LG Trom gas dryer dlg5988B got under water 10 inch. The motor is running, just the gas heater does not burn. Computer is working right. Any idea?

Take top off, start drying cycle and see if you can see an orange glow on bottom right front of unit-the Glow plug igniter. If it glows, then you have a different issue. If no orange glow, replace igniter.

Why heater coils glow?

It sounds like you're describing one of two things. The hot surface ignitor in a gas-fired furnace, or the resistive heat strips in an electric furnace.

The hot surface ignitor in a gas-fired furnace lights the burners. This ignitor in modern furnaces serves the same purpose as the standing pilot flame did in older furnaces. It provides the required heat to ignite the gas at the burners. Without an ignition source, a gas-fired furnace cannot provide heat. When the ignitor is activated it will glow bright orange or yellow.

The resistive heat strips in an electric furnace actually provide the heat to a home or building. When the furnace turns on, the heat strips are activated and usually glow orange when they reach peak temperature. In almost all cases, the heat strips are not easily seen or accessed without removing covers or panels inside the furnace.

Have a LG gas dryer dlg7188wm....doesn't heat

Take top off, then start unit. You can see orange glow in about 10 seconds on front bottom right by looking down from the top if the glow igniter is working.

Kenmore Gas Dryer Model 75731 Dryer Won't Heat

The orange glow is the ignitor. If the ignitor is glowing but the gas does not light then the flame sensor may have to be replaced. If the gas ignites but does not stay on either the flame sensor or the coils are at fault.

No heat

Should be a cover about the size of a quarter on the front lleft bottom...pop off with a small screwdriver and start dryer....look inside and see if the glow bar lights up...if glow bright orange, probably good, may need gas solenoids or ignitor

Gas dryer

There should be a gas igniter, inside of the burner chamber, that will glow bright red before the gas will be allowed to flow. If the dryer model that you have has a flap on the front you will be able to observe this otherwise you will have to remove the front of your machine to check it. If you post back with your machine model number I will be able to assist you further.
