    Why do you set it 52mins? does it shut off on any other settings? Has the control knob been removed and replaced wrongly?

You do not state a model or even a manufacturer, but I'll take a stab at this.
If you use manual (or timed dry) setting only, dryer should work fine, but all automatic settings are doing what you describe,..... sounds like the moisture sensor bar need to be cleaned off. They are usually two thin metal strips, about 4 to 6 inches long and a inch or so apart. They are generally located inside the drum, very near the lint filter. What has most likely happened, is that fabric softner sheet use has built up a waxy coating on the bars, preventing them from detecting the moisture in the clothes. The dryer sees this as a dry load, and just runs the last few minutes of a cool down cycle and turns off. Cleaning the bars should restore your dryer to work in the automatic drying cycles.

Dryer LG 1100 shuts off after a few minutes. If you set it for 54 minutes, you check if after 5 minutes it reads 14 minthen in 5 minutes it starts cooling down. The clothes are still wet.


Clean your lint filter, and clean the entire line vent from the dryer to the outside export port, also look inside the dryer vent hook up for obstructions and remove any lint. Keeping these parts lint free will save you energy and also drying time and maintenance repairs. My dryer is 18 years old.

Dryer wont turn on about 5-years old we bought on saturday it ran for about 10 minutes and shut off and will not restart. When you hit the on button you can hear what sounds like electrical current but...


Hi there, the electrical current hum is coming from the motor. there has been a failure within the motor windings and you will have to replace or repair this electrical motor. this will fix your dryer.

Before you purchase the motor, i would recommend checking all wire harnesses for lose connections and corroded contact clips as well. if the wires are connected and the wire harnesses are in good condition, replace the dryer motor.

Please rate and god bless:)

Drying timer on auto dry


I called LG...they said to unplug the dryer for 5 min. to reset the timer ...this solved the problem.
They also said not to use dryer sheets during the sensor dry cycle as the coating on the dryer sheets causes the sensor to malfunction as it can't read the humidity level in the dryer.
