Hi,

What you are going to need to do is get yourself a test meter to test the heating components...Could be a bad heating element....Thermal fuse.....igniter.

You could download the Service Manual from :-

If you have a different machine, let me know the Model so that i could provide you with the Service Manual.You need to be good at electronics to fix this.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Our dryer is a little over a year old. Everything seems like its running ok except for the fact that there is absolutely no heat. Any ideas?


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

It will not heat up, 2 and a half year old gas dryer works perfectly just no heat


LG gas dryers have a manually resettable high limit thermostat on the burner assembly. It is near the igniter and is about the size of a dime with two wires attached to it. There is a pin in the center of it which can be pushed in to reset the thermo. It usually trips due to a poor vent (poor air flow, causes excessive heat build up at the burner). Eliminate any flexible ducting, make vent as short and straight as possible, and clean out lint in vent pipe and at the exterior vent hood. Make sure the exterior vent hood has a full 4 inch distance the flap can move (not the two in low profile type) or is one of the multi louver types. You will have to take the front of the dryer off to get to the resettable thermo. (make sure the dryer is unplugged when the front is off)
