Hiya,

 My fiance has a Whirlpool gas dryer Model number LGR7646JQ0 that will not heat up at all, I removed the vent and no clogs, and I am not familiar with gas dryers or how to access the igniter to check it. Any help would be appreciated!

You will need to lift up the top of the dryer and remove the complete front of the dryer,  The burner assy is on the left side up toward the front on the bottom of the dryer.  Be sure to unplug the dryer and turn the gas off at the wall.  The ignitor is on the left side of the burner assy and you can ohom it out after carefully removing it to see if it is bad.  Be careful as it is very fragile, and do not touch the ignitor part with your bare hands in case it is not the problem.

You can remove the inspection port on the front panel to see if the ignitor is glowing, but that don't necessarily rule the ignitor in or out.

First thing to check is the thermal fuse located on the air duct in the rear of the machine (just after the lint filter.  Pop the back panel off & yuo'll see it on the lower left as you view tha back of the dryer.  Remove the fuse if it's open, replace it, if it's closed, check your ignitor next.  The fuses go more often.

Could also be the timer or coils on the gas valve, though the coils usually will open once to start the cycle, then won't cycle back on.

Hi, Loitering Ben.  Yanno, if you would register, you could edit your posts, view attachments, post attachments, and generally have a lot more credibility around here if you wanted help.  Who knows: you might even become a Master Appliantologist!
