The drum will turn, but no heat


Hi there,

Well if it's a gas dryer and if your dryer tumbles, but there is no heat then you may please check out the following -
1. First of all you can check out for proper air flow - Check the vent for proper air flow by placing your hand over the exterior vent while the dryer is running. You should feel a strong flow of air. If not then check the lint trap. It is located either on top of the dryer or possibly just inside the door. Remove any lint that has built up in the lint trap. Cleaning the lint trap should be done regularly, even as often as after every load. Do not operate the dryer without a lint trap in place.
2. Secondly you can check out the Ignitor - gas dryer blows air through a burner assembly to heat the air. The burner assembly consists essentially of a gas valve, ignitor and a flame sensor. If any part of the burner assembly malfunctions, the result will be low or no heat and slow drying of the clothes. Post comments for further help or information.....

Good Luck!!

LG DLE2512W Will not heat even after replacing Heating element.


there are a couple of thermal fuses also that could be blown inside the back check these also

It shuts off before the cloths are dry


Most likely either the lint trap needs to be cleaned out, the exhaust piping needs cleaning or you have faulty heat sensor / circuit breaker.

Be sure to clean the lint trap before every load may even try cleaning it out half way through the cycle too.

Good luck.
