This should show you a parts break down for the unit. You can also find a schematic in the console (usually about 6 1/4" screws from the back of the console). As far as your problem, overheating could be causing it. Run the unit without the vent attached and see if the problem persists. If the unit keeps running, you'll know you have a venting problem. If the problem persists, I would usually replace the gas valves (usually one goes bad and won't hold open). These would be availible from a local appliance parts store.

Ive changed the ignitor, sensor, thermostat, fuse-thrml, and thermostat-fix.. my dryer still is only heating for only 5 min then goes cold. what can i do? model: LGR7646JQ0


This is usually the dryer coils have failed. They tend to fail as they heat up. They are inexpensive and easy to replace. Here is a video on replacing the dryer coils.

Water turns cold very quickly


I had the EXACT same problem (installed my tankless last winter and worked fine, now this summer it fluctuates, have to turn the shower completely off and then on again to get any hot water and then it only lasts for a couple of minutes!) Argh - it is frustrating!

Here's what I found: the demand for hot water is lower during the summer (hot) months because the "cold" water coming in is already quite warm. You don't need as much hot water to make the shower temp comfortable. SO, my tankless was shutting off due to low flow demand. I've removed the flow restrictor from my shower head and it helped alot but didn't completely solve the prob. Next step is what has been recommended to me by several people but is much more expensive - change the pressure valve on your shower to a temperature valve. Or just wait til winter and it should work ok again :)

Sounds like you have a bad warp switch. Also could have a gas valve going bad.

Dryer does not release any heat


Is yours the gas model? If so I need you to look for some things. Open back door panel and see if while trying to light the igniter is glowing orange. Sea Breeze

Should the washer be hot after the rinse cycle?


Try cycling a cold/cold wash and see how that comes out.. if it comes out hot then your water inlet valve is letting hot water in when it shouldn't.. conversely, try cycling a hot/hot wash and see that it does indeed come out hot... ( quick tests to verify performance)..hope this helps.
