    why does it say cooling and won't heat up

  • theashes Mar 20, 2009

    exact same problem, cooling light always on.   I Always use manual because sensor shuts off when clothes are still wet, but even doing it manual it takes over an hour.  Serviced it twice nobody seems to think anything is wrong with it!  I hate this dryer!!!

    I have the same problem. My Dryer (DLG5988W) does not dry my cloth. And My Washer is smelly. I stop using them. We have been going to Laundry for the last several months. And my cloth smell good and cost me less than using my own LG dryer.

    I paid about $2100 for both dry and wash. These machine are junk. I will never buy anything with LG brand name.

The plastic piece that you push may be broken or the switch that it pushes may be broke. Sometimes you have to hold the start button for a few seconds before the actual start will take place.

How may belts on lg tromm dryer

The start button is a momentary start button. It energizes a relay type switch to keep power on. Try holding the start button in for awhile and do not let go. If the machine keeps running, then for sure, the relay type switch is defective and needs to be replaced with a new one.

My LG Tromm dlg5988w dryer won't heat. I am trying to reset the heat sensor but can't find it. I have removed the front cover but not sure exactly what I'm looking for.

Make sure you have 240 Volts going to the dryer. The motor runs on 120 Volts, but the element needs 240 Volts. If that checks out, you would need to trace the wiring using the wiring schematic. That could be fun.
