Question about LG DLE2512W Electric Dryer

1 Answer

LG dryer DLE2512W power up but won't run when press start button.

My LG dryer model number is LG DLE2512W. It power up alright but when I press the start button, it sounds click-click (like a relay sound) then nothing happen. The timer is ticking down and all the lighting are operating as normal but the motor does not run. I have checked all diagnosis tests as instructed in the service manual and everything seems ok.

Please help if you know the problem is.
Thanks

    Just want to post the solution. After completely disassembled the dryer down to the motor, I did all component tests as instructed from the service manual and all passed. I narrow down to the motor and gave it a straight 110V external source and it did run ok. So, I checked the hardness terminal at the motor to see if it give the motor the power and it does not. I pulled out the terminal wire (brown) and plugged it back making sure that it has good contact and voila... the motor run as normal.

    So the problem is: electrical wire contacts getting loose due to long time motor vibration.

SOURCE: The Drum on my LG DLE2512W Dryer will not turn

no problem with motor or control board. fault is with the motor capacitor only. this is often attached to the motor or near it. the value of the capacitor will be printed on it (usually about 8uf) and you should be able to source from an electrical spares shop

Sounds like the starter winding is out.

Lg 8377 no heat,dryer runs cold.Ran diagnostics,start more dry less dry buttons same time.Saw plc ng.


You may have a high limit switch that has failed. You will need to tear down the dryer to get access to the heating element. Look for the heating element on the bottom right side. There are 2 thermo discs located on the left side of the heating element. Test both of them. If there is no continuity, change that part.
Hope this helps.

My Lg DLE2512W dryer works but the lights dont come on


Unfortunatley this will probably mean a new board. The lights power is fed thru the board and the chances of everyone of those little buggers blowing at the same time is very, very, small. Sorry, hope this can help.

Drying drum is not on its host. Lay down the dryer and then bolt it after aligning it.

Cracked Drum on LG Dryer Model #DLE2512W


If you are still looking for information on this:
No, there has not been any recall.
It is not a real common problem. I only see 1 or 2 a year, which is not many. (LE errors on washers are much more common, for example) The part number of the drum for a DLE2512W dryer is 3045EL1002D and lists for just over $100. You can find a service center to order the part from (in the US) at http://us.lgservice.com/index_b2c.jsp
I would rate the repair at about a 5 or 6 out of 10 on a scale of 1-10 in difficulty. (Basically, remove top, remove front control panel, remove front panel, remove front drum support, remove belt, drum comes out the front, reassemble.)
