Hi,

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.

My LG dlg2532 takes forever to dry clothes. When the drying cycle ends, the clothes are still quite damp. It's a gas dryer and the dryer seems to be getting gas since it does eventually dry the clothes...


How long are the vents? do they go for miles in your house?(sarcasm) Does the dryer have good ventilation? Check the vents again and make sure it is clear.

I have a LG front load dryer only just 2years old and it takes several cycles to dry clothes. It seems to heat but not to its potential on high settings. It took 4 hours to dry a load of towls. I had it on...


Hello Kimwbarrym,
Maybe I can give you a few ideas on some things to check. As a general rule of thumb, to get maximum support here at Fixya, you should always include the brand and model of your appliance.. That helps us to tailor responses to your specific problem.. Anyway, regardless of dryer model, they all pretty much operate in the same basic manner and that is.. there is a heat source ( electric dryers use an heating element similar to an electric stove) A gas dryer is essentially the same but uses gas with an igniter to create a flame on a burner..) Outcome is the same.. Heat
Once heat is established, you need to move the clothes and the air thru the dryer compartment to optimize the drying efficiency. Both gas and electric models use a blower to move that heated air thru the compartment and out thru your vent system. If anything restricts air movement ( lint, blockage or any restriction in the blower or filter) your drying efficiency drops way down and dry times go way up. So. now you have the basics on how a drywer works.. Having said that... you need to check the basics first.. Make certain that you dryer exhaust system has NO restrictions to air flow.. you may have to detach vent line and check it for lint or anything in there.. If you have an electric dryer.. you can turn it on for a minute or two with the vent linbe disconnected to see if you are getting robust air movement.. If you aren't , then your problem is internal to the dryer, If you are.. you may have an exhaust duct restriction. Although not recommended, you can do the same for a gas dryer in a well ventilated area just to check the flow intensity.. But.. only for a short time since the gas burn byproduct is unhealthy for you to breath. I forgot to mention that the drum inside the dryuer should be moving the clothes during all this.. that acellerates the dry cycle too. Lastly, you need to make sure you are getting heat.. You can start a dry cycle with the dryer empty to see how warm it gets.. It should get fairly warm. Not sure I helped you but you now have a few things you can try. If you continue to have problems with this, feel free to contact me via this forum but please include the model number of your LG appliance..
Regards,
Rick

LG DLG2532 Gas Dryer will only dry on manual setting


If you use dryer sheets, LG recommends no.  Dryer sheets cause a film that will not allow the sensors to feel the clothes moisture during the drying process thereby causing the computer to countdown the timer quickly.  To clean out the sensors, use a green pad and scrub the sensor bars inside the dryer drum.  That should remove the film left by the dryer sheets.

Lg electic dryer


Your vent to the outside is restricted and needs to be cleaned out.  To check this, remove the vent line behind the dryer and run a load.  If the clothes come out dry in a normal time, the problem is in your vent.
