When was the last time you cleaned out the dryer?most likely the air isn't moving out of the dryer good enough and when this happens usually one of the thermostats will pop as a safety so there isn't a fire or anything like that. open the door,find the door switch,push it in and out,it should make a click sound as you push it in,if it doesn't spring in and out most likely this is your problem,push it in and hit start,if the switch feels good and doesn't start you'll need a meter,first thing check where the cord connects to the dryer and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer.if you do unplug it.now you have to remove the top panel,and then the front panel to get at the thermostats,there are a couple on the left side of the heater box and a couple on the blower wheel housing,most likely it will be the back t-stat on the heater box,this is the high limit,if that's good read out all of them.just check for continouity with the meter.

LG DLEX2501V shows np error code after running only a few seconds. I have had this dryer for 3 years and it has worked great to this point.


NP should be a No Power code. Check if any wire is burnt past the plug (dryer side). Sometimes the wire burns out at the element. Don't poke around inside with the power on.

LG Dryer takes too long to dry clothes


Sure the outside vent is not clogged up? If so it will overheat and turn it self off and do a poor job of drying the clothes.

Also check and make sure that all of the heating elements are working properly.

I have an LG DLE0442W and its having some problems. Well first to turn it on you have to hold down the power button or the lights will just flicker and it went turn on. When you hold it down it turns on no...


I suspect two issues
1. Need new power button. Easy fix. Check out repairclinic.com or appliancepartspros.com for how to videos and parts.
2. Your sensor strips in dry my have either lint under them or dryer sheet residue on them throwing off the moisture sensor reading and shutting down dryer early.

No it's not normal for them to squeek. If its only 1 month old, you should call 800-243-0000 and lg will set you up with a warranty call.

I have an lg dryer model DLG5966W and the check filter light is on. It takes two cycles to completly dry my clothes. I cleaned the lint filter and still doesnt dry on one cycle. I then removed the filter...


Check your vent. Inspect the dryer venting from the rear of the dryer to the outside vent hood of the home.
If there's a restriction in the vent--the clothing in the dryer takes longer to dry.
When an LG dryer is functioning normally---the time required to dry laundry is determined by the *Sensor* located on the drum side of the lint filter housing and by the main control board.
When laundry is near dry--any Time Remaining on the control panel that is *not* needed will be eliminated---except for the last 6 minutes.
The final 6 minutes of any LG automatic cycle is for cooling down the laundry before the dryer ends the cycle.
If a dryer *counts down* to the last 6 minutes but the laundry is still not dry--the computer will allow the dryer to run until the laundry has dried or defaults (not drying within the additional time allowed).
Dryer vents that are longer than 8 feet with more than (2) 90 degree turns--can affect drying performance.
Setting the DRY LEVEL selector to *Very Dry* will solve most dryability issues. In homes with abnormally long vents--even the longer run time in the *Very Dry* setting is usually not sufficient to dry laundry loads.
Reducing the length of the vent or starting a second cycle becomes necessary to fully dry the clothing.
If a second cycle was started---only the amount of time that is needed to dry laundry will be used before dropping to 6 minutes and then the cycle will end with dry laundry. Bonus:
LG DRYER

Problem:
The dryer has an auto dry feature which never fully dries the clothes so we wind up manually setting the dry time to an hour.
Solution:
LG gas dryers are VERY temperamental in long vent set-ups. If fabric softener sheets are used in the dryer--clean the two stainless steel strips of metal on the lint filter housing with a SCOTCHBRITE PAD--scrub back & forth several times to remove the waxy residue from the fabric softener sheets. Most,if not all manufacturers do *not* recommend using sheets in dryers that have a moisture sensor (electrodes).
However--using a SCOTCHBRITE pad keeps the wax off those sensors which can be seen if looking *into* the dryer drum and at the lint filter housing.
If only *liquid* fabric softener is used in the washer--clean the dryer sensors once a month. Liquid softener also contains wax which can slowly accumulate on the dryer sensors from the laundry washed in the washer.

Drying timer on auto dry


I called LG...they said to unplug the dryer for 5 min. to reset the timer ...this solved the problem.
They also said not to use dryer sheets during the sensor dry cycle as the coating on the dryer sheets causes the sensor to malfunction as it can't read the humidity level in the dryer.
