First reset circuit breaker since it's 220 set set up is possible to have tripped one of the breakers not likely but possible. Next if that does not do it you need to buy an ohm meter and open the port to get to the heating coil so you can test the heater wire putting it on ohms and with it unplugged put the ohm meter leads on the two terminals and see if you get a reading, if the needle moves it's something else if it don't it's the heating coil, plus there is other things to but that wheeI'd start. but if your squeamish with 220 then call a appliance man, anyone worth his SALT Will have it fixed by the time you went to the store and bought the meter took it apart and replaced it.

My dryer Lg Tromm model number DLG5988 is blowing cold air, changed sensor bars still not drying- also the check filter light stays on and it's in cool mode and dry keeps blinking, what could it be?


sensor bars just measure humidity so dryer knows when close are dry, so will have no effect on heating. the check filter light is just a reminder, not connecter to any sensor or anything. could be several issues: gas valve solenoids, thermal fuses, etc. but for a quick try that might work, try just unplugging the dryer, push and hold the on button for about 20 seconds and then plug back in and see if the dryer is reset. works sometimes. good luck

Clothes aren't getting dry


Check your vent hose and where it exits the building, clean away all lint anything blocking the vent cap or in the vent hose. Remove the vent from the back of the dryer and make sure it is all clean and clear there and make sure the betn is not kinked up when putting the dryer back into it space. Now before you blow me off, if any of this is true for your dryer the heat will build up and trip the thermostat causing it not to heat properly and the blower wheel can not move the air to collect the moisture and remove it from inside the dryer. Also, any sagging vent line can collect moisture which turns to a puddle of water in the line and this to will not allow your dryer to dry the clothes. Good luck I hope I have helped you.

Dyer will not heat


Sounds like an open heating element issue. If you have two sensors for internal temps, the chances of both going bad at same time are remote.
Locate the element wiring and disconnect from circuit and do a simple continuity test. Chances are that it is burnt out or open.

Our Dryer runs but is not expelling heat. How can we fix this issue? The dryer only blows cold air. Thank you


check the vent line if clogged it will cause the sensors to trip off way too soon . that will not allow it too make any heat. check up inside the dryer as well if the vent is way clogged with lint the dryer will too. the vent should be cleaned twice a year

My lg dle0442w wont dry clothes blows cold air


Sometimes it is the heater element in the dryer. Other times the main circuit breaker has tripped one leg. Some 220V-230V breakers have two trip switches that are tied together. One half of the breaker runs the motor and the other half operates the heater. A defective breaker can also cause the problem.

Then it started loud pounding noise, which a lot of people seem to have the same problem, then our sensor went out and we had to dry the clothes 5-10 x's...now crack in stainless steel drum and is chewing up all our expensive clothes!

Whirlpool Dryer blows cold air when starting no heat


Did the fuse blow out? If so then the heating element is shorted out. This happens frequently when they fail. If the fuse is blown check the condition of or change out the heating element.
