Question about LG Washing Machines
I've had an LG Tromm WM3677HW washer/dryer combo for about 4 years now. Last month I had to replace the drain pump. Just last week, the dryer stopped drying things completely (well, as completely as this unit can anyway). The clothes are hot, just still damp. We have to run an extra dry cycle to to get all the way there. I've tried increasing and decreasing the load size, with no change. I've checked the drain hose for kinks, and found none. I've also cleaned the trap, but there was hardly anything in there. I read in another post that you can press SPIN and SOIL LEVEL to get a diag code, and got 252 (anyone have a link to the diag code list?). Anyone have any ideas?
If your unit is a 220 volt, which I'm sure it is, make sure that both breakers are functional. Sounds too easy but I've seen it many many times.

2 52 is not a valid code. 2 is normally unused and valid codes end at 49.
Parts that must be tested are timer board, thermostat/high limit and dumpness sensor.

There is a lot more to investigate :(
Try removing the vent line from the rear of the dryer and if this does not help then you will be sure it is, an internal problem.
Below are the causes for :-
It normally takes about 45 minutes for a dryer to dry a full load. If your dryer is taking more than an hour or not working, check these.
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 duct work
Your dryer has some internal duct work. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal duct work 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.
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 duct work with two screws. Hope i helped you.
