Question about LG DLE2514 Electric Dryer
The Drum on my 1.6 year old LG, DLE2512W Dryer will not turn. When I press the power button, power comes on, When I press the start button you can hear the motor start to hum (like its got power) but the drum will not turn. I took the top off and the belt is fine (from what I can see). Standing in front of the dryer, when I press the start button and the motor starts to hum, if I push the drum to the right (start rotation) the drum start turning and the dryer works perfect. Im guessing there is a problem with the starter windings in the motor or maybe the control board. I could really use some help. I had the same problem with an LG condenser dryer and I managed to get a replacement starter capacitor off eBay for about £5. Popped it in and everything burst back into life. An electric motor takes a lot of current to start up, so if you can get your motor going by hand, the startup cap is a good place to look first as it is pretty cheap to replace. For those of you who don't know, the cap is a fat cyclinder just over an inch thick and about 3 inches long. Be careful when handling them, even when the machine is off, as they are used to store a charge and can give you a shock when they discharge - even with the machine off and unplugged! As long as you don't touch the terminals with your finger, you will be safe. You can discharge them to be safe by simply shorting the terminals together with a screw driver. Hope this helps. Allan
