Question about LG DLG5932W Gas Dryer

1 Answer

I have a LG-DLG5932W dryer and can't find the reset switch. The sensor on the dry was triggered (no heat) due to air duct clogged. Had the air duct serviced and now to rest the switch. Please show me a video or diagram to locate the reset switch. Thank you. Richard

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

While I don't have a video or diagram I can tell you on the LG dryers there is indeed a "reset" for the heating/burner funnel (as you obviously know) 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 type is part # 6931EL3003C ) and available at "searspartsdirect" (which also has a illustration which may help you) or "repairclinic.com" to name a couple.

i.e. NON-RESET

I have a LG-DLG5932W dryer - macmarkus_373.jpg
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 so please take a second and rate the guidance and a testimony to the assistance 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 :)

LG DLG2251W won't heat up


Your post is from 2008 but I am having the same problems with this dryer, same model. This is an LG problem, for crying out loud LG ---- GET IT FIXED. No more LG dryers for me. My $300 Kenmore works like a charm.

The first LG dryer they sent me I thought was a lemon. They came out and replaced the motherboard on the brand new dryer. They came out again and couldn't figure out why it wouldn't dry my clothes, and the second time they gave me another brand new dryer. Same problem with this one and all brand new perfectly clear ducts. Really?????

Google "lg dryer spins but no heat" on youtube - he explains how to get to the sensor and reset it, but still trying to figure out where to find it on my model. I can't believe I have to go through all of this with a $1000 machine!! Never ever again. Avoid LG dryers at all costs. It takes me HOURS to dry a load of laundry. Wanna throw a dry piece of clothing in the dryer for a few minutes to get the wrinkles out? hahaha think again. The heat will never come on even with the manual (non sensor) setting.

Again = AVOID LG DRYERS AT ALL COSTS. It's not worth the headache.

I have a lg dryer that will not dry things all the way before shuting off. I sometimes have to run it 2 or 3 times


Clothes not drying, but dryer runs & heats
1.defective operating thermostat---test thermostat, replace if defective
2.fan or it's pulley loose on shaft---tighten set screw
3.incorrect heat or timer settings---reset timer
4.clothes to wet when placed in dryer----wring out or extract water from clothes before placing in dryer
5.clogged lint screen or duct (little air motion)---clean out lint screen & duct

Dryer not drying. No heat.


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

If you have already tried cleaning the vent then the problem is with the Thermal fuse. When the thermal fuse goes bad it cannot be reset and replacing it is recommended repair.It is located on the blower wheel housing inside the rear panel to the exhaust duct. You can test it for continuity before replacing, if fuse reads continuity then please get back to me if you have any other questions.

The dryer does not dry, it yet runs but the heat is not effective. Further more please tell us any advice what to do to help the problem


first check your house venting for a clog. do this test. take the vent pipe off the dryer, dry a load and if the load dries between 45 to 60 minutes then you have a clog in the house venting.

DBV512gfoww dryer does not dry clothes completly on auto cycle. I have replaced both gas coils.


If the dryer is heating up, and clothes are being partially dried, then your dryer may be overheating. Check the ducts for lint balls / clogs, pay attention to the exterior opening, as well as the duct tube on the back of th e dryer itself. If everything appears normal / clear, you may have a limit switch that is acting up.

If the dryer is not heating up, then likely air movement (through ducts) is not high / fast enough to trigger that indicates that air flow is okay. Check all the duct work. If clear, then sensor / vane switch for air movement may not be closing like it should, which won't allow the igniter / gas valves to function.

My dryer seems to be overheating? It is very hot and taking a long time to dry my clothes. When I open the door there is alot of steam coming out. Any suggestions?


This is commonly caused by a clog in the exhaust vent ducting. If you have not inspected the ducting any time recently, now may be a good time to do so.

The problem can also be internal. If the blower fan assembly becomes clogged, it can exhibit the same symptoms due to poor air flow.

A simple test you can try is to remove the exhaust vent hose from the back of the dryer and try drying a load as you normally would. The air flow leaving the back of the dryer should be warm and forceful.

If the air flow is normal and your clothes dry like they should, you have a clog or restriction somewhere in the exhaust vent from the point where it leaves to dryer, to where it exits your home. You will need to inspect and clean as necessary.

NOTE: The exhaust should be at least 12 inches from the ground to prevent rodent intrusion. If you use an exhaust vent cover, make sure it is the louvered variety. Using any type of screen can clog easily. In addition, you should be using the semi-rigid metal type ducting. It resists kinking, crushing and rodent infestation. A kinked hose can exhibit the same symptoms as a clogged dryer.

If the air flow is weak, you have an internal clog. You will need to access your dryer air blower assembly to ensure the fan is moving properly and it not clogged. Rodents are notorious for building nests in these areas and blocking the air flow.

A clogged dryer will actually over heat, because these is no air flow to keep the heat circulating. The result is a dryer that appears to be very hot, but the clothes take longer times than usual to dry. If left in this condition, the heating circuits will eventually fail.

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Does not always heat


Note: Normal drying time for a dryer is about 45 minutes (some may take up to an hour).

1. Venting
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

2. Thermostat
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.

The dryer still runs well, there is no heat and you have to run the dryer hours before your clothes are dry


This could be one of several problems. The most common problem that causes no heat is a clogged duct or vent. If air is not flowing out of your unit due to a clogged vent or duct, it will immediately overheat and shut down the gas burner, in gas models or the calrod heating system in the electric models. Try removing duct, checking for clogs in the duct and at the connector at the unit itself. Then check the vent inside your home and on the outside wall for lint clogs.

It takes three cycles to dry clothes, andthere is heat?


The most likely cause is poor airflow. This may be due to a clogged lint screen (should be cleaned after each load) or a clogged vent. Run the dryer empty and feel the airflow from the vent outlet (where the vent exits the house). If there isn't a good strong flow of air, remove the duct where it attaches to the dryer and check for flow right at the dryer. If there still isn't good flow you may have a bad blower, but chances are the duct is clogged with lint. If it's the white plastic flexible duct or the corrugated metal kind you should replace it with solid 4-inch vent pipe. This will give the best airflow and the smooth walls won't promote lint buildup.

Front load gas dryer lg model dlg 5988w does not heat


This can obviously be several things, but I would first check the small safety thermostat. On the gas models, there is a small pin sticking out of it which can be pushed back in to reset it. It is located on the heater housing and is only about the size of a dime, with two wires on it. This will trip out easily if your vent was not clean, or is long or restricted in some ways (like using flex ducting)
If you need more help getting to it, let me know and I'll give you more instructions.
