Whirlpool LGR8648 Gas Dryer - Heat goes off after a few minutes
Posted 28 August 2005 - 05:48 PM
I have an odd problem here... My Whirlpool Model LGR8648LW8 Gas Dryer will heat up and seem to be running fine - for about 10 minutes or so. After lulling me into a false sense of confidence, the gas burner fails to re-ignite. I can see the igniter glowing, but no gas flows, and (of course) no more heat. The igniter will continue to cycle on and off at about 1 minute intervals, but the gas never turns back on.
More Info: I've checked resistance of the thermostat heater - looks good at about 7.5 Kohms
the thermal cutouts are all staying closed during operation - no voltage drop across them while running.
Next steps? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A thousand blessings upon you.
I didn't think of a 'weak' part, I was looking for a hard failure... poor logic on my part.
I'll order up a pair now.
