Question about Dryers

1 Answer

No heat STARTED OFF BY TAKING VERY LONG TO DRY CLOTHES. AFTER DRYING TWO LOADS OF CLOTHES. I NOTICED THAT THE CLOTHES WERE STILL DAMP AFTER TWO CYCLES AND DID NOT FEEL ANY HEAT SO I REMOVED THE VENT HOSE TO SEE IF ANY HOT AIR WAS BLOWING BUT NO SUCH LUCK ONLY COLD.

Depending on the dryer there's either no flame or a blown heat element.

An appliance service person can fix this very easily.

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.

How do you dry on this machine? if you dry on the green, does it completely dry?


The automatic preheat and drying cycle kicks in as the final wash spin is under- way. The system employs a condenser dryer in which the hot air used to dry the clothes is channeled into a drum, instead of being released into the great outdoors via a dry vent hose. Cold water is drawn into the drum at the same time. The two mix, and the result is a condensing process.

The chlothes should be dry. there may be a damp feeling to them but otherwise dry. If your machine is not drying then the element could be going bad, or a thermal cutoff. those would be the easyiest fixes.

The BIG drawback is drying. It takes about 90 minutes to dry a load, and the clothes come out very wrinkled. Because the drum is so small, the clothes don't 'toss' in heated air and don't fluff at all. Clothes also come out stiffer than a regular dryer.
