Question about LG DLG5932W Gas Dryer
We have a DLG5932W LG clothes dryer. It is about 3 years old. The dryer runs, but there is no heat. Any help is much appreciated!
On a gas dryer that will not heat, the first thing to check is the ignitor. The ignitor should heat up and glow orange if it is working. If not, the ignitor is defective. The next thing to check are the gas valve coils. These are electrical solenoids that are located just above the gas valves. When energized, they open the gas valves and allow the gas to flow to the burner and be ignited. If everything looks like it is operating well, but the dryer is still not heating/drying properly, the next thing that I would consider would be a faulty high limit thermostat. Sure hope this helped and best wishes.

One of the easiest things to check would be if the high temp safety has tripped. If this has tripped, you may have an air flow problem which is causing the dryer to get too hot. A vent cleaning may be in order if this is the case.

On mine it was one of the electromagnetic actuators on the gas valve.
A very inexpensive part, that is unfortunately not sold separately. You have to buy the whole gas valve. The good news is you can return it if it was not the broken part, even if you have installed it.
I got it hear and have no complaints what so ever about this site:
