Question about LG Dryers
I have a DLE2516W front load dryer that goes on & off. The power cord is fine, it seems like the problem is coming from the Power button because the dryer won't turn on or turn off immeidately when I press it. Small thing I should tackle myself (with your help please!) or should I call someone?
It could cause by the door switch not closing firmly, check the door first, make sure it close firmly. If it does not a problem, you would think about a serviceman needed.

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

There is a wiring diagram on the access panel on the back, or in the control head.
Follow the path from incoming power through all switches and leading to the timer.
I suspect either the door switch or start switch has failed.

SOURCE: Dryer has no power
Have you manually reset your breaker? Sometimes breakers can seem fine but they actually aren't. Physically turn the breaker off and then back on. If this doesn't work, you will need to find out if your particular brand and model has a fuse that needs to be replaced.

ck recalls on this issue.
there may be one.
do not buy samsung they are notorious for having problems.
sounds like the heating element and relay may have went out.
however if it does not start up at all it could be the motor itself.
