There are a few reasons that the heat will quit. It could be the element that looks like a coil or spring pulled out loose and it is what heats up and quite often if the dryer is older the element breaks and needs to be replaced. Before you take anything apart though go to your breaker and look for the dryer breaker. It is usually bigger than the rest as it is on a 220 volts and if only one of the breakers is tripped the dryer will run but won't heat up it needs that extra 110 volt breaker flipp;ed on to heat the element.There is also a sensor that may have gone on the blink but unless you are real handy with a volt meter and a screwdriver set you may haver to call the pro's. If you do want to fix it your self you will need to get to the inside and get the drum out of the way so you can get access to the element.if the element is the cause it will be broken at some point in the coils and will not be attached 100% all the way around so it is unable to complete the ciccuit therefor not turning on and heating up.If you want to do this you self I would write back asking for step by step instructions to do this.If this has helped you dont for get to click yes on your way out thanks again and good luck!

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 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.
