    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.

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 dryer wont heat and i don't know how ignite the pilot


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...
