Question about LG DLE5977 Electric Dryer
We purchased the LGE59777S about 2 years ago. I can recall how impressed I was at how hot things were and how fast things dried. Lately I have to put the clothes through 2 or 3 cycles to have them completely dry, especially towels. They can take over 1 hour to dry. (This can not be normal) I have even bumped up the drying time. If the cycle time is 54 minutes, it runs, beeps and feels damp, so I will run it again with more dy time. It could say 60 minutes and then in about 20 it beeps and is slightly dyer, but still not dry. The clothes feel warm, but not hot. After purchasing a dyer cleaning brush system, I completely took apart the venting system and cleaned everything out. I had my husband go outside when I turned the dryer on to make sure it was blowing out, it was. What could the problem be?
There is a little sensor that tells the dryer when to heat and when not to heat. that sensor is bad. If you take the back of the dryer off you will see it. It is about the size of a half dollar and has 2 wires that plug into it. While you have it apart make sure that the dryer vent on the back of the dryer is not plugged with lint. Major cause for fires in dryers.
