Gas Dryer - Not Drying Clothes - Whirlpool LGN1000HQ1


I have a Whirlpool Gas Dryer, LGN1000HQ1. The dryer turns on and works, but it is not drying the clothes. I cleaned all the lint on the inside as well as in the vents.

Any ideas? Maybe a sensor or a fuse?

Hello Steve and Welcome into my Gas Appliances topic.

Several possible causes. Start by checking the HSI (Hot Surface Igniter). The igniter must be glowing to start the process.

All the possible causes and solutions can be found in the dryer help sticky note. Also in prior asked questions and the answers within them.

Dryer help here:

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 or services. Always check for gas leaks whenever moving the appliance and/or a service or repair includes any connection of a gas part.

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