    Shorter run then again about four times then it won't run at all unless I let it sit for ten min.. Then it starts all over again.

Hello Richard;


My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

You have asked a loaded question. If I had a model number I could better help you.

So, let me give you the probable causes:

1.) Your dryer air distribution manifold is plugged. If your sensors do not pick up air flow you unit will shut down.

2.) You could have a bad ignitor. Although, the ignitor glows red it may be worn and not have enough power to open your gas valve.

3.) The problem may be your thermal sensor. If this is bad your unit will shut down.

I can help you fix your dryer. Send me the dryer model number, which is on a label on the machine when you open the dryer door.

I will step by step walk you through the diagnostics and we will fix your dryer together

    Ritchard; I am sorry, I am really tired tonight. I am going to have to answer you question in several comments. I suspect you have a blown thermal fuse. Yes, lets replace the thermal fuse, But what caused the thermal fuse to blow. We are going to have to remove the top cover control panel and front cover to get to it. With regret I am so tired from work. I will tell you the procedure tomorrow.

I have an LD LG DLG5932W gas dryer. It is not heating. I removed the front of the dryer and got it running. I can see the glow plug glow and the flame starts but only for maybe 5 seconds and then goes out....


Well for starters VERIFY tons of air flow OUTSIDE of the building. To test, pull hose from back of machine, turn on and form opinion of air volume. Then hook back up, turn on machine, go outside and see if you have similar air flow. Commonly there is a restriction. This will cause thermal limiters to stop the heating.

Unit begins to work correctly and after it runs a little and gets hot it cuts off. After 5 or 10 minutes it begins to run again. Does this often. Any ideas?
