Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

For starters; if you run the dryer with it taken apart, the burner is NOT going to stay on very long. When running dryer without the drum and front panel installed, the blower can not pull any heat/air into the drum and the high limit thermostat will open and turn off the gas. The most likely faulty components are weak solenoid coils. The solenoid opens the gas valve and once the coils get hot, they can become too weak to open the gas valve when the igniter comes on. I suggest putting the dryer back together and install the lint filter and then start the dryer. Pry the inspection cover off located below the dryer door and then sit there and monitor the glow bar igniter operation. You may need to sit there for several heating cycles and when you find the igniter glowing red and then fading off without burner ignition; this would indicate the coils need to be replaced.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Q:

I have a LGN 2000 LW0 Whirlpool dryer. The burner does not go on. The drum rolls around like always but no heat. How do you get to the burner assembly?

A:

Diagnosing Dryers can be difficult. While you wait for the expert to review your model, you can check a similar questions from a previous expert post if you like. I attached the links below. If you do decide to have a technician diagnose and make repairs, an option is to visit Sears Home Services and use the handy scheduler.

Hello,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life. I know how frustrating it can be when appliances do not function properly.

The most likely cause of this issue is an open thermal fuse. If the gas valve coils are weak, they will normally be strong enough for the first ignition when they are cold. On subsequent ignition attempts when they are heated up, they may not be strong enough to open the gas valves for ignition.

You can remove the little square plug at the bottom of the front panel and see if igniter is glowing. The wiring diagram for your dryer is shown in the first image below. If the igniter is not glowing, several components in the circuit could be preventing the igniter from getting voltage. I recommend checking the thermal fuse first. To access the thermal fuse, unplug the dryer and remove the back panel. The thermal fuse is located on the blower housing. It is Key 7 in the second image below. To test this fuse, pull the wires off and measure the resistance across the leads of the fuse with a volt/ohm meter. You should measure near zero ohms (continuity). If you measure infinite resistance (open), then the fuse is blown and will need to be replaced. NOTE: If the thermal fuse is blown, check for restricted venting or a clogged lint filter. This could have caused the fuse to blow. I provided the theory of operation for the gas valve assembly in the third image below. Understanding this process can help you diagnose the cause of your heating failure if the above tips don't help. You could have an open flame sensor, failed igniter, bad gas valve coils, failed timer, bad centrifugal motor switch or a wiring failure between components that could prevent your dryer from heating.

If the thermal fuse is okay, you can check the operating thermostat (Key 9), thermal cut-off (Key 17) and the high limit thermostat (Key 15) in the same manner. Any of these components could also prevent the igniter from glowing.

To gain access to the burner assembly you will have to remove the front panel of the dryer. Here is a video that will demonstrate gaining access to the burner; Video .

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
