Question about LG DLG5988 Gas Dryer
My DLG5988W will spin and run through its cycles, but it will not turn on the gas burner to create heat.
The "COOLING" light stays on..
No good service techs in my area and no one will even talk to me about it.
I'm pretty sure that the cooling light is always on and blinks when it is cooling. I look at my brother's and he has the EQ bar and it acts the same.

We're having the same problem after 11 years with the machine. I've ordered a replacement safety thermostat. Does anyone have any insights to add?
Saftey tstat is open
Highlimit tstat is closed
Ignitor at 300 ohms
When I jumper the saftey tstat, I get an ignition cycle, but the flame shuts down earlier than I'd expect. Could be a draft issue as the dryer is all pulled apart? Plan is to replace the safety tstat and then reassemble and see if it works.
Before I disassembled the dryer, I did find that draft was ok and there was a good amount of air coming out the external (outside the houes) exhaust pipe.

Got mine repaired.. They replaced the gas valve. Initial review is that its not drying as well as when it was new. I will use some more this weekend to confirm.
Interesting point on the washer....i have the same one i think (2277? - can't remember either). I've probably had the same issue with the bleach and never made the correction since I don't inspect the clothes before moving them over to the dryer. I will keep my eye out for that issue.
Never had the clunking noise though from the dryer.
Actually, I've been pretty happy with the two units until the dryer stopped heating...

I talked to LG today and they told me NOT to use dryer sheets because it turns off the sensors. Hope that helps.
