You will need to change fuel orifice and possibly adjust air intake valve. Recommended to have a pro do it but if you can find original instructions, they should have step by step instructions. Also there should be an orifice kit with instructions or taped to drier housing in the back. Depending on how old the unit is and how many times it has been used the orifice may be lost.

I have a whirlpool dryer as propane and needed it converted to gas. I have the orifce -gas kit which consist of two parts. Which part do I use? Is it the one which screws in and mist hole is on the other end, or the other one it comes with that has the mist hole on the other side.

The one i placed was the later ( one with mist hole on the side)

Propane to nat. gas dryer


Good day,
Yes. Two reasons. The orifice that the gas comes out is a different size, and the regulator that determines gas pressure is disabled when using Propane, since propane has the regulator on the tank.

If you are not 100% sure what your doing, call a qualified company to perform the conversion. Isn't worth the gamble.
Propane is, unlike natural gas, heavier than air. It can pool in a low spot then ............

I have a Whirlpool gas dryer. I have gone from a natural gas hook-up to propane. Is there anything I need to do different for that natural gas installation?


You will need to change the gas discharge jets on the burner so that the burner gets the proper mixture of gas and air. Propane accessory stores should be able to furnish a conversion kit.
