Unplug the dryer. Disconnect the vent hose from the wall and clear any lint etc. from the opening. Anything clogged with lint will continue to cause the heating element to "trip" for safety reasons.
Open the top by pressing in on the hidden metal clips on the right and left front (there is a small gap below the top section) Use a putty knife or screw driver to press in on the clips. Lift up like a car hood and then prop it up while you're working. Next open the dryer door. Remove the two screws on either side of the lower opening. Now lift the front up and out, set off to the left side as it is still connected by a wire. Look into the lower right side of the dryer with a flashlight. The reset button is located between the two wires that attach to the outside of the cylindrical drum at the 7 o'clock position. You need to be lying on the floor so you can reach your hand in. It is about halfway into the dryer. Press the button. Now reassemble the dryer before you start it up again. For a gas dryer - let it run and you should hear it "fire" up within a minute and the heating will begin.

Several things can be the problem.
Is 220v present @ the outlet?
Heat element?
High limit thermostat?
Main computer?
Bad dryer cord? Ect...

Proabably time for a service call.

I have an lg 5988 dryer, only will stay heating on delicate cycle. any other cycle I have to reset, by pushing the button on the sensor on the exhaust inside back of dryer. I replaced that sensor 3 ti


Sounds like a airflow problem. Either the House vent is clogged or some major build up in the blower or lint housing.

Remove the vent hose from the dryer and see how well it is blowing, then reconnect the vent and check outside, it should be close to the same.

House vent should be short and strait as possible, and metal venting only.

You will need to disassemble the top panel, the control board, the front panel and the drum assembly to get access to the reset switch. LG has posted that once the button has tripped, it is recommended that it be replaced rather than constantly resetting the button.
Good luck.

Inoperable Whirlpool dryer, Model LER7646EQ2


Good day,
Sorry, no reset you can get to. There is one embedded in the main motor itself, that if the motor draws too much current, and/or gets too hot.
If you shut the machine off for a 24 hour period, then it will many times appear to run normally again, but it's the motor getting weak.

It's usually a slow progressive problem, and if you choose,you can, at least for the short period use the machine by either lightening the loads, or spread the loads over a longer period of time.
Eventually the motor will need to be replaced.

Have a LG gas dryer dlg7188wm....doesn't heat


Take top off, then start unit. You can see orange glow in about 10 seconds on front bottom right by looking down from the top if the glow igniter is working.

LG model DLG5932W dryer wont ignite


Check your venting. Eliminate all or as much flex ducting as possible, replace with rigid or semi-rigid aluminum. Make sure outside vent opens a full 4 inches, not just two inches (or that louvers are clear of lint build up), and clean out all vent pipe of lint. Make vent as short as possible, with as few turns as possible. You may have to reset the high temp thermo again also until vent problem is corrected.

LG DLG7188WM runs but no heat


I believe that it does. All of these parts should be functioning properly in order to dry the clothes well.

Not properly drying


If you remove the front cover hitting the reset switch is rather easy. However I did that the other day and only got 1 load done before it tripped again.

I just picked this dryer up used from a buddy the other day and am already having trouble. Also... It runs very loud. How loud is yours complared to the washer?
