The repair man should have done a safety check. Call a different one. Clean your filter after each load.

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. ...


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.

Instructions

Dryer Does Not Turn On
1

Ensure that the dryer's power supply cord is firmly plugged into an electrical outlet.
2

Inspect the structure's fuse box for a tripped fuse. Each fuse is assigned a single "On/Off" switch. If any fuse switch is in the "Off" position, flip that switch to the "On" position. If the problem persists, contact a professional electrician.

3

Press the "Start/Stop" button on the left side of the dryer's control panel.
4

Close the dryer door firmly so that the door clicks into place. The dryer will not operate if the door is not shut.
Lint Filter
5

Clean the lint filter. Twist the program selector knob on the control panel to the "Off" position, then open the dryer door. Pull the lint filter out of the dryer. The lint filter is located at the front of the dryer's tumbler, and is inserted vertically into the dryer. Gently stroke your hand over the filter to clear the lint, then reinsert the filter and close the door.
6

Turn the dryer off and allow at least 30 minutes for the dryer to cool, as excessive heat can cause a drying program malfunction.
7

Increase the ventilation of the room the dryer is located in, such as by opening a door or window. Excessive heat will cause the dryer to automatically turn off until it cools as a safety measure. Increasing the ventilation will help keep the dryer cool.
Clothing Not Fully Dry
8

Clean the moisture sensor. Open the dryer door to access the moisture sensor. The black-colored sensor consists of two bars, and is located at the front of the dryer's tumbler, to the left of the lint filter. The sensor should be cleaned with a clean cloth and white vinegar once per month.
9

Clean the lint filter. Twist the program selector knob on the control panel to the "Off" position, then open the dryer door. Pull out the lint filter. The lint filter is located at the front of the dryer's tumbler, and is inserted vertically into the dryer. Gently stroke your hand over the filter to clear the lint, then insert the filter back into the dryer and close the door.
10

Spin the laundry at a higher spin speed in the washing machine before placing the laundry into the dryer to reduce the moisture content.
11

Turn the dryer off and allow at least 30 minutes to pass for the dryer to cool, as excessive heat can cause a drying program malfunction.

Smell


Hello, In most cases when you have a burning smell a simple fix is your lint lines are dirty. A lot of time when your filter or your hose that goes out the back (by the wall) gets dirty it gets hot and starts to burn. There have been some cases where it will catch on fire, so always make sure lint filter and hoses are clean. Other forms of burning smell can be the dryer belt is waring out or loose, Kind of link when a vacuum cleaner belt gets worn and starts slipping and burning rubber smell. AND Finally could be the main barring that could be going out.

My advice start with simplest first, check vents and lint filter and go from there.

I hope this helps Mike.

Hello,

With no lint anywhere around the dryer the thing to check if havent already is the venting itself to see if outside it is blowing and not restricted or blocked

There is a very simple way to get rid of unwanted smells. I would suggest use a cup of white vinegar every wash to clean from stale muck and smells inside the machine.

Dryer smoking up house and threw exhaust vent smells like something burnt


Hello, Well the smell is most likely from lint that is trapped in the dryer burning. The first thing you need to do is check the lint screen just inside the door. Second is to take the vent tube off of the back of the dryer and check to see if it is plugged with lint inside of the dryer. Clean out any you can see, also if the tubing inside of the dryer is most likely plugged with lint and the heating element is catching the lint on fire. If let go without cleaning this will cause a fire! I work for an appliance repair company and have seen dryers catch fire due to them being clogged with lint, you have two options; first is to clean it yourself, second is to have an appliance repair technician come to your home and clean it. The second is easier and safer but the first is cheaper but very labor intensive. I hope that answered your question and helped. Good luck!

Dryer will not get hot. Is there something simple that I can check before calling a repair man?


Hi,

Check the blown fuses and home’s circuit breaker tripped. Dryer use 2 household Fuses or a circuit breakers, Replace the Fuses or reset the circuit breaker.

Select a heat setting other than Air Fluff.

Make sure gas supply is on for gas dryer, Clean the lint filter and exhaust duct.


Good Luck and have a nice day.

Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

Noisy dryer after cleaning lint


There is something caught up in the blower wheel. You will need to disassemble the dryer from the front to be able to get to the blower wheel housing to clear what ever you have jammed there and remove it. Everything is done through the front.

Is there supposed to be a hole on the side of my dryer


Well, though it be simple, you might clean the lint filter everytime you use it. Over time a dryer even with lint filter cleaned will still collect small amounts of lint inside it. You shouldn't worry much but you could call the maytag man to come and take apart the dryer and clean the inside. <;O)
