My LG DLE5977W electrical dryer won't heat

I unplugged my dryer and when I plugged it back in it won't heat. Everything else works fine on the dryer, just isn't hot anymore. Any thoughts?
Thanks!

    Thanks! Ridiculously, I ended up just unplugging it and plugging it back in and it works now, but we'll see if it keeps on trucking. I appreciate the help, though!

Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.



if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....



If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

LG DLE5977W electric dryer hums when attempting to restart


This is usually the motor but not always. Remove the belt. Check for obstructions in the blower fan housing. Manually rotate the shaft of the motor.
If the motor is very stiff, or impossible to rotate manually, and the blower fan housing is clear, you need to replace the motor. If the motor rotates freely, run the motor momentarily with the belt removed and the blower in place. If the motor runs fine with the belt removed, there may be a problem with the idler pulley or the clothes drum. Try to rotate the drum by hand. If it is very difficult to move, correct any problem with the rollers, pulley, rear bearing, then reassemble the dryer and try it again. If the motor hums but doesn't rotate on its own even with the belt removed--yet you can turn it freely by hand--you usually need to replace the motor or the motor start capacitor.

Thumping sound from loose drum


Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
If you have a front loading machine, Unplug the dryer, remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If they don't then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve you noise problem.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

LG DLE5977W dryer trips circuit breaker


You could set the dryer to manual dry and then no heat and see if the result is the same. If it runs then, you have a short in the heating system somewhere. If it still kicks out the breaker, you've got even worse troubles. Most likely an electronic board, and what ever caused it to go, like maybe still a heating system issue. I*d suggest calling a qualified service tech for this one. In the USA, you can find one at http://www.lge.com/us/support/repair/support-repair-provider-lookup.jsp
