Ignitor glows, flame kicks on but only stays lit for 5-10sec. I have been told it is the gas valve assy. Is it that or a thermostat or something else? Thanks.
Answer Hello Erik. 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. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Here is my original question: My dryer will heat on manual setting up to 60 minutes. When I use the sensor settings, the clothes will not thoroughly dry. I replaced the ignitor recently. What could the problem be? I did as you suggested with the venting system, thoroughly cleaning it, but the heat still only works on the manual settings and not the sensor settings. Any other advice?
Answer Hi Kurt. There is a thermistor part # 6323EL2001B that is the temperature sensor for the board. Did you use the tech. sheet supplied w/ the unit in order to get the fault codes ? The thermistor is mounted on the back side at the top center area of the blower wheel hsg. On the inside of the lint catcher on the right are 2-sensor bars mounted parallel to one another. They are part # 6500EL3001A. Make sure you use a scotch brite pad to scuff these bars up so they can sense the wetness of the clothes. Make sure the electrical lead and the ground connection are tight on the bars also. Thank You.
I have a natural gas dryer but the burner is not turning on. The gas is on, but yet no fire. I tried firing up, but no flame. What could be the problem?
Answer Hello Sergio. You will need to test the thermostats 6931EL3004B 6931EL3004B and the flame sensor 6501EL3001A and make sure they are good. They should read closed for continuity. Also, check the igniter 5318EL3001A 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
Need to replace gas valve on new LG dryer. Valve p/n is 5221EL2002A however, the picture on website differs slightly from valve taken off machine. Directly beneath the "CGV22CK" label the picture shows 2 side by side holes in it's base (1 with a set screw?). This part on my valve is a little thinner (3/16" thk) and does not have these holes. Is the picture of an earlier model valve and the replacement won't have these holes? Even though the p/n's match I want to be sure it is right. Thanks!
Answer Hello Bob! Searching the given model DLGX3361V the gas burner valve assembly part number 5221EL2002A, our part number 5221EL2002A is the correct replacement valve for your appliance. I've found several different pictures of this part and all sites show the same valve. since this is the only part number that the manufacture calls for your appliance we guarantee that it will fit your product with no issues. It is possible that this part is a remanufactured part with the same part number. If for any reason you have any problems feel free to contact us. Thanks.

Answer Hello Kurt. It sounds like the venting system is clogged or kinked. You will need to check the vent and clean it out. Be sure and clean the vent pipe and the dryer air duct assembly. If the air flow is not good, the unit will retain moist air causing the clothes not to dry. Try running the unit with the vent unhooked from the back of the dryer and see if the dryer works properly. Hope this helps.
Lg brand, model 5932s gas dryer. Dryer heats up but not as hot as normal. I can smell gas when dryer is running. Would this be the gas valve, or the electronics telling the valve to operate? The gas valve has 2 coils on it. Does that mean that it has 2 solenoids, or 2 coils operating 1 solenoid? How can the gas valve leak being that it has redundant coils? Thanks.
Answer Hi Bob. Remove power. Shut off the gas valve and get your soap and water spray mixture to test the supply lines carefully for leaks. Correct as needed. You are at a safety issue while smelling the gas during running especially and if not running.Make sure all 4 - legs are level and that the unit is level front to back and side to side. This will help the unit not to shake loose in the future. There is gas Teflon tape (yellow) and gas pipe thread compound part to help seal potential leaks. If the gas burner valve assy.leaks it is part # 5221EL2002A. If either one of these parts are leaking it will not allow the heat to fully reach potential. If the vent is clogged and the vent cap is not opening and closing directly it will cause clogging and not drying well. Thank You.
