Whirlpool Gas
Dryer Not Heating?
Learn how to fix it.
DryerNotHeating.net
But you can use this info
to help fix any dryer.
We will be focusing on the
Whirlpool gas dryer with the
lint trap on the top
Lint Trap
DryerNotHeating.net
Locate the small peak hole on the front left
bottom corner of your dryer. Pop the plastic
cover off with a
small screw driver.
Let’s begin with a little
troubleshooting
Tip: Other models/brands will either
have a front panel that can be removed
in order to troubleshoot or another way
to view the igniter. With some GE
dryers you may have to slip a small
mirror under the right corner area of
the dryer.

Set your dryer timer to a
heat setting such as timed dry or automatic dry.
Now turn your dryer on.
DryerNotHeating.net
The thermal fuse usually fails due to lint blockage inside
the dryer’s vent system.
If the igniter never glows
orange, you will want to check the thermal fuse
in the back of your dryer
DryerNotHeating.net
Thermal fuse
DryerNotHeating.net
To test the thermal fuse, remove the
two wires from the terminals on the
thermal fuse. Set your multi-meter to
the lowest setting of ohms. Now
touch the lead from your multimeter
on each terminal. If you get a reading
of 1 like we do here, replace your
thermal fuse.
Also look for airflow blockages and
clean them.
No orange glow
DryerNotHeating.net
If you get a reading other than 1
on your thermal fuse. Test the
igniter in the same manner as
you tested the thermal fuse.
You will need to unplug the two
wires that plug into your igniter.
No orange glow
DryerNotHeating.net
Place each one of your leads on the two terminals shown
here. If you get a reading of 1, replace the igniter.
No orange glow

A less likely candidate that would
cause your igniter not to glow is
the high-limit thermostat. (The
high-limit thermostat would be
one of the first things to check on
an electric dryer, that doesn’t
heat, but for the the gas dryer the
thermal fuse usually goes before
the high-limit. It’s still worth
checking though.

If your igniter glows orange, but the gas never
ignites...

Test the flame sensor, if
you get a reading of 1,
replace it.
If the flame sensor
checks out good, test
your cycling
thermostat.
Orange glow, no ignition
DryerNotHeating.net
If the flame sensor checks
out good, test your cycling
thermostat.
Remove the wires from the
outer 2 terminals and test
for continuity. If you get a
reading of 1, replace the
cycling thermostat.

If your cycling thermostat checks out good, make
sure the gas to your dryer is turned on.
If the gas on your dryer is turned on.
Replace the valve coils. Shown on next few
slides.

Remove the terminals.

Unscrew the two screws that were
located here.

Remove valve coils and replace with new set.
Long dry time/ gas ignites for a while then turns
off.
DryerNotHeating.net
There are a few things that you need to check if
you are having long dry times. They are:
● Cycling thermostat
● Lint build up in your dryer venting
If all the above check out good, replace the valve coils.
