    Default Whirlpool Duet Dryer won't dry--GGW9200LQ0

    Model Number: GGW9200LQ0
    Brand: other
    Age: 6-10 years

    Hi,

    This morning this 9.5 yo gas dryer Whirlpool Duet Electronic Gas Dryer (GGW9200LQ0) will produce little or no heat. There is the normal amount of air coming out the vent outside the house. Sometimes there is just a little bit of heat felt in the dryer. Other times no heat is felt in the dryer. Tought maybe it was a sensor issue as the dryer was turning off and indicating the load was dry. So, tried the 'timed' function--to no avail--didn't make a difference. Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Jon

    Hi Jon,

    Its your gas coils that are bad.

    Here's the gas coil kit for your model you can order here:
    Manufacturer part number 279834 is RepairClinic item number 3479
    279834

    Yes, the gas coils are mounted on your gas valve, it should be on the right side front after you remove your bottom access panel below your front door.(UNPLUG OR TURN THE BREAKER OFF TO YOUR DRYER BEFORE SERVICING)

    Its to the right of your lint duct assembly#45 here, your burner tube is #46, its in front of your burner tube:


    Here's the parts diagram of it, #13 & #14 is the gas coils:


    Just remove the #11 screw and the #12 bracket, then they pull up and off, after you remove the electrical connectors to them.

    Yes Jon,

    They allow the gas to flow through to the igniter, thus you get the flame, but over time they become weak and wear out and will shut the gas off the flame too quickly.

    The gas coils are the most common part to go out on ALL gas dyers.

    Thanks, Jake. That makes sense with what is going and and knowing, as you said, that these are the most common thing to wear out on a gas dryer. Thank you. Already ordered. Jon

    Thanks, Jake. That was it. 15 minutes to replace the gas solenoids and we are back in business.

    We've got a intermittent buzzing noise coming from the upper back (it seems) of the same unit. Sometimes it buzzes during a cycle and sometime it doesn't. Haven't noticed a pattern. It's been doing it for years and doesn't seem to affect anything, just annoying. Any ideas? I'll start another post...

    Good job, glad to hear the new gas coil kit fixed it.

    Can you tell if the buzzing noise is coming from inside your console on top back? Or just below it?

    If you push/pull the top console a little when it does that buzzing does it stop?

    The intermittant buzzing noise seems to be coming from the backside of the machine, but near the top. If I was facing the back of the machine, I would say it sounds like it's coming from the upper left of the back side of the machine.
