lg dlg7188wm gas dryer not heating.
« on: May 23, 2012, 12:56:39 PM »
It went through the test sequence with all lights on the panel lit, and it alternated some code three times(which I believe is correct)--it was U:02 then 8:98, or something like that. Then it displayed nE after that sequence. I stepped through with the pause button as described, and got temps that were accuate (~20 C on both readings). The motor and igniter did what they were supposed to.

Any idea what could be wrong?  I changed thermostat, nd safety thermostat and also igniter and flame sensor...

I don't think that is a option with LG.


You would need to change the gas valve, part # 5221EL2002A

Ok, that's good to know. Don't see much for gas or LG dryers around here.
Seems any LG gas dryer I look up parts for does not show the coil separate, such as this model.


Good to know some models you can get just the coils for, thanks.
