Question about LG Dryers

1 Answer

Re: dryer DLEV833W The heat in the dryer doesn't get very hot, whatever the setting. It only seems to get warm and takes ages to dry anything. I noticed the 'damp dry' light is always on, it won't turn off - does this have something to do with it?

Clothes not drying


Clothes not drying? Thats it? Does the dryer turn on at all? Does it tumble the clothes but doesn't get warm? If it turns on and tumbles but takes a long time to dry, then your heating element is not working. There is a thermal fuse right before the heating element that will open up if the vent becomes clogged and its gets too hot. The thermal fuse is not resettable and will have to be replaced. If the thermal fuse is o.k. then your heating element could be burned out. These two items almost require an electrical meter to read continuity to check them. Make sure the dryer is unplugged before checking these items.

Dryer is hot when opened, but takes 3 or 4 timed cycles to get clothes dry on very dry setting and timed setting


Check for a restriction in exhaust system,not just behind unit but all the way to outside vent,should feel warm decent airflow at outside vent.If not all you will end up with is warm moist clothes,You need good airflow to take away the moisture in the clothes not just heat.This issue can happen slowly over time and next thing you know its taking two or three times longer to dry even though when you open the door its hot inside.
Good luck

My Maytag Quite Plus clothes dryer gets warm but not as hot as it use to. It seems to take a very long time to dry clothes. Vent is clear. The moisture gage seems to flicker lately.


most dryers have two heating elemts and when one goes out this increases the drying time and could cause a elec. short and trip a braker can be replaced.. There is also a saftey switch that goes bad and will not let the heating elemt work properly ?

Dryer warm but not hot, long dry times


some times there are multiple heating elements in there and if one is out it does not get as hot. another simpler place to start would be to make sure your line is clear of debries all the way from dryer to out doors. this is a good idea any way since lint build up can cause the occasional house fire.

Dryer takes too long to dry my clothes


My dryer has been taking longer and longer to dry my clothes. Sometimes it takes multiple cycles before the clothes become dry. They seem to be getting warm, but are not drying as quickly as they use to.

Clothes dryer not getting hot enough to dry in a good time frame


I have the same issue with my DLG3788W dryer. It seem to have only one setting for heat, rather than multiple heat settings. What can I do or do I have to call someone to repair this.

Problem with my Kenmore 62622 Electric Dryer


It could be the elements inside dryer, one or more could be bad, the different settings causes the dryer to do different things, so whatever your setting on ultra dry may not be operating at full force. Hope this helps.
