Had sam problem with very little heat. It was because the vent was full of lint and restricted out put. pull off the duct and make sure it is clear and the outside vent door opens to allow flow.

Take a 2 inch putty knife and slide in the separation gap just above the door.  There are 2 catches on each of the panel about 3 inches from each side.  Push in to release the catch and the top panel will pop open.

SOURCE: LG Gas Dryer #DLG3788W will not heat. Checked the

I am not a repair professional. I am a 78 year old man who has been making his own repairs for about 50 years. So the washer or dryer ID doesn't mean much to me. I came to fixya looking for a schematic for an really old AM/FM radio and found that more than 4,700 people were asking for help with a washer repair. I recently had a washer repair of my own and at that time I found an excellent video which showed me how to take my machine apart. This video made it possible for me to do my own repair. If you are repairing a dryer or a front load washer I suggest you
go to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good step by step trouble shooting and repair information on both washers and dryers as well as other appliances. If you have a direct drive top load washer and need help taking it apart this video is an early christmas present. I was so impressed with it that when I saw all these people needing help, I wanted to tell them about it. If you look at the back of your washer and the panel is solid (no small inspection plate to remove which would indicate you have a v-belt drive) chances are you have a direct drive and this video is just what you need. You can see it at www.acmehowto.com You will probably still need help in determining what the trouble is and how to fix it. After viewing the video or if you have a v-belt drive rather than a direct drive, I suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good
trouble shooting and repair nformation on most
washers and dryers. I think you'll find what you need
there. Don't worry about the timer, they hardly ever
go bad. Good luck with it. If I have helped you, please rate my advice on fixya.

The igniter or the gas valve. Both are on the bottom right in front of the machie. You will need to remove the lid and front panel to get to them. To test them take the door switch out of the door, plug it back in, and have someone hold it while you watch the igniter. It should glow almost white. If it does not check to see if it is getting power, If it is not getting power your might have an issue with the control board. If it is getting power replace it.

LG Tromm dryer dryer number DLG3788W is not heating. it spins and works perfectly accept it stopped heating yesterday. I took off the vent hose yesterday and cleaned out all the lint there, it wasnt too...


Either there is a fault in the power supply to the heating coils, or the heating coils have burned out. A multimeter will come in handy at this point to check continuity across the terminals to the heating coils, and to test current supply to the coils. Be very very careful since you are dealing with 220 volts. If you do not feel comfortable doing it yourself, call an appliance repairman.

Not getting heat from dryer


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.


check out this electric no heat tip...
