Question about LG Dryers

Open Question

My LG Tromm DLG2524W does not heat.

The heating and cooling lights come on at the same time. It may get hot for a second but then the pilot kicks off and it just tumbles.

SOURCE: LG tromm electric dryer not heating up

Most likely you have a bad electrical connection, resulting in only 120 volts to dryer. (enough to run the 120 volt motor, but not enough to power the 240 volt heating elements) Turn off breaker. Make sure wires on breaker are tight. Make sure nutral wire is tight in breaker box. Take cover off dryer recepticle and check the wires in it to make sure they are all tight. Check that the connections of the cord at the dryer are tight.

Your ignitor (glow bar) got broken during the move. They are more fragile than your grandmother's fine china

SOURCE: I just moved and my LG dryer does not heat up.

i am sending you all the possibilities for your problem, check either of these causes ----and than let me know if it is solved----

Power from the house
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.


Heating element
Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.


Thermal fuse
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)


Wiring
A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

SOURCE: lg dlg2524w runs and tries to heat but doesn't

Our electric did the same thing...techie guy said it was working fine, suggested I clear the dryer lint vent pipe which I tried but it was destroyed so I had to rebuild the whole line which took a day of messing around with the wall behind the unit, the ceiling exit hole and in the attic some. But Man!! it works great now!! All that heat and moist air has to go somewhere away from the machine, or it just goes back into your clothes. Super important. Good luck!

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
