Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

It could be a number of things so the problem will need to be narrowed down. The place I will start is as follows, have you checked the hi-limit thermostat ?


On the LG dryers there is a "reset" for the heating element/burner funnel on the right hand side of the funnel, however they also incorporate a no reset "hi-limit thermostat" on the left side of the funnel. Once it is tripped it must be replaced. This is only present on the gas dryers.

It is located on the left side as I mentioned, but the other is on the right side of the heater housing/burner funnel and will resemble the images shown below. It is part number 6931EL3004B ( the reset typr is part # 6931EL3003C ) and available at "searspartsdirect" or "repairclinic.com" to name a couple.

i.e. NON-RESET

i.e. RESETTABLE

With the aid of an ohm meter you can check the non-reset for continuity, the other you should be able to push the center reset button ( listen closely for a "click" ) but it too can be ohmed out for continuity to confirm or dismiss it's condition.


Hope that help`s move you forward if nothing else. If so please take a second and rate the guidance and a testimony to your inquiry you received here at FixYa, either or all is appreciated.

Let me know if you can provide any further info and I'll continue to help in any manner I can. Good luck

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Verify IGNITER glows the easy method


continuity checks on igniters are seldom accurate. An amperage test is the best solution. Igniters are fairly cheap, just replace if it is suspect. They are a wear item that go bad frequently.

Not heating during drying. everything else works


There are 3 things to turns on the heat. The ignitor, the thermal sensor, The gas valve. The ignitor has to glow first when you start. if it doesn't then it has a problem right there. After the ignitor comes on, and the thermal sensor has to produce some voltage so the gas valve can open to fire a flame then the heat will start. If the thermal sensor is bad, valve can't open then the ignitor will shut down, hence there is no heat.Taking the back panel off and try look to see the ignitor when you start so you can diagnose it correctly. Good luck
