I have a whirlpool dryer, model#LGR7646JQ0 serial#MK3219840
the dryer works, the drum spins but they dryer is not heating the drum or the clothes. I feel no heat inside the dryer after 30-40 minutes of (trying) to dry clothes. Any suggestions? Ignition lighter? Heat sensor?

Kenmore / Whirlpool Washer Not Spinning 1. Bill Newberry ... Washer will not spin the clothes dry ... Now ..
You have a broken or loose drive belt. You can order a new one online (repairclinic.com) have your make and model numbers handy. There's also exploded views to help you.
You'll need to remove the front panel and drum front panel, the drum and route the new belt around the tensioner pulley below the drum... It's a bit tricky but if you take your time you'll be able to do it.. Let us know if you need assistance with disassembly. K
So,. basically your drum doesnt turn. SO your getting heat still even though the drum isnt turning. Is this right? Sounds strange??? Do you hear any humming noise when you push the start button? I need to know a little more about the problem because im kinda confused as how you decribed the problem. Iv never seen a dryer heat but the drum not spinning. especially your model dryer. Its electric heat right? because if the drum doesnt spin, maybe your motor is bad. and if your motor is bad, then your heating element wont heat up because the centrifical switch in the motor is not switching to complete the circuit to the heating element. So this is why im confused when you said" Dryer heats when knob turned but when "push button" pressed, drum doesnt run." Because your belt wraps around the motor pully and the motor is what makes the drum turn. Like i said, i never seen this model dryer heat with out the motor operating. So if you can give me some more info, ill do my best to help you out....Thanks!!!!
