Question about LG DLG5932W Gas Dryer

1 Answer

LG Trohm dryer will not power up. No lights, nothing.

We replaced the circuit breaker, but that didn't help. It worked fine until I tried to dry a heavy rug. Is there some sort of reset button on the dryer?

Hello Edward, Is it possible that the electrical circuit breaker is tripped in your breaker box? Try shutting the breaker off and turn it back on.

alright, make sure that the door switch/sensor isn't broken and that it is closing all of the way. Try turning the dial on the dryer around a few times and seeing that it clicks and try it in a different cycle and see if it starts.

let me know if this still doesn't work and we can try a few other things. If it is new and you find something that is damaged then it can probably be taken back and swapped. Also, your warranty might also cover a house visit to check it out if it still won't work after doing the above which I would look into by giving the place a call.

Please let me know what you do and check and whether it helps or not and I will give you a few other things you can do, thanks

Hello Steve,

I am a bit confused because the model you selected is for a electric dryer which should have a dedicated outlet/breaker only for the dryer
I am going to assume it's a gas dryer and the trouble is with the outlet,to verify this plug a know working object into the outlet and see if it works
Even if the part in the dryer part that cuts the circuit to the motor if it's bad(thermal fuse) has no bearing on the drum light and that should work if power to dryer

My dryer will only work for like 3 minutes and then it kicks out the breaker. It is an lg tromm dle3777w. It has worked fine for about 4 years. Used it for a load already today and it worked fine. ...


Hi - there is a fault with the heating circuit, most likely either a bad connection on the elements or elsewhere on the wiring. The only other problem would be the actual heater element, although doubtful as it would normally pop the circuit breaker instantly if this was the case.

Although i'm not familiar with this particular model all dryers operate the same way, when on air dry there is usually no heating involved, it will work ok.

If you can handle the repairs yourself otherwise get an electrician or appliance serviceman to help you out.

2year old ge dryer trips breaker when it's turned on, but sometimes will run a complete cycle before it shuts off.


HELLO THERE
Electric dryers require the use of a 220 volt line. The dryer heating elements run off of 220 volts. An excessive draw of electricity, or a short in the wiring can blow a fuse or trip a breaker. This happens to protect sensitive components from damage, and to help prevent fires. Every other dryer component operates off of 110 volts, the timer, motor, etc. Usually when a fuse blows or a circuit trips, it's because there's to much draw on the power line.
It is very possible for one part of your dryer to work fine, and yet another to have a problem, such as a short circuit. A short circuit may be caused by the heating element, internal wiring, or the main power cord.
To troubleshoot this problem, unplug the dryer and check to see if the circuit breaker or fuse remains on when the dryer is unplugged. If they stay on, it's more than likely the problem is somewhere in the dryer.
If your fuse blows, or the circuit breaker trips when the dryer is unplugged, it's likely the problem is with the circuit breaker, fuse box, or house wiring; contact a professional electrician.

OK I hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

Maytag 3000 Series front load gas dryer (Whirlpool) - No lights, no digital display, not able to turn on or start. Yes, unit is plugged in to AC outlet. Yes, AC voltage is good at 120V. Yes, circuit...


OK everyone, my ears are red. Over the weekend, I gave this another shot, since my warranty repair appointment isn't until next week.

I opened the dryer door (the drum light is off, indicating no power at all) and went to the circuit breaker box, and flipped the washer/dryer breaker back to off and then re-set the breaker again.

When I got to the laundry room - the drum light was on!

So I powered up the unit, and ran the machine. It ran for about one minute, and then went off. So I went back and re-set the breaker again.

Visually, the breakers did NOT LOOK tripped - but flipping the thing off and then on to re-set the breaker worked.

This time, the dryer is working fine. The bad part is: I need to replace the breaker for the second time. So this is NOT a defective dryer, it is a bad electrical supply. I will call the electrician back to make him fix this right. . . . .

Thanks again for all who responded. This is a new unit, purchased on 7/7/2009.

No heat will come from the dryer


Check the dryer breaker pair in the house electrical box. Push off, then on. If the breakers trip immediately, then you have a direct short circuit in the dryer, usually the heating element which involves removing the drum to get at the element(s). If the breakers hold, then try the dryer. If you get heat--ok. If drum turns, but no heat--check with a voltmeter across the two slanted slots in the power socket. You should read ~220 volts AC. If near zero, then one of the breakers is probably bad. Get an electrician to replace the breaker pair.

Whirlpool Imperial Electric Dryer wont heat up


Check the following to address this issue.




1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

I just moved and my LG dryer does not heat up.


i am sending you all the possibilities for your problem, check either of these causes ----and than let me know if it is solved----

Power from the house
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.


Heating element
Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.


Thermal fuse
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)


Wiring
A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.
