I have an LG gas dryer with model # DLGX7188WM. The cooling light stays lit and it does not generate heat. Any suggestions that you can supply woulbe be appreciated. Thank You
You will want to access the tech sheet for the unit and put the unit into a diagnostic mode and see if there are any stored error codes. This issue may be caused by a faulty thermistor or a faulty control board that is causing the issue. If there are any error codes stored then this will give an indication of what to look for.
Dryer will not heat up. Ignitor glows then stops but I dont hear any gas and I have no flame. Checked thermostat sensors and they have continuity. Is the problem with the coil valve? If it is, do I have to replace the whole valve coil assembly or can I just replace the Coils? Thanks
Answer Hello Michael,
You need to check the current draw on the ignitor. If the ignitor is only turning red, this is the issue. When the unit pulls 3.2 to 3.6 amps of current, the ignitor will turn almost white hot. This is enough current to open the gas valve. If the ignitor is turning white hot, the issue could be either the gas valves or the gas valve coils.
