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.
