Check you circuit breaker. Even if it doesn't look tripped reset it anyhow. This is a power interrupt code.

On dryers with the old mechanical timers you can turn the knob in either direction without harming the mechanism. On either type, even electronically controlled models with a problem like you described, there are a lot of possibilities. After confirming you have power to the appliance check the thermal safety fuse located on the heater housing.

SOURCE: WHIRLPOOL GAS DRYER MODEL LGQ9030PQ1 DRYER RUNS BUT NO HEAT

First, as a retired Fire Captain I must recommend turning off all running appliance before leaving the house or going to bed. I can tell you some real horror stories. Now, there are several parts that can keep the heat off or flame off and they all need to be checked with an OHM meter. It could be the ignitor, ingitor sensor, or gas solenoids. Get a service tech out to check which you need or if you have an OHM meter I can give more info on what to check.

When you moved the sensor wire on the moisture sensor may have fallen off.
Remove the front panel and locate the wire and the connection. It will be on the right side near the lint filter vent. If it is still connected your timer has gone bad.

If you can hear/see the motor running, but the drum does not spin, you probably have a broken or loose dryer belt. You can easily determine this by opening the top panel and looking at the belt. Just lift the lint sheet cover on the top of the dryer and and pull out the screen. With the cover still open, locate and remove the two screws. Once the screws are removed, the top panel will lift up. The belt should be seen wrapped around the drum. If the belt has broken or has slipped off the idler pulley, it may be fitting loosely around the drum, or lying on the cabinet bottom. If so, the following instructions explain how to access the interior and replace or reinstall the belt. Replacing the dryer belt on this model dryer involves the following steps:

1. UNPLUG the dryer and remove the lint screen.
2. With the lint screen door open, remove the two screws and lift the top panel.
3. Unplug the door switch conector plug and any ground wire that may be installed on the casing.
4. Locate the two screws that hold the front panel in place. There should be one screw on each side in the cabinet interior.
5. With the door shut, lean against the front panel and remove the two screws that hold it in place. Once the screws are removed, grasp the front panel at the top center and lift straight up to remove.

You should now have complete access to the dryer interior. If the belt is broken, this may cause the idler pulley to come loose. This is normal with no tension on the pulley to hold it in place. To install a new belt and re-install the pulley, follow these steps:

1. Loop the drive belt around the dryer drum with the groove side facing the drum. (Try to line the belt up with the wear marks already on the drum from the previous belt).

2. With the tensioner in your left hand, insert the clip end of the idler pulley into the grooves on the dryer bottom casing with the idler wheel pointing to your left. (The grooves are directly in front of the drive motor.)

3. While holding the tensioner in place, insert the belt UNDER the wheel with your right hand and pull it up and over the drive motor pulley.

If this does not explain it well enough, you can also verify by going to repairclinic.com. Click on the Repair Help link and look for the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the Special Features section on the next page. Look for Whirlpool and refer to diagram H.

Once you have the belt installed, re-install the dryer front panel by holding it as you did previously. Line up the holes on the inside bottom edge of the front panel with the small mounting cleats on the front edge of the side panels. This can be done by yourself, but an assist may make it easier. Once you have the front panel in place, lean against it to hold it in place and install the mounting screws. NOTE: Don't forget to reconnect the grounding wire and door switch connector plug. Without the door switch connected, the dryer will not run. Lower the top panel back in place and reinstall the two screws.

NOTE: Placing a piece of duct tape over the dryer vent chute will help safeguard against dropping anything down in the blower fan assembly. If you drop any screws down the chute, you will need to remove the dryer back panel to retrieve them.

If you still have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you. PS Appliancepartspros.com has some excellent exploded view diagrams of your dryer, along with parts listings that you cna use for reference as well.

We have a 10 year old Whirlpool Dryer Model #LGB6200KQ0 drum is turning but no heat. Could you please advise?


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.


check out this electric no heat tip...

Dryer screeching and grinding when running


Hi !
The drive belt has become old and hard.
Just change the drive belt and all will be well.

Please don't try to lubricate the belt as may be suggested by many as cheap quick fix.

The dryer rattles while running. I've cleaned out the blower, blower motor, etc. of all lint and so forth. The dryer heats fine and the drum turns smooth without any burning smells. I believe it is the...


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them. If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

Dryer beeping after being on about 5 minutes


If you purchased them in Feb of this year then the units are still under a full warranty. Maybe I am over simlifying this but you should call for service.

Error Code


I don't have a manual on the newest dryer like you have, but one of the models just older than yours has a F23 code that indicates a shorted thermistor.( temp sensor )
Since it is new you need to call for service. They will usually look up the code and tell you if it is anything you need to check but most likely you will need a repairman to repair it in warranty.
Post back if you have any questions.
