Question about LG DLE7177 Dryer
I have had my GE dryer for 1 1/2 year. Its had always been good. A small problem with it is that when you close the dryer door it'll automatically starts without switching it on. Its good but bad b/c you have to switch it off all the time. It'll stop when the cycle is done. How can I fix this problem.
My second & bigger problem is that after my moving yesterday, it quit producing heat. I did have to buy a 4 prong plug to replace the 3 prong. The dryer is spinning except with no heat. How can I fix this problem?
How do the wires connect on a GE dryer for a door Switch?

First, replace the door switch. Second, check the wiring of the new cord. It should be as follows:
Dryers come with a wire or metal strap connecting the center "neutral" terminal to the frame of the dryer. When using a four wire power cord, take that wire or strap off the frame. (it can be discarded or better yet, in case this dryer needs to ever be converted back to a three wire cord) connect the frame end of the wire / strap to the center terminal of the power block. Now, Green (ground) wire goes to the dryer frame, White (neutral) goes to the center terminal, and the Red and Black (both "hot") wires go to either outside terminal. (one to each)
Third, if you still have no heat, make sure there is strong air flow out the vent outside the house when the dryer is running. If all that is good, check for 240 volts to dryer. (dryers can run the motor on 120, but need 240 to heat). Comment back (including model number) if you have further questions.

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.
