SOURCE: What to Do If a

If yourdryer is not heating, check your dryer's venting. First thing to check is to see if you aregetting air flow to the outside through your vent hood. Next, check your voltage to see if you aregetting 220 volts to your outlet. Youcan do this by taking a volt meter set at 250 volts. Take the red leg of the volt meter to the oneside and the black leg to the other side. If the volt reader reads 220 then you are getting the propervoltage. Finally, if you are getting 220volts then it is your dryer heating elements. On a 220 volt for the dryer one leg is for the motor and leg is for theelement. If you are getting 220 volt thenit is your heating elements that are bad.

It seems quite possible that the fault seems linked very closely with the main program controller unit. So it is important to take the program controller unit and check on the power to the processor. Check the power supply voltage and voltage feed to the processor. If the processor in not reacting then it might be best to change the board as a whole.
As a final resort, check or solder the board connections,check all leads and connnectors to see if the board/processor resets.

SOURCE: When I push the start

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your post I'd suspect the belt has broken, come off it's pulley system or the kill switch is defective. These dryers have a "kill switch" by the motor that prevents the unit from starting if the belt breaks or comes off.

The service of LG dryers is mostly from the front, with some at top. As far as tear-down/repairing most LG dryers is essentially the same.

**insure the unit is unplugged from the first**

Now remove the top via taking out two screws at the back, slide it towards the back and inch or so and lift up, it will come off.

Next step is to remove the control panel. It will snap off the the top part, and some have a screw located on either side, i.e.

pull up or pry with a small screwdriver to release console clips from notches in metal support...

Pull the console towards you slightly (from front facing it) and reach in and disconnect the wire harness.

Set the console to the side ...

Now to remove the front panel...careful here the edges are sharp. Remove the screws at the top, and the two inside the door by the lint screen i.e.
Now the front panel will come forward enough to unplug the lamp...

Move the front panel to the side and you should be able to access and check the belt and switch. This is what to look for...


If the belt is off you can simply put it back on, obviously if it is broke you'll need to replace it.

Hope that helps get you fixed up, or moves you forward at least. Let me know what you find.

Good luck. Keep me posted.

SOURCE: My Kenmore 110.66962501 dryer doesn't start.

if your sure the thermal fuse is good,, check the start switch,, making sure the dryer select setting is set to something other than off, also, the door switch . you can Jumper both these switches, I'd try the door switch first as they go out more often . if you have a meter and want to test the switch Some door switches have only two metal prongs extending from the body, while others have three. Those with three terminals will have a common (COM) terminal, a normally closed (N.C.) terminal, and a normally open (N.O.) terminal. Those switches with only two terminals will have either a common terminal and a normally open terminal, or a common terminal and a normally closed terminal. We are providing directions for testing a door switch with three terminals. If you are dealing with a door switch that has only two terminals, ignore the part of this test that does not apply to you.Use your ohmmeter to test your switch for continuity. Begin by setting your ohmmeter to measure resistance at a scale of R x 1. If yours is a two-wire switch, touch each tester probe to each of the switch's terminals. You should receive a reading of infinity. While the probes are still touching the switch's terminals, press in on and hold the switch. The reading should change to zero.

Does my LG DLE5001W dryer have a reest button ?

Check your power panel for a tripped circuit breaker. There will be two breakers with their handles joined. Sometimes one will trip but not both. This causes only 120 volts to be applied to the dryer which runs everything but the heating element. Replacing the breaker will solve the problem

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 ..

LG DLE5001W Dryer Lights Up but won't accept programming commands or operate

I would guess new belt is slightly misrouted. From front, belt comes down left side of drum and goes around belt tensioner and then back to the motor pulley. Without the tensioner pulled to the left, the safety switch will still be tripped. Pulling tensioner to the left completes the circuit to the motor and allows motor to run.

it may be in the start button or it may be a sensor on the door is not working properly. you also may have a breaker issue. on alot of dryers you have a 2 pole breaker and if you lose one side of the power at that breaker it can lose some of its capacity to operate certain functions on your appliance
