Hi, open the back panel. You will find a black cutout switch with a red button on it. Press the red button to reset the heating mechanism. Close the back panel and test the machine.

New drive belt on LG dryer to loose?

belt goes around drum the to the right of the tensioner and then to the motor pulley. you have to move the tensioner to the left to get the belt to the motor pulley. so the belt goes to the top of the tensioner, and around it in a clockwise manner, to the motor, not just under the motor and under the tensioner.

The drum of my LG TD-V75120E tumble dryer no longer rotates, plus there is a distinct burning smell coming from the unit. A quote to repair - a new motor - is R2,616. Is this cost worth it?

If your dryer is 10 years old, the answer probably is no. It is possible, however, that the problem could be due to a broken belt.

LG TD C70045E dryer not heating up, this has happened before and the guy just pressed a switch but cant remember where it located, please help!

On the LG TD-C70045E the reset button for the heater is located inside the back air-way cover. This is easy enough to remove and the button is obvious once the cover is off. The button will 'click' satisfyingly if it has tripped. Don't forget to switch off and unlug first...

I had the same problem. Turns out the reset button on the back of the dryer needs to be pushed; when you push the reset button you should hear a click. If you do not hear a click the problem was probably not the reset button. The button shuts down the dryer heating elements if they are getting too hot and also keeps the drum from turning unless the start button is held down.

If you push the reset button and the dryer starts to work again, I strongly recommend that you stop the dryer and investigate why the heater elements overheated. In my case there was lint/hair build up on the heater elements themselves. Extensive dryer disassembly is required to properly clean the heating elements but it is worth the prevention of a house fire. While you're at it, clean the rest of the machine and the duct work.

Hope this helps

Dryer Won't Run

There is a little button on the back of the dryer that needs to be reset. It looks like a little black circle, just push the center and you should feel it click. Once you have the dryer running, go outside your house and check that air is flowing freely from the exit. If it is not, you have a clog in your venting or inside the machine itself, and that has caused it to overheat and trip that protection switch. Also, make sure your lint filter is VERY clean. this sounds dumb, but these askos are very picky about that. Take the screen and scrub it with a soft nylon brush with some soap and water. Also, don't use dryer sheets in these as they tend to clog up that screen with an oily residue. If you must use dryer sheets, at least clean that screen with soap and water on a regular basis. If the vent is not clogged and the screen is clean and the flap on the outside of your house is clear, then the machine needs to be disassembled and cleaned out internally if ti keeps tripping that switch. Hope This Helps!
