If dryer is turning on but not heating.then its faulty heating element causing the issue.either the element is cracked or broken .It has to be checked and replaced.But if the hearting element checks out ok then its quite possible that dryer is got stuck in cooling cycle.In that case control board or relay problem.-------- if your unit is stuck in the cooling cycle, you will need to order and replace the control board. This is a common failure on these LG dryers and you can try unplugging the unit for an hour to reset the control board, but if that doesn't work, you'll just need to replace the control board because the unit will not heat properly if the cooling cycle light is stuck on.-------------
The control probably has two parts, a circuit board and a relay. Also make sure you dont have bad electric connection.Resulting in only 120 volts to dryer. (enough to run the 120 volt motor, but not enough to power the 240 volt heating elements) Turn off breaker. Make sure wires on breaker are tight. Make sure neutral wire is tight in breaker box. Take cover off dryer receptacle and check the wires in it to make sure they are all tight. Check that the connections of the cord at the dryer are tight.----------- this is a service manual for troubleshooting LG electric and gas dryer:---- Click the link:--http://136.166.4.200/contents/Laundry/DLE8377/DLE8377_Service_Manual.pdf ------------ This possibilities will help.thanks.Helpmech.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I suspect that either the heating element is malfunctioning or the control board is. Sorry but either will mean an engineer's visit ;-0(
Sorry again,
Good luck,
John C

My lg dryer is taking way to long to dry ,we have to run it three times at 100 min its getting hot but,but that it takes way to long to dry cloths


Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

Doesn't get very hot


The only thing that will fail later on in the cycle would be your gas coils. They come with the gas valve on all LG's. But if your getting heat all the way through the cycle then I would check your venting and make sure its not restricted. This will cause long dry times. Hope this helps. _MJ_

check to make sure that the power legs are correctly installed.  Use an volt meter and measure voltage across neutral and hot.  Hot leads should be on the left and right side and neutral is in the middle.  Hot to neutral should be 120v.  Hot to hot should read 240v.
