Does the dryer try to ignite? That is, does the igniter glow? If the igniter is glowing, and you have already replaced it, you may have a problem with one or both of the gas safety coils. There are two of them on your dryer burner assembly. One is the main coil (two terminal) and one is for the pilot position (3 terminal). When they go bad, the gas valve will not open. The result is an igniter that glows, but there will be no gas flow or ignition. It is recommended that you replace both coils at the same time.

You can find your parts at searspartsdirect.com by typing in your model number and looking under the "Burner Assembly" heading on the next page. The coils are listed as item numbers 13 & 14 (part numbers 694540 and 694539, respectively). You can find these same parts at repairclinic.com sold as a set for a lot less (item #3479) - a savings of about $50! I mention the Sears website, because it offers great part illustration diagrams. If I'm not accurate in the description of your symptoms, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

My gas dryer has no heat


long dry times are a venting problem. if no heat at all it could be your ignitor, a thermal fuse, or the secondary gas coils, all are replaceable and reasanoblyy cheap between 30-90 dollars usually so its up to u it u want to repair it.. if long dry times i would unplug the venting from the rear and dry a load if it heats faster than u know ur venting is clogged and u might wanna clean ur ducting and replace that venting tube. also u can go outside while running and see or feel if air is being pushed out while its running hope this helps let me know how it goes

We have a Whirlpool Ultimate Care II gas Dryer that is getting intermittant heat. Sometimes it will heat, sometimes it won't. Iin addition, today it stopped rotating as well. Ideas?


Could just be a matter of wires coming loose. The movement and vibration of the spinning could have shaken wires loose. look for any wires not connected to anything.

I have a Whirlpool gold Ultimate Care II gas dryer and 2/3 times the ignitor glows and lights the gas, 1/3 times it won't. When the gas does light, it doesn't seem like it's getting hot enough to do...


I would suggest the coils on the gas valve . Also check the vent to make sure good air flow is getting out of the dryer . Try disconnecting the vent hose and drying a load to determine if maybe the vent is the problem .

Whirlpool Gold Ultimate Care II: No heat


didc, on a gas dryer, if the thermal fuse blows it will still rotate, but will not heat. Since this is a gas dryer, see if the ignitor is glowing. If it is, then you know the thermal fuse is good. If not, the thermal fuse may be blown or the ignitor itself and thus the reason for no heat. Catriver.7152136.jpg
