LG model DLG 7188WM check filter light comes on

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.

SOURCE: Dryer won't work, Check Filter light is on

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.

SOURCE: 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.

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.

SOURCE: the check filter light keeps coming ob to my lg

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.

Check to make sure that the thermal fuse is not blown. Small plastic piece with 2 wires coming off of it. Typically this is problem.

LG DRYER DLE2532W DISASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS


DLE2532W is an electric heat model. (a gas model would be a DLG......) To get a rear control LG dryer apart: Open door and remove two phillips head screws at the 5 and 7 o'clock positions. Use a putty knife to release the clips holding the top panel to the dryer front by pushing the clips in at the seam of the dryer top and front, a couple inches in from each side. Swing top back. Remove two phillips head screws at the top, allowing front panel to pull forward. Unplug drum light and door switch and drum sensor plugs, allowing front panel to be completely removed and set aside. Now, look at the burner area at the lower right. Behind the gas valve you will find a small (about dime sized) high limit thermostat on the left side of the burner cone. It has two wires attached and has a small pin in the center of it. (Only on gas models) Push the pin in.
Now, if that get's you ignition again, CORRECT VENTING ! Get rid of flexible vent material. (use only rigid aluminum vent pipe and elbows) Clean out vent pipes and outside vent hood. Outside vent hood should be the kind with a four inch flap for the opening, not a two inch flap. Tripping of the high limit thermo is almost always caused by inadequate air flow.

L G DRAYER , HEATER NOT WORKING


Had the same problem on a whirpool drayer. Get our multimeter and check which heat fuse is broken. Take that one out and throw it in the floor until you have conductivity again. Clean drayer vents and heater. This worked for me, good luck. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UuFQOuSlzlw

LG DLG 3788W not heating


can you look in one of the holes in the back and see if the inside glows orange after you turn it on? If it doesn't could be the igniter, if it does glow orange, clicks or clacks, and glows again 20-30 seconds later, click/clack and nothing, it's probably the gas valve. I'm going through the same thing with a new one and they had to order the valve and a new controller board in case it is bad too. If you are handy, have an electronic tester, and have the patience, go to http://136.166.4.200/contents/Laundry/DLG3788.htm for the service manual and disassembly instructions and see if you want to tackle the test flow for no heat. I just stumbled on the site.
