If you are handy you can do it yourself. There should be an ignitor near the burner. It gets red hot when you turn on the dryer. There is a bi-metal switch "looking" at the ignitor, which will cut off the ignition and at the same time energize the gas valve(s). If this is not happening, either there is no power going to the burner assembly, or the ignitor is broke (split).

Dryer wont stay hot


Assuming you have removed the lower access panel (two or three scres all the way at the bottom of the lower front panel) to view the glow plug (ignitor), if you see the ignitor cycle on but the gas does not ignite after the machine initially heated in the beginning of the cycle you will want to replace your gas valve coils. They are the round black things mounted to the top of your gas valve.
This should solve your problem.
Good luck to you!!

Installed a new whirlpool gas dryer. no heat.


Well being "new" I'd not suspect many parts being defective other than the ignitor for the gas burner. You can view its operation behind the kick panel below the door. It should glow brightly when your dryer is calling for ignition. It may have been damaged if you had dropped it or very roughly handled your dryer wrestling it into position.
Otherwise i'd suspect that the gas line is still turned off, or a wire loose somewhere, or the heat setting in "air fluff"..
best of luck, and have fun,

Dryer blowing cold air


UNPLUG the dryer. This model you need to remove the two screws under the lint screen. Now use a flat blade screw drive and insert it in the gap between the top and the front panel and pry the top up. Now locate and remove the screws on the inside of the front panel in upper corners. The front should lift off. You will see the ignitor attached to the burner. You can try and replace the ignitor without removing the burner. Sometimes it is just as easy to remove the burner. Make sure the gas is shut off before removing the gas fitting on the gas valve. Be carefull and DO NOT touch the black part of the ignitor with your hand. It could ruin the ignitor with the oil on you hand.
If I can assist you further, please let me know.

Thanks

Whirlpool dryer LGR7646EQ3. Burner lights before pushing start.


The heat is regulated with a Klixon mounted next to the blower housing near the vent pipe so it can judge the temperature of the air coming out of the drum.Right next to it is a melting type fuse. If the dryer runs and gets too hot the fuse will melt.But the dryer will still run. So if the fuse is good(continuity) and the dryer control(cycle) thermostat is also good then you should have power going to the gas valve assembly when the machine is running unless the timer is in the no heat or wrinkle free/cool down mode. When the gas valve assembly is energized the flame sensor mounted outside the burner chamber detects the heat from the ignitor. When the heat is very intense then the sensor shuts down the ignitor and that frees up the power so that the coils can be fully energised and open the gas gates. The gas comes out and hits the red hot ignitor and you have ignition. It stays on for maybe 2 or 3 minutes or until the control thermostat is satisfied and shuts down power to the gas valve assembly.

MY DRYER BLOWS COLD AIR


Check your exhaust vent first to make sure it isn't clogged. Remove the vent at the dryer and run it for a moment to see if the air out is warm. If it's not, you've got to pull off the access panel to access the back of the unit. There should be a thermal fuse/cutout right near the burner tube. Ohm it out, replace if open. Next, you will have to try to run it without the back on to see if the ignitor is glowing hot. Also, check the gas valve for voltage when the unit is running (carefully) and see if the valve is getting voltage. If it is, replace it.

Gas dryer


hi

In a gas dryer, heat is provided by a gas heater that is controlled by an air shutter. The gas heater is generally the source of no-heat or drying problems. You can often correct such problems by adjusting the air shutter on the gas burner, which is located along the bottom of the dryer.

To adjust the shutter, take out the screws and remove the panel that covers the gas flame. Turn on the dryer so the flame is burning. If the flame has a deep blue color and you hear air whistling around the burner, the air/gas mixture is receiving too much air. If the flame has a yellow tip, the mixture is not receiving enough air. Turn the thumbscrew or loosen the two screws slightly to increase or decrease the flow of air to the burner. Keep turning until the flame is a light blue color, without any yellow, and the whistling stops.

Gas dryers use an electric ignition device rather than a pilot light to light the gas heater: An element becomes hot and glows like the filament in a lightbulb. Electric ignition systems are always sealed; you can't adjust or repair them. If an electric ignition device fails, call a professional service person for replacement.

Electric dryers have self-contained electric heating elements.
