Question about LG DLE5977 Electric Dryer
I have an electric LG dryer, 5977W, less than 1 year old. It takes 1 1/2 to dry a normal size load, even on manual dry w/o sensor dry. It is not a vent problem, cleaned and checked, even disconnected to rule that out, including cleaning the machine internally. Temps out the back over 200 degrees, which per the repair tech is way over normal. With higher than normal temps, you would think it would dry faster, but it in one full hour the clothes are damp. and no I do not use any fabric sheets. The last tech to look, had another customer on the same day with the asme problem, he thinks there is a defect with this dryer, LG is not admitting they know anything is wrong. This dryer cost 1,000. please help , any solutions. They already replaced a thermostat and drum for noise, altough I didn't htink that as necessary
Do not keep it higher temp unless bedsheets are inside.For normal clothes temp must be at normal level.If more steam remains inside then only clothes will remain damp.Look out for correct RPM.This problem comes due to drive belt also. Even it looks tight just replace blindly.Hope this will solve your problem.All the best to you.

LG products are absolutely atrocious. I have the same problem and they have done nothing to help..in fact, they don't even know what they're doing. I've had a service tech. out here twice. He diagnosed that it wasn't belt or blower fan, but a faulty computer. LG ordered the wrong computer for the machine twice..finally got the right one and the machine still didn't work. I've filed a complaint with Better Business Bureau. I'm on to the Attorney General next after seeing all of these complaints.

The problem is simple but there is not a thing you can do about it. These dryers spin to fast; therefore, the centrifugal force doesn't allow your clothes to tumble. Is that crappy engineering or what?
