Hi, panamapinto,
Huuum at your service,
welcome to fixya.com
Did you try to reset the system?
Some times it is an electronic glitch and you can reset it by doing this simple procedure.
With an error code.
This can reset the system.
First unplug the washer and wait a 5 minutes then restart it.
It's like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
Usually it corrects some error problems if they are not serious.
Or they are sometimes just a glitch.
How old is the appliance?Write back and tell me the age of the dryer.

If this fails let me know!

Here is an interesting report I read recently.

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.


Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!

Whirlpool gas dryer will not gethot enough to dry


the usual problem is lint build up and or to long of a run for the exhaust tube..When was the last time you cleaned you dryer exhaust ? I had an issue where I had to run my dryer through 4 cycles before a load would get close to being dry. I thought I has cleaned out all the lint from the dryer.. Finally I just ripped out all my exhaust tunes and sure enough there was a a large amount of lint build up where the shop vac did not reach. SO i replaced all the exhaust tubing and since I have a long run I added an exhaust fan, now the dryere works like it should,..

Doesn't dry as quickly as it should-have to do 2 cycles to dry a load. It is about 7 years old. Is it worth fixing?


If the load is extremely large or heavy it may require more time. If you are using the auto cycle and the clothes are not drying then the sensor may be not operating correctly. Make sure the lint filter is clean and that the exhaust vent duct is not clogged. Check all the way to the outlet. If all is clear then the thermostat2.gif may need to be replaced if it is not calling for heat as often as it should. Also check to make sure there is air flow from the vent. If not then the fan/blower may be broken or disconnected from the motor shaft.

Why does the dryer overheat?


First guess is not enough airflow -- See how much air is blowing out the exhaust vent. If it seems weak, first make sure there is no excess lint in the exhaust path (check inside the dryer as well as the exhaust hose). If there still isn't enough air moving, the blower fan is likely loose on its shaft. If the dryer is overheating and you have very strong airflow, then the temperature detectors in the exhaust path are probably not ever telling the heating element it's warm enough. Check for loose wires, or you might have to replace the detector.

Whirlpool model # lgr7646ez3


Here are a list of causes that may contribute to this lack of sufficient drying.


CAUSE
• Lint screen is clogged with lint.
• Restricted air movement.
Exhaust vent or outside
exhaust hood is clogged with
lint.
• Exhaust vent is crushed or
kinked.
• One fuse is blown or circuit
breaker is tripped. The dryer
will appear to operate, but you
will not get any heat.
• Cycle Control knob or temperature
selector is set on air dry.
• Load not contacting the sensor
strips and automatic cycle
ending early.
• Fabric softener sheets blocking
exhaust grill.
• Dryer located in room with
temperature below 45ºF (7ºC).
• Large amount of moisture in
the load.
• Cold rinse water used.
• Load too large and bulky to
dry quickly.


Here are the solutions to combat the issues.


SOLUTION
• Clean lint screen.
• Run dryer for 5-10 minutes. Hold hand under
outside exhaust hood to check air movement. If you
do not feel air moving, clean exhaust system of lint
or replace exhaust vent with heavy metal or flexible
metal vent.
• Replace with heavy metal or flexible metal vent

• Replace fuse or reset breaker.
• Select the right cycle and temperature for the types
of garments being dried.
• Level dryer.
• Use only one softener sheet per load and only use
it once.
• Move dryer to a location with temperatures above
45ºF (7ºC).
• Expect longer dry times with items that hold more
moisture (cottons).
• Expect longer dry times.
• Separate load to tumble freely.

This will help you fix this problem. i suspect an exhaust obstruction.

Dryer heat output is 148, but takes several runs to dry clothes


You most likely have a ventilation problem somewhere in your exhaust line. This can be very dangerous and a fire risk. You need to do a thorough check of your vent pipe and make sure it is clear and the exterior trap door is working freely.

I have a large capacity front load LG electric dryer. I keep getting the "check filter" message & the filters are clean. The dryer will not stay on. HELP!


The message does not only refer to filters, badly written.
There is an air flow restriction that the machine senses and is warning about.
check the fan and fan housing for lint that has got past the screens, then pull the dryer away from the wall and check the exhaust duct for lint, all the way to the wall
then check the outside wall vent for lint build up in the rodent screen

My tumble dryer works ok but theres no heat been told i need a new thermostat but cant find one with my model number


Non-Specific answer - no dryer model given
The thermostat is likely not at fault,
there is on the exhaust duct of most dryers a thermal protector, thermal cutout, thermal fuse (and a half dozen other names for the same thing)
If the air temperature becomes too hot due to blocked exhaust ducts, lint in the fan, lint screen not emptied or someone opened the door in the middle of the cycle then closed it again. the device fails to protect the much more expensive heater coil and thermostat.
Trace the exhaust duct from the fan housing for a device that looks like this 07b92b9.jpg or this fd3277a.jpg with wires to the terminals.
Test with an ohmmeter or bulb and battery, conducts ok no conduct replace.
take the dud one to the local parts store,
there are very few thermal cutouts, common to many dryers, they will be in stock. and cost very little.
While the dryer is apart, is a good time to clear lint from exhaust hood, ducting, fan, fan housing, to prevent recurrence
