Customer Question

Hello,
JA: Hi. How can we help?
Customer: I have a Whirlpool gas dryer model number GGQ8858JQ0. I am not a technician, but am a mech engr and handy with tools. The dryer stopped heating [it is about 16 years old, I am told]. Have replaced: the igniter, sensor, high level thermostat, and the two coils. Thought that would do it. Drum turns but the igniter does not glow. Believe that power is not getting to the igniter [have not checked with multi-meter]. Have reviewed many utubes, and believe that next step should be to check fuse [Where is fuse located on my dryer?]. How do I check for power going to igniter? All help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Glen Moulder

The fuse is number 59 in the diagram at the link below. It is mounted on the blower housing. Can you test it for continuity?
