Have a gas whirlpool dryer, It is not drying tub stays cold. Could it be the ignighter or coils
Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX you for choosing our service again.

When you start it, if it lights once then goes out and will not light again for a long period of time replace the coils. If it does not do that and even if the igniter glows there is a good chance it is not glowing brightly enough to cause the valve to open to let gas in, in this case replace the igniter.


Thanks,
Barry
