Question about LG DLE2512W Electric Dryer

2 Answers

Filter? My wife was using the dryer and asked me to look at it because it wasn't working. When I turned on the power the following occured: -The lights around the main selector just blinked as well as the Filter light. -When I close the door and push the start button, the dryer starts for just a split second, then stops. None of the other buttons respond when they are pushed. This happened before and I can't remember what I did to remedy the problem; however, I just unplugged the dryer for 5 minutes. This solution always seems to work with computers. I am back and now the dryer seems to be working again. Although it is working right now, if anyone knows what would cause this and how to fix it please let me know.

    I had the same problem where the "Check Filter" light remained on and the dryer would not operate. The filter was clean so I tried using a vacuum cleaner in the filter area as well the vent exhaust. Dryer seems to be working now.

    pike33 hit the nail on the head. I clean the filter after every use so the filter was clean prior to this use. When I removed the filter and looked down where it sits, I did notice some excess "stuff" down where the filter sits. I have not attempted to use the vacume to remove the "stuff", but that might be an option.

The 'check filter' is just a reminder. It is on when you turn the unit on, and at the end of the cycle.
The blinking lights, every 1/2 second is not, it is an error code. It is telling you that there is a problem with the door switch (light switch). It could be a loose wire or maybe the door is not shutting properly. Unplug the unit, take off the lid and check the connection. Replace if necessary.

Possible problem with the internal programming of the control board.  if this issue continues, you may need to replace the control board.

Good Morning Friend,

I understand that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire dryer, model# LEQ1442ES0, shutting itself off after about a minute. I see that the lights to the far right flash 6 times and then the start and cancel button flash 2 times. This also, only seems to occur when the weather is warm and humid. I suggest putting a dehumidifier near your dryer during the warmer months to see if this helps to draw the humidity away from the dryer. The humidity can cause your appliance to not run as it should. The other suggestion I have, would be to reset your dryer. You will do this by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker for 3-5 minutes. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your refrigerator status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Do not think yet of purchasing new dryer nor calling a service person as this may be a simple problem and you can fix it yourself. You may only need to replace some components as this type of problem is usually caused by a blown thermal fuse which is wired in series with the motor. When it blows, power to the motor is terminated causing the motor not to run. No dryer function works then when the motor cannot run.

The thermal fuse is located on the blower housing along with the cycling thermostat. Disconnect power then access and bypass the thermal fuse. The blower housing is located on the front left bottom of the dryer cabinet for the dryers with lint filter on the front or at the rear left bottom if the lint filter is located on the top of the cabinet.

Bypass the thermal fuse by disconnecting the wires and connecting them together. Insulate the connection properly and plug the dryer back in. The thermal fuse is indeed blown and needs to be replaced including the cycling thermostat if the dryer starts. NEVER use the dryer with the thermal fuse bypassed due to fire hazards. The thermal fuse and the cycling thermostat costs about $35.

Let us know if the problem is not addressed above or if you need further advice but indicate the exact model number of the machine for further advice.

Drum not rotating


If you clean your lint filter after each load faithfully, try removing the dryer vent hose that goes to the outside and inspect it for lint accumulation, water build up, or some other foreign material, as this will restrict air flow and cause your described symptoms. If your are unable to inspect your vent, disconnect it from the back of the dryer and start your dryer to see if it works that way.
