SOURCE: LG DLG2524W DRYER WORKS FINE EXCEPT DOESN'T HEAT UP

1. Open dryer door and remove the phillips head screws at the 5 and 7 O'Clock positions. 2. Remove three screws at very back, allowing top cover to be moved back about an inch and lifted off. 3. remove screw at top left and top right from front top panel. 4. pull plastic front panel along top edge to release front top panel. (watch for sharp edges) 5. Swing top up and over onto top of dryer. 6. Unplug light and door switch. 7. remove four screws at top of large lower panel. 8. lift panel up a bit and off. 9. unplug sensor plug at bottom allowing panel with door to be set aside. 10. gas dryer has dime sized high limit thermostat on left front side of burner chamber. Has two wires on it, with a small pin in the center. Push the pin in. Reassemble and clean out vent, eliminating flexible venting, replacing with rigid aluminum piping and elbows. Outside vent should have a four inch vent flap opening, not just a two inch if it is that style.

SOURCE: I have an lg dryer model DLG5966W and the check

Check your vent. Inspect the dryer venting from the rear of the dryer to the outside vent hood of the home.
If there's a restriction in the vent--the clothing in the dryer takes longer to dry.
When an LG dryer is functioning normally---the time required to dry laundry is determined by the *Sensor* located on the drum side of the lint filter housing and by the main control board.
When laundry is near dry--any Time Remaining on the control panel that is *not* needed will be eliminated---except for the last 6 minutes.
The final 6 minutes of any LG automatic cycle is for cooling down the laundry before the dryer ends the cycle.
If a dryer *counts down* to the last 6 minutes but the laundry is still not dry--the computer will allow the dryer to run until the laundry has dried or defaults (not drying within the additional time allowed).
Dryer vents that are longer than 8 feet with more than (2) 90 degree turns--can affect drying performance.
Setting the DRY LEVEL selector to *Very Dry* will solve most dryability issues. In homes with abnormally long vents--even the longer run time in the *Very Dry* setting is usually not sufficient to dry laundry loads.
Reducing the length of the vent or starting a second cycle becomes necessary to fully dry the clothing.
If a second cycle was started---only the amount of time that is needed to dry laundry will be used before dropping to 6 minutes and then the cycle will end with dry laundry. Bonus:
LG DRYER

Problem:
The dryer has an auto dry feature which never fully dries the clothes so we wind up manually setting the dry time to an hour.
Solution:
LG gas dryers are VERY temperamental in long vent set-ups. If fabric softener sheets are used in the dryer--clean the two stainless steel strips of metal on the lint filter housing with a SCOTCHBRITE PAD--scrub back & forth several times to remove the waxy residue from the fabric softener sheets. Most,if not all manufacturers do *not* recommend using sheets in dryers that have a moisture sensor (electrodes).
However--using a SCOTCHBRITE pad keeps the wax off those sensors which can be seen if looking *into* the dryer drum and at the lint filter housing.
If only *liquid* fabric softener is used in the washer--clean the dryer sensors once a month. Liquid softener also contains wax which can slowly accumulate on the dryer sensors from the laundry washed in the washer.

Check the exhaust vent when running and be sure there is a good flow of air. You may have to clean the exhaust pipes all the way through. Dryers require a good flow of air for proper operation.

DRYER GENERAL ELECTRIC SUPER CAPACITY. APPARENTLY IT IS WORKING BECAUSE IT HEAT BUT THE CLOTHES ARE WET


Hello,

A leading cause of poor drying results in that type of dryer is lint build up in the blower/lint filter housing. That build up will restrict air flow through the dryer causing very long dry times. To repair that the front panel would need to be removed and clean all the lint build up from that housing and blower wheel area.

To remove the front panel DISCONNECT POWER TO THE DRYER, on the bottom of the dryer inside of the door rim will be 2 phillips headed screws,remove those and lift off the top. At the top corners where the front panel connects to the cabinet will be 2 more phillips headed screws remove those and the front panel will pull off and out of the way. With the front panel off the blower housing will be in the lower left side clean lint from it and also the sure to clean all the lint from the lint filter housing which will be attached to the back side of the front panel. In addation to cleaning that area be sure to check and clean the exhaust duct tube as well.

I have a lg tromm dle2514 dryer and the check filter light is on. I am willing to clean it (I've already cleaned the front filter area) I just have no idea where there is another filter


Hi,
There is no other filter to clean other then the one lint filter.
I would check the dryer vent to make sure it's not restricted with lint build up or has any kinks in it. Also check the outside flapper at the end of the dryer vent to make sure it's clear of lint and able to open all the way.
If your dryer vent is ok and the lint screen is clean then I would remove the front of the dryer and check the blower/fan housing for lint build up.

How do I remove odors from this dryer?


Probably build up of dust and lint inside cabinet. You need to unplug dryer, remove back panel and vacuum out lint. If excessive lint found, would indicate insufficient cleaning of lint filter or restricted outflow vent or hose. If odour is electrical smell or burning plastic check all electrical connections and insulators for signs of browning or overheating. Strong pungent smell could be motor winding overloading or burning out. Will need electrician.

How do I remove the front panel? I need to vacuum out the lint build up inside the dryer. Also, something has fallen down in the dryer and the drum is hitting it when it rotates.


Hi, to clean all of the lint build up, you have to get behind it and remove the back panel to expose all electrical, motor, and lint. As far as something getting into the drum, it would have to get inside from inside the unit only, as the drum is solid on the side you can't see. You have air holes for the heat to come in and a button may have went into the drum and has no way out. At the back of the dryer where the vent connects to the drum, well it is a chute that the heat is blown into, you may be able to pull this back and get in side at the bottom of the drum to see if you can feel around, but unless there is a panel built into the drum on this model, it will have to get lucky and fall out inside the drum again. I would look the drum over good when you are back there cleaning and rotate the drum by hand to see what might be there to excess that part of the drum. Please keep me posted and let me know if you need more help as I would be happy to help you.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7
PS, Please be careful as it is very high voltage, so make sure the breaker is off and the unit is unplugged. Thanks.

Drain hose


This hose can be removed from the rear by removing the access panel. Look to the left and you will see the drain coming down from the condensate duct. Follow it down to the drain assy. While you have it off, check in the opening for lint build up which can block the drain

LG FRont Load Washer Dryer WD-1256RD filling up with lint


If you have not done it already, replace the lint filter. Follow instructions on manual. The lint filter access should be on front side of machine.

Other users had same problem on this model, I quote:
"I've only had it 2 weeks so far. It seems to be collecting lint/fluff all around the rubber door lining"
Source here.

Sometimes there may be too much lint if you use excessive softener and detergent.

Remove lint holder on ge front loader dryer


I have the exact same problem. I am amazed at had been the engineering is for such a simple process. The user guide just says to clean the lint filter. Even when doing so, there is still an excessive build up of lint beyond reach. There are no instructions that mention how to clean this part. It is obvious that GE did not test this part of the machine.
