Question about LG DLE2514 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

I have the LG Tromm DLE2514 electric dryer. It has never dried as good as any of my previous dryers. It takes 2 hours or more to dry a normal load of towels, and clothing can take 90 minutes vs. old dryer of 50 to 60 minutes. The Cooling Light stays lit the whole time the dryer is running (even on timed dry). Is that normal? Is this dryer just a substandard dryer? I have only had the dryer 14 months, but I bought it from Home Depot and they said that it was brand new and sat in their warehouse for 2 years????

The cooling light stays on so that is not the issue. Check to make sure you have power in both hot legs of your 220v power outlet.

Sounds like your outside vent is plugging up. Go outside your house and check for lint build up and just pull it loose with your fingers or a shop vac.

If it's not obviously plugged from outside, feel the volume it should be significant. If it's very weak (while running of course) your ductwork may be plugged elsewhere, for example at an elbow, or the joint between a flex hose and the actual duct.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: lg tromm dryer electric cooling light staying on

I started researching on here because I was having the same problems with my LG dryer. (It also happens to be the same model.) I discovered the vent hose was kinked.

With the lights, the cycle it's on that blinks. When your dryer gets to the last 5 minutes, the "Cooling" light will blink and the "Drying" light will go off. If you have the "Wrinkle" setting on after the 5 minute cooling cycle, the wrinkle cycle will start and circular lights will show where the minutes normally are displayed and the Wrinkle light will blink.

You have a problem with the exhaust vent in the house walls. Try this. Disconnect the dryer vent hose from the back of the dryer and see how well it dries a load of laundry. If it comes out alright, then you know that the vent in the house is clogged and will need to be professionally cleaned out. Good luck

My LG Tromm dryer is not drying. it turns & gets hot but the dampness is not blowing out of the dryer, it just makes them hot & wet



The most common problem for a dryer to take more than one cycle to dry is restricted air flow.

1.when the dryer is running go outside and find where the venting is located, there should be a good amount of air flow.
2. if the air flow is not good look at the ducting coming from the back of the dryer and make sure it is not kinked or pushed back to far.
there is usually lint build up some where along the ducting or at the end of the duct where it vents to the outside.
3. if you have access to a leaf blower,this can be used to help clear any lint build up inside the duct from the dryer to the outside venting.
move your dryer out and take the leaf blower tube and stick it in the hole and turn it on.
the vented louvers need to be removed from the ouside of the house to allow the lint and things in the duct work to be blown out.

My LG TROMM Dryer is not heating up and it takes several cycles to dry clothes,


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

If everything else in the dryer is working fine and it won't heat so it means that the thermal fuse which is located inside the rear panel on the blower wheel housing is bad and needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

My dryer is not drying the cloths it takes 3 times to dry


The main cause is a plugged exhaust vent in the wall. Try disconnecting the exhaust vent from the wall and run a normal load. If the load dries properly, then you will need to have the exhaust vent professionally cleaned.
Good luck

My LG Tromm dryer is taking two cycles to dry clothes. They are just not drying completely with one cycle.


make sure that the vent system is clear all the way to the outside. I've seen bird nest in these vents as well as just plain lint build up.
You should feel alot of air coming out when the dryer is running.
