Question about LG Dryers
First check that the duct is clear of obstructions.
A quick way is to place a wet towel in the dryer, remove the duct from the wall and let the machine vent inside of the house. run it at high heat without the filter screen in.
While it is running check for good air flow by placing your hand near the dryer vent. Also note if there is any heat. also listen for the sounds of the drum turning.
If there is good flow and good heat then the filter screen of duct needs cleaning. Inserting the filter screen and running the test again will tell you which it is. If there is a noticeable difference between filter in and filter out then the filter needs cleaning.
If there is good flow and no heat then the dryer element needs to be checked and either a thermostat or element replaced.
If there is no flow then the blower needs to be replaced.
If there is no drum spinning but heat and flow then the belt needs to be replaced ( Extremely unlikely)
If all of these conditions check out then you will need to call a tech in to diagnose.
