Question about Whirlpool LGR8648L Gas Dryer

Hi Fixya: My son ran a load of his clothes in our washer & dryer. He left a ball pint pen in his jeans, which made blue marks inside of the drum. How can the ink marks be safely removed without damaging the finish ? Please advise, Jon

My dryer sounds like there are metal balls rolling around inside when clothes are drying


Sounds like the rollers are worn out. If they are fine then see if the dryer has glides on the drum.

Hi and welcome to fixya,

This problem can be caused by poor air circulation inside. In order to efficiently remove lint from clothes, load the dryer 1/2 of its drum capacity. It also helps putting fabric conditioner sheets to prevent clothes from charging static electricity which can attract lint..

Hope this helps,

The Dryer is Dead. It will not make a sound when the start button is pushed


Pull the dryer out away from the wall. Unhook the vent from the dryer completely. Do not put anything over the dryer exhaust on the back of the dryer. Do a normal load with the vent unhooked. If it dries better or OK like this then the problem is in the dryer venting. Like a blocked vent pipe or a smashed or restricted vent hose.
If the vent doesn't make a difference, then check the blower wheel for excessive lint build up, check that there isn't anything stuck to the air intake baffle inside the drum, (i.e. the screen on the back wall of the dryer when looking into the drum). Check the lint filter chute for blockage. Check that the heating element isn't shorted to ground. Check the exhaust temperature of the dryer. A meat or pocket thermometer can be used for this. It should cycle approx between 120 degrees and 160 degrees ( without clothes ). Check that the drum seals are not worn out.
Be careful in using laundry products not to spill them on the exterior surface of any washer or dryer. Wipe up any spills promptly with a damp soft cloth or paper towel. Most exteriors are painted synthetic enamel, which can be damaged or removed by chlorine bleach, ammonia, solvents or other chemicals often used in laundering and stain removal. Do not use dryer top as a work-top for stain removal unless it is protected by a heavy plastic cover, or for rust removal. Use the sink instead and follow remover product label directions exactly, including flushing the sink with cold water.
Do not spray per-wash stain removers on clothing on top of the dryer unless the top is protected completely; this may corrode plastic control parts as well as paint.
Clean lint filter after each load for efficient drying. If the load is loaded with lint, clean the filter part-way through the drying cycle also. Clean out the exhaust vent system at least once a year, and be sure it is not clogged at any time. NEVER vent a dryer into the house; vent to the outside
If crayon gets into the dryer and melts onto the drum, remove as much as possible with non-flammable household cleaner. (READ LABEL TO BE SURE.) A flammable cleaner could cause a fire in the dryer. Apply cleaner to a sponge or cloth and the wipe interior. Do NOT spray or pour on the interior; it might get down inside the dryer. Wipe off with rags or paper towels. Then tumble old rags to remove any residue left, until no more comes off. A colored stain may remain on the drum.
If a drum is spotted by starched or tinted articles, wipe the interior with a cloth moistened with a diluted bleach solution. Use a sponge or clean cloth, dipped in suds, to remove the bleach solution from the drum. Rinse well and dry.
If the dryer is used to dry laundered clothing, such as children snow pants between outings, wipe the drum with suds and rinse. This will remove any dirt before clean laundry is placed into the machine.
Wipe the door opening occasionally. Clean the exterior with suds and rinse. To protect the finish, polish with an appliance wax.
A case of white clothes coming out of a dryer blue: New jeans had been washed and then dried in that dryer just before. Sometimes dye will come off new blue jeans and dry on the inside of the dryer drum, and then transfer to the next batch of wet clothes put inside. It's good to check the dryer drum after a load of brand new jeans. If it is dye coated, clean the inside with soapy water until no color comes off on the cleaning cloth. Wipe off all soapy residue with a clean wet cloth.
Check with your state or city to see if you need a permit to work on your gas dryer before doing any repairs. The first thing you need to do when your GE-HP gas dryer is not heating, is to check to see if your dryer ignite is glowing or not.
please comment on these solution by staying now helpful


If the ignite glows, the problem could be the gas valve, the coils or the gas supply to the dryer.
If the ignite doesn't glow, then you need to check the following parts.

The igniter:
The igniter is a resistor made of ceramic and other materials that will get red hot when electricity passes through it.
The job of the igniter is to open the contacts on the flame sensor and ignite the gas. A bad igniter could be the reason why your GE-HP gas dryer is not heating.

The flame sensor:
The flame sensor is located on the combustion chamber, the job of the flame sensor is to open the gas valve and shut off the igniter. A bad flame sensor will cause the dryer not to heat.

The timer:
The timer is a distribution center where the electricity is directed to the different electric parts in the dryer.

The mayor problem you will find inside of the timer are burnt contacts.
When the contacts are burnt, there is no way for the electricity to reach the intended parts. Contact B & A have to be close in order for the electricity to travel to the temperature switch.

The temperature switch:
This switch is another distribution control. It take electricity from the timer and send it to the selected parts on the thermostats. If your GE-HP dryer is not heating, this is one of the parts you need to check.

The thermostats:
There are three different thermostats in most dryers. From the temperature switch electricity has to pass trough the safety thermo left, the drum outlet thermostat, the control inlet thermostat, and to the heating elements.
A bad thermostat could be the reason why your GE-HP gas dryer is not heating.

The motor switch:
The motor switch has two contacts that allows the heating elements to be turned on, only when the motor is running..

most probably the dryer is causing this.  the felt that holds the drum in alignment on the front panel is worn or has come loose allowing a gap to form between drum and front and so clothes can become wedged in the and taken for a spin around the drum and causing marks.

It's not really BURN marks - it is the adhesive used to affix the felt. You can substitute for silicone to remedy this problem.

Black marks on clothing at completion of drying cycle


Is the residue coming from the back or front of the drum? Most dryers are equipped with 2 drum roller supports in the rear under the drum. You may have a drum roller that is going bad and some of the rubber residue is getting past the drum seal. Some dryers are quipped with an additional pair of drum rollers under the front of the drum as well. I would check all the drum rollers to see if they are all in good shape. A definite symptom of a bad drum roller is finding black residue along the outside of the drum where the rollers ride. You will have to open the dryer cabinet to see the outside of the drum. Also, check the rear drum seal to make sure it is not crimped or folded inwards in the drum. The felt seal in the back should should ride evenly all the way around the drum and should not be that visible inside the drum itself. That is, you may see some of the seal, but you shouldn't see part of it folded inside the drum or bits of it tattered or torn. I hope this makes sense to you. Let me know if this helps.
