    I have my electric dryer all ripped apart with the same problem. I don't see any reset button, switch or even a fuse. Any suggestions?

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.

    Your explanation was very helpful. I have read many explanations but this one was the most specific: "The reset button is located between the 2 wires that attach to the outside of the cylindrical drum at the 7 o'clock position." If you cant find it, use these directions. I was using a mirror, flashlight, feeling all around. No luck until I read your post.

    Perfect explaination!!! Was looking for an hour before I came here. Frustration level was almost a 10. Fired right up when tested. Made sure I took a good vacume to everything before I put it all back together. Thanks

You can also lay the dryer face down, unplug it and turn the gas line off. Now remove the exhaust vent and there is a single screw securing the exhaust tube to the dryer. Once that tube is removed grab a flash light and look into the hole. Using a vacuum hose or a long lint brush remove all of the lint in the cavity. Once the lint is removed look to the left and you will see the reset button located between two wires. It sort of looks like an igniter on a gas grill; press it and then replace the tube and the vent hose. Turn the gas back on stand the dryer off and plug it in. All of the excess lint clogged the sensor so the reset button tripped as a safety measure. Note you should check for lint often and repeat process as needed, as dryer lint is very flamable

    This was the easiest way to access the reset button. However, the button didn't seem to do anything. No click. Nothing. It just felt loose.

If one of the two thermal fuses are blown you will not get heat.  Thermal fuses blow (and are not resetable, they must be replaced) when the machine gets too hot.  Often this is caused by not enough air flow through the machine.  Check and make sure your exhaust vent is not clogged.  Clean it the best you can to get all the lint, dead mice, bird nests, etc. out.  Also make sure air is blowing out of the machine when it is turned on.  If not you have a blower problem.

K There seems to be NO BREAKERS anywhere near my heat coils on my DLE2532W electric dryer. Just looks like 2 types of relays?

Posted on Jul 28, 2010

The fuse can be reset. With the front off, reach into the lower right with your hand. It will be cramped in there. On the lower right side of heating element you will find 2 wires going to a small breaker. There is a reset button on there that you need to press.  It may take you several minutes to find this, as it's not easy the 1st time.

Good luck.

LG DLG2251W won't heat up


Your post is from 2008 but I am having the same problems with this dryer, same model. This is an LG problem, for crying out loud LG ---- GET IT FIXED. No more LG dryers for me. My $300 Kenmore works like a charm.

The first LG dryer they sent me I thought was a lemon. They came out and replaced the motherboard on the brand new dryer. They came out again and couldn't figure out why it wouldn't dry my clothes, and the second time they gave me another brand new dryer. Same problem with this one and all brand new perfectly clear ducts. Really?????

Google "lg dryer spins but no heat" on youtube - he explains how to get to the sensor and reset it, but still trying to figure out where to find it on my model. I can't believe I have to go through all of this with a $1000 machine!! Never ever again. Avoid LG dryers at all costs. It takes me HOURS to dry a load of laundry. Wanna throw a dry piece of clothing in the dryer for a few minutes to get the wrinkles out? hahaha think again. The heat will never come on even with the manual (non sensor) setting.

Again = AVOID LG DRYERS AT ALL COSTS. It's not worth the headache.

Dryer is not heating. Happened after exhaust vent was plugged. Is there a reset or thermistor that tripped?


There is a manual reset on one of the thermistats on a gas LG dryer. It is on the front left side of the heating element. There are two wires attached to the dime sized thermostat, and there is a small black pin in between the wires. Push the pin in to reset it. To get at it, you have to take the top off, then the control panel, then the front panel.

My LG gas dryer has had the thermostat sensors replaced and reset twice already, but after a few loads it stops producing heat. I have taken off the new exhaust outlet as I think the flapper may be...


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.

Not heating


The reset button needs to be replaced.  Once it has tripped, it loses it's setting and will trip at a much lower temperature.  This is a standard procedure that LG is telling all their techs to do.

LG Gas Stacking Dryer


Check the vent and make sure it is not plugged with lint. Make sure the vent hose is clear. The light is telling you something blocking the airflow. You might not be able to see it easily.
