Question about LG DLG5932W Gas Dryer
My cloths have a kind of burnt smell to them after every cycle.It seems to be getting worse with time.
You may have lint build up inside your burn chamber. Un-plug. Remove the top and the two screws inside the bottom of the door opening. This will allow you to lean the front back and access the door switch. unplug the switch and remove the wiring from the plastic clips. Set the front aside and remove the lint trap and the two screws securing the duct to the fan/frame. On the right side of your unit as you are facing it look using a flashlight you can see the burn chamber. It should have burnt lint inside if this is your smell. Using a shop vac and the smallest tools you have reach in and vacuum out this chamber and all the areas around it. Be very careful when vacuuming out the chamber not to disturb the flame sensor on the left side. This small piece sits in front of where the flame comes out and you don't want to move it. After clean carefully re-install your parts being careful to get the felt seals in place. If you felt seals are damaged you will get lint in the burn chamber again and the smell will come right back.
