Hi!

I recently purchased a brand new Whirlpool GTDP180GDWW Dryer from Lowe's -- and since our house is on a propane tank, I also purchased and installed the WE25X0217 LP Conversion Kit. The installation went off without a hitch, and I started up the dryer to test things out. Unfortunately, I've noticed some intermittent sputtering. I've never used a gas dryer before, so I'm not really sure what's normal; I just assumed that a dryer would provide a steady flame like our stove/oven...

During the course of the drying cycle, the igniter will glow, then the gas will kick on, and the burner will light up and burn for 2 or 3 minutes -- then the gas shuts off, and the dryer runs for a few minutes without the burner. This "heating cycle" is repeated regularly throughout the drying cycle, which is exactly what I'd expect. The only problem is the sputtering. For the most part, the burner has a nice, steady roar, but occasionally, it will flicker and sputter. Sometimes it's just a quick "pop" that happens once or twice during the individual "heating cycle," other times it's a near-constant sputter -- almost a whistle. The best way I can describe it is that looks (and sounds) like the burner of a propane grill on a windy day...

I thought maybe that the gas line might need to be cleared out, and so I've run the dryer for a total of probably 45 minutes or so, to no avail. I also wondered if it might have something to do with our elevation (approx. 4,500 feet above sea level), but I can't find anything about Whirlpool offering a "high elevation LP conversion kit." Any suggestions?
