Can you use a Volt meter and are you comfortable working on a live circuit? Electric dryer have 240 Volts on a lot of the circuits. There is a wiring diagram inside the machine, If you can follow this I may be able to help you?

Blowing cold air

Unplug the unit. Using a ohm meter you need to check of the heating element is good or not. Reading across it you should see very low resistance. If you don't it may be "open" or a thermal interrupt has stuck open preventing current flowing through it. Check your high and low limit switches (sensors) for closed circuit (low resistance). If one reads high or open that one needs to be replaced.

I have a ge harmony profile dryer and when its cold usually below 40 the screen will not come on the light inside the dryer when i open the door will come on but the touch will not come on until the room...

I have this same problem and have found that if I disconnect the vent to prevent cold air from coming in, the problem goes away, but it takes about 2 hours to warm up. In addition, I tried putting a hair drying pushing air back through the dryer's vent intake into the dryer itself, and this took an hour.

Some reading indicates it might be a faulty thermal fuse, but it isn't clear.

Did you every find a solution to your problem?

Its blowing only cold air

Here are the break down diagrams and Replacement parts for WHIRLPOOL RGX5634KQ2 |

If the Ignitor comes on and lights the first stage then when the Ignitor comes on to light the second stage, there is no gas to light
The problem in such situation is a bad coil on the gas valve. No doubt about it.

- The part number for the coil kit is AP3094251

Blows cold air and produces little lint in the vent

To get a rear control LG dryer apart: Open door and remove two phillips head screws at the 5 and 7 o'clock positions. Use a putty knife to release the clips holding the top panel to the dryer front by pushing the clips in at the seam of the dryer top and front, a couple inches in from each side. Swing top back. Remove two phillips head screws at the top, allowing front panel to pull forward. Unplug drum light and door switch and drum sensor plugs, allowing front panel to be completely removed and set aside. Now, look at the burner area at the lower right. Behind the gas valve you will find a small (about dime sized) high limit thermostat on the left side of the burner cone. It has two wires attached and has a small pin in the center of it. (Only on gas models) Push the pin in.
Now, if that get's you ignition again, CORRECT VENTING ! Get rid of flexible vent material. (use only rigid aluminum vent pipe and elbows) Clean out vent pipes and outside vent hood. Outside vent hood should be the kind with a four inch flap for the opening, not a two inch flap. Tripping of the high limit thermo is almost always caused by inadequate air flow.

Try cleaning out the the vent tube. Sometimes lint gets caught up in there over time. Hope this helps.
