Gas dryer runs but no heat. Took it apart cleaned all ducts and lots of years worth of dirt out of entire machine, looks brand new. Tested all components.

You did quite a bit of work. One other thing that controls the ignitor is called the flame detector. Its the black box looking thing mounted on the side of the big pipe the flame shoots into. Should be 2 wires going to it. A quick test to see if the ignitor comes on is to tie the 2 wires together. If you see the ignitor come on thats the bad part,

you have 2 posibilities the first one is very unprobable and the second will fix the oven

1) the new gas valve is defective and while the proper amprage is being supplied to it,it simply wont open

2) even though the bake ignitor is indeed coming on it isn't drawing the proper amp draw (3.2-3.6 amps) to open the gas valve ,the very fact the ignitor comes on totally eminates that the control isn't providing power to it for the bake ignitor to heat

i have been a appliance repair technician for over 30 years and am 100% confident that by replacing the bake ignitor the oven will work fine

Our gas dryer is working on individual cycles, but does not let the gas heat come on. DLG2526W LG gas dryer. Where do I find instructions to re-set thermal overload or check the ignitor for operation?


If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes 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 different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

check out this electric no heat tip...

LG DLG2526W gas dryer not heating after 1.5 years. Unplugged unit to attempt reset. Cleaned out back vent which did have some lint build-up. Still not heating. Is there a reset button somewhere or do I...

I was having similar symptoms and have finally solved my issue.

We noticed that clothes weren't drying as well as they use to...when using sensor dry they would come out slightly damp (just barely). Intermittently we would smell natural gas in the laundry room. After reading numerous forum posts, I decided to swap out the main control board because many people said changing the ignitor and gas valve didn't fix the problem. I thought that I had fixed the problem as we didn't smell gas for a few weeks.

Well, the problem did come back a few weeks later. I ordered a gas valve thinking that was the most likely culprit. The swap out that part I had to remove the drum which exposed everything in the dryer nicely. It turns out the exhaust tube had dislodged internally and a decent amount of lint was being blown inside the machine. Lint was everywhere.

The lint had built up inside the gas tube and must have caused turbulence in the gas flow which prevented it from lighting properly. I cleaned everything up, reconnected the exhaust tubing and taped it securely before putting everything back together. I didn't replace the gas valve as the original one ohmed out properly. The dryer has been working like new for several weeks now.

I hope this helps other with similar problems.

Oven sparks 3 times ignites then shuts down . Gas valve has been replaced no change.

i ran into this one a while ago,the oven burner and ignitor came as a kit together.what happened is they realized later that they needed more holes by the ignitor/sensor so it should come as a kit.good luck!

Whirlpool gas dryer won't ignite -no heat

Try replacing the ignitor. The ignitor has to glow red and draw enough current to open the gas valve. When the gas valve opens then the ignitor lights the burner. Replace ignitor.

Top oven bake igniter comes on, but gas does not.

Check the voltage on the 2 wires going to the oven gas valve. If you get 120v when the ignitor is on with no gas coming out, you have a bad gas valve. If you get voltage, but it is not much, it is the ignitor. The ignitors don't burn out completely on the ovens, they just get a little dim and no longer ignite the gas and eventually will not turn on the gas valve
