Question about Dryers

1 Answer

My LG Tromm dryer was just working fine. I put in another load and when I went to start it it's making some weird noise I have never heard before, the inside smells like something is burning and it won't spin to dry my clothes. I just had to replace my LG Tromm washer because of issues and can't afford to replace my dryer too!!! I will NEVER buy LG brand again!!!!

SOURCE: LG TROMM DRYER DLE5977 Burning Smell

It is a POS dryer, we have the same one. My suggestion get another dryer. We vacuumed it all out (don't you have a problem with the lint catcher?) Then it started loud pounding noise, which a lot of people seem to have the same problem, then our sensor went out and we had to dry the clothes 5-10 x's...now crack in stainless steel drum and is chewing up all our expensive clothes!

LG Tromm electric dryer model DLE5977B is making an extremely loud humming noise.


Humming is caused when the slow start capacitor on the motor fails. Better to buy a new dryer as the motor is usually around $160. Yours is $145. I suggest you take professional advice on such a high outlay rather than risking the advice of someone who hasn't physically checked the machine. I have two pro dryers in my hotel fail, and they buzzed.

I have an LG Tromm wm1812cw washing machine and besides all the mold and mildew problems it has, it is now making weird sounds when it spins or rotates the load. It is intermittent and doesn't always code...


With a 10 year warranty on their direct drive washer motor, eliminating a clutch or transmission, those enerty star LG's generally preform very well. (one of my customers runs 10 loads a day, 365 days a year in his)
Sounds like the shaft may have seperated from the three spider arms which actually turn the drum. To remove, you may have to grind end of bolt off motor shaft to facilitate dissassembly. It's a rather involved process. Prevent future mold and mildew issues by cleaning out the drain filter and then using a front load washer cleaner on longest, hottest cycle with no clothes (like ahfresh or washer magic, or whirlaway hot tub cleaner, to name a few.) then use not more that one tablespoon of HE detergent and a max of a teaspoon of fabric softener (if you use it) per load, as these machines are using very little water. (when you split the tub to replace the drive spider, use a pressure washer to clean out the inside of the outer drum and the back side of the inner tub) BTW, I have not found any reason to not stick with my LG washer and dryer. My seven year old set worked many a load, and still works great.

Started a load of laundry water filled fine started washing and agitating and then heard a weird noise like something got stuck and went and it sounds like motor is running but will not agitate or spin and...


Please give a make and model of washing machine. I suspect that something has stripped out between the motor and the transmission, which is the noise you heard.

LG Tromm DLE5977W Dryer about 1 1/2 yrs old. Running small load on normal and we heard a funny clunk noise and than the dryer shut off. When i went to look, power was still on with 20 min. left on timer....


3 screws on back of dryer to remove the top. Top slides back about 2 inches and lifts off. Dryer drum should have a thin drive belt around it. Pull on belt. If broken you will know. If loose, then it's off pulleys. Sounds like a broken belt. Check repairclinic.com or appliancepartspros.com for dyi videos on how to replace.
