You will have to check the thermistor as well as the rest of the sensor. Make sure the gas is off and the unit is unplugged befor you open the back of the unit. If the sensors test good than you may have a bad heating coil unit. All the parts can be tested for free at your local appliance parts supplier.

SOURCE: dryer tubles does everything like its supposed to

Hello there
Here is some things that could make the dryer not work properly meaning heat wise please click on the items listed in blue and go thru each of them this will help you troubleshoot this
There's no heat If your dryer doesn't heat, check these: Power from the house Heating element Thermal fuse Wiring Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected. Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable. Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.) Wiring A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

Check your exhaust duct - the long tube that goes from the back of your dryer to the vent outside. It may be clogged with lint.

Sounds like you need an ignitor part number 5318EL3001A but you will need a gas technician to work on this legally. Best off to call a reliable service company such as Sears.

Lg dlg 7188rm gas dryer will not heat


Check to make sure that the thermal fuse is not blown. Small plastic piece with 2 wires coming off of it. Typically this is problem.

My LG dryer will not heat, the model number is DLGO332W. I cleaned the entire lint system, thinking it was blocked preventing ventalation and then preventing the heat element to kick on. Not the problem....


I would check the thermal fuses to see where they are open or not. They are located right on top of the heating element.

Technically you can disconnect the wires and short them together(Don't leave like that) just to see if they are bad. You always use a meter.
