Question about Whirlpool Dryers
Wow that a nice gas dryer. It features electronic drying. I would make sure the sensors are clean. They get a film of dryer sheet goop on them and the sensing board cannot read dampness and shuts down the dryer thinking the cloths are dry. So check that first. Your thermostat control has 4 wires. 2 of the smaller wires warm a small heater to change the rate of time the thermosdisc opens. Newer models have a thermister. Next to it is a thermal disc. It kills power to the gas assembly but does not kill the motor. If it is open then their won't be any heat. The next thing to check for continuity is the flame sensor. It must have continuity. It powers up lgq8611lw0 dryer spins but no heat - 6c68f9d.jpg. If either of these are open( no continuity) then you won't have no heat. When the control is cool it powers the gas assembly. The flame sensor and ignitor kick in. The solenoids cannot kick in because the ignitor is on. When the temp gets hot enough it bends a bi-metal inside the flame sensor and opens the circuit to the ignitor. With the flame sensor and ignitor out of the circuit the surge of power can now zap those solenoids, gas comes out hitting the ignitor, and whooosh you have flames. It only take a minute or 2 of flames to warm the dryer to 160f. Then the control shuts down the operation. So what can go wrong? If the limit is blown or the control is blown then no power can get to the gas assembly. If either the flame sensor or ignitor is bad you won't get heat finally if the heat works a littlgq8611lw0 dryer spins but no heat - 83a012d.jpgno more, then replace those solenoids. They tend to fail when hot and work when cold. More Here
