Question about LG DLE2532W Electric Dryer

1 Answer

My dryer went "pop"

Ok, i had someone hook up my dryer and it was done incorrectly. when i put the dryer in use, it made a really loud noise, so i immediately turned it off. soon after, a burning smell started to arise, and shortly after the dryer was disconnected by the power cord, it made a pretty obvious popping noise. i rearranged the wires correctly and reconnected the power cord, but at that point it wouldn't even turn on. it smells like burned wire, so i think i busted a circuit or something. with that part, im unsure. i just want to know what i need to do to fix the problem or if i need professional help, or a new dryer. i have an LG model # DLE2532W. any help you can offer me will be greatly appreciated. thanks, liz

Re: my dryer went "pop"

It could be your mains filter it is situated next to your motor if that has gone it wont work you can usually get one off another dryer doesnt have to be same make but it has to have same numbering on it but most are the same mate if this does work you might find burnt wiring at the inside front of your machine which leads to your door catch if that wiring is burnt out just replace wiring and it should work fine mate let me know what you find and ill try and suggest what you can do

The Dryer vent was accidentally left out of the dryer. It almost immediately started making a really loud noise. What is wrong?

Sounds like your cloths or anthing that was in the dryer that could have went down the vent, got cought in the blower wheel. you will need to inspect the blower wheel for the obstruction.

Tumble dryer works ok but its really really noisy.

Sounds like you have a bad drum bearing. It's seems loud because the clothes drum aplifies the noise. Depending how old it is will determine if repairing is worth the cost. Once you have decided that, replace the drum belt and check all bearings including motor. Clean out all lint which can become a fire hazard.

depending on what type of circuit protection you have on the dryer[ circuit breaker or the older screw in fuse ] is probably what you heard blowing . If the noise you heard came from the dryer , then it's time to check the connections in the dryer[after unplugging the power source to it] to see what has happened ,if you feel you are experienced enough to handle this type of operation. If you have any doubts about you ability to do this ,then don't!! Call an electrician and/or appliance repairman to do the inspection

Dryer doesnt do anything besides a loud noise

What kind of loud noise??  A loud electrical noise??  A loud squealing noise??
It's possible that there is a foreign matter inside the filter chamber jamming up the blower fan.  Pull the filter screen out and look down the filter chamber area and see if there is a sock jamming the fan from turning.  If you can pull it out, that should resolve your problem.  If not, you may need to call a qualified LG technician to resolve this issue.

Dryer making very loud noise.

We had the exact same noise all of a sudden start coming from our 2 year old dryer. We checked everything, rollers, pulleys, motors, etc. I was certain it was coming from the upper left. Finally we found a loose screw had fallen into the front felt ring. Problem solved!
Good luck.
