Default Dryer Has Bad Coils
Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 1 - 5 years

An appliance technician serviced my Whirpool dryer yesterday and told me for $272.00 he could replace the bad coils he found and clean the filter trap. That's more than I paid for the dryer. I paid him his $90.00 service charge and told him to get the stepping. I saw the coils online for $17.97. How do I install the coils? How do I take the front and back dryer covers off? I think I can do this myself for a lot less than the cost of a new dryer. Please help!

In order to provide the most accurate advise I need the complete model number of the dryer.

You can find the instructions in one of our previous posts: Instructions for changing coils

- The part number for the kit of coils is AP3094251

- Here are the break down diagrams for the Whirlpool dryer Model LGR4634JQ2

Good luck.

The dryer lights sometimes stays on for a minute or two than shuts off. Do I also have bad coils?

If it relights every single time but it takes longer time to dry, then the problem most likely is an obstructed vent.
