Question about LG DLE3777 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer door opens in the middle of drying.

My dryer door has just started opening in the middle of a drying cycle and turns the dryer off. I found if I push the door in at the top left I can reset the dryer and it works again. How do I get the door to seal properly so it doesn't keep opening up during the drying cycle?

Check the door strike and the plunger to see if one of them has broke.

SOURCE: LG Gas dryer doesn't dry clothes in one cycle

Have you checked your outside vent while it was running to see if the dryer was venting 100%. If your clothes are hot and humid I would say clean your vent pipe has a blockage and needs to be cleaned out. Also as far as the burning smell you could take the front off (unplug first) the dryer of by removing 4 screws one above and one below the latch and two at the bottom and there are two clips one at the top left and right push in with a puddy knife and lift the top up a couple inches and lift the front up off the bottom holders. Then you will have access to vacuuming the lint that is floating around the burner.

SOURCE: Loud screeching noise from dryer.

sounds to me like the nylon pieces that isolate the drum from the front of the door are gone, you may want to open it up and take a look at it. Is it an old dryer? Its either that or I suppose it could be the bearing in the middle of the back but I dont think it would be in only certain parts of a rotation, it would be all. Im sure the drum probably just ate through the nylon seperator.Theres not much else that only makes noise part of the time.. and theres not many moving parts.
Im not sure if there are replacement pieces for this but you can google it.

SOURCE: Our new lg dryer model #DLE1310w is not drying

Recheck the vent all the way to the outside and make sure the vent hose is not smashed behind the dryer.

Long time to dry complaints almost always are due to a restricted vent.

Remove vent to dryer and test a wet load if they dry ok then the house vent is at fault.

SOURCE: DLG5988S gas dryer takes long time to dry cloths

How long is the exhaust venting system from the dryer to the outside, where it vents? The dryer is not equipped to push air through any pipe that is too much past 8-10'. Each 90 degree bend in the pipe adds 3-5', so a few feet plus a few 90 degree turns makes it nearly impossible for the dryer to do a good job drying clothes. I own a Tjernlund LB1 dryer boost fan and it works wonderfully - a great solution to drying clothes in a reasonable amount of time with much less wear and tear on my dryer.

Here is another idea - I recently opened up my dryer to fix a problem and found that the interior exhaust pipe - the part that takes the exhaust air out of the dryer, into the vent pipe on the back of the dryer and eventually outside - had become disconnected INSIDE the dryer. The dryer itself was full of lint and the air wasn't getting out of the dryer at all. If you have this problem you'll also have a lint problem, so check this out - it would be an easy thing to fix.

How do you dry clothes in this machine please


A fairly common problem! The official instructions are

Before using your dryer, wipe the dryer drum with a damp cloth to
remove dust from storing and shipping.
1. Load clothes loosely into the dryer and close the door. Do not
pack the dryer. Allow space for clothes to tumble freely.
2. Turn the Cycle Control knob to the recommended cycle for the type of load being dried. Use the Energy Preferred Automatic Setting (,) to dry most heavyweight and medium weight loads. See "Drying, Cycle, and Temperature Tips."
3. Select a temperature setting on models with a Temp/Fabric selector. The cycle descriptions include temperature setting suggestions.
4. Push the START button.

Stopping and Restarting
You can stop your dryer any time during a cycle.
To stop your dryer
Open the dryer door or turn the Cycle Control knob to OFE
NOTE: The Cycle Control knob should point to an Off area when
the dryer is not in use.
To restart your dryer
1. Close the door.
2. Select a new cycle and temperature (if desired).
3. Press START

Wont cycle to dry clothes


When the dryer door is open, you should be able to find a switch (it may be just a button protruding from the cabinet). The switch turns the machine off when the door is opened. It may be damaged or worn out.

Dryer stops in the middle of cycle


The door latch has failed, that's why your dryer stops. When the door opens it stops the drum and turns off. Fix the latch.

My dryer makes a buzzing noise when I push the start button


My Hotpoint dryer is seven years old and did the exact same thing. When I got over the anger and the thought of spending 4 or 5 hundred dollars to replace it I started messing with it. I finally decided that since it buzzed when I tried to start it there was current there. The only other thing it could be was the drying cycle knob.
I held the start knob and let it buzz while I slowly turned the dryer cycle knob to the right. As I turned through each cycle it would hit "off" and the buzzing would stop and then resume as I moved past the "off " setting. On the third trip around the dryer "started" and has been working since. Maybe something got out of kilter. Apparently the problem was in the knob that controls the drying cycles.

Dryer heats up but clothes won't dry


Sounds like to me, that you need to check the vent going outside from the dryer. I had the same problem, and found a birds nest in the dryer vent on the outside of my house restricing air flow. If that doesn't fix the problem, look into a new heating element and or thermostats for the dryers. The old ones could just not be getting hot enough anymore. Good luck.
