My LG gas dryer DLG5988W

My dryer when I turn it on, "hums" instead of turning on. The lights go on but it doesn't actually start drying or giving me an error code.
Lint filter is clean.
Thanks for any assistance

MY DRYER SHOWS ERROR CODE E64 MODEL # EIED55HIW0. IT DRY FOR 3 TO 10 MINUTES THEN THE ERROR CODE COMES ON I TURN IT OFF THEN BACK ON.


I have no error code book to look at, but your description of the symptoms gives me a clue.
Dryers now have many temperature sensors and fuses built in to prevent fires.
It sounds like one of your sensors or a fuse is "popping" because of a lint build up inside your machine.
That lint build-up can be way down deep inside the machine, and might require you take the whole machine completely apart to clean it.
I have had to do this on several machine, gas and electric.
God bless your efforts.

GLEQ2152ES0 dryer stops after ten minutes and then blinking lights on the right of the side panel. The lights that blink simultaneously.


The dryer is telling you what is wrong with it. Count the number of flashes the drying, cooldown, pressaver and clean filter light are flashing then count the number of times the control/start light is flashing. That will give you the error code number.

Trying to get the service Manual for awz 3477 whirlpool dryer. The heating element goes on but after about 5 minutes it turns off + lint light goes on. Have cleaned the traps. thinking thermostat?


Have you cleaned the sensor bar? Did you remove the grates and clean out the lint traps, not the filter the actual traps? Does it have any codes stored? Most modern dryers can give error codes (even ones without a display)

Sound like thermostat is not working. Should turn off heating elements when drying temp. is reached.

Frigidaire dryer dries for a few seconds then stops and lights blink.


Hi laylabetes - Answering your question, there isn't a way to actually CLEAN the control panel. Depending on an actual diagnose from a professional, the part would need replacing or if possible repair. However, if your model is electric, turns and there is no heat, it could possibly be a blown fuse. There are two house fuses that supply voltage to your dryer circuit in your fuse box. If one of the two is blown, the dryer may turn but will not heat. Check and replace fuse in fuse box if necessary. Please feel free to reconnect if this does not resolve your issue - Best, Chris

Our LG DLE5977w dryer doesn't dry our clothes. The drum turns and there is heat, but it seems there is no air flow. We checked the vent hose and no clogs. When we cut it on the "drying"...


Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

Drying humming but drum will not turn


the humming is from the motor,try turning the drum by hand,if you can turn the drum the motor is bad, it might start after you spin the drum but it will stop again,if you can't turn it the belt could be locked up on something or something is stuck in the blower wheel located underneath the lint filter,you might have to remove the duct that the lint filter slides into to get at whatever might be stuck in the wheel.
