Question about AEG T57800 Electric Dryer

LG electric stackable dryer

I have had my dryer for about a year and a half which I purchase new. I recently moved and had a new 220 line installed for the dryer however when the electrician moved the unit back towards the wall, he cracked the aluminum vent and the dryer was blowing lint into the air. I was not aware of this right away so I was running the dryer for about a week when I noticed lint on the floor. The last time I used it, I set the timer to dry some bath towels and it started up, but when I went to get them out, they were still damp. The dryer will not turn on at all. No lights, no sound, no movement. I unplugged the unit and re-plugged it as well as checked the breaker and everything seems to be fine. I have not been able to move the unit out to check the back, but do you think the vent could be blocked causing this unit to shut off as a safety feature. Please advise. THANK YOU~

Based on your story, with no lights not even a sound that indicated you have press a button, its more likely that there is no power. check your outlet. there should be a 220 volt on the outer prongs and 110 v on the middle and against either outside prong. you may have a 220 but not the neutral which is 110 which is the voltage of the control. in some homes, even the neutral is attached to a circuit breaker. i hope i was able to help...

Kenmore stackable dryer not heating?


Check your venting and lint basket. Check blower for lint build up and blower wheel obstruction., test by trying to turn the wheel manually by hand (should be easy) May have to remove cabinet or front/back plate to get to it)

Next check the heating element itself with a meter for continuity OHMS CLOSED CIRCUIT. If not its defective.

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage. 220 because if u only get half or 110 volts you will be able to run the machine which uses only 110 to run motor but not the heater which uses a full 220,
Check the thermal cut off, the cycling and the hi limit thermostats.
For continuity or OHMS. If no ohms or resistance they need replacement.
Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.

I have a lg dryer with a 220 electric hook up plug and in my house there is only a 110 electrical outlet. is there any way I can just change out the cord to a 110 electric cord and use it?


No. the new dryers have to have a 220V power. You first have to replace or add a 220 outlet on the wall that matches the connector on the dryer.

WE HAVE HAD THE LG DLE2532W DRYER JUST OVER THREE YEARS. RECENTLY, WE HAD TO REPLACE THE DRUM BECAUSE IT HAD A CRACK IN IT. NOW THE REPLACEMNT DRUM (FOUR MONTHS OLD) HAS A CRACK IN IT AND THE DRYER IS NOT...


Here's one place you can order a new drum. However, if the drum has cracked twice in four months you need to find out if there's something else with the dryer that's making the drum crack. You also need to think if you're doing something like putting shoes in there or something that's stressful on the dryer.

It takes at least 2 60 minute cycles to dry clothes. Not even 2 years old yet. Not a new problem has always been this way. What is the deal.


Check the blower fan which is mounted underneath the drum on my DLE2514W front loading LG dryer. I experienced poor drying along with a loud thump at the start of each cycle. At first I thought it was a bad roller but later found that the blower fan had separated from its bracket so it was not turning with each turn of the moter but rather spinning freely.

Dryer will run for a second and sound three beeps and stops.


Sounds like the door switch has gone bad., but your description is confusing.

First, it takes a few minutes for you to feel the air blowing hot, particularly when the dryer is in a cold garage. The heating elements have to heat up the mass of the metal, and any clothes in the dryer.

The timer design is such that it can not speed up (the motor inside wont start running faster, due to it's electrical design.).

I am suspect that the door switch has failed for some reason, because reading between the lines, I think you are saying when you release the Start button, the dryer quits operating. If the door switch is bad, then it will cause that condition to happen.

Asko stackable dryer/Bosch stackable washer compatability


If you arer going to replace the washer with a Bosch Axxis model, it will simply plug into the back of the dryer (if it is electric) because normally the dryers are 220 VAC. Works A-OK.

Install 220 outlet for electric dryer or trade it for gas dryer?


Thanks for all the input!  We reached a compromise in hiring an electrician who was willing to come out today and install the connection for half what everyone else quoted...on a Sunday!  The laundry piling up in the corner was very persuasive in convincing us that your advice (in the end, we'd need a professional no matter which way we went) was prudent.  Thanks. jersey p

you need to first find out the best method of running your gas line to the location of your dryer..Make sure you also run a vent hose to dryer to the outside of your house, make sure you have 120 volt outlet, i would also run a 220 line as well just in case you need 220...
