Whirlpoo gas dryer Modle#LGQ8611LW0 LGQ8611LW0

A:

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com
 
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when needing information of the dryer.
 
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Whirlpool Gas Dryer model number LGQ8611LW0.

You are wondering where the "thermal Fuse" is located.   It is right behind the blower fan.   I have a picture of it on the link below and it will be key number 59.   Lower right hand corner of the picture behind the blower fan, just under the tub picture.

Q:

Whirpool gas dryer Model #LGQ8611LW0 LGQ8611LW0 Whirlpool Residential dryer

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
Sorry to hear about the lack of power in the dryer, I know how frustrating it is to not have the unit working.
If the issue was with the door switch, the interior light would still be on. The only parts that would cause the dryer to be powerless would be if the power cord is not plugged in, the power cord is not connected to the terminal block, or the thermal fuse has blown. 
The first two would be easy to eliminate. The thermal fuse is located on the blower housing, and would need to be multimeter tested to see if it's open or closed to know for sure if it's defective. 
I suspect the issue is stemming from the fuse as long as the power cord is connected and plugged in and the circuit breaker was checked.
Let us know if we can be of any further assistance and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com.

I know how important your dryer is to you. I researched your question and was able to find a couple links that have information on a dryer not heating. I attached the link below. I hope this helps.

That model number LGQ86111LW0 appears to be slightly off (an extra 1 in the model number). I suspect that you have model LGQ8611LW0. Based on that model number, the wiring diagram for your dryer is shown in the first image below with that heating circuit through the igniter traced in red. I recommend that you unplug the dryer and pull that lower front access panel as shown in the second image. Plug the dryer back in and briefly run the dryer in a heated cycle to see if that igniter is glowing. Do not make contact with any of the internal components while the dryer is running with that lower front access panel removed. The theory of operation for that burner assembly on your dryer is shown in the 3rd image. If the igniter is not glowing, I recommend that you unplug the dryer and check that thermal fuse for continuity. The 4th image shows the location of that thermal fuse. Here is a link for a brief video that shows how to check the thermal fuse using a volt/ohm meter: Thermal Fuse Testing . If that thermal fuse is blown, you will need to replace it. You can order that part from the Sears PartsDirect website. Be sure that you unplug the dryer before accessing and replacing internal components. Also, check that exhaust vent duct system to the outside of your home as shown in that video if that thermal fuse was blown.

If that thermal fuse is okay then you could have a problem with one of the other components in that heating circuit that is preventing the igniter from glowing. You can check the other components for continuity in a similar manner to the one used for the thermal fuse.

If that igniter is glowing and then shutting off but the gas valve does not open, then you may need to replace those gas valve coils (kit part 279834). Here is a video that shows how to replace those coils: Gas Dryer Valve Coil Replacement .

These tips may help you fix this dryer heating problem. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details and an updated model number if necessary.

If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this heating failure in your dryer, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .
