I replaced my gas valve on this unit, but my dryer still will not get hot and the igniter still glows.
Answer Hello Mike. Check and see if the igniter is bad and is not getting hot enough to light the gas. Also, make sure the flame sensor is good on the unit and the gas is turned on to the dryer.
I have LG dryer had about 6 years now it doesen't dry much as before.
Answer Hello Jon. Run the unit without the vent pipe hooked to it. Make sure the blower wheel inside the dryer is clear, and has no lint build up on it.
Hi. I have an LG dryer. The problem is that the ignitor turns on and then it shuts off quickly. Then the second thing is that the time setting for example when set for an hour, will run for a few minutes and then jumps down to 15 minutes. It does this on any cycle always jumping down to 15 minutes. Can some one please clue me in on whats going on?
Answer Hello Chris. My first guess is a weak coil on the gas burner valve assembly 5221EL2002A. I would make a few checks before ordering any parts. There are two solenoids on the gas valve. Make sure neither one is open (no continuity) or shorted (0 resistance). Also you need to make sure your exhaust isn't crimped, restricted or too long and complicated. Be aware that if you have flexible ducting and it is wadded up behind the unit, the dryer cannot operate properly.
You will need to test the thermostats and the flame sensor and make sure they are good. They should read closed for continuity. Also, check the igniter and make sure it is getting hot enough to light the gas. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter for the testing procedures. Hope this helps. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
