Question and Answers

Q:

Whirlpool Electric Dryer LGR7648PQ1 won't heat.

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on the model number provided; it's a gas dryer and not an electric dryer.

If the glow bar igniter is not glowing, it could have a faulty igniter (key#4), high limit thermostat (key#15), thermal cut off (key#16), operating thermostat (key#9), thermal fuse (key#7) or flame sensor (key#49). The igniter and flame sensor is located behind the front panel. All the other components I listed are located and accessed from the rear. I added an image below of the wiring diagram. The parts located at the rear should be checked first. Each one can be disconnected and tested for continuity with an Ohm meter.

I added a couple of images below. One is the wiring diagram with the heating circuit traced in red and black. I circled the components that should be disconnected and then tested for continuity with an Ohm meter. I would start with checking the thermal fuse (key#7). The other image shows where the parts are located by key numbers.

I added a YouTube video which will help you diagnose why your gas dryer is not heating .

NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the rear panel.

Check the things I have covered here and if I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
