Default Dryer won't light
Model Number: LGR7646JQ0   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I can see the starter trying to light the dryer, but no ignition. I think it went out during a cycle last nite. Now, of course, it just blows cold.
Any help would be appreciated.

If the igniter glows but it does not light the gas then the problem most likely is a bad gas valve coils (#13 & #14 on the diagram).

If the igniter stays "off" then The first thing I would do is check the thermal fuse (#7 on the diagram) for continuity.

- The gas valve coil kit Part number: AP3094251

Part number: AP3094251



- The thermal fuse Part number: AP3132867

Part number: AP3132867



Here are the breakdown diagrams and Replacement parts for WHIRLPOOL LGR7646JQ0 | AppliancePartsPros.com
