If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.

Here is the rest of this tip about Dryer Maintenance

Gas dryer/ has just started taking long time to dry each load needing multible cycles of time. Is generating some heat, vent is clean, trap iis clean. What is keeping the dryer from heating up?


I suspect your gas valve coils are going out and need to be replaced. They can work when first used but later in the cycle one of them quits.

Dryer making clicking noise when running. Heat no longer working. Gets "stuck" in a cycle continues running and dial not moving.


Based on symptoms, this is a gas dryer. The clicking that you hear is the solenoid opening so that gas can flow and be lit. Except that gas isn't flowing, or the igniter is burned out (if or pilot is blown out if so equipped).

It is normal for the dial not to move unless it is in a timed dry mode (like air or freshen mode) because the moisture level of the clothes is not changing.

Whirlpool Dryer LGQ9508PW0 flame comes on and shuts off after 30 seconds.


this might actually be normal, whats the complaint??? to long to dry clothes maybe 2-3 cycles??? would be a common complaint. in which id check to make sure vent is not clogged anywhere, especially where exiting the home if he venting is ok id replace the coils atop the gas valve, possible and common for that matter that after running for 20-30 min they do not reopen and dont allow flem to reignite... part number 279834 retails for about $20 easy enough repair.... reason for flame to go on and turn off after only 30 secs is that in an empty dryer 30 secs of heat may be enough to satisfy the thermostat, that's alot of heat for an empty dryer, it would remain on for longer with a load of wet clothes absorbing the heat

Dryer will sometimes start to heat, then stops heating altogether.


There are always more parts to replace. From the sounds of it though, it sounds like one of your gas coils are going out. Normal gas dryer opperation is your unit will heat up, cool down, heat up, cool down, etc thorugh the course of the cycle. Usually when one of your coils are going out, it sticks after the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd cycle and the gas will no longer come out. So the cycle will continue just without heat. Another less likely possibility is that you have a restriction in your ventalation causing one of your heat safeties to open and not let the machine heat for most of the cycle. This can generally be checked just by placing your hand under the vent hood outside where your dryer vents to. You should feel air pressure on your hand while the unit is running. If there is not pressure or you are hearinf some whisling noise, it might be restricted in which case you'll need to have your vents cleaned/ repaired. Now since you are going through an extended warranty company, here's a couple other thoughts. They contract companies to provide service to thier customers. Do they have another authorized company in your area that can look at it? Do they have any kind of lemon or excessive repair policy? Many companies will replace a unit after so many repairs in a given time frame.

Dryer runs-no heat


I had a problem once with a gas dryer that would come on, the pilot would glow and the flame would run on a shortend cycle. The coil that opens the gas valve had a short circuit that would only short out when it heated up. It would drive me crazy since it appeared to be working. The short cycle time the first time, and then maybe not at all once it was warm gave me mixed signals.
