gas Dryer
There is a device called a thermal fuse that if blown will not allow the heat to begin.
The thermal fuse is located behind the back panel just to the left of the exhaust opening. It is a rectangular white piece with 2 wires, usually blue going to it. You can test it with an ohm meter, it should read 0 ohms if good.
There is also a high limit thermostat behind the back panel on the far right, it should read the same (0 ohms) if good. These thermal switches will go out usually because of restricted air flow, either a plugged vent pipe from the dryer to outside or a really dirty lint filter.
Let me know if you have questions or need more details.
