20 Most Recent Whirlpool LGR7648KQ Dryer Questions & Answers

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
1. Gas valve coils
Igniter glows, then shuts off without igniting gas - the problem is probably with defective coils (black, located on top of the gas valve). It is recommended to replace all coils (usually two or three) if found defective.

Note: Sometimes the whole gas valve may be defective, thus not letting the gas out. However, this problem is not common.

2. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

3. Igniter
Igniter may burn out or break. Replace the igniter if found defective.

Note: Igniters are very fragile and break easily. It is recommended to handle the igniter only touching the ceramic part of it (usually white in color).

4. Flame sensor (or radiant heat sensor)
Replace the sensor (located near the igniter) if found defective.

Good day,
If it will alway fire the first time after a long rest period, and then refuse to fire on the second try and the machine goes cold but continues to run, then it is almost always the coil kits on the gas valve.
That's a classic Whirlpool event.
To replace,
Remove the lint filter. Remove the 2 screws under the lint filter opening.
With a thin screw driver pry up the lid (top) off the clips, one side at a time.
Lift the top front, but do not go above vertical, and prop in that position.
The front panel is held on with 2 screws, one at each corner. remove, and remove the wires from the door switch and it's clamp.
Pull the panel toward you and lift it off the bottom clips.
You will see the gas valve on the bottom left.
Unplug both wire assemblies from the coils, then remove the 2 screws that hold the bracket.
Remove bracket and lift the coils off.
Any appliance parts house will stock the coil kit.
Relace in reverse order, and it's a good time to check your vent system to make sure it is clean.

Can you hear the motor running when you hit the start button??
If so then the belt has either jumped off or is broken. If there is no motor then it could be a bad motor or an electrical problem. Check for voltage to the motor and work back from there.

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem.

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Below is a link to common solutions that will help you with parts and diagnostic procedures that are specifically tuned to your manufacturers data plate information.
It provides exploded view imagery, belt routing diagrams, parts imagery and function, parts ordering and shipping information, error code details, just about anything you need to get your appliance up and running again. Once you access the site you will be able to navigate numerous pages of information on your product. You will need to enter your model number to access your product information.

Here are some things to look for:

If your dryer doesn't heat, check these:

Gas valve coils
Thermal fuse
Igniter Modern gas dryers use an electric igniter to ignite the gas from the gas valve. When it's working properly, the igniter glows bright orange. When it burns out, the dryer tumbles but there's no heat because the gas can't ignite. When the igniter burns out, you need to replace it. If the igniter is held by a tension bracket, you very well may need to replace the bracket too.

The igniter is inside the dryer housing, near the bottom front, usually in a cone-shaped metal tube (the force cone). It's about 2 inches long. It's mounted to the far end of the burner tube, and it has two wires attached to it--or to the tension bracket, if there is one.

Gas valve coils Watch the igniter. Does it glow bright orange, then shut off without igniting the gas? (When the gas ignites there's a large blue flame.) If so, there may be defective coils on the gas valve. Mounted on the top of modern gas valves, there are black electrical coils. The coils, when energized, open the gas valve. If one or more of the coils are defective, the valve doesn't open and the gas cannot ignite. Because it's often difficult to properly test the coils, it's usually best to replace both (all) of them at the same time.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

Thank you,

does your dryer have a dry sensor ? if so try changing the dial to a different setting that doesn't use the sensor, also some models have a separate button to turn off the dry sensor. it is meant to save energy if your clothes are dry before the time you set
