Question and Answers

Q:

the dryer is not heating, what part would I need? LGB6300PW0 Whirlpool Residential dryer

A:

Thank You for contacting ManageMyLife.com
I understand your frustration when your dryer stops working. Based on the information you have provided there can be several reason the dryer doesn't heat.
 
Possibilities for dryer to not heat:
Check for a tripped breaker. The dryer will run but won't heat, unless it has 240 volts to it. The motor runs on 120 volts. You can make this voltage check at the terminal block, across the black and red wires, on the back of the dryer. This will be where the power cord is connected.
Modern gas dryers use an electric igniter to ignite the gas from the gas valve. When it's working properly, the igniter glows bright orange. When it burns out, the dryer tumbles but there's no heat because the gas can't ignite.
Watch the igniter. Does it glow bright orange, then shut off without igniting the gas? (When the gas ignites there's a large blue flame.) If so, there may be defective coils on the gas valve. Mounted on the top of modern gas valves, there are black electrical coils. The coils, when energized, open the gas valve. If one or more of the coils are defective, the valve doesn't open and the gas cannot ignite.
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity.
Other possibilities:
Timer
Thermostat
Door switch
Ignitor
If you do not feel comfortable performing the repair yourself, I suggest scheduling service at 1-800-469-4663, so you can get prices for a service call and have a technician diagnose and repair your dryer.
If you have further questions please let me know.
