Question about Whirlpool LGR5644J Gas Dryer
The gas dryer tumbles but does not heat. With the gas off and the power disconnected, I read resistance on the fuse, high limit switches, coils, & igniter. I do not read resistance(0 Ohms) on the flame sensor. Could this be the problem. Plase advise. Thanks for your help.
Yes, that is most likely the problem. Once the glow bar igniter glows so hot, the switch opens & drops power to the igniter.(The radiant sensor has continuity while cold & open when a flame is present.) At the same time, by opening it redirects power to the valve coils allowing them to open & gas flow to the burner assembly. The dying glow of the igniter fires the gas. However, if your igniter glows, the radiant sensor is good. In this case, you'd need to replace the gas valve solenoids.
