Question and Answers

Q:

Why does the heat shut off during the cycle in my Whirlpool gas dryer model number LGN2000LW0?

A:

The theory of operation for the gas valve assembly in this Whirlpool dryer is provided in the following link for a previous answer: Why won’t the igniter glow on my gas dryer?

Understanding the theory of operation should help you determine the cause of burner failure. Weak gas valve coils are one possibility for this failure if the igniter and flame sensor are operating properly following the first heating cycle. If the gas valve coils are weak, they will normally be strong enough for the first ignition when they are cold. On subsequent ignition attempts when they are heated up, they may not be strong enough to open the gas valves for ignition.

If the gas valve coils need to be replaced, I recommend ordering the gas valve coil kit (part number 279834). This part is much less expensive than ordering the coils separately. You can order this kit from the Sears PartsDirect website.

If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.

Q:

WHIRLPOOL DRYER LGN2000LW0: THE CLOTHES DO NOT DRY IS IT THE GAS THERMOSTAT, THERMOSTAT, OR THE HIGH LIMIT THERMOSTAT. GAS COMES ON THEN SHUTS OFF. WHAT S PROBL

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

For starters; if you run the dryer with it taken apart, the burner is NOT going to stay on very long. When running dryer without the drum and front panel installed, the blower can not pull any heat/air into the drum and the high limit thermostat will open and turn off the gas. The most likely faulty components are weak solenoid coils. The solenoid opens the gas valve and once the coils get hot, they can become too weak to open the gas valve when the igniter comes on. I suggest putting the dryer back together and install the lint filter and then start the dryer. Pry the inspection cover off located below the dryer door and then sit there and monitor the glow bar igniter operation. You may need to sit there for several heating cycles and when you find the igniter glowing red and then fading off without burner ignition; this would indicate the coils need to be replaced.

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

Eric: I provided an answer to your first question in the thread above. I added the link below. A gas dryer is normally less expensive to operate than an electric dryer.
