It takes so long to fry with LG DLG2524 Gas Dryer

It appears that my dryer has a problem with temperature control. I tried normal sensor control and manual control with highest temperature. In the past, when working, the temperature is pretty high under normal control. However, it is just little bit warm when I stop to check inside. What do you think of the problem.

Thanks a lot.

If your exhaust hose or the grate on the outside of the house gets blocked with lint the gas only runs for a few seconds at a time and then goes to overheat shut off so the dryer never gets very warm.

There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...

Here are a couple of tips that I wrote will help you to figure out why your dryer will not run...

Not enough heat

You may need to adjust the air flow on your dryer vent.
When an LG dryer is functioning normally---the time required to dry laundry is determined by the *Sensor* located on the drum side of the lint filter housing and by the main control board.
When laundry is near dry--any Time Remaining on the control panel that is *not* needed will be eliminated---except for the last 6 minutes.
The final 6 minutes of any LG automatic cycle is for cooling down the laundry before the dryer ends the cycle.
If a dryer *counts down* to the last 6 minutes but the laundry is still not dry--the computer will allow the dryer to run until the laundry has dried or defaults (not drying within the additional time allowed).
Dryer vents that are longer than 8 feet with more than (2) 90 degree turns--can affect drying performance.
Setting the DRY LEVEL selector to *Very Dry* will solve most dryability issues. In homes with abnormally long vents--even the longer run time in the *Very Dry* setting is usually not sufficient to dry laundry loads.
Reducing the length of the vent or starting a second cycle becomes necessary to fully dry the clothing.
If a second cycle was started---only the amount of time that is needed to dry laundry will be used before dropping to 6 minutes and then the cycle will end with dry laundry.

LG gas dryers are more sensitive to venting length and air flow resistance. The gas burner can cause a rapid increase in temperature compared to an electric burner.
Rapid temperature rise in a gas dryer leads to premature burner shutdown (longer time required to dry laundry).
The gradual temperature increase of an electric element is more "forgiving" in homes where the dryer venting is less than ideal.

The dryer has an auto dry feature which never fully dries the clothes so we wind up manually setting the dry time to an hour
LG gas dryers are VERY temperamental in long vent set-ups. If fabric softener sheets are used in the dryer--clean the two stainless steel strips of metal on the lint filter housing with a SCOTCHBRITE PAD--scrub back & forth several times to remove the waxy residue from the fabric softener sheets. Most,if not all manufacturers do *not* recommend using sheets in dryers that have a moisture sensor (electrodes).
However--using a SCOTCHBRITE pad keeps the wax off those sensors which can be seen if looking *into* the dryer drum and at the lint filter housing.
If only *liquid* fabric softener is used in the washer--clean the dryer sensors once a month. Liquid softener also contains wax which can slowly accumulate on the dryer sensors from the laundry washed in the washer.

My Whirlpool GOld Ultimate Care II electric dryer is not drying well any longer. It is 5 years old and a load must be run 2-3 times to get it to dry. Please help.

it could be your heating element but if you use dryer sheets take your lint trap out and see how well water will run thru it it may need to be washed in hot soapy water hope this helps

Lg gas dryer not igniting/no heat

If your dryer is any of these modes here listed below. I'm sending you a repair manual to help you. I'm not sure of your model number but these dryers are basically the same problems, Igniters, temperature switch, solenoid coils or door switch interruptions I would focus on the solenoid exhaust blockage, high limit , electronic heat sensor first, Thanks, Sea Breeze click below

My LG Dryer timer gets stuck on 6 minutes everytime

We had this problem three times. First two times we just removed, cleaned and put back the moisture sensor (metal strips inside). The last time we did as well but it didn't help. We phoned to a service guy and he said unplug the power cord for 20-30 minutes. And it worked!

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.
