Question about LG DLE2101 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer beeps while drying

When drying close, the dryer begins to beep constantly with a high-low, high-low beeping sound. The child lock is engaged during the drying as well. It works fine, but I am worried that there is an underlying issue. Not sure why this is happening or if there is a manual that explains what the beep sequences mean.

Most likely you have an excess of lint hampering air flow from the dryer. Vacuum out lint filter area, gently remove aluminum exhaust duct behind dryer and make sure it is clear and debris free. Also check exhaust duct port on back of dryer and that the vent going out of your house is clean and not stuck closed or clogged.

I had the same problem...called LG and they said just reset the dryer by unplugging the dryer....I couldn't reach the plug so they told me to trip the breaker switch and that would also reset it....problem solved

SOURCE: Dryer doesnt do anything besides a loud noise

What kind of loud noise??  A loud electrical noise??  A loud squealing noise??
It's possible that there is a foreign matter inside the filter chamber jamming up the blower fan.  Pull the filter screen out and look down the filter chamber area and see if there is a sock jamming the fan from turning.  If you can pull it out, that should resolve your problem.  If not, you may need to call a qualified LG technician to resolve this issue.

SOURCE: LGE59777S Not drying

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.

My child lock on my Frigidaire is constantly beeping... The door is not locked but it is beeping...


Hello Shelley, thank you for your inquiry!

I understand your Frigidaire is constantly beeping while they door is unlock, however do you have a range or microwave Frigidaire appliance? The serial tag for a range, which lists your model number, is typically located in the storage drawer, on the right side and the serial tag for a microwave is in the lower left corner as you open the door. With this information I can better address the issue at hand. Thank you!

Beeping with no boot up


Beep codes mean something has gone wrong with the computer. Beep codes most likely happen for: Memory, Processor, Motherboard.

Try reseating the memory in the computer.

My dryer keeps beeping after 30seconds of turning it on. I have pressed the 'LOCK' key to unlock & even then it still does the beeping thing! Could this be the motherboard packing up?


I had the same problem. My wife was about to take an axe to the darn thing. The frustrating thing was that it was beeping 3 times and the status lights were flashing. The manual only described 4 beeps (Dryer ran too long) or 6 beeps (Push button does not function). It finally dawned on me that it was beeping two sets of three beeps (i.e 6 beeps). The corrective action was to press buttons lightly and release. I pressed on every button first lightly then heavily with no success. I pounded on the instrument panel; still no luck. Finally I pressed the Options button and the Select button simultaneously for a second and heard a click. After that, no more beeping. According to the manual this activates a "LOCK' feature if you hold them down long enough. But in my case, the lock light flashed but didn't engage and after the beeping stopped, I left well enough alone.

Hope this helps.

Beeping in my Neptune Dryer


This is a mystery to me. Try typing into google "beeping sound on Neptune dryer". There may be a solution on there from Neptune or someone who has had a similar problem.

Beeping


it could be the door switch had Samsung has had trouble with the tolerances on the doors.. the door switch will also keep the light on and the temperature will be unstable. you can test it by covering the door switch with some blue masking tape to hold it in and see if the beeping will stop...the other problems with the display sound like a faulty control board.. let me know if the beep stops..I would call samsung if it is still under warranty...
