Question about LG DLG5932W Gas Dryer
I HAVE BLINKING CHECK THE FILTER LIGHT. DRYER BLOWS COLD. TRYING TO SEE IF THERE IS SOMETHING I CAN RESET, OR CHECK THE HEATING ELEMENT. BUT CAN'T GET DRYER APART!!! I have a gas LG dryer model DLE2532W that will not ignite the burner. The solenoid does not open. Does this igniter have to glow before the solenoid opens the gas valve? Thank you
DLE2532W is an electric heat model. (a gas model would be a DLG......) To get a rear control LG dryer apart: Open door and remove two phillips head screws at the 5 and 7 o'clock positions. Use a putty knife to release the clips holding the top panel to the dryer front by pushing the clips in at the seam of the dryer top and front, a couple inches in from each side. Swing top back. Remove two phillips head screws at the top, allowing front panel to pull forward. Unplug drum light and door switch and drum sensor plugs, allowing front panel to be completely removed and set aside. Now, look at the burner area at the lower right. Behind the gas valve you will find a small (about dime sized) high limit thermostat on the left side of the burner cone. It has two wires attached and has a small pin in the center of it. (Only on gas models) Push the pin in.
Now, if that get's you ignition again, CORRECT VENTING ! Get rid of flexible vent material. (use only rigid aluminum vent pipe and elbows) Clean out vent pipes and outside vent hood. Outside vent hood should be the kind with a four inch flap for the opening, not a two inch flap. Tripping of the high limit thermo is almost always caused by inadequate air flow.
