Question about LG Dryers

2 Answers

I very recently-9/28/13- purchased an LG clothes dryer-model #DLE487OW. A breaker was kicked and since the electrity was restored, I am getting a check filter message with cool air only blowing in dryer. Lint filter is clean and tried various settings but no go. Is there a reset button on the dryer or do I need a service man? Nancy

I have this dryer and I may know the problem. The thermal fuse. There is likely a lint clog in the ductwork which will cause the thermal fuse to go out.

Call LG people before you call the service man.
Really, you have no heat. Check out the heating circuit...heater, t/stats; vent. etc. Something is sensing that the filter is blocked when it is not....check air flow.
I doubt the board is a problem at this point.

Your belt is likely broken. I am presuming you DO NOT have a setting on your machine that allows the drum to not turn or if yours does have such a setting you have not selected it!!!

I am not intimately familiar with your particular LG model even though FixYa.com rates me a LG expert.

Dryer tops are generally held in place with spring clips. Pop the top being careful to not mar the finish. Look for the belt (about 3/8 inch or so wide). The belt will be near the middle of the drum. Try to pick it up. If it is broken, you will be able to remove it. If it has slack in it but you can't remove it, it is probably off the motor pulley. Put it around the pulley through the belt tensioner.

Remove the front - use care you don't damage any wires.

The drum will fall free at this point. Take pictures with your cell phone to aid in reassembly.

You can get replacement belts from a FixYa.com advertiser, your local appliance parts place or visit www.repairclinic.com

Dryer turns on but does not get hot or even warm for that matter


Many times one pole of a double pole breaker may trip allowing the dryer to operate but with no heat. Go to the electric panel and reset the circuit breaker for the dryer. Also check to insure there is air flow at the vent a clogged vent willl prevent clothes from drying

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.

Fridgeidaire clothes dryer


I will try this again i don't think i posted it properly.
On the power cord where it connectes to the dryer make sure the red and black wire goes to the outside screws (L1& L2) the white goes in the middle and the green goes to the dryer cabinet.
If you have the red or black going to the middle one it will trip the breaker.

Maytag compact dryer low heat doesnot dry. works for hrs clothes still damp.


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.

Dryer will not heat


Hi jillsimons,
If you have had two new dryers not heating it really sounds like it may not be a dryer problem but a home problem. I would first make sure you have the correct amount of voltage to the machine. It will require 220-240 volts to operate correctly. If one leg you your breaker is kicked or you have a blown fuse in your breaker box then your dryer will only be getting half the voltage it requres to operate. It will run but it will not heat. Secondly if you do infact have the correct voltage then this could be the only other possibilty.
The dryer vent would either be to long or blocked off. This will cause the dryer to blow its thermostats and the dryer would then stop heating until the thermostats are replaced.
I am sure one of these will solve your problem. So check your breaker box, kick them off and back on then see if you get heat. Then check your vents. If they are blocked clean them out and get you some thermostats. Or call for service, since the appliance is new they will not charge you for a service call. Atleat I would'nt. Have a great day and good luck to you, I really hope this was helpful to you. MCA0824@aol.com
