LG Tromm Electric Dryer

Hey just a quick question, the coating on the drum of my LG Tromm Dryer is comming off, is that normal wear and tear after 6 or 7 months in use? I've never seen a dryer drum do that.

    Thank you Master_Tech, I just wanted to make sure because the service tech that came to change the drum was trying to tell me that it was normal wear and tear. He was quite upset that he had to come and change and this just proves my point!! Once again Thank-you!!

    I am experiencing the same problem with my LG tromm gas dryer after less than 1 yr of use. We dry a lot of baby clothes that have buttons on them but this has to be considered normal use. Anyway, we are having Sears come check it out since it is under warranty.



    I will update with the result...

My lg tromm washer sudenly started making a grinding sound and the drum does not spin. What is wrong?


You don't say whether the drum turns freely by hand.
It could be a broken spider or a seized or broken bearing or something come adrift in the tub causing it to jam.

The top will need to be removed for a closer inspection and it might be a simple and quick repair but from your description it will probably be absent from your home for a day or three and cost quite a lot.

Why is my LG TROMM frontloader dryer making a loud noise when running?


If the washer is making a loud noise the rear drum with bearing might need to be replaced. On this washer the bearing might not be sold separately, the entire rear drum might have to be replaced. This is a very involved repair and will require disassembling most of the washer. However, the problem is going to get worse very quickly and so either the drum and bearing will need to be replaced or the washing machine.

Where is the sensor located on a lg tromm elect dryer


The moisture sensor is located in front grill area inside the dryer. If you look inside the drum where the filter screen mesh is, you will find 2 curved metal bars. Those are your moisture sensors.
Hope this helps.

I have a LG Tromm DL62524W my dryer no longer is getting any heat , and on the settings it says its on the cooling setting and I tried to change the settings.


It's possible that the high limit switch has failed and needs to be replaced. You will need to tear down the machine to get to it.
Good luck

My LG Tromm dryer started purring today. It is a constant noise while the dryer is running and sounds like a large cat purring.


The guide that the drum sits on may have been damaged or worn or maybe a piece of fabric or some foreign material is lodge in between. The top cover of the dryer can be remove so you can examine it. Of course makes sure it is unplugged before doing any of that. Most of the time the drum guide is made of plastic material and wears out too. Good luck
