LG DLE2101W Disassembly

My LG dryer turns on automatically whenever the door is shut. I imagine there is a relay somewhere, probably on the control board, that is stuck. I'd like to take a look, but am not sure how to go about disassembling the dryer.

SOURCE: LG DRYER DLE2532W DISASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS

DLE2532W is an electric heat model. (a gas model would be a DLG......) To get a rear control LG dryer apart: Open door and remove two phillips head screws at the 5 and 7 o'clock positions. Use a putty knife to release the clips holding the top panel to the dryer front by pushing the clips in at the seam of the dryer top and front, a couple inches in from each side. Swing top back. Remove two phillips head screws at the top, allowing front panel to pull forward. Unplug drum light and door switch and drum sensor plugs, allowing front panel to be completely removed and set aside. Now, look at the burner area at the lower right. Behind the gas valve you will find a small (about dime sized) high limit thermostat on the left side of the burner cone. It has two wires attached and has a small pin in the center of it. (Only on gas models) Push the pin in.
Now, if that get's you ignition again, CORRECT VENTING ! Get rid of flexible vent material. (use only rigid aluminum vent pipe and elbows) Clean out vent pipes and outside vent hood. Outside vent hood should be the kind with a four inch flap for the opening, not a two inch flap. Tripping of the high limit thermo is almost always caused by inadequate air flow.

SOURCE: LG dryer won't shut off - gets stuck at 6 minutes

Your problem seems to be the timer switch is faulty.
Timer switches are normally non-repairable. You would need to replace the faulty switch

Hello welcome to FixYa. The service of LG dryers is mostly from the front, with some at top, but you may have an easier time by taking it off the washer, its your call. How is the dryer mounted/secured to the washer ? Have you ruled out it isn't simply "bouncing" thus creating a tapping noise on the washer top ? If you have and the noise is from the front left, it is either a leveling leg, component of the drive assembly, or the blower/exhaust housing, you'll need to get inside to investigate. As far as tear-down/repairing most LG dryers is essentially the same. If you hang tight I will put together a generic LG step by step "how to" with pictures that will guide you through it. It is all from the front...virtually nothing is done from the back anymore. I'll wait for you reply to see if you're OK hanging tight since I won't have access to my PC until morning ( approx 8am mtn time ). Regards, Macmarkus :)

SOURCE: How to change a belt

UNPLUG the dryer. Take the front kick panel off. Take the door off. Lift the top and rest it on something. Remove whatever is in front of the drum. Remove the drum. While you have everything apart check for worn pulleys and rollers. Place new belt around drum, and replace drum. Make sure belt is around the tension pulley. Replace everything in reverse order. Plug the dryer in and you should be ready to go.

This may be a shorted relay on the control board, which can usually be economically repaired.

Or it may be a failing door switch or door switch mount. See these help files:

Does a dryer have areset button


Generally speaking no. It might be the control board or the power supply or the control panel that is bad. You can take the top off and there should be a set of technician instructions that say what to test.

MY LG DISHWASHER AND DRYER ARE DUDS


Hello,Sounds like a mechanical obstruction somewhere :->. Possible bad rollers or idler pulley. This could have snapped belt. Need to removed front door panel and lid to get at it. Open the door and rotate the inside drum by hand and see if it moves freely. If it does, you may rollers are probably good. Turn on power and listen for the motor turning on. If you hear a low hum then possible idler pulley or belt issue.LE error on DW - no quick fix here. I heard of wiring issues on the LG's, broken wires, that go from the control panel down to the motor/sensors/etc that result in this error code. I'm not up to speed on the LG dishwashers yet so maybe someone else can contribute.Rich

Roper dryer won't shut off


The timer motor isn't moving the timer. You'll need to replace the timer. Turning the timer **** to off should stop the machine.
Exception: If the shutting the door automatically starts the motor, then the start switch/relay is probably shorted.

Sharp Microwave oven controls do not work


You mean the turntable motor turns whenever the door is shut, even if you're not cooking?

If that's the case, then the problem would probably be a stuck relay (RY3) on the control circuit board, which we regularly repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.
