Dryer not getting hot / washer won't run unless dryer on.


If these are separate units, you might have an electrical wiring problem in your house or apartment. If one unit (washer with dryer above), check to make sure the power cord is firmly attached to the terminals. Many other possible causes, too.

The dryer makes a scraping noise when it has a full wet load. if you lighten the load by about half the noise goes away, except when it first starts up.

Unexpectedly stops


Lighten the loads.
Clean the lint from around and in the motor.
Replace the belt.
Check the rear drum support and front support guides.
If that does not correct the problem you have a bad motor.

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.

Strong ozone-like burning smell


Sounds to me like the motherboard inside the unit is on it's way to thermal overload. This is a common problem with this particular model. You'll smell electronics burning and one day it'll quit altogether with a burst of smoke. I had this happen to me and I traced the problem back to a faulty triac (transistor-like device) that overheated and caused the circuit board and wiring harness to burn up from excessive current draw. I repaired my motherboard with a new triac ($6) and rewired the harnesses. A cooling fan on the heatsink of the board would solve this problem.
