    LG DLG0452 does not heat up. It looks like it's fine, but air is cold. There is cold air coming out outside as well. Check filter light also flashing, but filter is clean.

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

SOURCE: LG DLG5988W Gas Dryer (NO HEAT)

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...

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: lg tromm dryer electric cooling light staying on

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.

The dryer is taking a lot longer to dry now than before. I'm sure it's not lint, insufficient gas supply or the vent needing cleaned. The cooling light is staying on solid and the drying light...


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.

LG DLG0452W: Light inside the drum stays on even after closing the door tightly and dryer does not start. It flashes to check the lint tray but there isn't anything in there. HELP!!


If that light stays on I would say something definitely is wrong with the door safety lock mechanism. I have an LG dryer service manual that may help you: LG GAS& ELECTRIC DRYER repair manual

The cooling light is always on, and it takes about 90 minutes to dry a load.


In normal operation as the dryer is drying the "drying" light flashes and the "cooling" light is on steady until the 5 minute cooldown at which time the "drying" light stays on steady and the "cooling" light flashes. click on this lg link

I'm pretty sure that the cooling light is always on and blinks when it is cooling. I look at my brother's and he has the EQ bar and it acts the same.
