Hi
Please confirm the make and model# of your dryer. It is not necessary for the cooling light to be switched On at all times. If the dryer is not drying the clothes then you would need to check for the following things.
Electric Dryer-- 1. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working. 2. Check for the amp reading at 240 V, it should have reading of 24, 21 and 3 amp (approx.) for 2 lines and neutral respectively. 3. Heating element may have turned or the connection to the element might be loose. Sometimes a shorted circuit element will keep on blowing the fuse or circuit breaker. 4. Motor wiring shorting to ground.
Gas Dryer-- 1. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working. 2. Check for the continuity of the heating element in your gas dryer using a multimeter. Replace the element if continuity is not there. 3. Inspect the thermal fuse if it is burnt out, it is attached to the exhaust duct on the back panel of the gas dryer. Replace if necessary. 4. Check the igniter by first disconnecting it, and then place the probes onto the two contacts of the igniter. The meter should read under 100 Ohms of resistance, if it is above 100 then replace the igniter. 5. Check the continuity on the flame sensor. The sensors are usually located close by the igniter so are easily visible. Hope this helps...

Samsung model dv5451 cooling light stays on


I am assuming when you turn it on, after couple of minutes goes off.
If you are on sensor drying and have no load or too little, then clothing might not touch the sensor enough (to show it is wet), and therefore microprocessor shuts unit down "thinking" everything is dry already. Try time dry.
Alternative: defective main board, sensor, wire harness.Call for service.

Cooling light stays on during dry cycle. no heat is to dry clothes. I've switched the circut breaker numerous times and unplugged the unit many times also to "reset" . What's next..


Try a timed dry cycle instead of an automatic cycle. If that works, then you will need to clean off the moisture detection bars inside the dryer to get the auto cycle to work again. Look for two curved metal bars, about 3/16 inch wide and 4 inches long, about an inch apart, located just inside the front of the dryer, near the right side of the lint filter. (you'll have to stick your head in the dryer drum to see them) Often times, use of dryer sheets will result in a waxy coating forming on these bars, preventing the dryer from detecting the moisture in the clothes. The dryer sees no moisture, it goes into the cool down mode and then stops. Clean the bars off, and you should be back in the laundry business.

The cooling light is always on and the clothes take forever to dry!


Inside the dryer, near the lint filter, you will find two curved metal bars, about 1/4 inch wide each, about an inch apart and about 4 inches long. These sense the moisture in the clothes. When fabric softener sheets are used, a waxy substance will eventually coat the bars, so the dryer will not "see" that the clothes are still wet, and go right to a cool down. Clean them off, or use time dry only.

My dryer stops drying after 10 min. All the lights flash on the right hand side. I've tried different drying settings and different amounts of clothing. Nothing works. What's wrong?


My dryer does the same thing. Additionally, it is not heating what so ever. Clothes are cool and damp, and heating vents at back of dryer are cold to the touch.

Same problem. Just bought it used, all vents are clean


If it shows cooling, it sounds like the sensor bars need to be cleaned off. They are two silver strips about 5 inches long just on the drum side of the lint filter. When dryer softener sheets are used, the bars get coated with a waxy substance, and then they do not detect the moisture in the clothes, so they think the clothes are dry, and proceed to the cool down cycle. You should be able to do a timed dry cycle just as it is, but will need to clean off the bars to get all the auto dry cycles to work. NOTE: If timed dry does not heat, post a comment for additional items to check.

"cooling" display won't turn off causing heating problems.


Try cleaning off the two curved metal bars (about 4 inches long) on the inside near the lint filter. They are what senses the moisture on automatic dry. When you use fabric softener sheets, the stuff from the fabric softener sheets can coat the bars, which makes the dryer think the clothes are already dry, and puts the dryer into cool down. (using time dry will also take the moisture sensor out of the cycle, if you'd like) This should be a Fix-Ya for your problem.

Clothes are taking 3 cycles to dry and cooling light on front wont shut off


The vent is clogged.  To make sure, disconnect the vent from the dryer and run the dryer normally.  If your clothes dry normally, then have a professional vent cleaning company take care of the vent.  
The cooling light will always stay on during the run.  When it is blinking, the heat has stopped and is in the cooling process.
If there is no heating, you have a problem with the high limit switch or something else electrical and needs to be addressed by a qualified LG technician.
