I have a 2 year old LG DLE5001w dryer. It stoped heating heater element replaced on 11/21/14. Worked 2 loads stopped heating, replaced switch, worked 3 loads stopped heating replaced thermostats. Did

Most Dryers has a thermal switch that when the air flow gets so hot it will shut down the dryer until it cools down or on some models the thermal switch has to be replaced .. The most common problem to cause this is a restricted air flow somewhere in the exhaust of the heated air causing the dryer to reach too high of temp, which could cause a fire .. Hope this information is help full......

I was drying rugs and one of the rugs got caught and the drum stopped turning. The power comes on but the dryer drum will not turn.

Hello, one possible cause of dryer drum not rotating is the rugs stuck between the drum and front panel.Secondly, maybe the dryer belt dispart.

dryer about 5-6 years old and does about 5-6 loads per week. last 2 months, with medium to heavy loads, has developed a loud squeak that coincides with drum rotation. light loads cause a lesser squeak, and as clothes dry the squeak quiets down. idler pulley bearings maybe?

drum rollers/glides, may be that the motor needs to be oiled, in which case you will need to unplug dryer and drill a hole in the casing not to deep just to where it goes through the casing, then moisten the cotton fabric. Hope this helps Tim:

kenmore 800 dryer burning smell and noise.

Access is from the front. Lint screen on top? 2 screws under screen, putty knife to release front clips between top and cabinet. Top folds back and 2 5/16 screws in top corners. Lean front towards you then lift up off lower hangers. Good luck.....

after 6 loads of clothes dryer will not start for the 7th load.after waiting for approx. 60 mins. dryer starts up and functions as normal

After 6 loads...yeh, well the dryer is obviosly overheating. It takes awhile to cool down, and then will operate as normal again.
When it overheats, the thermostat activates, and stops the dryer from running until it cools down.
But why does it overheat? Have you been cleaning the lint filter after every load, as recommended? If not, this can cause the problem because of restricted airflow. Have you been overloading the dryer? Again, this can cause overheating.
Something to check; when the dryer has normal load, try carefully rotating the drum by hand, in its normal direction of rotation. If it is very stiff to turn, or scraping, then that can cause this problem also. Maybe a bearing problem can cause the stiffness or scraping. I hope its not the problem.
Let me know how it goes please.
