My whirlpool gas dryer will cont condinually stay hot. I have checked the vents. I have completely disconnected the dryer vent. The gas will turn on and fire will ignite and stay lit for about 1 minute and then turn off for 5-10 minutes and then fire up again for another minute. It is taking 2 hours to dry a load of laundry. Any suggestions?

If your machine is taking that long to dry. You either have a clogged vent to the outside or your gas valve coils are bad. You can check to see if it is your vent by disconnecting it for one cycle. If the unit drys in time then clean your vent. Click Here to see what a clogged vent can do. Click here to see gas valve coils.
Im assuming that you have a gas dryer since you said you replaced the glow plug (igniter). So your problem is most likely with lint in the vent hose. Try taking it off and shaking out all the loose lint. If thats not it you could have a gas flow problem. Check your connections for leaks or crimps in and metal hosing.
I would suggest the coils on the gas valve . Also check the vent to make sure good air flow is getting out of the dryer . Try disconnecting the vent hose and drying a load to determine if maybe the vent is the problem .
Hi I have the same problem
Bypassed the hi limit switch and it runs fine
service teck replaced board,thermistor, all vents,gas coils , flame sensor and glo coil andf all with no luck. Unless it is bypassed thed ryer will only stay on 5 to 6 seconds on gas cycle
If i plug my old dryer in and hock up to gas and vent it works fine
So im using my old dryer and this peice of **** is sitting beside it as Im not going to run this without the safety thermostat
If you find out please let me know
Did this tech do some wash to the dryer and feel that there was no heat? He was not a good tech
Sometimes this can happen when the vent line is clogged.
1. Check if the lint filter is full and needs to be cleaned. Try this first. 2. Then check if the outside screen covering the exhaust vent if this is even half blocked with lint there will be no heat! This screen is to keep small animals out! Try checking this and if it is clogged or the spring loaded door is stuck closed. Try to clean the lint out of the corners of the flap door, and or remove the screen permanently! NO ANIMALS LIKE TO GET BURNT,IT'S HOT IN THAT TUBE! They sense this and stay clear. It is 2 years that mine is off and all is fine.
