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.

Thanks!!!

Isn't heating up. takes forever to dry,


Disconnect the complete exhaust vent tubing and clean it out thorourghly. Then it will dry. There is a moister sensor in your dryer and when the lint builds up inside the vent tubing the sensor shuts off the burner to prevent fires from starting

Dryer blows cool, not hot, air


Clean the burner exhaust and intake vents of dust and lint. Make sure the gas is turned on to the machine. Watch the burner while trying to dry clothes--the igniter should turn red, then the main valve should open to start the burner. If the plate turns red, but no fire, the control valve assembly may need to be replaced. Is the unit under warranty? If so, you may need to take advantage. Hope this helps!

Dryer is slow dryng takes two cycles compared to regular dryer


As the model number you provided indicates this is a gas dryer, you need to open up the access panel, above the washer compartment, to clean out the dryer compartment.

It is likely that either the gas burner components have been covered in lint and dust and are getting shut off sooner than they should because of overheating of the thermocouple safety device, etc.

First, make sure that the power is turned off to the washer/dryer unit and turn off the gas supply valve, so you don't have any issues with getting a electric shock or getting a gas leak/build up.

Once you've done that, you can remove the two (2) access screws that will let you get into the lower dryer compartment where the gas burner and control devices are located (this is the panel just above the washer lid, the angled section).

Now vaccum out all the lint and dust buildup you can see and check that everything is free of dust and lint inside this area. Pay special attention to the gas burner and gas inlet orifices, as anything in there can and will cause the dryer to shut off and thus, not operate properly in getting your clothes dry in a normal drying cycle.

Also, check to see that the dryness sensors inside the dryer drum (silver bars up near the top left or right of the dryer drum) are clean and don't have any residue or buildup on them. This can also cause the dryer to register erraticly when using the automatic drying cycles versus the timed drying cycle. Use a good glass cleaner and wipe these sensors with a clean cloth rubbing them briskly to remove any residue or contaminent that might be deposited on the sensors.

Now completely clean out the exhaust vent all the way from the dryer to the outside location of the vent. Having any blockage of the vent can and will cause the thermal overload protective device to function and turn off the gas burner that provides the heat to dry your clothes. So be absolutely certain that the entire vent exhaust is clean and free of any lint buildup from the dryer all the way to the outside vent (yes I mean't to repeat that!) You'll have to remove the outside vent grate/cover to check for any buildup/obstructions there.

Now you can run a load to see if you've gotten the problem solved, if not, it could be a control module, but 80% of the time, it is nothing more than a "housekeeping" issue that causes loads not to completely dry on the first cycle. So please do some cleaning and checking and you should be back getting your clothes dry on the first cycle!

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

I dont' think it is drying my clothes. It's not getting hot?


gas or electric? if electric then probably either plugged exhaust hose or bad element....if gas then probably either plugged exhaust hose or temperature shut off switch or 1 0r both magnets on the gas valve,listen for the burners to ignite,if the burner shuts off afer 1 minute of running then double check the exhaust hose,the burner should run lots longer if working right.

Replace both coils on the burner valve . After heating up , they will not open to let gas thru again until cooled down for a short period of time . With no heat , timer will not cut off unless set for timed dry .

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 maytag.com 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.

thanks,

joyce
