Question about LG DLE2532W Electric Dryer

1 Answer

DLE2532W Not heating

The appliance repair man has put three different thermal switches in it, they keep blowing. He suggested our venting was plugged. Has a duct cleaner come and he found no problems. The last time it was changed out we left the dryer venting into the house. Lasted a day and blew again.

LG Electric dryer keeps blowing thermostat, vent is OK

sure..this is actually a back pressure issue...when you used the twisty flexible hose, there is less reverse back pressure..

so, with the thermal mass from a 90 degree turn, it's most likely causing a heated air back flash, making the thermostat work harder, shortening it's life..

you might want to consider putting an inline fan, past the 90 degree turn(internal to the vent pipe) and let that exhaust the air at that point, instead of allowing thermal convection to be the sole propeller for this setup.

You need to replace the operating thermostat along with the thermal fuse. This thermostat controls temperature in the drum and if it fails, it will just put out heat constantly without regard to temperature. Be sure to check the exhaust vent in the house walls to make sure they're cleaned. Good luck

I have model REX3514PQ0 that I purchased from Lowe's in 2005. It is a Heavy Duty, Extra Large Capacity, 3 Cycle dryer. The dryer will turn on and will blow but only cold air. A friend suggested I check...

There are three switches :: high heat thermostat, low heat thermostat, and thermal limit switch.

Could the the thermal limit switch is opened because the dryer overheated -- these cannot be reset -- need replacing.

Could also be a faulty heating element. To test these components you'll need an ohmmeter (multi-meter) and will need to remove the back of the dryer.

More info, let me know.

My dryer won't heat anymore, could it be the heat element?

It could be the heating element, but it could also be the thermal switch, a round button that can sense the heat. One of the wires that go to the heating element go through the thermal switch. It's held on by two screw and is an easy repair.

I have an older model kenmore 110.96529810 dryer. I just replaced the heating element and it still isnt heating up...whats next

You need to check the "Thermal fuse","thermal cut-off" and "high-limit thermostat". Check all three with a multimeter for continuity. Replace as needed.

Sounds like the heater element is bad that is the main cause for them not to heat up . Their should be a cover on the back that comes off and you can get to the heater element after removing it .

No heat here either

It appears so. Plugged dryer vent should not cause a problem with control board. Good service tech should be able to use a cordless drill powered brush to clean entire length of vent, providing the vent is not the flex plastic ****. A simple clamp on amp meter test would confirm the dryer element (electric model) to be working. I'd advise you to turn your dryer on and see if you have a strong flow of air out of the outside dryer vent cap. (outside the house, where the bird nest was) Sounds like you could possibly use a new dryer vent cap, with a bird screen cover and a large 4 inch flap. (not the low profile 2 inch flap)
