Lg dryer is overheating blowing the thermal fuse


you have an airflow problem. Check the vent hose all the way out and the outdoor vent hood.
a simple verification can be performed by disconnecting the vent hose from the dryer and see if this solves the problem.

Our Dryer runs but is not expelling heat. How can we fix this issue? The dryer only blows cold air. Thank you


check the vent line if clogged it will cause the sensors to trip off way too soon . that will not allow it too make any heat. check up inside the dryer as well if the vent is way clogged with lint the dryer will too. the vent should be cleaned twice a year

Stackable Kenmore model 110.98752. Dryer drum turns but no heat. Vent does not appear plugged since air does flow through to outlet.


With your volt ohm meter (VOM) check for 220 volts at the terminal block the cord attaches to.
If 220 is present, unplug the dryer and remove the rear panel.
With meter set to continuity check the thermostats and fuses on the heater as well as the heater coil. Remember to unplug the wires to each component to check them correctly.
You should read 120 volts from black to white and red to white for a complete circuit.

Look closely at the wires at the terminal for a burned wire.
No burned wire, open the wall outlet and inspect the wires and the female connections.

Read voltage at the wall connection for 220 volts and 120 volts from hot to neutral on both legs.
With the power disconnected you should take at least one wire off each thermostat and limit just to be sure you don't somehow get a false read.
If it runs at all and the heating element is OK then you most likely need a limit kit.
You dryer has a series of safetys. If the control thermostat fails, the filter housing gets blocked with lint, or the vent gets stopped up the heat could cause a fire. The bottom cannister thermostat limit is the lowest temp one 250F, it should shut down first if it fails then the limit mounted at the top of the cannister is set to Blow at 300F When it blows that is an indication of an external vent blockage. If the problem is from within the dryer then the fuse mounted on the blower housing will blow an the dryer won't run. The fuse is rated at 350F and is tied into the door switch. That is why the wires are smaller. They don't carry the heat load. If the duct fuse blows it is the same as if you opened the door. The dryer simply quits running.

Can 3431 be converted to a regular vented dryer?


You cannot convert this model. This unit blows hot air into drum and the water is turned to steam and exhausted out through the pump to the drain. Unlike regular dryers that blow hot air into drum, creating link and just heat that blow out vent.

Stackable dryer- the dryer is heating up but it is not blowing the moisture out through the vent. It made a really loud squeaking noise before it quit. How do i fix and where is the controls for this?


Can be a couple of possibilities. Most likely your fan belt is broken.
Or perhaps the fan bearing has seized up (noise).
What is the make and model please?

Dryer turns, heats up but won't dry


check the outside of your house to see how strong the blowing is if it's weak then it's in the vent tube

To make sure it is a vent problem ,Do one load without the vent hose attaching to the wall ,keep in mind that it may blow out some dust, you may want to cover the end of vent hose with a nylon stocking for just this ONE time.Now run this 1 cycle on a timed dry cycle at the highest mark...60, 70,etc.If the clothes are dry at the final stopping point than you know your vent is blocked.Or you pinched the vent hose closed.It only takes a small blockage to create alot of waiting time for dryer to end its cycle.The faster the air can get out of the dryer the faster it dries.

First make sure you have power to the unit through the plug. If power is present, then you most likely have an open Thermal Safety Fuse. The Thermal is a Safety feature that shuts off the power to the Heat Element in the event the Blower is not blowing or the Lint Vent becomes clogged not allowing air to flow over the Heat Element. NO air flow, Heat Element over heats, Thermal Safety Fuse opens, power shuts off. If the Thermal Safety Fuse is open find out why. Was the blower not working? Was the Lint Filter clogged? ( Lint Filter should be cleaned after each use to assure continued air flow.) Was Lint Vent Clogged? This is the Vent Hose that goes from the Dryer to the outside of your house. It should be checked for free air movement. The next thing-- Could be a defective Timer or Control Module.
Find where you lost power and WHY!!
