20 Most Recent Whirlpool LGB6300 Gas Dryer - Page 4 Questions & Answers


Before you do anything please unplug. I'm not familiar with this model, but you have something else going on there. If the belt has broke or came off the drum would spin quite freely, no motor drag. Try lifting up the top. You may have to insert a puddy knife in the top front corners to release the clips. If not you should be able to remove the back panel. You have to find what is causing the drum obstruction. Goodluck Google burdfrenzy

See this link:

Scroll down until you see a part called "cycling thermostat." Click on the part name and it will show you where it is and how to change it. This is most likely the issue. Also check for bad connections and make sure the dryer vent and discharge piping is clean.

You don't have to buy it from them.

This is likely a coil on the gas valve on its way out symptoms will often be very erratic. Replace the coils if symptoms persist.

The dryer uses a hot surface ignitor to light the gas. It's common for these to go bad, and fairly easy to replace (although it means taking the whole front off of this model, if I remember correctly). A new ignitor is around $40, available online and any well-stocked appliance parts store.

There are other possible causes for the gas not to come on, but the ignitor is most likely. It can be checked with an ohmmeter if there are no obvious breaks. This site has good pictures of how to take the machine apart if you want to try repairing this yourself. (It's the procedure for changing a belt, but the steps are the same for removing the front. Your model doesn't have a separate kick panel that comes off, I believe. If I'm wrong then the job is easier since you can reach the ignitor that way.)

Good luck with the repair, and thanks for using Fixya!

If your dryer is STILL heating, but your clothes still won't dry, you may want to check the dryer interior cabinet and/or the entire run of the exhaust ducting from where it exits your dryer to the point where it leaves your home to ensure you have no kinks, clogs, or excessive bends. The following link explains many of the common problems that can cause poor drying efficiency and longer dry times:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3578821-dryer_takes_too_long_to_dry

Before assuming you have a problem with the appliance, check your installation to ensure you are providing the dryer with proper exhaust and air flow. This is the NUMBER ONE cause of poor drying efficiency. A dryer in a clogged state, or having improper air flow, will not dry efficiently and will cause the heating circuits to OVERHEAT. This will eventually will lead to component failures and is the source of many fire hazards.
If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.

Note: This method works with most front loading machines.

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Note: Some tops hinge and tilt backwards so they do not have to be removed and the electrical console with stay with the lid.
Also remove the lint filter and the screws holding the lint filter housing in place.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.
