Ok, someone gave me a Whirlpool gas dryer. How do I know if it is set for LP(propane) or natural gas?

Also, is gas more eficient than propane for drying?

Hi,

**How do I know if it is set for LP(propane) or natural gas?**

Should say right on the dryer...a tag or sticker is added to the dryer when we convert it to LP from NG. The sticker -may- be right on the gas burner itself or beside the model/serial tag.

**Also, is gas more eficient than propane for drying?**

LP or NG will still make the dryer get to it's normal temp of approx 140ºF...both should be close if not almost the same.

Couldn't tell you, need to check with WLP for that...the parts breakdowns lists 5 different orifices used but none of the sizes just the part#'s.
