Question about LG DLE2514 Electric Dryer

2 Answers

Wet clothes take two 'trips' to dry.

We have the LG 2515S electric front end dryer. We've owned it for about 3 years now, bought it new at Home Depot. My wife has complained that it doesn't dry the clothes on the first go-around. She cleans the lint filter regularly. I've cleaned out the exhaust duct in the back. It's not like it doesn't heat/dry...just seems to take twice the amount of time on every load.

    Same problem for us. LG says the dryer is "designed" to leave the clothes wet. We sometimes have to run the sensor dry cycle as many as three times

    I have the same dryer and it seems to be doing the same thing. I'm on the fourth time drying and when I open the door, the clothes are warm, still damp, but there is moisture on the door and surrounding it. Please help....there is nothing blocking the vent from the outside but it is really cold here. Although, it has been working fine through 3 really cold winters and I've never had this problem before.

    Same issue on my LG, and IT IS NOT THE VENTING! How do I know? I disconnected the vent at the machine, letting the warm air into the house. I cleaned the machine thruroughly and still the cooling light stays on all times, clothes are warm but still damp... nbut but not as warm as they should be. A thermostat/sensor problem?

    Same here too. Wish I would have read about this before I sunk my hard-working money into it.

    arrgggg!! My dryer is less than 3 years old and we bought it at Best Buy. It takes sometime 3x as long as the washer to dry things. I bought this thinking the quick wash/dry would be 'quick'.. nope! I cleaned out the venting to the outside and disconnected the hose. I cleaned everything out... it's pretty pathetic!

    no matter what I dry on what temp, the clothes don't dry, even after several trips through. I set it for 60minutes and it stops after 10. Its only a year old.

UNPLUG THE DRYER THEN PRESS THE MORE TIME , AND THE LESS TIME BUTTONS AND THE POWER BUTTON FOR ABOUT 10 SECONDS. THEN WAIT FOR 3-5 MINUTES THEN PLUG THE DRYER BACK UP . SEE IF THAT WORKS BY THAT RESET.

Sounds like a blockage in the vent to outside birs nest or something blocking airflow

Life span of a dryer


the first thing you should do is clean out any lint in the exhaust side of the venting area. it could be overheating from that and shutting the heat off too soon.. on an electric dryer the heater part either works or it doesnt. element should be fine in this case i suspect..

Whirlpool Duet Steam Dryer Beeps 3 Times But Does Not Start


Brand new unit - same problem. After an hour of investigating, I found the issue.
You don't actually have to SLAM the door. If you look closely, there are 3 separate pins that must latch. One is a simple push-button style which latches no problem.
The others are little prongs at the top and bottom of door. The bottom prong latches cleanly, but the top one will not latch because the door is a bit too flexible.
Close the door normally, then firmly press on the top edge of the door. You will hear the final latch grab, then you press and hold the start button. The dryer starts normally.
Yay!

LG washing machine has AWFUL mildew smell


Same here. We bought ours January 2005. Love the machines and take great care of them, too. Then the smell in the washer which seemed to affect certain clothes, like thick sweat pants and t-shirts (they smelled really "sour"). After doing some searches I found on this site where someone had recommended using a product called Affresh. I figured I might as well try it since my other attempts failed. This really worked for me. I bought it at Home Depot for $7 for a pkg of 3. I used 3 tablets per their directions, as this was my first time using it (afterwards they recommend using only 1 tablet per month). I was totally amazed as the smell was gone. I hope it works for you, too!

LG DLE5977 Electric Dryer


Below are some solutions that other customers have cited. The control board seems to have a glitch in it, so I would take it back and get a replacement. New product is covered by a factory warranty or a dealer replacement guarantee. My husband and I just BARELY bought an LG Electric Dryer. I'ts model #DLE2516W. As soon as you hit the power button, "check filter" comes on. The right after that, the error code "Te1" flashes and it does nothing but beep. Clearly, the filter has NOTHING in it because I've never run a load of clothes thru it. When I look in the troubleshooting section of the owners manual, it tells me that this means that the thermistor is open and needs to be replaced. But I'm confused as to why a BRAND NEW dryer already needs a part replaced. Can ANYONE please help me. I have lots of laundry to do. Haha!
Comment by Amanda02, posted on Sep 11, 2007 Well... we took it back to Home Depot and they are replacing it. i was trying to fix it because it takes 3 weeks to get a new one. They don't have any in stock!! And it takes 3 darn weeks to get a new one.
