Whirlpool Gas Dryer

2 posts in this topic

The dryer is model # LGR4634EQ3. Well it starts up and heats up for about 5 minutes then shuts off the heat and you can smell gas out of the vent.  Sometimes the heat stays on through the cycle but most of the time the heat shuts off.  What can be the problem??  We checked the exhaust and it seems fine.

Thank you.

Usually the problem with the heat cutting off and not coming back on are the coils on top of the gas valve.  HOWEVER since you smell gas from the exhaust your gas valve is also sticking open, you will need to replace the gas valve complete with the coils to start.
