LG Tromm DLE 7177 WM not drying clothes. vent is clear and unobstructed, the heating element upper right is hot to the touch, and it seems there is a reasonable amount of air venting to the outside.


There is a upper limit and lower limit thermostat I believe, YouTube repair clinic channel has all the test info and parts.

When I set the dryer to Heavy Duty and Very Dry setting which equates to 1:10 mins, my clothes are still very damp. This seems wrong. Thoughts?


Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance.
Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum.

My dryer DLE 2514W does not dry the clothes enought, we have to put it on for a second time to get them all dry. Seems to be alot of heat but doesnt dry the clothes


disconnect vent hose and run a load of clothes, if they are dry then the vent hose is restricted/clogged. if for some reason it is doing the same then take dryer apart and clean from lint screen back, I am almost certain that it is the vent tube.

I have LG dryer model DLE 7177 RM my dryer has power indicated by the drum light but nothing else has power except the drum light, what might cause this


Unplug it and wait a minute, then plug back in. This is my first line of defense, then all I know, is I won't buy another LG for my home. No one wants to work on them or they don't know how. I own 4 LGs in my home, 2 have had issues....grrrr.

My dryer is not producing heat. Just cool air!


Check the following to address this issue.




1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Kenmore Dryer Model 110.73952102


Yes, It is usually on the heating element tube. Don't just replace the fuse. You must find out what caused it to blow. You probablly have restricted air flow . Usually this is a clogged duct pipe or outside vent. This can also be caused by trying to operate the dryer with the door open. Before replacing the fuse, take the duct off the back of the dryer. Clean out what lint you can , turn on the dryer and see if you get good air flow. Next check the vent pipe for clogging and check the outside damper. DO NOT USE FLEXIBLE PLACTIC DUCT PIPE. It is a fire hazard and almost always clogs up fast. Another possible solution is that if it's an electric dryer, If the element burns out it can short out against the frame and cause it to overheat.

Fridgidaire FGRB5700DS0 Only Certain Modes Produce Heat


The control thermostat has failed. It's mounted to the plastic air duct that your lint trap slides into. You'll have to unplug the unit and remove the front panel to get to it. The part number is #131298400 and is available at a local appliance parts retailer. Cost is about $32.00.
