Whirlpool gas dryer stops heating....

7 posts in this topic

I have a Whirlpool gas dryer model # LGR4634JQ0. The dryer works fine and heats up the clothes for a short period of time and then the heat stops working. I also start to hear a buzzing type of sound coming from inside the dryer. If I wait several hours, the heat will work again, but then the same thing happens. I checked the thermostats and thermal fuse and they were fine. Seeing as the heat actually works on occasion, I really wasn't suspect of them. Any ideas?

Would suspect the coils on top of the gas valve have gotten weak and need to be replaced.
