Question about Whirlpool LGQ9858PG Gas Dryer

1 Answer

Gas dryer (similar machine) gets hot and shuts off burner

The problem is intermittent and the clothes will not completely dry. Burner shuts off pre-maturely. I will open it up and see if the lint has built up too much.

Gas dryer not heating all the time

Hi there,

Well if your dryer tumbles, but there is no heat then you may please check out the following -
1. First of all you can check out for proper air flow - Check the vent for proper air flow by placing your hand over the exterior vent while the dryer is running. You should feel a strong flow of air. If not then check the lint trap. It is located either on top of the dryer or possibly just inside the door. Remove any lint that has built up in the lint trap. Cleaning the lint trap should be done regularly, even as often as after every load. Do not operate the dryer without a lint trap in place.
2. Secondly you can check out the Ignitor - gas dryer blows air through a burner assembly to heat the air. The burner assembly consists essentially of a gas valve, ignitor and a flame sensor. If any part of the burner assembly malfunctions, the result will be low or no heat and slow drying of the clothes. Post comments for further help or information.....

Good Luck!!
Thanks for using FixYa!!

Gas Dryer Model # WGD5821SW0 The dryer does not get hot. We have shut of the breaker and turned it back on after 3 minutes as suggested. Help I have 6 loads of laundry waiting for my attention.

The heat is supplied from the gas burner. 1- If the ignitor is not on because the filament is broken then the burner is not working. 2- If the ignitor is working but the thermal sensor is broken then the gas valve is not open to sustain the flame in the burner so there will be no heat. Need to check these by accessing the back panel. Good luck

Dryer runs, heats for 8 to 12 minutes, cycles off burner for approx 20 min. Then follows same process. Clothes are basically "air drying".

if it is a gas dryer check your vents there is an obstruction some where. to test this you can disconnect the vent from yhe dryer and tyr drying a load.

LG DLG3788W Gas Dryer: dry cycle takes too long. It doesn't seem to get very warm at all. The lint trap is clean and the vent pipe as well.

Try vacuuming the burner exhaust and intake pipes of their lint collection. If these passages are partially plugged, the burner will short-cycle and not provide proper heat. Try washing the lint filter in hot water and detergent to remove fabric softener deposits. Hope this helps.

I have a frigidaire gallery heavy duty dryer, gas burning. It has heated/dried my laundry less and less, and now does not seen to heat up at all. What part do I need to replace?

You may have aproblem withthe venting. Make sure the the fan can blow freely through and out the vent. If this gets parially blocked it cuts down the air flow and will make the dryer run too hot and keep the burner off. The other thing taht it could be is the temperature sensor that turns the gas burner on and off. Sometimes they will go bad and not let the burner stay on long enough to heat properly.

Gas dryer heats fine but shuts down before the drying cycle is over taking longer to dry clothes. Lint trap and exhaust tube cleaned out.

You are going to most likely need a vent cleaning. The dryer is getting too hot and shutting off because it is not exhausting good.

Matag NeptuneDryer MD5500AWW - intermittent heat - not drying

this is joyce
It is as you guessed your sensor. it is usually located in door but some models are in back of machine on inside, go online download document papers go to put in model# and then download your model # and it will show you where your sensor is located, it should be simple to replace. I had the same problem with my dryer.
I am glad you said you checked the dryer lines because if these get clogged up they will cause the dryer not to dry the clothes correctley. very smart....if you need me to help let me know.
