My advice is to get a gas technician. There is a resettable thermosat on the heater bank that may need to be reset. Have a tech check it out though.

Does my lg tromm dlg5988w gas dryer have a pilot light that stay on all the time or only when u start it


Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes 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 differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check outthis electric no heat tip...

My LG Tromm dlg5988w dryer won't heat. I am trying to reset the heat sensor but can't find it. I have removed the front cover but not sure exactly what I'm looking for.


Make sure you have 240 Volts going to the dryer. The motor runs on 120 Volts, but the element needs 240 Volts. If that checks out, you would need to trace the wiring using the wiring schematic. That could be fun.

The igniter wasnt igniting.. i changed it. it ignites and gets hot for a few seconds then goes out. may have put the thing back together wrong. help


The problem is either the flame sensor or dryer coils. First check the flame sensor also called the radiant heat sensor for continuity. If it has none replace it. If it does have continuity the dryer coils need replacing. They are easy to check and replace. Here are a few links that should help

yes the belt has a tensioner with a bearing and a roller surrounding the bearing
the bearing can be locked up which will put flat spots in the roller m,aking the banging noise
Sound horrifying at times doesn't it?

My LG Dryer DLG5988W wont always heat up. The


Dryer ignitors are not as tempermental as oven ignitors. If it glows, the problem is most likely is not the ignitor. One of the coils on the gas valve is the problem, but with LG, you have to get the entire gas valve, as the coils are not available as seperate parts. By the way, if you are testing the dryer with the front off, you have to make sure to cover the drum opening with something (like a piece of cardboard) so that you will maintain proper air flow for the burner.

Dryer doesn't heat...


Check the following to address this issue--


1. Gas valve coils
Igniter glows, then shuts off without igniting gas - the problem is probably with defective coils (black, located on top of the gas valve). It is recommended to replace all coils (usually two or three) if found defective.

Note: Sometimes the whole gas valve may be defective, thus not letting the gas out. However, this problem is not common.

2. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

3. Igniter
Igniter may burn out or break. Replace the igniter if found defective.

Note: Igniters are very fragile and break easily. It is recommended to handle the igniter only touching the ceramic part of it (usually white in color).

4. Flame sensor (or radiant heat sensor)
Replace the sensor (located near the igniter) if found defective.

I'm pretty sure that the cooling light is always on and blinks when it is cooling. I look at my brother's and he has the EQ bar and it acts the same.
