Question and Answers


Dryer wont heat up lg5201xtw1


Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears

I am sorry and do understand your frustration when the dryer wont heat up.

Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Whirlpool model number lg5201xtw1.

 In helping with your dryer.  The first thing to let everyone know is that they must first check there lint screen.  Pull it out and make sure the vent the screen goes into is not plugged.   Next check the vent area where it goes outside the house.   A dryer has to have a free movement of air to prevent heating problems and fire hazzards.

May I ask do you hear the click when you start the dryer up? If  yes then ignitor is good if no then you need an ignitor.  The next things to check out is in the burner system close to the ignitor called the burner coils.   There is 2 and best to just chang both at the same time because they come as  a kit together.   I have these on the links below to click on.

ignitor for model lg5201xtw1

 If you have further questions please let me know.
