Thank you for your question.  I am sorry you are having a problem with your Estate/Whirlpool TGDX640pq1 gas dryer

The ignitor glowing or not glowing is the key to knowing what the problem is.  On the front panel of your dryer is a small square plug that can be pried out.  With the plug removed you can visually check if the ignitor is glowing brightly or not. 

If the ignitor is not glowing the most likely cause of the problem is a bad thermal fuse.  On this model the thermal fuse is located behind the rear panel on the exhaust.  The 2nd image below will show you more on this.  The 1st image shows how to remove the front panel to access the gas valve and ignitor if needed.

Caution: Before attempting any repair, unplug the dryer from the wall first. 

The thermal fuse can be checked for continuity with a meter is one is available. 

U hope this information is helpful to you.

You can also have the problem repaired in your home by a Sears technician.  Here is the link  Sears Home Services Dryer Repair

Q:

Why is my Whirlpool Estate gas dryer not drying, model number TGDX640PQ1?

A:

Core Issue: Why is my Whirlpool Estate gas dryer not drying, model number TGDX640PQ1?

Resolution: The Gas Dryer heats with a gas burner, make sure the gas supply line valve is open. See image below,showing the "ON" and "OFF" positions of the gas supply line valve. Make sure the timer is not set on an air dry cycle. If gas supply is ok, you may have a faulty thermal fuse. Contact a service technician for full diagnostic.

Note_: General resolution for problem is based on information submitted with question. Sears Repair Department 1-800-469-4663.
