Question about LG DLE2512W Electric Dryer

1 Answer

6 minute problem

Funny how they told you it was from dryer sheets.
I got mine on Saturday, today is Monday. I've done 4 loads. Now how can it build up that quickly on my second load.

Hello.

To be honest with you, I have never believed LG on this one either. It happens on alot of there units and they always tell the customer to take a wet rag and wash off the sensor bars. It works but I personally believe it is from the powder coating left on the drum after it is built. It doesn't happen on every model and I have service a ton of their units after 1 to 2 years of people using dryer sheets and they have never had this problem.
I seriously doubt it is the dryer sheets. They will tell you to use the softner in the washer but that leads to smelling problems in the future. You are in a classic catch 22 my friend.

Brian, look inside your drum for some curved strips of metal that may be 6-8 inches in length. There may be two of them that run parallel to each other about half an inch apart. This is your moisture sensor. If you use dryer sheets like a lot of people do you may have an issue where there is a build up of residue from the dryer sheets on the sensors. Take some rubbing alcohol and some cotton balls or a rag and wipe down the sensor strips. If they come back blue in color there is build up on the strips. Keep wiping down until you no longer get any blue color. That build up can make the dryer think that the clothes are dry and shuts the dryer down. Hope this helps, I have done this on a couple of different dryers and it made a big difference.

Which is better for the dryer and why, dryer sheets or fabric softener in the wash?


Liquid in the washer is better since sheets in the dryer are prone to leaving stains (read back of package about stain warning on every box of softener sheets i have ever seen) also the sheets leave a build up on the thermostats and moisture sensor

While the liquid in the washer softens the clothes and has no build up or staining issues such as the sheets

I have a 6 year old whirlpool dryer (GEW9250PW0) that needs the sensor for the air flow and heat to be replaced approximately every 6-8 months. The repairman (certified) replaced this part last monday and...


Barone1997,

By-passing any devices on a dryer or any other appliance is risky as doing this can void warranties and could create a dangerous condition.

If then dryer is overheating, check the venting for excessive lint build up and clean the vent as well as any hoses or other vent piping. Also check and clean the lint screen frequently.

There is also a limit to the length of the vent line and the number of bends that the vent line should have.

It's possible that the dryer vent may be damaged or kinked, so check that too.

My washer keeps coming up with errors


You have a right mixture of errors,
F11 indicates that the pump is not working.
F05 indicates that the pressure switch is jammed on full.
F04 indicates that the pressure switch is jammed on empty.
I would start by checking the pump is working o/k.
Next locate and clean filter.
This can be found by removing the rear panel of washer.
Locate and remove large black hose onto tub, remove filter and clean, refit same, make sure hose is on properly.
Test for leaks.
If no improvement, then I think your only option is to call an engineer out as it could become quite involved.
Good luck.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

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.

Kenmore HE4 Dryer


rmcfarland I am going to make an assumption. You are using the Automatic cycle. If so then this is wet load detection. Open the dryer door and at the bottom on the front you will see 2 metal bars. This is you moisture sensor. Clean that sensor with a mult purpose cleaner. If detergent and fabric softner sheets build up a coating on this sensor, the control will think you put in a dry load and shut down the dryer. Hope this helps.
