    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.

    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.

Power button stays depressed and does not start power menu. power is on, drum light is lit.

You will need to replace the control panel. The button is pressed in the down position and won't allow you to do anything else till this part is replaced.

Where the time usually is displayed it says " CL"


Assuming it as LG DLE2514 Electric Dryer CL means the Child Lock has been activated to avoid any harm to the children. To reset the dryer you'll need to press and hold dry level for 5 seconds. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

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
