    i have the same dryer DLG2532W, it wont dry, i keep on reseting it every dry i do now, i believe i need to replace the flame sensor and or solenoid as described in one of these comments But my question is WHERE DO I GET A FLAME SENSOR & SOLENOID FOR MY LG DRYER ANYBODY?? please?

  • honeydoocp Nov 25, 2008

    Nice....works well. As you face the dryer the access panel is on the right. You need to pop out the round panel. You will need to get on the ground and look to the left to see the two wire leads and the button has a black top. Pushing it gives you very little reward when you push it, but it works.

    I would like to know what causes the manual reset thermostat to trip. Everytime I reset it, it trips again about 1 load later.

  • sewell3411 Mar 16, 2009

    Hi, I have the same problem. We can't access form the side only the Front.

    We have the front panel off but still can't find the reset button. looking in from the bottom right where all the wires are hanging. Still can't seem to see where everyone is talking about.

    Theres a round open tube looking thing with wires on both sides.

    Any help????? appreciated...:)

  • kfhjfghgf Mar 20, 2009

    Same problem. Tech was in when it was new three years ago, and did not help. Dryer does not dry. This must be a lemon model/design. For sale.

    The heat just stopped working. No error code and gas function is OK everywhere else in the house.

I had similar problem with my LG DLG2532W gas dryer:
1) Power on machine:
- Check Filter light comes on (LG says this is OK at start)
- Time lights have all dashes
- All Program cycle lights on (Air Dry up to cotton towels)
- This is all normal
2) Select program cycle (cotton towels for example)
- Check Filter light now goes off
- Time shows 58 minutes
- Dry Level, Temp Control, etc are set automatically
- This is all normal
3) Push start (this is where the trouble begins)
- The "drying cycle" light starts blinking (good)
- The dryer starts turning (this looks good...but)
- The ignitor (heating coil that ignites the gas) never heats
- The gas never comes on (because ignitor not on)
- No heat ever is produced.

Net result is dryer looks normal and runs, but there is no heat.
There is no error code...nothing to tell you anything is wrong.
Your only recourse is to call a technician because the manuals do not explain anything in any detail.

Thank goodness for the internet. I just needed the one clue that there was a reset button on the thermostat. That fixed my problem. Here is some more detail in case someone else is having this problem:

There are apparently two thermostats in the dryer. They are on the exhast tube that houses the burner element and the ignitor. One is on the top half of the exhaust tube near the dryer wall and the other is on the bottom half of the exhaust tube toward the center of the dryer. The one on the bottom half of the exhaust tube in the one with the reset button. Before pushing the reset button PULL THE PLUG ON THE DRYER OR TURN OFF CURCUIT BREAKER. The reset switch is between two wire leads that go to the thermostat and you will probably shock yourself if you try to push the button with the power on. If you open up the right side access cover on the dryer, then you can see the exhast tube. It is about 5 inches in diameter and (looking thru the right side access port), it will be sloping up from left to right as it runs from the front of the dryer to the back. You can see another exhaust tube further away from the port and lower down, but the one you are looking for is closest to you and higher up. If you look back toward the front of the machine (left), you can see two wires hanging down from the opposite side of the exhaust tube. The wires run to the thermostat which you can also see on a bracket standing off the exhaust tube. In between the two wire leads that run to the thermostat is the reset button.

Bottom line....pull off right access port cover, look in and left for thermostat hanging down off of exhaust tube. Press button between the two wires going to thermostat. It is a 3 minuite operation if you can get to the right side access port.

If you cannot get to the right side access port, you can pull off the fronf of the dryer and get to it that way, but it is much harder. You start by popping the dryer top by pushing in a putty knife between the top cover and front cover about two inches away from the top left and right edges of the machine. This is tricky and takes some fidling. I just pryed mine open the first time, but now I see how it is supposed to be done. After popping the top, you can take off the front of the machine. There are two screws on the top and then two more on the bottn half of the door. You have to open the door to get these two screws out. There are some wires going to sensors and switches that have to be disconnected.

It is much easier to access the thermostat thru the right side access port.

    Thanks for the tip!!!!!!!! it worked!!!!!

  • Jennifer Watters Jun 24, 2012

    For those who don't have a manual or aren't sure, the side access port is the small circular cover at the bottom right when you're looking at the right side of the dryer. If you have to pull the dryer away from the wall be careful of the gas line. Also the lint vent may come unattached so be sure to reseat it when you put the dryer back (taking this opportunity to clean out any accumulated lint).

    Usually the dryer stops heating (i.e. the switch trips) because it overheats. Maybe too much too heavy wet stuff or there might be too much lint built up.

    Every appliance in my house is breaking one at a time and every repair is a bigger pain than the last. Thought the dryer would be no exception, glad I read this first, 2 minute fix. Thank you

    Glad I found you guys. My matching washer broke last week and I am still in the middle of repairing that. The dryer stopped today and I figured the universe was trying to tell me something. Instead I searched, found this info., pulled circle door off, hit reset and we are back in action!

Great job. I have dlg2532w that had the same problem.

Look here for the service manual (not too helpful - but diagrams process for removing front cover) http://136.166.4.200/contents/Laundry/DLE5932/DLE5932_Service_Manual.pdf

If you remove the front cover, from the front, look down to the right. you will see a tube running to the back (dryer vent tube). The thermostat is on the left side of that tube, about 7 o'clock position. There are two wires on a netal hanger assembly. The button is nestled up between them. Pushing the button is not dramatic. You can barely tell it has been reset.

    How do you reset the thermostat?

  • DannyDoo Jan 24, 2011

    Follow the instruction from solution # 3. If it keep failing after reset then you need to replace High Limit Thermostat. Here is the site where I bought my part.

There is a reset button on the thermostat which can be accessed from the front of the machine at the bottom right. It is hanging behind the ignitor etc. and is very tiny. MAKE SURE you either unplug or flip the circuit breaker before open the machine. You can open this machine by unscrewing the top from the back and sliding something thin under the latches at the fornt and then unscrew the door and remove the front. Or you can pay a repair man $75 to reset it for you.

My dryer is not heating and I can not find the reset button because I do not know what the thermostat looks like. I've opened the dryer and see a bunch of wires and the ignitor, but the thermostat I can't see to find or recognize it. I need some help idenitifying it.

Thanks!

If your reset button continues to trip it may be due to a 'dirty' machine. Take the machine out in the garage or some area outside where you can vacuum and blow out all lint. Clean it down completely. I did this after it kept shutting off the gas ignition and now it works just fine.

Posted on Nov 15, 2009

  • spearmonkey Feb 28, 2010

    To keep the reset button from tripping you need to completely clean out all lint and dust buildup on inside of the dryer housing. I did this and no problem with the reset button shutting off the gas burner. Its a safety feature built in to the unit.

Model DLG2532W no heat, lint not an issue, circuit breakers OK, gas service OK. What could be the issue?


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. No Heat issue in dryer is usually caused due to three things mainly: Thermal Fuse, Wiring Harness and/or Heating Element. Start with checking the Thermal Fuse which ismounted inside the back cover panel to the exhaust duct and is mounted in white plastic housing. If thats fine then the Heating Element should be checked. Please do revert for further assistance.


Thanks
