Re: whirlpoll lgr5644jq1
You need to check the solinoids on the gas vale. They might work to start but after they heat up some they possibly could break down and shut off. There are 2 coils on the valve. When you first start the dryer you should head a distinctive loud click noise. that is the primary coil opening the valve. When that happens you should also see the glow bar lighting. after the bar lights you should hear one more loud click. Thats the heat sensor opening and allowing the other coil to open to allow gas to flow and ignite. If you do not hear the first click when you start the dryer, look in the back for a small white rectangular fuse with 2 small wires on it. (they may be blue in color) That is a thermal fuse. Use a ohm meter to check if it is pen. If it is replace it.If you heard the first click and the glow bar starts to light but nothing else happens, you eed to check the heat sensor. It is connected to the flame baffle at the end of the gas valve. It will have 2 wires on it. One white and one blue I belive. It is attached by 1 screw. ( 1/4") You will need to check that out with a meter also. If it checks good reinstall it. You will then want to ohm out both coils. Only one may be bad but I recomend you replace the both of them. You will also want to make sure that your vent is not clogged up. That too can cause the dryer to short cycle. Hope this will help you.

what are you running it on?auto or more or less,if so the timer will not advance to off without heat,usually the heat comes on,the dryer heats up until it reaches temp.the heater shuts off and then the timer will start to advance to off,when the heat comes back on the timer will stop advancing and the heat will come on,it will do this until the clothes are dry,so no heat the timer will not move,now if you put it on time dry the timer should count down no matter what just like a clock.if you open the door and look around the opening where you put the clothes in you'll see a tag with the model number send this and i can help you.
Probably the elliment(s)..
how to check -- remove the exaust hose.. Put a mirror so that you can see into the hole.. When it is running and if the elliment is working - you should see it glowing red hot..
Some dryers have one & others have 2 or 3 or so..
Hi, If the dryer heats but will not advance in either time or auto cycles, you need to change the timer. You can test to see if the timer is getting voltage. Remove the top rear panel and locate the two wires going to the timer motor. There should be 120V when the dryer is running in time dry. Please let me know if this helps or if I can assist you further.
Some dryers have a "press guard" setting. This willkeep the dryer tumbling with no heat at the end of the cycle. Usually you can select it on or off and in some cases can set the time. see if you have this feature.
