    Thanks for looking for manual. Can't check machine tag (don't own one yet). I need this info to decide whether I can squeak thru with my current wiring.

Should have a name plate that lists the wattage or amperage.
Typically Dryers have 4000 to 5000 watt elements and have to be fused at 30 Amp. (Or breaker must be 30A)
Motor is much less current or wattage. The element uses the lion's share of power.
I looked for a manual but LG doesn't have one available.

    OK
    Lets talk about your power supply, etc.
    1) Do you currently have an outlet for a dryer?
    2) Do you have an electric range? Water heater?
    3) Do you know the size of your electric service?
    Also, do you have fuses? Breakers?
    Either way, are there spare circuits available?

    I will have more with answers.

Why would my new 1500 watt inverter readout show overload 13.8 volts entering


It would show overload if you're drawing more power than it can supply. 1500 Watts is a very high output for an inverter but that is the maximum it's capable of. As with any electrical supply you should not draw the maximum power it's capable of as this can cause it to burn out. Around 1200 would be the max you should draw continuously. You need to check the power requirements of whatever you're running on it. Also you need to check that it's capable of taking 13.8 volts. If 12 volts is the recommended input, putting in 13.8 will increase the voltage output which could damage appliances being run on it.

Suddenly my inverter connected lights stopped working, i went and saw what happened to my inverter, everything was fine in terms of lights that it indicates in normal conditions, only i saw a fuse was...


The most likely reason is that you tried to draw more power than it was capable of supplying. The maximum amount the inverter can supply is usually measured in watts and should be written on it. If the inverter can supply 60 watts it should in theory be able to operate a 60 watt bulb. In practice however if you draw the maximum that the inverter can supply it will cause something to give. You should use no more than 45 watts from a 60 watt inverter i.e. approx three quarters of the rated watts.

LG DLE2514W Power does not stay on. Power cuts


If you move the cord @ the outlet and the dryer shuts off replace outlet if the prongs on the cord are not damaged.

If you wiggle at the dryer side and it shuts off un plug the dryer remove acess cover and inspect end of cord. Ck. and make sure terminal nuts are tight. and not burnt due to a loose connection.

LG Dryer Sensor


The moisture sensor is in the lint filter. Remove 4 screws from inside the drum and you have the sensor attached by 2 wires. On my dryer I disconnected then reconnected these 2 wires, reassembled the lint trap and auto dry works fine again
