LG DLE2301 Dryer not heating

20 February 2011 - 09:45 PM

Greetings, gents and ladies of this fine forum. Let me tell you my tale so far:

A mere two weeks out of warranty and my LG dryer decides that heating up is no longer a thing it likes to do.

I've tried all the "cross your fingers and hope" kind of stuff:
1. Cleaned the lint tray and vent
2. Checked the breaker for any trippage
3. Removed clothing from the dryer and looked blankly into the drum

All this was for naught. Now I'm left with options that are significantly less palatable. I'm not afraid to crack this beast open, but I'm not sure what I'm looking for.

From cruising the forums, I figure I'm most likely in need of either a new heating element, an internal fuse, or some type of sensor. Besides the lack of heat, everything else seems to be just fine.

Any help you all can offer for next steps would be most appreciated. The clean and damp laundry is piling up around me!
