In duct area there is a thermo switch. 1/4"x2" white in color. two wires are connected to it. This goes bad from overheating due to dirty duct work. This stops dryer from firing to ignite gas. Replace and you should be good. You can check all other thermo switches with a tester. Some are silver and round some are what I stated.

My gas dryer doesn't heat very well, if at all. Do I need to replace parts or are there ways do check and clean parts.


First i would clean the dryer vent. If the vent is clogged then the dryer cannot circulated the air inside the dryer. This will cause long dry times. If the dryer heats at first then doesnt heat anymore after about 10 min you probably need new coils

WHEN I TURN THE DRYER ON THE HEATING ELEMENT HEATS UP. THE GAS TURNS ON FOR 17 SECONDS THEN TURNS OFF.IN ONE MIN. THE ELEMENT HEATS UP AGAIN THE GAS TURNS ON FOR 7 SECONDS.


the most important think in a dryer is the vent that goes out side,if this is not clean the burner will keep going on and off,try this unplug the vent and then try it,if it works fine then you know its ,your vent clean vent,then put vent back on,all gas dryers have to be vented outside

Heat won't stay on, comes on for a minute and shuts off


you could have a blocked vent line,try removing the vent line from the back of the dryer,also clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,also if the ignitor is glowing but no gas you could have bad gas coils,part number 279834 but check to see if you have something blocked up from lint,the dryer should be cleaned out and blow out the vent line with a leaf blower once a year

Front load gas dryer lg model dlg 5988w does not heat


This can obviously be several things, but I would first check the small safety thermostat. On the gas models, there is a small pin sticking out of it which can be pushed back in to reset it. It is located on the heater housing and is only about the size of a dime, with two wires on it. This will trip out easily if your vent was not clean, or is long or restricted in some ways (like using flex ducting)
If you need more help getting to it, let me know and I'll give you more instructions.

LG Gas Stacking Dryer


Check the vent and make sure it is not plugged with lint. Make sure the vent hose is clear. The light is telling you something blocking the airflow. You might not be able to see it easily.
