You dry by sensor???

Clean your sensor. The machine thinks the clothes are dry because the sensor is covered with who knows what???

Check your owner manual for the proper way to clean the sensor.

I hope this works for you

My LG dle2514w dryer cooling light stays on al the time, and when operating under the "Sensor" dry selection, does not dry, or heat. I can override it and use timed dry, but still, why is this...


underneath the lint trap is the sensor, it is dirty. You will need to clean it, just be gently as if not you may break it, when you look down the lint trap it has two screws.

No heat, cooling light stays on


The heating element have got old and brittle over time and finally gave up the ghost. But it is not always the element. It could be one of the safety Hi-limits have blown. All parts of the dryer will have continuity if its working properly. Test for continuity by using a meter set on Ohms,or use a poor man's meter. You can make your own poor man's meter by using an ordinary flashlight . Break the circuit in the flashlight and add a couple of wires to it so that you can make the light come on in the flashlight, that's right hot wire that flashlight. When the bulb lights up you have a circuit! You now have a poor man's meter. The next step is to check each little gizmo on the dryer that the wires attach to. All the limits attached to the side of the heat element, the door switch (when door is closed) etc.should have continuity (closed circuit)(the light should come on in the poor man's meter) If you come across an thing near the blower housing with 2 wires attached to it, that is a thermal limit, a safety or a control thermostat (So as not to get a false circuit you need to remove one of the wires to each thing you check) Look for lint buildup or blocked vent going out the house. If everything is good and you have paid the electric bill, then the timer could be bad.

The cooling light is always on, and it takes about 90 minutes to dry a load.


In normal operation as the dryer is drying the "drying" light flashes and the "cooling" light is on steady until the 5 minute cooldown at which time the "drying" light stays on steady and the "cooling" light flashes. click on this lg link

Cooling light on?


The cooling light is always on, it flashes when it is in that part of the cycle, sounds like he put it in to a test mode. Was it a thermistor that he changed?
No heat, sounds to me like a thermostat might be blown. Call the guy back, if you haven't already.

Cooling light


The cooling light should be blinking. Mine did the same thing. It ended up being the fuse that was going to the dryer from the circuit breaker itself. I ended up replacing the whole heating element thinking that was the problem. Turned out to be a $17 fuse and problem solved. Hope this helps.
