My LG gas dryer DLG5988W

My dryer when I turn it on, "hums" instead of turning on. The lights go on but it doesn't actually start drying or giving me an error code.
Lint filter is clean.
Thanks for any assistance

Makes a humming noise but doesn't turn


Try this, open the dryer door and hold down the door light switch. Turn on the dryer and press start.When you hear the motor humming, turn the drum clockwise with your hand to see if it will turn. If itruns, you have a bad motor and will need to be replaced. If it doesn't turn, something is jammedinside and you will need to disassemble the unit to find the jam.
Hope this helps.

I have a LG dlg5988w drying that just started making a banging sound. Are there rollers that need replaced?


yes the belt has a tensioner with a bearing and a roller surrounding the bearing
the bearing can be locked up which will put flat spots in the roller m,aking the banging noise
Sound horrifying at times doesn't it?

LG Gas Dryer (Model # DLG5988W) is not heating, the gas is not turning on. When the dryer is turned on the ''Check Filter'' light comes on and when switching to a drying cycle the ?Cool? light is always...


The dryer has a resettable SAFETY thermostat located on the flame tube inside the dryer. LG recommends replacing the Safety and High limit thermostats if the Safety thermostat is tripped. The dryer Glow bar igniter could be bad as well as the gas valve or Main computer. Time to have the dryer serviced by a qualified LG tech. LG has factory service tech in most large cities. Give them a call at 1 800 243-0000.

Hope this helps.

LG DLG5988W Gas Dryer (NO HEAT)


I'm pretty sure that the cooling light is always on and blinks when it is cooling. I look at my brother's and he has the EQ bar and it acts the same.
