Gas Dryer not getting hot

  • Customer: Terry from Goose Creek, SC
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

I noticed the flame would start, then quit after about 15 seconds. I checked the flame detector, and found the lenze cracked. I replaced it, and it's as good as gold.

It looked like a hard job to take the drum out to get at the part. But the top was off with 3 screws, the front about 6 I think. Then the front frame, only 4 screws. I think setting the belt tentioner was the hardest thing to do.

Done in 45 minutes, both the job, then the next load of laundry.

I found that the screws that hold it in were a bit too short. After several cleanings I re inserted the screen only to have it dislodge and break. I ordered a new part and after using a drift pin and lamp I found that the screws were too short and the threads needed to secure it were worn. Longer screws solved the problem.

Not knowing whether it was the pulley, tensioner, or drum roller I had previously pulled the dryer apart and noticed one roller shaft was rusty for some reason. When the part came in (which was quite fast)I disassembled the dryer to the point that I could remove the left rear drum roller. Replaced the roller and reassembled the dryer (to my surprise without any extra screws or parts left). Fairly easy job, just time consuming.

I first took the top off, then the front control panel, unplugged the wires from panel (very easy), took the front panel off, the rum comes out very easy, be sure to look at the way the belt goes back on the pulley. I didn't and it took me a while to figure it out. All goes back together very easy.

drum motor was not starting when warm, centrifugal switch had broken

removed the top of the dryer first by removing screws in the back and pulling the top back and up. Removed the control panel, followed by the door. The front panel and top brace were then removed. The belt was disengaged by pulling the tensioner idler and working the belt off the motor pulley. The drum was lifted out and set aside with the other parts. Holding the motor shaft with vice-grip pliers, and turning the nut on the blower wheel (left-hand thread!)removed the blower wheel. The motor is held by snap-on retainers and easily removed and swapped. Installation is reverse of disassembly. While in there, cleaned out the lint gathered everywhere. Also constructed a heat shield out of aluminum flashing and foil tape to cover the foil and foam tape between the burner assembly and sheet metal side. The foam had actually burned at some point in the past and the flashing should act as a better heat shield. A relatively easy repair, but should not have been necessary in a 7 year old dryer.

Broken ignighter

I didn't do it. I initially called a local repair service company who said it would take 2 weeks to get the part from THEIR supplier because the dryer was not US made ie, LG brand. Repairman said I could probably go on line and get one, but even if he installed it , the repair would not be guaranteed because it didn't come from HIS supplier. The part from his supplier was $80.00 plus $40.00 for next day shipping which is exactlly twice what your company charged me. I had the part the next day from you guys. The repair guy put it in in 20 minutes with no guarantee. IS THIS A GREAT COUNTRY OR WHAT? JOHN
