Question about LG DLE5977 Stainless Steel Electric Dryer
I own a LG DLE5977S and just moved into an older house requiring me to switch from a 4 prong pigtail to a 3 prong pigtail. As soon as I plugged it in I notice that it was louder than when I remember. I stopped it and noticed that the back seemed hot and I smelt "burnt hair."
3 or 4 prong power should have no bearing on the dryer performance..3 prong provides 2 power feed lines and a neutral versus a 4 prong system that provides the same two power feeds, a neutral and a ground.. so performance wise.. you should not expect any. The fact that it sounds louder is subjective and may be a function of the move. whereby something inside the dryer shifted a little when transporting it.. or the accoustics of the new room. If you smell something burning then I would check the exaust duct system for any material and/or restrictions.. It is possible that by moving your dryer..some lint, fibers from clothes or even human hair may have been dislodged and found there way into the blower/heater region and are burning off.. With the plug disconnected..Make sure your power cable terminations at the dryer are all snug. a loose connection there is dangerous and is resistive ( which means it will get hot) and in some cases.. could cause a fire so check that carefully..
In all probability..you may just have some lint or something that shifted during the move and is burning away...
