Question about LG Dryers
SOURCE: Tumble Dryer not drying clothes
the problem could be several different things. first remove the front panel and see if the globar glows. if it doesn't check it for cracks and replace if needed. if it glows, replace your gas coils, they are usually the problem

got mine repaired.. They replaced the gas valve. Initial review is that its not drying as well as when it was new. I will use some more this weekend to confirm.
Interesting point on the washer....i have the same one i think (2277? - can't remember either). I've probably had the same issue with the bleach and never made the correction since I don't inspect the clothes before moving them over to the dryer. I will keep my eye out for that issue.
Never had the clunking noise though from the dryer.
Actually, I've been pretty happy with the two units until the dryer stopped heating...

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.

I started researching on here because I was having the same problems with my LG dryer. (It also happens to be the same model.) I discovered the vent hose was kinked.
With the lights, the cycle it's on that blinks. When your dryer gets to the last 5 minutes, the "Cooling" light will blink and the "Drying" light will go off. If you have the "Wrinkle" setting on after the 5 minute cooling cycle, the wrinkle cycle will start and circular lights will show where the minutes normally are displayed and the Wrinkle light will blink.
