If you need a new drum. Follow the instructions below.

Ordered drum from Sears parts. 3045EL1002D
Cost of 85$ + 15 to ship. It came in 5 days.

Here is how to do it on a DLE2514W. Takes about an hour. I only used a phillips screw

driver. Take your time and look over the situation. I hope that I rememberd

everything. Good luck.

Thanks for the writeup! Did you notice the new drum was a bit harder to turn than the old one? By hand it was pretty tough, but seems to run okay.

Your find that this inner drum needs replacing! It could be done under the warranty if its under a year old or the product has been recalled for this problem before. If not then you will be buy a new inner drum yourself.

LG DLE2514W Power does not stay on. Power cuts


If you move the cord @ the outlet and the dryer shuts off replace outlet if the prongs on the cord are not damaged.

If you wiggle at the dryer side and it shuts off un plug the dryer remove acess cover and inspect end of cord. Ck. and make sure terminal nuts are tight. and not burnt due to a loose connection.

Drum will not turn on dle2514w lg dryer, tried unpluging it, do i have to replace a belt?


It's either the belt, or the motor has failed. Do you hear the motor running when you turn the unit on? If so, then it's probably the belt. If not, then it may be the motor.

My DLE2514W LG dryer keeps running with 6 Min. Left


There is a humidity sensor (Hence the words Sensor Dry) inside the machine which trips out when it sees a lack of moisture in the air going past it.

It is not adjustable without special equipment

That sensor has failed and will need replaceing
