Question and Answers

Q:

gas dryer no heat checked all parts OK but no gas comes the ingitor stays on LGR6620PQ1 Whirlpool Residential dryer

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

If the two wires were fixed and installed in their proper positions, I suspect welded contacts in the flame sensor. 

If the glow bar igniter is glowing and not fading off after a short while, I suspect the contacts in the flame sensor/radiant sensor is welded closed. If the flame switch contacts are welded shut, the igniter will not fade of nor will the gas valve open. The flame sensor contacts must open in order for the igniter to turn off and for the gas valve to open. The gas valve will open as soon the contacts open in the flame sensor. I'm not recommending doing so, but if you were to let the igniter glow red hot and then disconnect one of the wires from the flame sensor, the dryer should ignite.  If you do try this, make sure you wear gloves and to not touch the female end of the wire or let it touch any metal ground.

The flame sensor is located on the left side of the burner cone and it will have two wires connected to it. The top will need to be hinged open and the front panel must be taken off to access the flame sensor. You have to pull the lint filter out and then remove the two screws that were hidden by the lint filter. Once the top is hinged open, the screw near the top of each side panel securing the top of the front panel will need to be taken out. The lid switch harness connector must also be disconnected before removing the front panel. Tilt the top of the front panel forwards and then lift it off the two hangers. See image below.

If it ignites, replace the flame sensor. The flame sensor is part # 338906 which can be ordered from SearsPartsDirect. 

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

Douglas; Be careful in doing so. You will likely find the radiant sensor/flame sensor stuck closed. Be sure to disconnect the power cord before servicing.
