Question about LG DLG6952 Gas Dryer
LG model DLG 7188WM check filter light comes on when I turn on the unit and then it won't heat. Any help I check the filter and put it back in and it still won't work. I have cleaned the filter with hot water and soap and it worked one time. Then the next time it goes back to the same thing. Check filter and it won't heat.

I had exactly the same problem with my newish LG dryer. I deduced that the dryer's computer essentially needed to be rebooted. I pulled the plug for a minute or so, then plugged it back in. It works perfectly now.

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.

I just cleaned those sensors at the bottom of the filter, it worked like a charm. The dryer is now drying perfectly, I did not know you were not supposed to use fabric sheets with this dryer. Now I know, Thank you for the good information.

Clean the vent all the way to the outside.
The dryer will take 4-5 loads to reset the filter sensor.
Mahe sure the vent is not smashed behind the dryer.
