Question about LG DLG7188 Gas Dryer

3 Answers

Dryer starts, but quits mid-cycle (time remaining blinks on/off)

The unit will not complete a dry cycle, usually stopping within the first ten minutes. Then, it will not restart until it's cooled off some (that's my guess). When I try to restart sooner than the dryer is "ready," the remaining time indicator just blinks at me; dryer will not start.

The ventilation is completely clear, from the lint screen all the way through the outside wall of the house, so it's not a blockage issue of any kind. It also doesn't appear to be overheating in any way.

And of course, I'm out of warranty by four months. Sounds like and engineered flaw. Any thoughts?

    I am having the same problem and I see that moister goes up by the turn dial . I wonder if that might be the problem?? I am trying to get help with mine but I do believe it is a defect. I also am having problems with my Ice make from the company LG. I hope they will own up to there defect and fix them. The cost a lot of money!!!

There is a problem with the firmware... if you have warranty just call the service person...
as i think this of problem may occur when you are working with the power just gets off at that moment the firmware may have got corrupted with this...
so i suggest you contact the technician and have a check with it....

Dont worry, there is just one reason that could be the cause, just check weather water inlet or supply is opened through out. The discontinous water supply can cause such problems else everything is fine and it could be a faulty piece. Please rate me..!!

Thankyou

Stop after star and the drying , cool down and etemded bumdle ares blinking


Hello Louis, thank you for your post!
From my understanding your Frigidaire dryer is stopping and multiple lights are blinking. I would suggest performing a reset on your dryer and you can do that by disconnecting power from it for at least ten minutes. If that does not help resolve your issue it could be a possible problem with your control panel or a wiring harness within the dryer. You may need to seek additional assistance from a professional technician for a complete diagnosis to be completed. Best of luck! -Matt

Whirlpool Dryer GEW9200LW1 skip digits when set to dry


Hello,

If the clothing comes out dry within a normal time,usually 40 minutes or less. Whats happening is the computer is recatulacting the time remaining to dry a load of clothes as it senses they may still not completly dry or even will drop off some time if clotes are dry before time computer calculated at start of cycle.

My dryer stopped mid drying cycle. The breaker in


Your dryer has an overtemp safety. Called a high limit, it has 2 wires connected to it, and usually is held in place by 1 screw. There will be a couple of them, the one closest to the element will be the bad one. It looks like a suppository, you'll see if you open up the unit yourself. DISCONNECT ALL POWER BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY ELECTRICAL REPAIRS!!!!!!!!!!

You may be experiencing "Heat Retention" by stopping your dryer mid-cycle, which you should NOT ever have to do! If you have a minor vent restriction or if you open the dryer mid-cycle when the heat is on, this will cause a disruption in the airflow and rising temperatures can keep the dryer from restarting until it has been cooled long enough.
Check your vent all the way to the outside for restrictions/obstructions every 6 months. Clean your lint filter after each load and DO NOT stop the dryer mid-cycle!
Note: Stopping the dryer mid-cycle can also cause severe burns and even melt polyester fibers.

It stopped mid-cycle..no warning, and wouldn't start again.


Unplug your dryer for ten min. This will reset the circuit board and reboot the system. Sometime small power surges can disrupt the curcuit and cause the unit to get confused. Rebooting usually will fix this type of problem with surges.
