Thanks for the details about the igniter not glowing when the dryer is running in a heated cycle. In that situation, the most common failure is a blown thermal fuse. I see that Joseph P. posted a link for a previous answer in the above response. That previous answer describes a procedure for safely bypassing the thermal fuse to see if that igniter will glow. That is a safe procedure that you can try. Be sure that you unplug the dryer before pulling that back panel off of the dryer to access the thermal fuse. That thermal fuse is located on the blower housing. Pulling the wires off of that fuse and taping them together with electrical tape so that they won't short out to the metal cabinet (while the dryer is still unplugged ) is a safe procedure that you can probably complete yourself. Reassembly the dryer and see if the igniter will glow and the burner will ignite with that thermal fuse bypassed. If it does, then you can fix this problem by replacing that thermal fuse. Do not continue to operate the dryer with that thermal fuse bypassed beyond this brief test. Restore the wiring on the thermal fuse as soon as you finish the testing procedure. That thermal fuse must be replaced to safely operate the dryer. If that thermal fuse was blown, I recommend that you recheck the entire exhaust vent duct path to the outside of your home for a clog or restriction. That is the most common cause of a blown thermal fuse. Failure to resolve that type of exhaust air flow issue could cause the thermal fuse to blow again shortly after it is replaced.

Fixing this type of heating failure in the dryer is a repair that you will probably be able to complete yourself. If the above tip regarding the bypass of that thermal fuse does not help, I recommend that you reply to this thread with additional details and we will assist you further.

If you need to replace that thermal fuse, then you can order the part from this page: Thermal Fuse for Whirlpool Dryer Model WGD5830SW0 . Be sure that you unplug the dryer before accessing and replacing that part.

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