LG tromm gas dryer. Filter is clean, duct work is clear. It is a long run of duct, cleared as much as possible. Looked inside while running. The glow comes on but gas doesn't ignite. However, it does not happen every time. It will work for a few loads, then back to same problem. Check filter light comes on also.

Re: several cycles to dry clothes
Rafbx in looking this complain over I got to thinking. You said the filter is clean. Have you tried running water over the filter to see if it will go thru? If not give that a try. Slow steady stream of water then put the filter under the water. It should go straight thru. If not then wash the filter with some detergent until the water goes straight thru. I have seen this before. Give it a try, you may be suprised.

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. 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.

Hi, I am using LG Tromm DLE2514 washer dryer. It 's running but didn't dried the clothes. I clean it's lint but still it's not working. The one thing i notice now is it's drying light is blinking and cooling light is turn on all the time during the cycle. So what's the problem with my dryer?
Hello. Unplug your dryer. Remove your vent duct hose and, holding it like a "U", take it outside and clean it out. While the duct is removed, inspect the dryer exhaust (where it goes into the duct) and the other end (where it passes through the wall). Clean and remove any debris that you find. Remove the lint filter and check for debris in this cavity as well. If you find and clear any debris, this may get you drying better.
There are other things that might be at issue, but this is the most common and most easily repairable. Please repost after giving this a whirl.....Operators are standing by!!!!
make sure that the vent system is clear all the way to the outside. I've seen bird nest in these vents as well as just plain lint build up.
You should feel alot of air coming out when the dryer is running.
ok there,first the clothes must come out off your washer well spun,or dryer will work extra hard/long.next you dry a load with out ducting to elimanate your house venting[you wont hurt a thing]most off the time thats it![house]if still bad and you know your dryer is cleaned out then its an electrical problem.will go ther after you check the above.God bless.please help with my ratings if i have be helpful,tom
The problem with the LG tromm dryers are seemingly two fold. 1. The dryer stops heating and drying the cloths. I found out AFTER HAVING IT SERVICED TWICE AND WAITING A MONTH FOR A NON ESSENTIAL PART. The problem turned out to be the dryer vent going from the wall to the outside was severly clogged. Once this was corrected the dryer worked great.
2. The second issue probably is a design issue in that a large amount of lint seems to get by the lint filter and ends up in the vent that the dryer is connected to and goes out side the house. In my case I have a long dryer vent imbeded into the wall to the exterior, in a shorter vent this probably wouldn't be an issue.
