Question about LG DLE2532W Electric Dryer

1 Answer

LG DLG 2524W gas dryer

Brand new, out of the box, my LG dryer is very slow to dry in sensor mode. Drying lamp flashes constantly, and the cooling lamp is constantly lit. Other than a possible clogged vent, this seems to be a common problem out there. Anything I can do before I take it back? Thanks

Call svc tech under warrenty, also sensor rellies on clothes touching two shiny strips to sense the dryness of the clothes ussaly in front or rear of drier drum or rather back or front wall inside wet clothes short the bars and stalls timer when they are dry does not short bars so sensor knows dryness by resistance of short tilt drier front or back where ever bars are to make shure clothes main tain contact lots of time this cures the promblem

My dryer Lg Tromm model number DLG5988 is blowing cold air, changed sensor bars still not drying- also the check filter light stays on and it's in cool mode and dry keeps blinking, what could it be?

sensor bars just measure humidity so dryer knows when close are dry, so will have no effect on heating. the check filter light is just a reminder, not connecter to any sensor or anything. could be several issues: gas valve solenoids, thermal fuses, etc. but for a quick try that might work, try just unplugging the dryer, push and hold the on button for about 20 seconds and then plug back in and see if the dryer is reset. works sometimes. good luck

The dryer is new and its not drying at all. also ths cooling system light is on?

Usually the reason is the exhaust vent in the wall leading to the outside of the house is heavily restricted with lint or other debris. Pull the exhaust vent out of the wall and run the dryer to see if the load dries normally. If it does, you will need someone to clear out the exhaust vent to resolve the drying issue.
The cooling light is a display that tells you what will be happening during the cycle. When it flashes, the dryer is in the cooling mode and is continuing its operation but with no heat. That usually lasts about 10 to 15 minutes.
Good lucj

Not enough heat

You may need to adjust the air flow on your dryer vent.
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.

LG gas dryers are more sensitive to venting length and air flow resistance. The gas burner can cause a rapid increase in temperature compared to an electric burner.
Rapid temperature rise in a gas dryer leads to premature burner shutdown (longer time required to dry laundry).
The gradual temperature increase of an electric element is more "forgiving" in homes where the dryer venting is less than ideal.

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
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.

The cooling light is always on, and it takes about 90 minutes to dry a load.

In normal operation as the dryer is drying the "drying" light flashes and the "cooling" light is on steady until the 5 minute cooldown at which time the "drying" light stays on steady and the "cooling" light flashes. click on this lg link

Drying timer on auto dry

I called LG...they said to unplug the dryer for 5 min. to reset the timer ...this solved the problem.
They also said not to use dryer sheets during the sensor dry cycle as the coating on the dryer sheets causes the sensor to malfunction as it can't read the humidity level in the dryer.
