Dryer doesn't get hot. Replaced all the sensors and still it doesn't get hot. Doesn't get hot in any mode. All vents are clear. I'm thinking that maybe there may not gas getting ignited, but I know nothing about gas stuff and am not sure if thats the problem. Any ideas of what I should be looking at next?

My DLG2532W just stopped getting hot, is this an easy fix or do i need an expert to fix 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...

I HAVE A LG DLG2532W GAS DRYER. IT WILL NOT DRY. I HAVE TAKEN IT APART AND CAN SEE THE HEATING ELAMENT HEATING UP. CAN U HELP


Safety First, Unplug Dryer. There are two thermostats in the dryer. They are on the exhaust tube that houses the burner element and the ignitor. One is on the top half of the exhaust tube near the dryer wall and the other is on the bottom half of the exhaust tube toward the center of the dryer. The one on the bottom half of the exhaust tube in the one with the reset button.pull off right access port cover, look in and left for thermostat hanging down off of exhaust tube. Press button between the two wires going to thermostat. It is a 3 minute operation if you can get to the right side access port. hope this helped Tim

We have the same dryer and the check filter light always comes on at power up but goes off when starting. Is yours still not heating? as I see you question is a little old now. let us know.

Model DLG2532W no heat, lint not an issue, circuit breakers OK, gas service OK. What could be the issue?


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. No Heat issue in dryer is usually caused due to three things mainly: Thermal Fuse, Wiring Harness and/or Heating Element. Start with checking the Thermal Fuse which ismounted inside the back cover panel to the exhaust duct and is mounted in white plastic housing. If thats fine then the Heating Element should be checked. Please do revert for further assistance.


Thanks

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.

I HAVE A LG GAS DRYER...MODEL NUMBER DLG2532W...THE PROBLEM, WHEN I WAS ATTEMPTING TO RESET THE THERMOSTAT BUTTOM, I ACCIDENTALLY BROKE A PART THAT HAS A COIL AROUND IT WHICH I THINK GETS HOT AND i THINK...


OK i see the other modle #.
Yes the ignitor can be replaced part# 5318EL3001A

If you have to reset the thermal fuse your vent is clogged so be sure to clean the vent all the way to the outside.

HOW TO INSTALL THE BELT ONTO A LG DRYER MODEL DLG2532w


Connect Gas Supply Pipe
(Gas Dryer ONLY)
For further assistance, refer to section on Gas
Requirements.
1. Make certain your dryer is equipped for use with the
type of gas in your laundry room. Dryer is equipped at
the factory for Natural Gas with a 3/8” N.P.T. gas
connection.
2. Remove the shipping cap from the gas connection at
the rear of the dryer. Make sure you do not damage the
pipe thread when removing the cap.
3. Connect to gas supply pipe using a new flexible
stainless steel connector.
4. Tighten all connections securely. Turn on gas and
check all pipe connections (internal & external) for
gas leaks with a non-corrosive leak detection fluid.
5. For L.P. (Liquefied Petroleum) gas connection, refer
to section on Gas Requirements.

LG DRYER DLG2532W GAS


I had similar problem with my LG DLG2532W gas dryer:
1) Power on machine:
- Check Filter light comes on (LG says this is OK at start)
- Time lights have all dashes
- All Program cycle lights on (Air Dry up to cotton towels)
- This is all normal
2) Select program cycle (cotton towels for example)
- Check Filter light now goes off
- Time shows 58 minutes
- Dry Level, Temp Control, etc are set automatically
- This is all normal
3) Push start (this is where the trouble begins)
- The "drying cycle" light starts blinking (good)
- The dryer starts turning (this looks good...but)
- The ignitor (heating coil that ignites the gas) never heats
- The gas never comes on (because ignitor not on)
- No heat ever is produced.

Net result is dryer looks normal and runs, but there is no heat.
There is no error code...nothing to tell you anything is wrong.
Your only recourse is to call a technician because the manuals do not explain anything in any detail.

Thank goodness for the internet. I just needed the one clue that there was a reset button on the thermostat. That fixed my problem. Here is some more detail in case someone else is having this problem:

There are apparently two thermostats in the dryer. They are on the exhast tube that houses the burner element and the ignitor. One is on the top half of the exhaust tube near the dryer wall and the other is on the bottom half of the exhaust tube toward the center of the dryer. The one on the bottom half of the exhaust tube in the one with the reset button. Before pushing the reset button PULL THE PLUG ON THE DRYER OR TURN OFF CURCUIT BREAKER. The reset switch is between two wire leads that go to the thermostat and you will probably shock yourself if you try to push the button with the power on. If you open up the right side access cover on the dryer, then you can see the exhast tube. It is about 5 inches in diameter and (looking thru the right side access port), it will be sloping up from left to right as it runs from the front of the dryer to the back. You can see another exhaust tube further away from the port and lower down, but the one you are looking for is closest to you and higher up. If you look back toward the front of the machine (left), you can see two wires hanging down from the opposite side of the exhaust tube. The wires run to the thermostat which you can also see on a bracket standing off the exhaust tube. In between the two wire leads that run to the thermostat is the reset button.

Bottom line....pull off right access port cover, look in and left for thermostat hanging down off of exhaust tube. Press button between the two wires going to thermostat. It is a 3 minuite operation if you can get to the right side access port.

If you cannot get to the right side access port, you can pull off the fronf of the dryer and get to it that way, but it is much harder. You start by popping the dryer top by pushing in a putty knife between the top cover and front cover about two inches away from the top left and right edges of the machine. This is tricky and takes some fidling. I just pryed mine open the first time, but now I see how it is supposed to be done. After popping the top, you can take off the front of the machine. There are two screws on the top and then two more on the bottn half of the door. You have to open the door to get these two screws out. There are some wires going to sensors and switches that have to be disconnected.

It is much easier to access the thermostat thru the right side access port.
