LG W/D combo not drying completely

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?

    This issue is regarding the drying cycle on a washer/dryer combo.

  • br0kenstuff Sep 07, 2009

    I'll take a look at a couple of those things, but this unit doesn't have any duct work as it is a condensing drying system in a washer/dryer combo. I'd love to know wheat the diag code 252 represents. Any thoughts?

    Thanks for the response. Do you know where I can find a list of the codes?

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.

Hi,

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.

  • Vent
  • Heating element
  • Internal duct work

  • 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 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.

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 duct work with two screws. Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

We have a wm3677hw LG washer/dryer combo. it goes into the dry cycle and keeps adding water. what is the problem. we have cleaned all the internal tubes. checked the lower heating element and it is not...


Hello & Welcome to FixYa
If you have already tried cleaning the vent then the problem is with the Thermal fuse. When the thermal fuse goes bad it cannot be reset and replacing it is recommended repair.It is located on the blower wheel housing inside the rear panel to the exhaust duct. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Where does the lin tgo on my LG TROMM Model WM3677WH


Per the LG web site, the combo units are self cleaning. The trapped lint is washed out of the system automatically.
You should pay attention to the "cleaning" instructions for this unit. It is important to keep excessive soap buildup cleared out. Also be sure to use the correct soap - special, low suds.

Lg wm3677hw combo washer drain pump repair question


You replace the whole drain pump. Pretty easy to do from the opening in the bottom by resting the unit on its back. (Make sure you drain the unit completely) You should be able to get the drain pump (pt #4681EA2001D) from http://www.encompassparts.com/lgconsumer/ for less than $50 + s&h.

Washer-dryer # wm3677HW will not dry,heats up, run, on and on


You're a moron. This unit washes and dries. That's the whole point of it. Perhaps you should do some research before answering the question. the most likely cause is the water lever sensor.

LG Senseclean washer dryer combo won't dry


The problem is likely due to lint build up in the condensing unit. I found a solution here:
http://www.motusconnect.com/blog/2009/1/5/lg-washer-dryer-drama-%E2%80%93-diy-fix

I also had a softball size ball of wet, packed lint in the condensing unit. I found that the unit can be cleaned without tools or dis-assembly by:
  1. draining the water.
  2. laying the washer on it's back.
  3. removing the hose clamp on the rubber bellows that connects the drum to the condensing unit (right hand side of machine).
  4. digging the lint wads out with your fingers and a small screwdriver.
Happy drying!
