Whirlpool Gas Dryer - Little To No Heat
« on: April 22, 2010, 05:14:03 PM »
First our drying times have been getting longer for the past few months. Then last Sunday the dryer will turn on the igniter turns red and the gas gets ignited and the flame will stay lit for 7 to 12 seconds then after 60 to 65 seconds it will do the same thing.

My best guess right now is the Bias Thermostat.

I did check resistance on the gas coils and they measure just fine. I know the igniter is fine as well.

Model GGQ8811PW1

Just for fun.  Turn your dryer on and check the airflow on the outside of your house.  Make sure it is nice and strong!

When the flame is lit, Does it make its way all the way to the back of the burner housing, and kinda bend upwards towards the heat duct?    or does it blast basically onto the high limit thermostat mounted on the side of the burner housing?

If the flame sensor calls for heat and the igniter comes on, and if the flame sensor shuts down the igniter and the flame does come on and then it takes fifty forever's to come back on then Boom! you need to replace the coils. You can feel em after they work the coil that is hot is the bad boy.
