Question about Whirlpool LGR6611L Gas Dryer

1 Answer

Intermittent heating on my Whirlpool gas dryer (lgr6611lq0). I have the back off and can see the burner come on for a bit and then go off. I have good airflow out of the dryer vent (at the dryer itself). Have thoroughly cleaned out the lint trap and the metal box the encases it. What should I be looking for next.

The symptom you have indicates weak solenoid coils. The gas valve should open and the burner should ignite every time the glow bar igniter glows before it fades back off. Weak solenoid coils will usually open the gas valve until the solenoids become hot from the current and flame and then they don't have enough power to open the gas valve.

Replace both solenoid coils and your dryer will most heat and operate normally again. In order to access and replace the solenoid coils you will need to remove the front panel.

Here is the coil kit to order.

I have a Maytag MDG9606AWW gas dryer. The heat is intermittent. What part is most likely to need replacing?

Although it could be several things, the three most likely suspects is the radiant sensor P/N 338906, the thermostat P/N 303395 if there is a temperature fluctuation but the burner is active. The gas valve P/N 306176 if the burner is not active. Intermittent problems are very hard to troubleshoot so you need to write down every indication and when it happens. For example: Works good on permanet press, but not on high.

Hope this helps. Hal aka ImJustAvg

Gas whirlpool dryer model LGR6611LQ0 will not heat up . Ignitor turns on but will not light


If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

check out this electric no heat tip...
