Press home.
Press Help.
Press both My Cycles and Back and hold until service mode comes on.
it will tell you what the problem is.
(Blower not getting up to speed.)
(There is a problem with the inlet thermister.)
(There is a problem with the Heater Box.)

Most likely it is the blower motor.
Test for ~15 ohms between red wires, blue wires, and yellow wires. If ok...
Remove it and open it up. Check the circuit board inside the motor and all of the coils. there is a hall sensor in there. Check the diodes. Make sure you put it back together correctly.

This is a very easy one to fix!. Follow these tips, carefully:
1. Turn off the oven with all knobs to lowest temperature, oven off etc. (obviously!)
2. Turn off ALLl electricity to the oven using the electrical breaker box. It should be a double wide switch since it is a 240 volt oven. If you are not sure, turn oven on, and then flip the wide breakers (and turn off oven when you find it!!) .
OTHERWISE, turn off ALL electricity to the house. That is the master breaker at the top of the breaker box. Make sure the electricity is OFF. You can work safely now. Use a flashlight in oven if needed since the inside light will be off too..
3. Take out all racks and items out of the oven so there are no obstructions.
4. Take out the old element by first unscrewing the screws on the sides of the face plate, using a phillips (cross) screw driver. Keep screws handy. Don't toss them or loose them.
5. Wiggle the element side-to-side holding it in the BACK of the element with two hands. It should come out easily if you gently wiggle it, and then pull. Do not just pull it at the end of the loops or sides of the loops. Use the back v shape part closest to the stem.
6. INSPECT THE ELEMENT. Do you see any black steaks or burn marks beyond the face plate that indicate arcing of the electricity? If so you may have a short inside the element holder. Then you need to call a repair person.....
7. If there are any spacers or L shaped attachments on the old element, take them off to use on the new element. you can clean them with vinegar and soup and water.
8.. Take time to CLEAN the oven floor and hard to reach areas in the back of the oven, since everything has been removed. You can use Easy-Off, or spray stuff, but please remember to wipe it out. Use a spray that can be used in a COLD oven. Use VINEGAR and then a solution of baking soda to fully clean out the lye-based cleaner. Don't spray stuff into the holes for the element!!! Just wipe that with vinegar only. Let it dry thoroughly. Isn't nice to have it so clean?!

9. Take the NEW element out, and use a CLEAN paper towel/cloth towel to hold it at the V section. Inspect it and the prongs. Using the towel will prevent getting hand oils/sweat on the element that may cause corrosion later.
10. If the new element does not have spacers or L feet on it to keep it off the floor of the oven, use the old element's feet, after they have been cleaned and dried. Gently pop them on in the same locations.
11. Hold the element with the towel in both hands in the V shaped area in the back of the element. and set the prongs into the hole/outlet, and push GENTLY, wiggle it back and forth as far as it can go, and push it in straight. The face plate should be snug against the back wall and aligned with the screw holes.
12. Screw in the screws, but not all the way, either with the new ones that came in the kit, or the old element's screws. Tighten them in slowly, and do it for the left one a little, then right one, By alternating the tightening of the screws, you can keep the element aligned, and prevent bending of the face plate. Tighten them so the element will not wiggle or move, but NOT too tight, forcing it. since you may need to replace this element someday, and the oven heatup/cooldown cycling may make it impossible to unscrew it later.

Now, turn on the electricity at the breaker first. Turn on the oven SLOWLY to about 200 F, to see if the element heats up uniformly. You can use your hand about 6 inches above to check the entire coil, but don't touch it!!!! If there are cold spots, or it is not heating up, check your work above and repeat carefully.

If it heats up uniformly to 200 F, then step it up to about 300 F, and see if the red glow is UNIFORM on the entire coil. You can go up to 350 F and let it "bake in" for at least 15 minutes to when the oven reaches the set temperature. Watch to see how the red glow dies out too. It should be uniform.

If the element does not heat uniformly or you see any very bright regions with dark areas near it on it or sparking, REMOVE it and get a replacement. Sometimes the new element has been "cleaned" with chemicals or handled poorly at the plant that cause problems.

After it " bakes in" for at least 15 minutes, any residues will be burnt off, and if glowing uniformly, it is good-to-go. Put back the racks, and enjoy.

Dryer not drying due to lack of heat


Check the following text to address this issue.

Note: Normal drying time for a dryer is about 45 minutes (some may take up to an hour).

1. Venting
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

2. Thermostat
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.

3. Heating element
A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes. Replace the element if found defective.


A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

LG Dryer takes way long to dry


Let's work together to get to the bottom of this problem. begin with these thoughts
;
It normally takes about 45 minutes for a dryer to dry a full load. If your dryer is taking more than an hour, check these.

Vent
Heating element
Internal ductwork
Cycling thermostat
Vent Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance.

Heating element Your dryer's heating element may be partially burned out. If it is, your dryer still heats, but at such a low temperature that it takes three or four times as long to dry the clothes. If the element is partially burned out, replace it.

Internal ductwork Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum, contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

Cycling thermostat Although this isn't a common problem, one of the thermostats that controls the temperature in your dryer may break and cause the dryer to heat poorly. If so, you need to replace it. The thermostat is usually a small, round, black device mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate is mounted to the internal ductwork with two screws.

Hello: I have a Maytag, do not know model # as I inherited the 5 year old model when I purchased a condo and it is now 7 years old. The front of it states Maytag - Dependable Use, Heavy Dtuty - Large...


I ALWAYS START WITH VENTING WHEN CALLED WITH LONG DRYING TIMES BUT I HAVE SEEN WHERE ONLY HALF OF THE HEATING ELEMENT IS WORKING, WHICH IS PRETTY RARE. A NORMAL LOAD WOULD BE WHATEVER THE WASHER HAD IN IT WHICH WOULD BE LOOSLY FILLED TO THE TOP ROW OF HOLES IN THE WASHER TUB. THE ONLY OTHER QUESTION I WOULD ASK IS IF THE WASHER SEEMS TO BE SPINNING OUT PROPERLY AND IF THE CLOTHES ARE GOING INTO THE DRYER TOO WET.

Dryer heats slowly


When dryer heats too slow, that means that there is a problem either with the heating element, the thermostat, or the vent.
