Q:

Whirlpool Gas Dryer LGR4634EQ0

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The igniter must have a 120 volts supplied to it or it will not glow. I added an image below of the wiring diagram and I traced the electrical circuit in red and green. If any one of the components have circled in red is open/has no continuity it will break the circuit and prevent voltage from reaching the igniter. Yes, if the radiant sensor is faulty it too will break the voltage to the igniter. You can disconnect the component and test it for continuity using an Ohm meter. Whichever one tests open/no continuity, replace that component.

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

Q:

What would cause my Whirlpool gas dryer drum to barely move and not start when I push start?

A:

I recommend removing the front panel and drum in order to access the drive motor. With the belt removed, turn the motor pulley by hand to see if it will spin freely. If it does not spin freely, there could be something stuck in the blower wheel or housing or it could be a bad motor.

To remove the front panel:

  1. Disconnect the power cord from the power source.
  2. Pull the lint filter out and remove the two screws that was hidden by the lint filter.
  3. Lift the top open
  4. Remove the one screw located at the top of each side panel fastening the front panel to the side panels.
  5. Tilt the top of the front panel outwards and disconnect the door switch.
  6. Lift the front panel up and off.
  7. Remove the belt from the motor and idler.
  8. Lift the drum about 2 inches and then slide it out the front.

Once you have the drum taken out, spin the motor pulley to see how freely it spins. It should spin very easily and coast to stop. If the motor pulley is difficult to spin and it has a lot of drag, there could be something stuck in the blower housing causing the resistance or a bad motor. You may be able to reach in and remove the article from the blower wheel by disconnecting the vent hose and reaching into the exhaust and feeling for a garment. You can also remove the lint duct from the blower housing too if needed.
