Have you fixed this yet? It has been over 3 months since and I guess you might have already had it repaired.

LG Electric Dryer DLE2140W, it keeps running plus no heat. It says check filter, but filter is all clear.

Dryer will only turn off when cloths are dry. Seems like you have a failed heat circuit. If electric, first reset the circuit breaker (double) a couple of times. If gas, call a tech.

Why does my LG Tromm DLG3788W gas dryer keep tripping the heating sensor? Dryer vent is free and clear, drum turns freely and seals are good.

check the heater coils (ohm check IAW with mfg spec). There might be a pair in parallel and one set shorted out.t.

My LG Tronn Dryer will not turn. The Check Filter light was on and we cleaned the filters and it went off. The dryer hums when the power is on but does not come on or the drum does not move. The drum

listen carefully to the hum if it sounds like the motor is running its a broken belt, if it sounds like its not turning it could be the capacitor on the motor.

Model DLE2301R LG dryer. I think the 15 amp circuit board fuse is blown because th wife dropped a fork when cleaning the lint filter cavity. The dryer made a noise and shut down, she turned the drum and...

check to see if the dryer is getting power, and you will have to open the dryer up and remove the fork, Disconnect Power First. I am assuming that something shorted out, so check the main fuse. Tim

Severe noise - drum is jammed and won't turn - LG DLE-5977 dryer

A piece of clothing is probably caught in the blower wheel.
Remove lint filter.
Use flashlight to look into filter housing to the lower left.
You may be able to retrive the item if you can see it.
Try rotating the drum in both directions while looking.

LG DLE5977 electric dryer, 3 years old. On power up: check filter display is lit. When cycle selction is made and start button is pressed, unit begins to heat, but dryer drum will not turn. Unit hums. I...

Your belt is likely broken. I am presuming you DO NOT have a setting on your machine that allows the drum to not turn or if yours does have such a setting you have not selected it!!!

I am not intimately familiar with your particular LG model even though rates me a LG expert.

Dryer tops are generally held in place with spring clips. Pop the top being careful to not mar the finish. Look for the belt (about 3/8 inch or so wide). The belt will be near the middle of the drum. Try to pick it up. If it is broken, you will be able to remove it. If it has slack in it but you can't remove it, it is probably off the motor pulley. Put it around the pulley through the belt tensioner.

Remove the front - use care you don't damage any wires.

The drum will fall free at this point. Take pictures with your cell phone to aid in reassembly.

My lg tromm DLG3788W gas dryer is not heating, it says check filter. other wise it works fine. where is the filter at, i know the one where i open the door and clean the vent everytime i use it. thanks

I just cleaned those sensors at the bottom of the filter, it worked like a charm. The dryer is now drying perfectly, I did not know you were not supposed to use fabric sheets with this dryer. Now I know, Thank you for the good information.

My LG dryer will not dry anymore. Lint is only on 1/4 of the lint screen when I pull it out. It takes about 3 hours for one load to dry

First check that the duct is clear of obstructions.

A quick way is to place a wet towel in the dryer, remove the duct from the wall and let the machine vent inside of the house. run it at high heat without the filter screen in.

While it is running check for good air flow by placing your hand near the dryer vent. Also note if there is any heat. also listen for the sounds of the drum turning.

If there is good flow and good heat then the filter screen of duct needs cleaning. Inserting the filter screen and running the test again will tell you which it is. If there is a noticeable difference between filter in and filter out then the filter needs cleaning.

If there is good flow and no heat then the dryer element needs to be checked and either a thermostat or element replaced.

If there is no flow then the blower needs to be replaced.

If there is no drum spinning but heat and flow then the belt needs to be replaced ( Extremely unlikely)

If all of these conditions check out then you will need to call a tech in to diagnose.
