A whirlpool gas dryer will not heat up


If your dryer is not getting any heat, you need to make sure there is nothing blocking the vent. IE: LINT. Air flow is key to efficient drying. Make sure the dryer settings are appropriate for the clothes you want to dry. The timer selection, fabric selection, and the temperature selection all play important roles in proper dryer operation.
Check the heating element, burner operation, ignitor, thermal fuse, and the wiring (power cord).
• Heating element (For Electric Models)
• Burner operation (For Gas Models)
• Ignitor (For Gas Models)
• Thermal fuse
I WOULD START WITH:
To protect from over-heating, many dryers use what's commonly called a thermal fuse. If the thermal fuse gets too hot, it will blow, and completely shut down your dryer until it is replaced. This fuse is often mounted within the exhaust duct in the back panel. It's about an inch long, and is usually found within a white plastic housing. When fuses blow, it means they have no continuity and no power will flow through it. A bad thermal fuse needs to be replaced. When replacing this fuse, check the dryer vents to make sure there is no lint buildup which can cause the heat to stay trapped and blow the fuse again.
Visually inspect your heating element for any broken or burned areas.Check the coil for continuity with a Volt Ohm Meter. If there's no continuity, it means that the element is bad and you need to replace it.
If the ignitor is cycling without the burner lighting, you probably have defective electrical coils in the gas valve. These coils look like black cylinders with wires coming out the top of them, and are located near the burner valve assembly. When they get power, they open up and allow the gas to get through to the burner. If this is a new installation, make sure the gas valve is turned on.

It's run but there's no heat


The gas dryer has a spark ignitor that starts the burner to heat up. Upon switching on the dryer you should hear the ignitor clicking to light the burner. If you do not hear the clicking noise the ignitor needs to ne replaced

Whirlpool Model SGDS800JQ2 gas dryer getting no heat


Check to make sure the burner ignitor is not burned out. Check all the other parts you mentioned........ pull one wire off each part(one at a time) and check with with with an OHM meter.... should all be in the closed position.

I have a whirlpool gas dryer that will spin but not generate any heat? maybe the ignitor or the burner?


it could be:
1. thermal fuse (check continuity ~0 Ohm)
2. gas valve coils (check continuity with Ohmmeter set to x100 or x1000)
3. Ignitor (check continuity, can be up to 80 Ohm)

Much less likely:
4. radiant heat sensor (should open when heated by ignitor).
5.cycling or high limit thermostat (check continuity, ~0 Ohm)

Whirlpool lg9521xt gas dryer- no heat or flame. I replaced thermal fuse and coil kit, but didn't solve problem. What's next ? The igniter ?


Remove the bottom panel and start dryer . If you see the red glow , then ignitor is ok . Disconnect the plug (2 or 3 wires ) going to the burner and check for 120 volts . If no red glow , replace the ignitor pt # 279311 . If not 120 volts , then , normally , thermal fuse is bad (white piece with 2 small terminals on blower box ) is bad .

I have a Kenmore gas dryer that isn't heating up. The ignitor isn't glowing at all. I checked it with an ohm meter and it was ok, as is the heat sensor. What else could be causing it not to ignite?


You possibly have an open thermal fuse caused by having too much lint in exhaust/vent leaving dryer and in the dryer duct. TEMPORARILY bypass thermal fuse after cleaning out lint to see if that solves the problem. Then REPLACE fuse as it could save a house fire. Check high limit as well thats attached to the duct that the burner is on.

Whirlpool LGR7646EQ0 turns no heat


the dryer has no pilot light, haven't had them in years. It operates off a hot surface ignitor.I would check to see if you are getting power to the ignitor 115v. If you are the ignitor is bad. Sometimes you can see the ignitor cracked. Did it take long to dry the clothes before it quit? If so your vent may be clogged which will blow a thermal limit on the dryer and keep it from heating. hope this helps...
