As always before you open it be sure to unplug the unit. i believe there are a couple of screws on the back to slide the top cover off. the cover will need to be pushed back then lifted up. from there there are two or four screws on the inside holding the front contol panel on. behind the control panel are four? screws that hold the top off the front cabinet on. then there are two screws inside the door just below the lint trap. when you take those off you tilt the panel forward and lift off. be carefull as the front is heavy and will fall forward if not braced. also be careful not to cut yoursefl when removing the wire harness for the door, as i have cut myself many time on the sheet metal, and yes it just pulls apart. after that you should be able to see the screws holding the ducting to the blower housing. before you do all this i tust you have already checked the outside vent to make sure there are no obstructions. if not and ther is good airflow the problem my be with a thermistor. is it electic or gas?

My LG electric dryer is not blowing any heat


Have you checked your circuit breakers to make sure they have tripped??
Look at the junction box behind the dryer where the power cord connects to the electrical system of the dryer. Open the panel and make sure that the connection is clean and tight. If it has any burn marks, you will need to replace the whole wire harness under LG's repair policy.
If these problems are eliminated, then you may have a problem inside the heating element or it's high limit switch which is inside the dryer and require disassembly.
Hope this helps.

Tip

Dryer Needs Cleaning


Dryers need to be cleaned out about 2 - 3 times a year or more often if needed. If it is taking longer for your clothes to dry it is most likely because your dryer is not venting properly. So, check behind your dryer and see if the vent hose is kinked,if it is then you will need to correct this problem as it will cause the long drying time. Another thing you need to clean out is the dryer vent hose as well as the dryer vent that comes out of your home,sometimes critters will build a nest in there because it is warm in the winter. If you are handy it would be a good thing to open up the dryer and clean inside as well. Too much lint inside the unit is a fire hazard. UNPLUG dryer before taking it apart!!!

run the dryer with the vent hose off, if it drys correctly then it is in the vent tube. The best way to clean the vent hose is with a leaf blower, now if it is not drying with the vent hose off then you will need to disassemble the dryer, and clean from the bottom of the lint trap back to the back of the dryer with a brush(paint) and a vacuum:

When I set the dryer to Heavy Duty and Very Dry setting which equates to 1:10 mins, my clothes are still very damp. This seems wrong. Thoughts?


Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance.
Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum.

Your dryer's heating element may be partially burned out. If it is, your dryer still heats, but at such a low temperature that it takes three or four times as long to dry the clothes. If the element is partially burned out, replace it.

What I would do is check for air restrictions inside and out. Clean the dryer good and then check the thermister for proper tolerances using this service pamphlet

LG Dryer takes way long to dry


Let's work together to get to the bottom of this problem. begin with these thoughts
;
It normally takes about 45 minutes for a dryer to dry a full load. If your dryer is taking more than an hour, check these.

Vent
Heating element
Internal ductwork
Cycling thermostat
Vent Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance.

Heating element Your dryer's heating element may be partially burned out. If it is, your dryer still heats, but at such a low temperature that it takes three or four times as long to dry the clothes. If the element is partially burned out, replace it.

Internal ductwork Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum, contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

Cycling thermostat Although this isn't a common problem, one of the thermostats that controls the temperature in your dryer may break and cause the dryer to heat poorly. If so, you need to replace it. The thermostat is usually a small, round, black device mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate is mounted to the internal ductwork with two screws.

Lg dryer not drying


Do not keep it higher temp unless bedsheets are inside.For normal clothes temp must be at normal level.If more steam remains inside then only clothes will remain damp.Look out for correct RPM.This problem comes due to drive belt also. Even it looks tight just replace blindly.Hope this will solve your problem.All the best to you.
