Dryer model DLE5955W is not heating. When drying the "drying" light flashes and the "cooling" light is on steady. I turned off, turned breaker off and back on. No improvement. Checked lint filter, all...

You have one of 2 problems. There is a power problem at the power cord or the high limit switch has tripped. You will need a qualified LG technician to diagnose your situation.
Good luck

Dle2532 lg dryer, cooling light is always on

I'll take a stab that you use dryer softener sheets. These will deposit a coating on the two metal sensor bars (about 4 inches long, very near the lint filter inside the drum) which prevents the sensor from "seeing" that the clothes are still wet, so the dryer jumps to the cool down portion of the cycle. Clean the metal bars off and it should work again. (note: the bars are not in the cycle if you choose time dry instead of using the automatic cycles)

If you can find the wiring diagram inside the rear service panel of the appliance, follow the circuit to identify the overload sensors. There are several internal temperature sensors in the heater circuit that could be open.

Also check that the vent duct, all the way out to the discharge grill outside of the house, is not partially restricting the airflow. Note the same for the lint filter on top as well. Any restriction to airflow will cause poor or no heating problems.

Check for a good discharge of air with everything hooked up, outside where the dryer vent discharges, while the dryer is operating.

Plase feel free to reply your findings, and if you have any additional questions.

Lint filter sensor cuts off machine within 5-10 minutes.

It sounds like you might think you are sending this to Siemans? You aren't, Fixya is a self help website, people just like you helping others. Some of us are Experts on various subjects, like dryers.

Dryers need airflow and this lint filter just works out that either the temperature is getting too hot, or there is not enough airflow.

Trouble spots are usually the following;

Exhaust hoses too long.
Sharp bends on hoses.
Birds nests in hoses. Happened to me twice!
Wet lint build up as the hot wet air hits the first bend.
Plastic concertina hoses are really bad for air flow. Use the aluminium ones that are almost smooth.

Or my guess in your case, is vent flaps that are not opening fully or blocked. The whole external assembly with flaps and tube should be changed about every 5 years

LG Dryer DLE5977B is putting out hot air,but clothes not drying. Check filter light is blinking. Nothing in lint filter. Checked entire vent system all the way outside. Nothing is obstructing it. ...

Go to and enter DLE5977B. With luck, you will be presented with a list of common replacement parts and may be able to view a generic LG video showing disassembly. From this information, you may be able to pinpoint the cause of lint backup into your dryer.

Dryer overheat and stoppping too soon

Yes, dryer sheets can cause a build up on the sensors and the lint filter. Clean the metal contact strips off (just inside the door) with alcohol or windex and use a toothbrush and a little soap to scrub the lint filter. With the build up you don't get proper airflow and it won't dry right. Also, stop using dryer sheets or be sure and clean the cotacts and filter about once a month.

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.
