Severe noise - drum is jammed and won't turn - LG DLE-5977 dryer


A piece of clothing is probably caught in the blower wheel.
Remove lint filter.
Use flashlight to look into filter housing to the lower left.
You may be able to retrive the item if you can see it.
Try rotating the drum in both directions while looking.

Dryer stopped heating


Problem not very specific. If the srum is rotating and no heat appears, it's probably the thermostats. Depending on model, they are usually found on or near the heater at the back. There's usually two but both need to be changed. Check them for continuity first.

I have a Miele dryer, model T494C. The system starts rotate right then stops and when rotates left and immediatly the main relay of the house falls. After three days the dryer works fine. Is there...


It's most likely one of the heat/humidity sensor tubes that needs to be replaced. This has happened twice to my T494C in 12 years. Miele (or your dealer) will come out and replace it for a cost. Do NOT leave wet clothes (or semi-dry clothes) in the dryer for any length of time when the dryer is not operating. Apparently this is one of the problems.

Hi. Our dryer will start normally and then the


HI. This will occur when the there are issues that concern the integrity of the timer motor. This mechanism is responsible for the rotation of the timer module.It is damaged at this time, and it must be replaced asap.

A damaged timer motor will affect the nature of the drying cycle. It is the main initiator of all functions during the selected cycle.

Hear a periodic banging during rotation of the drume


usually you can check it at the back cover, check if the dryer tub is directly mounted or connected to the motor, then check the rubber stabilizer or spring stabilizer of the motor which is connected to the base. This stabilizers are responsible of the balance of the dryer tub during high speed operation or rotation of the motor. check this stabilizers and replace it if it is defective or weak.

and one thing more, just make sure that when load your wet clothes see to it that you load it at the center of the dryer tub, so that when the motor starts to spin at speed it is in a balance position.
