I have an older Whirlpool LAG8871 model gas dryer that won't heat up anymore. It worked fine before but all the sudden it stopped. The dryer vents fine, but hot air is not there. I see where the gas is supposed to be ignited/heated but I don't see anything glowing as if gas is being igniated.

Could it be igniter is done for?

** Whirlpool gas dryer model LAG8871 **

I'm afraid I have no listing for such a model number to find out what design on gas system you're dealing with. The number you posted also looks too short.

Did you get the model number right off the appliance's model and serial number identification tag? That is the only reliable place the complete model number will be found. If not, you can find where to located that information at the following link:

- Model Number Tag Search

If you can supply that information, we'll see if we can suggest a course of action.

I'm afraid I have no listing for such a model number to find whether it is even a pilot or electronic ignition model. Maybe some of the general gas dryer information at the following link will help?

The link you provided containted the instructions I needed in order to check the pilot. My dryer did not have the "pilot" instructions, so that link was good enough to give me an idea of what to do. I'm sure if I had more experience with Gas Dryers it would have been quicker to fix it, but your tips did help in the long run. Thank you very much.
