Question about LG DLE2532W Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer won't start

I ran a small load of clothes and two pair of tennis shoes. The dryer stopped working in the middle to the load. Maybe off balance from the clunking of the tennis shoes? Have shifted it, unplugged and replugged, checked the breaker. I know it is getting electricity because the light inside is on, but no reaction when power button is pushed.

Dryer is growling when spinning heavy loads.


The bearings may be gone, but I don't know how old your machine is or the brand. If it is over 8 years old, consider replacing it. Maybe get an estimate from a repairman who knows your brand.

Dryer won't start. was drying a load and had a pair of tennis shoes in with the clothes. It stopped and now won't start back up. All lights, beeps etc. seem to work fine just won't start.


As silly as this seems, did you make sure the door is completely closed. This is a common problem when drying tennis shoes. One time when I was living in an apt. complex, I went to check on my laundry, and my shoes were lying on the floor (with a couple of other fabrics). I then stood by and watched the remainder of the cycle, and next thing you know - the door opens up and throws out my shoes. Never would've believed it unless I seen it with my own eyes. I would turn everything off, and then go through your regular routine. If this doesn't work, feel free to contact me - and we can go to Plan B...:) Good Luck to you, Jim

Dryer drum stopped rotating, dryer blower continues to work.


The belt probably broke, and coincidentally happened while drying the shoes. The belt is easy to replace. Open the back and you'll probably see the belt laying on the bottom

Dryer twists and knots up clothes


Many times, many types of Dryer have a variety of paddles. There are so many different ones, without your model, it's hard to know which your has, however, I have known many people that have had these problems.
  1. knots clothing;
    Solution: I have heard and seen a couple tennis balls or even a soft pair of tennis shoes used in the dryer whilst drying clothes keep this from happening. (again, the paddles make all the difference) I myself have always had Maytag, but even they are not what they used to be, however, the shoe trick works when we dry our large blankets and comforters.
  2. Length of drying time;
    Solution: Gosh, there could be many issues, but the first, I would think you either have too small exhaust tube, or it is kinked, smashed or the wrong type. Even the smallest of kink or flattening on many exhaust tubes will greatly effect the output of the exhaust. The only other thing could be overall length of exhaust, and possible clogging in the tube. Have a idea for a fix there as well. (if this is the rpoblem.
If you would like further discussions or ideas, please post here, and be sure to add as much info on dryer as you can, including year purchased and model number.

If the drying time has anything to do with my immediate thoughts (had similar problem when I just moved and reinstalled my own Maytag) I have a great fix to keep it from happening.

Whirlpool has been a good name for some years, in fact, they own Maytag now, so I am sure we can solve your issue as long as it isn't a problem with your particular unit itself as they do make a lemon evey now and again.

I have a Neptune model MDE9700AYW dryer that wont start


Check to see if the little tab in the door jam, which causes the dryer to turn off, is broken or bent. If its bent you may just need to bend it back.

Maytag Neptune dryer won't start/


I do not have that specific dryer but try these simple steps.
Maybe they will help you.
1. Shut the electric breaker off to the dryer for about 30 seconds and and back on.
2. Open the dryer door and inspect the switch that tells the dryer the door is closed. work it by hand just to make sure it is not stuck.
3. Spin the timer controls to another setting and see if the other setting will work.

That's all I've got for now...
