Question and Answers

Q:

Where can I get a manual for my Whirlpool dryer model LGR5636KT0?

A:

Here is a link for the owner's manual for your dryer: Owner's Manual

Here are some tips that may help you with your heating problem:

  • Make sure that the gas cut-off valve for the dryer is fully open. Check to see if the dryer has an adequate gas supply provided to it.
  • Pull the observation plug out of the front panel and check to see if the igniter is glowing when the dryer is running and set to a heated cycle. If the igniter is not glowing, I recommend checking the thermal fuse. The wiring diagram for your dryer is shown in the first image below. The second image below shows the location of the thermal fuse in your type of dryer. (Note: Your dryer will have an operating thermostat beside the thermal fuse instead of a thermistor as shown in the image.) To access the thermal fuse, shut off the gas supply, unplug the dryer and remove the back panel. To check the thermal fuse, remove one wire (with the dryer still unplugged) and measure the resistance across the leads of the fuse with a volt/ohm meter. You should measure near zero ohms of resistance (closed). If you measure infinite resistance (open), then the fuse is blown and will need to be replaced.

NOTE: If the thermal fuse was blown, check for restricted exhaust venting that could have caused the fuse to blow.

If the thermal fuse is okay, you can check the operating thermostat and the high limit thermostat in the same manner.

If you need parts, you can order them through the Sears PartsDirect website.

If all of the above components are okay, then you could have one of the following failures:

  • Open flame sensor.
  • Failed igniter.
  • Failed gas valve coils.
  • Bad contact in the timer.
  • Failed motor centrifugal switch.
  • Wiring failure between components.
These tips may help you resolve the heating problem in your dryer. If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.
