Question about LG DLE2240W Dryer
LG dle2240w has been running for a while, then just stopped. Checked thermal fuse nears back panel, but it's fine, power at the machine (panel where plug wires connect to machine) show 'white-red' shows 120v, and 'black-red' shows 120v. I checked for solid connection to the front panel, so connection should be fine there. I'm out of ideas. Any help? Thanks!

Dryer NO Power
You really need a volt / ohm meter to check for Continuity & Volts
Its well worth the investment... $15.00 bucks give or take a few
I would check to see if you have 220v to back of dryer where the cord mounts to dryer,
If dryer is getting only 1 leg 110 volts instead of the 220 will it not heat.
Check themostates & heater for Continuity... Most models, Now have a..
Hi-limit fuse that need to be checked for Continuity and replaced if bad
if you dont have a ohm meter you can hook the wires together
with a small piece of wire and by pass the themostates and hi limit fuse to see if thats the problem or not

If your dryer doesn't heat, check these:
Power from the house
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.

Some of the LG LDS5811 had problems with the wiring harness in the door panel. This is nothing to mess with unless you have disconnected the DW from power.
You can open the door panel by removing the screws around the inside edge of the DW. Or, better yet, firmly but politely contact LG service and tell them you are aware of LDS5811 dishwashers having these symptoms being caused by _melting_ wires in inside the door panel. This is true and even if the DW is out of warranty, LG should fix this problem at no cost to you.

The back panel does not come off. If you have a rear control model as pictured in your post: Open the door and remove the two phillips head screws at the 5 and 7 O'Clock position just in front of the lint tilter. Next, use a putty knife to push in on the clips holding the top panel down. They are located in the seam where the front panel meets the top panel, near the left and right edges. Swing the top panel up to gain acess to the two phillip head screws holding the front panel on at the very top of the front panel. Disconect the the door switch, drum light, and then the sensor plug near the lint filter. This allows you to fully remove the front panel. The thermal reset is located on the left side of the burner housing, near the front. It is about the size of a dime, with two wires to it, and a quarter inch long pin in the center of it. Push the pin in firmly. (it will only move a little bit) Reassemble dryer. CLEAN OUT VENT AND CORRECT IMPROPER VENTING to prevent a repeat of the condition.
