I'm pretty sure that the cooling light is always on and blinks when it is cooling. I look at my brother's and he has the EQ bar and it acts the same.

SOURCE: DRYER WILL NOT HEAT UP. "COOLING" LIGHT STAYS ON CONTINUOUSLY.

You dry by sensor???

Clean your sensor. The machine thinks the clothes are dry because the sensor is covered with who knows what???

Check your owner manual for the proper way to clean the sensor.

I hope this works for you

SOURCE: dlg2524w will not heat, cooling light stays on

I have seen this question here at FixYa.com before. I don't know what causes this problem but I surmize that the cooling light is tellling us that the heat is off. DuH!

That was a DuH! for me, not you!

FixYa.com rates me as a LG expert. I am not factory trained not even in the dryer repair business. There may well be other question catchers, volunteers like me, who are trained and know exactly what to do. I'm guessing.

I think you have a problem with your electronic or mechanical timer. I would normally expect a dryer to be in cool down during the last five minutes of any given cycle. I think your timer thinks it is in its last 5 minutes and therefore doesn't bother to turn the heat on. I would particularly follow this line if your timer is electronic. A 1,000,000 things can cause erattic behavior in electronics and yet, they will still check out as innocent little lambs.

I would encourage you to check all settings you are using on your machine, and I would equally encourage you to (gasp!!!) check the trouble shooting section of your LG owners manual.

I would be very interested in finding out what caused this problem. As I mentioned, I have seen this trouble before here at FixYa.com. If you would be so kind as to share your solution with me, I could pass it on to others who are in similar trouble like the person I just answered with the same trouble with three children (a ton of laundry) in the house.

Thanks in advance

Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com

SOURCE: lg tromm dryer electric cooling light staying on

I called LG after seeing this light as well and they say it's supposed to stay on and should "blink" at the end of the cycle. I've never remembered this light staying on in all the years of owning this machine but she (LG rep) said it was normal. Otherwise, if you've checked everything and it's not drying clothes, you may need to have your dryer serviced. :(

Top of GE drier hot


When the dryer gets toward end of cycle, the timer will cycle off the heating element. (last 5 - 7 minutes.) This function takes place thru a resistor located near the timer switch, and parallel with the heating element. If this resistor fails, the heating element stays on during the cool down period. The resistor can be checked with a meter. If it doesn't ohm out at 4500 ohms, replace the resistor... Make sure power is off at the appliance when you check for resistance.

Lg dryer dle7177 cutting off during cycle


I had a tumble dryer that stopped working and after much investigation it turned out to be an internal thermostatic switch and lots of fluff around the internal filters. ( Mine had 2 of them 1 would cut the heat and kick back in when the temperature dropped and the other one would completely cut all power rendering the drier non usable until cicuit breaker thermostat was replaced. The reason they cut out is to prevent overheating and possible fire. When the thermostat gets to certain temperature it breaks the circuit. Apparently you shouldn't stop the drier until it has completely cooled down as there will be too much heat which could cause a fire, which is why most drier cycles have 10 minutes of cool/ non heated air at the end. So in conclusion I would take all the filters out and give them a good clean and try to avoid opening the door while there is still a lot of heat in the drier. I'm not sure if this will help but its a starting point.

Cooling light stays on during dry cycle. no heat is to dry clothes. I've switched the circut breaker numerous times and unplugged the unit many times also to "reset" . What's next..


Try a timed dry cycle instead of an automatic cycle. If that works, then you will need to clean off the moisture detection bars inside the dryer to get the auto cycle to work again. Look for two curved metal bars, about 3/16 inch wide and 4 inches long, about an inch apart, located just inside the front of the dryer, near the right side of the lint filter. (you'll have to stick your head in the dryer drum to see them) Often times, use of dryer sheets will result in a waxy coating forming on these bars, preventing the dryer from detecting the moisture in the clothes. The dryer sees no moisture, it goes into the cool down mode and then stops. Clean the bars off, and you should be back in the laundry business.

Wet clothes after full cycle


Check to see if lint filter is clean.  Also look through the holes inside at the back of the drum to see if there is lint clogging them.  Use a strong shop vac to clean them out if necessary.  The gas flame will normally go on and off during the cycle under the control of the thermostat so that does not sound like the problem unless it fails to come on again when the temperature cools down.  Check to see if air is coming out of the vent outside.  If not, then the blower wheel may be broken.  You will probably have to remove the motor to replace the blower wheel.  I have done it twice on my 34 year old dryer.

Heating element stays on


stat or a clogged vent system. Clean any lint from the internal and external ductwork, and/or replace the cycling thermostat (read about cycling thermostats in "Drying is too slow," above).
Drying is too slow It normally takes about 45 minutes for a dryer to dry a full load. If your dryer is taking more than an hour, check these.

Vent
Heating element
Internal ductwork
Cycling thermostat
Vent 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. 

Heating element Your dryer's heating element may be partially burned out. If it is, your dryer still heats, but at such a low temperature that it takes three or four times as long to dry the clothes. If the element is partially burned out, replace it. 

Internal ductwork 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, contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

Cycling thermostat Although this isn't a common problem, one of the thermostats that controls the temperature in your dryer may break and cause the dryer to heat poorly. If so, you need to replace it. The thermostat is usually a small, round, black device mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate is mounted to the internal ductwork with two screws.

Electric heating elment.


Somewhat,

I have a ref. thermometer, round metal type I got a Wal-Mart that I check the dryer temp at the discharge. I bent the metal bottom so I can lodge it in the discharge pipe, turn the dryer on and watch the temp. Normally on high heat it will go up to 140-150 and cool down to 120-125 then cycle back on.

Dryer not going to cool down cycle, thermal fuse failed 2x


Most problems like this arise from air flow problems. You need to break down the dryer and clean out the lint. Including removal of the filter housing.making sure your outside vent is clear as well.If that fuse keeps blowing you especially need to remove and rinse out that filter housing.

"cooling" display won't turn off causing heating problems.


Try cleaning off the two curved metal bars (about 4 inches long) on the inside near the lint filter. They are what senses the moisture on automatic dry. When you use fabric softener sheets, the stuff from the fabric softener sheets can coat the bars, which makes the dryer think the clothes are already dry, and puts the dryer into cool down. (using time dry will also take the moisture sensor out of the cycle, if you'd like) This should be a Fix-Ya for your problem.

Clothes are taking 3 cycles to dry and cooling light on front wont shut off


The vent is clogged.  To make sure, disconnect the vent from the dryer and run the dryer normally.  If your clothes dry normally, then have a professional vent cleaning company take care of the vent.  
The cooling light will always stay on during the run.  When it is blinking, the heat has stopped and is in the cooling process.
If there is no heating, you have a problem with the high limit switch or something else electrical and needs to be addressed by a qualified LG technician.
