Question about Dryers

1 Answer

I have an LG TDC70080E condenser tumble dryer. It has worked perfectly for 2.5 years and now is playing up (suprising, considering it is just out of warranty!) There are two issues: 1. The drum is not wanting to turn round properly. The symptoms are that when the drying setting is on cottons, and you press start, you hear the motor buzzing a little and the drum doesn't move. If you change the setting to Wool, and press start, the drum statrs turning. Then, stop, switch back to cottons and the drum turns perfectly. I have taken the side off the dryer and found that when on cottons and I hear the 'buzzing' - if I nudge the drum slightly, it will start turning. Figuring it was maybe a little stiff somewhere, I found that the belt tensioner was sticking. I took it apart, oiled it and put it back together. Now it works a little better, but after the machine has been on for a while (say 60mins), the drum stops turning properly, and then whe I try to restart it, I have the same symptoms as before (need to select wool setting etc). If I wait until the unit is cold, it starts properly. It is not particularly hot, and there is no smell of burning because when it gets to the point where the drum stops turning, the dryer displays 'clean the filter' - even though the filter is clean. I am thinking that the motor is wearing out, but am not sure. I have not come across an electric motor that has become tired. In my experience, they either work or don't work... rather than 'lose power' as this one seems to. 2. The second issue is that when the unit is attempting to pump out the condensed water, it makes an amazingly loud rattling sound. I assume this the the drain pump. Can this loud noise be resolved by cleaning the pump or do I need to replace the pump unit? Any help would be very much appreciated! Thanks in advance.

    OK - I found out what the problem was...



    1. The capacitor which controls the operation of the motor was knackered. It's a large metal capacitor and apparently wears out due to the high temperatures you get in a dryer.

    I replaced the £11 capacitor (Seme Nedis are the best place to buy), oiled all the moving bits while I hand the unit open and now I'm back in business!!

    The fix was so easy - I am really glad I didn't call in an engineer!



    2. Once the unit was back working properly and there was water passing through the drain pump the noise seemed to reduce. It's not as good as it was when I first bought the unit - but it isn't that bad.



    Hopefully this post wil help someone else in future.

    I have a TB condensing tumble dryer, model TM310W, which has always worked well, but lately, although the clothes are drying, there doesn't seem to be much water going into the reservoir. I can't find it...


    The first decision you must make when buying a tumble dryer is whether to buy a vented or a condenser dryer. As you'd expect, there are pros and cons for both. This page helps you understand all of the differences, including the reliability and repair implications. Condensor tumble dryers are becoming more popular but vented tumble dryers still have some advantages and the convenience of not needing a venting hose (as always) requires some compromises.
    Until I can put together my own reviews the best Tumble Dryer reviews available online are by Which?
    Due to their resources and independence, Which? usually have the latest reviews and collect the opinions and experiences of thousands of members - Which? tumble dryer reviews (Plenty of free information but will need to be a subscriber (take advantage of the 1 month trial offer to get the full benefit)
    Vented tumble dryers are cheaper than condenser dryers, they are also simpler, more reliable and more economical to run. According to Which? "on average, vented tumble dryers use about a fifth less energy than condenser dryers to dry a full load of cottons."
    So why bother with a condenser tumble dryer? Well condenser tumble dryers are a convenience product but they do offer a solution to a genuine problem for some where venting the dryer outside is difficult or even impossible.
    My advice would be that if your tumble dryer can be sited somewhere that allows you to correctly vent it outside, either through a wall or through a window, then a vented dryer is probably best. If this would be particularly awkward, then buy a good quality condenser dryer, which should condense the steam into water.
    Modern washing machines now have a far superior spin speed, and, of the ones we recommend, the cheaper model has a 1200 spin speed, the other a 1400 spin speed... so your washing will be fairly reasonable (some items could be about ready to iron) and this, in turn, could affect your other choices.
    Could you get away with just airers and a washing line? Or have you considered a dehumidifier?
    A Spin Dryer... will work efficiently, and is cheap. The main advantage to it is that it is only the size of a large pedal bin, so it can be stored under the worktop in a small amount of space.
    A Tumble Dryer... much more expensive... for a decent quality item you need to pay a quite steep price. They do a good job, but are another full size kitchen appliance to find room for.
    A Washer/Dryer... instead of a washing machine... disadvantages, if it goes wrong then you have no back up in either the washing or drying department... and of course being a more complicated piece of machinery, it IS more likely to break down! The only advantage is that it will be a space saving item.]

    You have a plugged exhaust vent in the house wall.  Remove the vent from the back of the dryer and run the dryer.  The problem should go away.  You will need to call a qualified vent cleaning company to remove the lint restrictions inside the wall.

    Sounds like the condense pump is bad. Replace it, or look if there is lint in it. ;)
