Question about Dryers
Whirlpool ultimate care II LGQ9857LW0>
Before complete loss of heat one day, the week before it did not heat up one time, but then was ok>
i replaced ignitor, but did not fix. Tried various timer and temerature settings to no avail.
Other ideas please>
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.
