Thank you for contacting Sears Parts Direct Peter. I am so sorry you are having a continuing problem with the dryer. I realize what a major inconvenience that can be. Before you invest in more parts I recommend contacting our service department back. You will not be charged for labor if we did not diagnose the root of the problem or complete the repair properly. I have included the link to our home services site. The explanation is in the frequently asked questions under Installation and Repair.

www.searshomeservices.com/shs/faq

Click on the question "What if I (have) you repair my appliance and the same problem occurs? Will you charge me to come out a second time?" You can also call our service department at 1-800-469-4663.

If you want to proceed with the repair yourself there are several parts that could be the problem. I have included the parts diagram to help you locate the possible parts.

Parts diagrams for model DLG7188RM.

There are 3 thermostats on the dryer. You mentioned the technician replaced one of them and the thermister. Do you know which thermostat was replaced? All of them are on the Drum/Motor Assy page. They are key numbers K560, M220 and M230. The thermister is key number K560 on that same page. There is also a sensor assembly, key number M240. You will be able to test the parts with a multimeter. Other possible problems are the timer or the gas supply. Do you get any error codes with the dryer burner shut off? If you did, please respond to this link with the error code and I will be happy to research what it stands for.

Again, I do recommend starting by contact our service department and let us get the repair completed for you properly. Let me know if I can be of any further assistance. Thank you for choosing Sears Peter, we appreciate your business.

Hi Kris,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

From your description if the igniter glows, this means you are getting voltage so the most likely issue is with the gas valves. The first thing I recommend is making sure the gas supply is turned on. If there is not an issue with the gas supply you will then need to ohm the valves. I am including this information in the images below. Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service. Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website; Sears Home Services .

Here is a link that you may use to view the parts list diagram or to purchase any parts needed for your LG model number DLG7188RM dryer .

I hope this is helpful. Check the things I have covered here and if I may be of further assistance please reply to this post.

Q:

What would prevent the igniter in my gas dryer from heating up?

A:

The voltage flowing through the igniter should be 120 volts. I provided some information about the ignition sequence for this dryer in the images below. If the control board is providing the proper 120 volts AC through the blue wire from the TAP RELAY on the board (outlined in red) then you could have a problem in the neutral circuit drawn in blue. Any of the components in this circuit could be interrupting the flow of current in the path traced in blue.

By the time that I am answering this question, I see that you provided more details in a subsequent question that has already been answered by David W. An intermittent problem with the safety thermostat appears to be causing your problem. I agree with the advice that you received from David W. to replace both thermostats and check the exhaust vent air flow system for a restriction. This will likely fix your heating problem in the dryer.

If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.
