Question about LG DLE7177 Dryer
LG DLE7177 dryer, 2 years old but very little use, just moved and now in use. Worked fine for 2 weeks, was using it yesterday, changed loads, and then no heat. Removed vent hose, plenty of air volume, but cold. All controls work, it runs, it even beeps to tell me load is done, but no heat and clothes are still wet. Is there a fuse on the heater element? Something I can check???
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.
Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.
