I had the same problem with my dryer.  I bought a brand new house and the problem was with the house and not actually the dryer.  I had the LG service people come out and look at it.  The dryer duct on the outside of the house was getting stuck and not opening.  We had to actually trim the metal so it would open.  With it being stuck closed, it would send the heat right back to the dryer and the sensors would tell it that the clothes were dry.
Hope this is helpful!

Hi jillsimons,
If you have had two new dryers not heating it really sounds like it may not be a dryer problem but a home problem. I would first make sure you have the correct amount of voltage to the machine. It will require 220-240 volts to operate correctly. If one leg you your breaker is kicked or you have a blown fuse in your breaker box then your dryer will only be getting half the voltage it requres to operate. It will run but it will not heat. Secondly if you do infact have the correct voltage then this could be the only other possibilty.
The dryer vent would either be to long or blocked off. This will cause the dryer to blow its thermostats and the dryer would then stop heating until the thermostats are replaced.
I am sure one of these will solve your problem. So check your breaker box, kick them off and back on then see if you get heat. Then check your vents. If they are blocked clean them out and get you some thermostats. Or call for service, since the appliance is new they will not charge you for a service call. Atleat I would'nt. Have a great day and good luck to you, I really hope this was helpful to you. MCA0824@aol.com

Dryer starts then stops 10 seconds later for 1 minute then starts again


You dryer has several "overheat thermostats" located at various places inside your machine.
They are to prevent fires caused by overheating.
I suspect one of them is defective, or you have another problem which is causing one to shut your dryer off.
The dryer is shutting off to prevent a fire.
Be blessed

I have an LD LG DLG5932W gas dryer. It is not heating. I removed the front of the dryer and got it running. I can see the glow plug glow and the flame starts but only for maybe 5 seconds and then goes out....


Well for starters VERIFY tons of air flow OUTSIDE of the building. To test, pull hose from back of machine, turn on and form opinion of air volume. Then hook back up, turn on machine, go outside and see if you have similar air flow. Commonly there is a restriction. This will cause thermal limiters to stop the heating.

Runs but will not heat. Power outages in area over last few weeks.


If the dryer was running during an outage, even with a very brief flash there usually is a power surge when it comes back on. If everything else seems to work okay it's possible that the heating elements got fried. You can check them with a voltmeter. Also check to seek if the dryer has overlaod protection. Most have a reset. One other thing that could happen, the breaker is defective. That you can check at the back of the dryer where the plug cable attaches to the dryer.

Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

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.
