Question about LG DLG2532 Gas Dryer

1 Answer

After pulling out the dryer and cleaning up the lint from the back and venting, the dryer wouldn't fire the burner. I found the reset trip switch on the heat exchanger and set it. the dryer poped it again after about half drying the clothes. I just reset it again and it poped pretty much right when I started the dyer. Is this sensor failing?

    For what ever the reason I'm getting a few loads dryed before having to reset the switch. I now have since blown out the area with compressed air and am waiting to see if the switch holds. I will most likely order a new one and repalce it. They are not expensive and with all the heat it takes, why not. I will popst again if and when I replace the thermal switch. Thanks, Tim

My WGD9200SQ0 gas dryer lights up in beginning for about 2 minuets then flame goes out and does not relight. What's the problem? Coils been replaced


Dryers usually have interlocks to keep things from overheating or, worse, catching on fire. You may be able to narrow it down a bit by seeing if it matters whether there are any clothes in the dryer. Most likely, the dryer thinks it's overheating, or in danger of doing so. Couple of possibilities. For anything involving disassembly or hands into any part of the dryer but the clothes tumbler, make sure you unplug the dryer and turn off the gas. No short cuts there, you can kill yourself.
  • Exhaust vent is clogged, no exit for hot damp air, too much back pressure on fan. Undo hose clamp in back. Clean lint from hose, reachable area in back of dryer, and in wall. Check outside as well, if the vent goes under your house or anywhere but right through the wall. Make sure the outside vent isn't blocked, jammed, or clogged. Some folks religiously clean their lint screen, but let the vent accumulate stuff for years.
  • Air inlet is clogged. Laundry looms accumulate lint. Sometimes that can end up drawn back into the air inlets. Make sure vent through-holes in back are clean and unblocked.
  • If you unscrew the back panel, look at the air inlet to the burner area (careful if it was just on) and clear lint.
  • The output blower motor can get clogged with lint and not actually move air anymore. You may have to do a bit more disassembly - probably a few more 1/4" hex head screws to open the fan assembly that feeds to the outlet duct. You may see a ton of lint built up between the blades. Remove it with fingers, vacuum cleaner, canned air, or the like. That will also likely help a bit.
  • There are actual sensors. You'll need to look at a DIY list for how to check them with a voltmeter, but they'll fail from time to time and trip an interlock - most dryers, for safety, are built to assume the worst if one of the sensors fails, to make sure a sensor failure doesn't lead to destroyed clothes or fires.
Good Luck!

LG DLE4801W Dryer Won`t dry clothes in timely manner


You stated that you cleaned the vent but what most people do not realize is that pulling the vent screen out and cleaning it (and possibly even using those miraculous vent brushes to reach inside) is synonymous only removing the "tip from an iceberg".
If you are fairly confident in using some basic hand tools. I can almost guarantee that if you disconnect the dryer's power cord from the wall and remove the vent hose from the back, you are at the beginning point of removing ALL the lint from the dryer. Use a hex nut driver to remove the screws from the back of the dryer to inspect the exhaust chute that leads to the area where the vent hose is connected. (Be sure to "count the number of screws and put them into a tin can or other retaining device to keep from losing any of them). You should be able to see the entire compartment once you open it. Don't be surprised to find enough lint inside including the blower wheel to fill an average plastic grocery bag! Many dryer fires start in this area because most people do not know that so much lint collects there. I highly recommend that this easily accomplished task is done about one a year to keep the exhaust chute clean. It only takes about an hour to do the job very completely. Use a flashlight to inspect the entire area. Once you put the exhaust chute back together, test it again. I have found that this fixes most dryer heating problems when there is no error code. Doing it once a year is also good fire prevention maintenance. I am very curious about how much lint you find and if this fixed your problem. Please send me a reply. Thank You!

I have an Asko T700 dryer which is working fine except tripping after half or less of drying time. I can reset and it dries for a while longer, usually tripping again. I have cleaned out the lint and...


Well, if the vents are perfectly clean and unobstructed the only thing I can think of is that the thermal switch designed to turn off unit when overheating is opening prematurely.
Might have to be replaced.

Kenmore gas dryer 110.77902792 The outer surface of the burner funnel is covered with rust. Do I need to do something about this?


no,caused by moisture,you can try cleaning out the dryer,unplug it,pull out the lint filter,remove the bottom panel and remove the duct that the lint filter slides into and clean it out,then if you have a shop vac,vac up all the lint you can see then stick the hose on the other end and blow all the lint from the back to the front and vac up the lint this way you don't have to pull the drum to clean the cabinet,make sure you blow off the motor and all the gas parts,then remove the vent line from the back of the dryer,if it's a long run from the dryer to the out side i use a leaf blower to blow out the line,go outside first and make sure nothing is blocking the vent then blow it out from behind the dryer.if the vent line is blocked or the dryer filled with lint this can cause extra moisture and also a fire in the dryer.do this once a year and you'll have no problems with the dryer and the way it dryes the clothes.

Shut off after pulling out the lint catcher. It had some BB's that fell down the shoot. Then shut off. Will not restart. Is there a safety switch that may have tripped (fire safety)


if the dryer was running and you pulled out the lint filter most likely all the lint got removed and jammed the blower wheel.unplug it,remove the vent line and the back panel,then remove the duct that the lint filter slides into and clean it out.i'm assuming this is a whirlpool or kenmore,you could have cooked the thermal fuse also,it's a white piece next to the duct,it has two wires going to it and the part number is 3392519,check it with a meter,you have to pull at least one wire off when you read it out to get the true reading,vac out the duct and all the lint,if the vent line is long,blow it out with a leaf blower,all the lint will blow outside through the outside vent,then you can remove the front and vac out all the lint in the cabinet and clean off the motor.good luck

What would make the high limit switch on my kenmore electric dryer be open twice


Lint build up inside the machine, or a clogged dryer vent duct. if it is the resettable type, disconnect your dryer vent, reset the limit switch, and try to run it. if it works with the ducting disconnected, clean your ducting, and make sure the flapper door on the outside of your house is working. If the limit trips even with the duct disconnected, make sure the air path and fan are clean and free of lint. sometimes lint will build up on the heater element and catch on fire near the limit switch. the heater banks are available as a complete assembly, with a new element and all limit switches and thermostats. they run about 75 dollars.

Starter on dryer does not start dryer and no heat


Hello and welcome to Fixya,

have you checked the manual reset hi-limit cut-out at the back of the dryer ? It`s located on the back panel about 1/2 to 3/4 the way down and will look like a small round black rubber button. Push it to see if it "clicks" and then try your dryer.

**What to look for if it`s tripped...

1) Plugged venting - make sure your venting is clean and clear of lint or un-obstructed where it exhaust`s outdoors.

2) Plugged lint screen - ( part # 8061812 ) This is especially relevant if one uses fabric/static sheets as they contain wax...especially lesser name brand sheets. You can clean the lint screen by removing it from the door and with some mild soap and hot/warm water wash it...an old toothbrush works well for cleaning it. Careful not to rip the fine screen.

3) The blower wheel/fan impeller ( part # 8055200 ) attached to the front of the motor which moves the air through and over the clothes in the drum may be loose, broken or covered in lint, hence causing the hi-limit to trip.

4) A faulty heating element ( part # 8063808 ) can also cause the hi-limit to trip as well. If the element is shorted to the casing it will not cycle "off" via the 115°C (part # 8008807 ) cycling thermostat, thus cycling off via the hi-limit 150°C ( part # 8008487 ).

Let me know how that works or if you`ve already tried that. If it is tripped, resetting it may only temporarily resolve your problem since it is usually tripped due to venting or heater issues.



good luck.

Danby DCD5505-w1 Tripping Internal Breaker "Limit Switch"


Sounds like you may have a lint clog somewhere either in the dryer, or if if you have it vented in the vent. The limit switch is tripping due to an overheat situation. The dryer must have proper airflow to function properly.
