Question about LG DLG5932W Gas Dryer

1 Answer

I just moved and my LG dryer does not heat up.

Model DLG2524W The gas line is hooked up, the dryer runs but does not heat up. I had the gas company check the line and it is fine. The dryer runs but the clothes do not get dry, no heat, and the cooling button is lit up on the front of the dryer.

    Have you tried to run it on time dry? Also, you might try to run it a few minutes with no vent attached. (only a few minutes, as if there is combustion you don't want CO build up) Let me know what the results were.

I am sending you all the possibilities for your problem, check either of these causes ----and than let me know if it is solved----

Power from the house
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.

Heating element
Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.

Thermal fuse
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

LG DLG2524W gas dryer with check filter light on. Dryer will work but no heat. Totally vacuumed filter and filter area out. Opened cap on bottom side of dryer and vacuumed that out but still same thing....

It sounds like the high limit switch has tripped. You will need to disassemble the dryer to get to the switch to reset it. LG recommends replacing the high limit switch.

Lg dlg2524w runs and tries to heat but doesn't

Our electric did the same thing...techie guy said it was working fine, suggested I clear the dryer lint vent pipe which I tried but it was destroyed so I had to rebuild the whole line which took a day of messing around with the wall behind the unit, the ceiling exit hole and in the attic some. But Man!! it works great now!! All that heat and moist air has to go somewhere away from the machine, or it just goes back into your clothes. Super important. Good luck!
