The reset button needs to be replaced.  Once it has tripped, it loses it's setting and will trip at a much lower temperature.  This is a standard procedure that LG is telling all their techs to do.

The valve resistance is 1995 ohms and the ignitor is 185.
*******************************************************************
Inspect the dryer venting from the rear of the dryer to the outside vent hood of the home.
If there's a restriction in the vent--the clothing in the dryer takes longer to dry.
When the dryer is functioning normally---the time required to dry laundry is determined by the *Sensor* located on the drum side of the lint filter housing and by the main control board.
When laundry is near dry--any Time Remaining on the control panel that is *not* needed will be eliminated---except for the last 6 minutes.
The final 6 minutes of any automatic cycle is for cooling down the laundry before the dryer ends the cycle.
If a dryer *counts down* to the last 6 minutes but the laundry is still not dry--the computer will allow the dryer to run until the laundry has dried or defaults (not drying within the additional time allowed).
Dryer vents that are longer than 8 feet with more than (2) 90 degree turns--can affect drying performance.
Setting the DRY LEVEL selector to *Very Dry* will solve most dryability issues. In homes with abnormally long vents--even the longer run time in the *Very Dry* setting is usually not sufficient to dry laundry loads.
Reducing the length of the vent or starting a second cycle becomes necessary to fully dry the clothing.
If a second cycle was started---only the amount of time that is needed to dry laundry will be used before dropping to 6 minutes and then the cycle will end with dry laundry.
*****************************************

LG gas dryers are more sensitive to venting length and air flow resistance. The gas burner can cause a rapid increase in temperature compared to an electric burner.
Rapid temperature rise in a gas dryer leads to premature burner shutdown (longer time required to dry laundry).
The gradual temperature increase of an electric element is more "forgiving" in homes where the dryer venting is less than ideal.
*******************************************

Problem:
The dryer has an auto dry feature which never fully dries the clothes so we wind up manually setting the dry time to an hour
Solution:
LG gas dryers are VERY temperamental in long vent set-ups. If fabric softener sheets are used in the dryer--clean the two stainless steel strips of metal on the lint filter housing with a SCOTCHBRITE PAD--scrub back & forth several times to remove the waxy residue from the fabric softener sheets. Most,if not all manufacturers do *not* recommend using sheets in dryers that have a moisture sensor (electrodes).
However--using a SCOTCHBRITE pad keeps the wax off those sensors which can be seen if looking *into* the dryer drum and at the lint filter housing.
If only *liquid* fabric softener is used in the washer--clean the dryer sensors once a month. Liquid softener also contains wax which can slowly accumulate on the dryer sensors from the laundry washed in the washer.
***************************************************************
Hold down on the 'More Time' and 'Less Time' buttons and press the 'Power' button. if it comes up with tE1 or tE2 you have a thermistor error.

I have a Kenmore 72602 dryer, my dryer starts fine, but after about a minute the burner turs off and there is no heat, What causes this? is it an easy repair


It is an easy repair. The sensor and ignitor are ok since it will work one time when it is cooled don. The problem is with the coils. They get hot and quit. Common failure on gas dryers.themobilian_150.jpg

Whirlpool gas dryer does not heat, Motor works drum to go around; timer seems to work also. Repair person said it was the controls on the motor; replaced motor but still have no heat. Cleaned out vent...


I do believe the repair man hosed you on the motor. Most of my experience is with electric dryers but I can try to shed some light on the subject. I would test the safety thermostat if it is open you can temporally short the leads together to see if it heats up. It is about $70.00 so you do not want to just swap it out, do not run for a long period of time if you short the leads out (Fire is Bad). Next check the Sensor on the burner unit which turns on the Electronic gas valve ($200.00 Ouch) or it could be a clog it the orifice. Do you smell Gas by the burner unit? Next is the Igniter which you should hear click. A volt meter is recommended to test the components and an Ohm Meter to test the Safety Thermostat. I wonder if your repairman even took his out of the truck.

Roper Dryer won't heat


check the upper and lower limit switches on the heating duct. they act like fuses and and pop if the go bad. to check. first unplug dryer then remove back panel. the heat tube should be on the right and have two disc looking things with two wires going to them. check top one first. pull wires off and with jumper wire connect the two wires together. now plug dryer in and check to see if it heats. if not check the lower one. do not run dryer for longer then i takes to see if coils heat up. if still no heat then u need to pull heating element off and check for an open in the coil.

No heat


mcwilliams if you pull the over off the front of the dryer at the bottom you can see the gas burner assy. Put the dryer on time dry and start the dryer, you should see a glow from the ignitor, then hear a click, then the heat come on. In the auto dry mode, the timer advances along with the dryness level. No heat, No timer advancing. If you don't see a glow, there should be a thermosat on the heater can, see if it is tripped. If so if it is resetable, reset then try again. You may have a bad ignitor.

Dryer won't heat


Since I just had a repair man out to look at mine, there are two screws--one at the front of each side just under the lid. When you remove them you can pop the top up. That exposes two more screws, one at the top of each side of the front assembly. Remove them, and pull the front off.
