Question and Answers

Q:

LG Dryer Model# DLG7188RM does not dry

A:

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.
