Question about LG Dryers

LG DLG 7188 WM will not heat

Cleaned the vent. There was a lot of debris. Installed new vent hose. When I start the cycle, I can hear the gas ignite. It sounds like it burns for about five seconds and then shuts off. Could this be the thermal fuse? Igniter? Regulator? Is this something I can figure our and fix myself?

SOURCE: After a few heating cycles the burner does not ignite

The problem you are describing is usually associated with a bad gas valve coil. The dryer runs normally until it gets hot, then starts making a strange clicking noise. After it cools down, the dryer runs normally again. The gas valve coils (there are two of them) usually run about $20 a piece. I recommend replacing both of them at the same time just to be sure. I hope this helps.

If the glow bar is cycling off and on the glow bar works and the black box on the side of the vent are working, Either there is no gas to the dryer, doubltful but something to check or, You need a gas valve.

I would check for gas first, do you have other gas appliances? and all are functioning properly? Check the gas line and make sure someone hasnt accidently turned off the gas. If it is none of these you need a gas valve.

Go to repairclinic.com or partselect.com with your Sp Q model number, or the part number off the gas valve, it could be a five digit 58**** or 51***** number. Get you best price. Im guessing 80 to 100 Amercian

When replacing the gas valve, unplug the dryer first, turn off the gas, remove the front panel, two screws lower front panel, you will need a crescent wrench for gas line of side and a 5/16 nut driver remove wires. Now remove the orfice from the old gas valve and make sure you install it on the new valve. Is this a Natural Gas or LP Gas dryer?, If it is LP make sure you make the conversion to LP. Ask if you have more questions on this.

install gas valve, tighten gas line turn gas on check for leaks! with a bubble solution, start dryer and make sure dryer works properly.

best of luck

SOURCE: Kenmore Dryer only lights gas sporaticly

replace the igniter. The ignitor is the most comon problem with gas appliances checking continuity does not tell you if it is bad or not it has to draw a certain amount of amps to open the gas safty valve and the is no safe way to check this on most gas dryers

Carburator leaks gas when cycle is started or running from what looks like vent hose?


Sounds to me like your float valve is obstructed by some debris. This is causing it to stay open and leak fuel. Better it leaks to your vent hose than it leaks in your engine and contaminates your oil.

You need a proper carb cleaning. Not some run in the gas tank sh*t. If the tank wasn't full when parked, chances are there is rust in the fuel system to get this out you need to disassemble the carburetor and thoroughly clean it.

Try not to ride the bike til you do this. It's a fire hazard.

Dryer takes too long to dry clothes. Heating element is working because clothes are hot but it takes almost 2 dry cycles to dry clothes.


It sounds like you're lacking air flow. I'm sure you're cleaning the lint trap / filter - but have you clean the VENT HOSE / PIPE?

The 4 in vent hose is supposed to be cleaned annually. If you have the flexible vinyl hose, replace it with either steel, aluminum or flexible aluminum tubing instead. Once you've removed the vinyl hose, it will collect a lot less dust and can be cleaned without worry of puncture.

A typical dryer vent brush.

Make sure there's no obstruction to the flap outside, too. Once cleaned the dryer operation should be restored to new again.

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply - thank you.

Sounds like the dryer coils are failing. The dryer may heat up in the beginning but once it runs for a few minutes the coils fail to open and let gas in. Check to see if you can hear the flame ignite after it has been running for a little while.

Gas smell from outside vent, but heats up fine, it is a maytag performa gas dryer. the igniter was just replced and i checked all connections with soapy water


It may not be burning clean. First thing you have to do is make sure that you dryer is vented right.
  1. make sure the vent pipe is not kinked, bent to sharp.
  2. Not full of debris.
Venting is important if it is abstructed then the gas backs up..

you may need to adjust the flame of the burner.
