Question about LG DLG5988 Stainless Steel Gas Dryer
DLG5966W ignitor will lid for a few seconds and the gas wont kick in then the ignitor turns off
This is commonly caused by a weak igniter. Over time, the igniter wears out and does not draw enough current to open the gas safety valve on the burner assembly. This is a designed safety feature that prevents free-flowing gas from entering the dryer cabinet without ignition. The following link explains how these igniters work:
I know the link is for a gas range, but the types of igniters and theory of operation is still the same. In effect, your igniter may have the appearance of working correctly by glowing, but it may be too weak for ignition to occur. I would recommend you try replacing the igniter.
If you have quesitons, or require additional assistance, please let me know before you rate the solution. I hope this helps you.
