Whirlpool gas dryer conversion to LP

I recently bought a Whirlpool gas dryer, Model # LGR4634PQO, at Menards and need to convert it to LP gas. They also sold me a LP gas conversion kit. The kit is made by Amana and is No. 649P3. When I took apart my dryer, there is a sticker that states that I need conversion kit 49572 which is a Whirlpool number. The guy at Menards said that he thinks the kit he sold me should work. Is this Amana conversion kit the correct one? Or should I order the 49572 kit which is listed on the dryer sticker? Thanks in advance for your help.

Chris

Hello Chris. Welcome to my Gas Appliances topic and the Do-It-Yourself Web Site.

Dryer conversion info in this thread. Manufacturers web sites are in it also.

Retail appliance parts dealers can also help determine what the most likely possible problem may be. They will need the make, model and serial numbers.

Appliance parts dealers are an excellent source for original replacement parts and problem resolving matters. Dealers are listed in the phone book under appliances.

Be sure the electrical power to the appliance is turned off, before attempting any repairs. Always check for gas leaks whenever a repair includes any connection of a gas part.

Read the existing questions on the subject of dryers. Doing so will quickly provide you with answers to questions & provide additional information on how to resolve the problem.
