Dryer model DLE5955W is not heating. When drying the "drying" light flashes and the "cooling" light is on steady. I turned off, turned breaker off and back on. No improvement. Checked lint filter, all...


You have one of 2 problems. There is a power problem at the power cord or the high limit switch has tripped. You will need a qualified LG technician to diagnose your situation.
Good luck

Kenmore elite 62042 says it is done, but, always requires some more time and seems to be progressing towards longer drying times. the clothes are warm but still damp. started 6-12 mos. ago, 5-10 min extra...


Here are a few more things to look at:

Sometimes blower wheels will get loose in dryers. Sometimes they will get a whole lump of lint in them or you can hear a rattling noise in the dryer, this is the blower wheel, its worn out and it can cause the fuse to blow too,or it can half *** work and take fifty forever's to dry the clothes.Or it could be just that the dryer needs a good blowing out .I use a lawn blower to get all the lint out of the dryer as well as the vent pipe and vent to outside. I take the filter HOUSING out and wash it also. That is, I remove the housing and clean is good! Making sure that the dryer is properly flowing air is a good thing!

Dle2532 lg dryer, cooling light is always on


I'll take a stab that you use dryer softener sheets. These will deposit a coating on the two metal sensor bars (about 4 inches long, very near the lint filter inside the drum) which prevents the sensor from "seeing" that the clothes are still wet, so the dryer jumps to the cool down portion of the cycle. Clean the metal bars off and it should work again. (note: the bars are not in the cycle if you choose time dry instead of using the automatic cycles)

DRYER NOT PUTTING OUT HEAT


If you can find the wiring diagram inside the rear service panel of the appliance, follow the circuit to identify the overload sensors. There are several internal temperature sensors in the heater circuit that could be open.

Also check that the vent duct, all the way out to the discharge grill outside of the house, is not partially restricting the airflow. Note the same for the lint filter on top as well. Any restriction to airflow will cause poor or no heating problems.

Check for a good discharge of air with everything hooked up, outside where the dryer vent discharges, while the dryer is operating.

Plase feel free to reply your findings, and if you have any additional questions.

Lint filter sensor cuts off machine within 5-10 minutes.


It sounds like you might think you are sending this to Siemans? You aren't, Fixya is a self help website, people just like you helping others. Some of us are Experts on various subjects, like dryers.

Dryers need airflow and this lint filter just works out that either the temperature is getting too hot, or there is not enough airflow.

Trouble spots are usually the following;

Exhaust hoses too long.
Sharp bends on hoses.
Birds nests in hoses. Happened to me twice!
Wet lint build up as the hot wet air hits the first bend.
Plastic concertina hoses are really bad for air flow. Use the aluminium ones that are almost smooth.

Or my guess in your case, is vent flaps that are not opening fully or blocked. The whole external assembly with flaps and tube should be changed about every 5 years

Dryer overheat and stoppping too soon


Yes, dryer sheets can cause a build up on the sensors and the lint filter. Clean the metal contact strips off (just inside the door) with alcohol or windex and use a toothbrush and a little soap to scrub the lint filter. With the build up you don't get proper airflow and it won't dry right. Also, stop using dryer sheets or be sure and clean the cotacts and filter about once a month.

Check the vent and make sure it is not plugged with lint. Make sure the vent hose is clear. The light is telling you something blocking the airflow. You might not be able to see it easily.
