I have a LG Electric Dryer DLE5932W. When I run it on any of the settings in sensor dry the dryer turns off before the clothes are dry and you have to run it multiple times to get a load dry. Then if you...


this could be operator error please hear me out...... when wash bath towels you also put in wash cloths and hand towels .... there is a sensor in dryer drum shroud in front of lint filter to metal silver strips when the clothes are tumbling they sweep across this sensor telling the dryer heat to stay on and continue to dry.... if th small wash cloth sweeps it first before the bath towel then u get the same results as your describing just like if you were waqshing colors load like cotton tshirt and blue jeans the tshirt is going to dry way faster than blue jeans so if the tshirt sweeps that sensor first the dryer going to shut off we have to sort our clothes to thickness ans same size articles just try it once i bet your clothes are dry when cycle completes

Takes three cycles to dry towels, displays 45 min. turns off within 30 min. still not dry


2 possible reasons, either the towels have not been spun at a high enough speed and are too wet, or the dryer is not getting hot enough because it is not switched to a high enough heat setting or there is a partial element or thermostat or humidity sensor failure. You should spin your towels as fast as you can, 1000 MINIMUM but 1400 or more is better. Did it ever work? Is it a new drier? Is it getting hot? 45 mins is a short time anyway to dry a full load of towels.

Takes 4 hours to dry a load of towels. plenty of heat - just not drying


How damp are the towels? More moisture= more time to dry

Is the dryer full to the top with towels? There needs to be enough space to allow for air flow in and out.
Also check exhaust vent to make sure it is not blocked.

The machine heats up, ( the clothes are steaming), but they are not getting dry. It is to the point where you can dry one towel at a time ... don't know if it is an easy fix my husband can sort out, or if...


It sounds like the heating element is partially burned out. If the element is partially burned out, the 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. Make sure all duct work is clean.
Although it is not a common problem, the cycling thermostat could be bad, one of the thermostats that controls the heat in the dryer may break and cause the dryer to heat poorly. The thermostat is usually a small, round, black device that is mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate is mounted to the internal duct work with two screws. Hope this helped. Good luck.

I dried a burgundy comforter in my new dryer & the inside turned pink. How do I get it out & will it stain other loads, such as my whites?


I recommend using Automotive Brake Cleaner and following up with mild dish soap . Dry with towel. Run dryer for 15 minutes with a few old but clean towels . If the stain is still visible but not on the towels then I would say that it would NOT stain you other clothes.

Clothes not drying


A couple of possibilities to check. First, is the lint trap empty? If so, then the symptoms point to hot air bypassing the drum. Look for broken or misaligned plastic ducting inside the dryer itself. Check the exhaust air for moisture, as that is a better indicator than temperature. Don't forget that towels hold an enormous amount of water, & can be extremely long in drying, especially if not spun enough.
