Question about LG DLG2532 Gas Dryer

1 Answer

My LG dlg2532 takes forever to dry clothes. When the drying cycle ends, the clothes are still quite damp. It's a gas dryer and the dryer seems to be getting gas since it does eventually dry the clothes hours and hours later. The vents all appear to be clean.......So what is the issue?

How long are the vents? do they go for miles in your house?(sarcasm) Does the dryer have good ventilation? Check the vents again and make sure it is clear.

LG Dryer takes too long to dry clothes


Sure the outside vent is not clogged up? If so it will overheat and turn it self off and do a poor job of drying the clothes.

Also check and make sure that all of the heating elements are working properly.

Have a whirlpool cabrio gas dryer. It takes several hours to dry one load of clothes. The clothes seem to stay damp towels may take all day... what could be the problem


Have you opened the door while its running to see if its warm inside (heater working) If its getting warm and still not drying the clothes properly you likley have a air circulation concern. With the unit running check the exhaust vent outside from dryer it should have a good flow of warm air, if not you have a restriction sowher between the unit and outside. Heat alone will take forever to dry clothing,you need good air circulation to remove the moisture from the clothes otherwise all you will end up with is warm moist clothing.This generaly happens over a long period of time and then all of a sudden you realize the dryer is not working like it use to..Hope this helps you with your concern.....

I have a Whirlpool Gas Dryer LGR6646BI-12 the clothes feel warm but not hot and they are still damp


The Dryness Level allows adjustment of how damp or dry the clothes are at the end of the cycle.
  1. Make sure the correct Cycle has been selected for the type of fabric being dried.
  2. If the correct cycle is selected and the clothes are still coming out too damp, use the Auto Dry Level button (Kenmore) or Dryness Level button to increase the Dryness level.

  1. If the highest Dryness Level setting was selected and the clothes are still damp, the Customer Focused Drying Mode settings that are built into the machine can be adjusted.
Dryers come from the factory set to Drying Mode 1 (default). Drying Modes 2 and 3, include additional drying time.
Note: This change will affect ALL Auto Dry cycles.
  1. Machine MUST be in Standby mode before beginning. (Standby mode = Plugged in, Power off)

  1. To select drying modes, momentarily press the Auto Dry Level button (Kenmore) or Dryness Level button (Whirlpool) again. The dryer will beep, and the display will flash and show the next drying mode number.
  1. With the door open and the display flashing the desired drying mode number, press the Start button to save the drying mode and exit diagnostics.
  1. Press the Pause/Cancel key at any time to cancel changes and exit from this mode.
Hope this works............

Doesn't get very hot


The only thing that will fail later on in the cycle would be your gas coils. They come with the gas valve on all LG's. But if your getting heat all the way through the cycle then I would check your venting and make sure its not restricted. This will cause long dry times. Hope this helps. _MJ_

I just bought a frigidaire affinity dryer and it takes forever to dry things. Some of my loads of clothes/towels have needed more drying time and forget bedspreads. I keep drying them over and over again...


Check the exhaust and make sure the exhaust hose on the back is not pushed back so far that it is closed off and also make sure that there are not a lot of turns in the exhaust hose. This will add time to a drying cycle like you would not believe.

Same problem. Just bought it used, all vents are clean


If it shows cooling, it sounds like the sensor bars need to be cleaned off. They are two silver strips about 5 inches long just on the drum side of the lint filter. When dryer softener sheets are used, the bars get coated with a waxy substance, and then they do not detect the moisture in the clothes, so they think the clothes are dry, and proceed to the cool down cycle. You should be able to do a timed dry cycle just as it is, but will need to clean off the bars to get all the auto dry cycles to work. NOTE: If timed dry does not heat, post a comment for additional items to check.

LG Stacking Dryer


To make sure it is a vent problem ,Do one load without the vent hose attaching to the wall ,keep in mind that it may blow out some dust, you may want to cover the end of vent hose with a nylon stocking for just this ONE time.Now run this 1 cycle on a timed dry cycle at the highest mark...60, 70,etc.If the clothes are dry at the final stopping point than you know your vent is blocked.Or you pinched the vent hose closed.It only takes a small blockage to create alot of waiting time for dryer to end its cycle.The faster the air can get out of the dryer the faster it dries.

LG DLG2532 Gas Dryer will only dry on manual setting


If you use dryer sheets, LG recommends no.  Dryer sheets cause a film that will not allow the sensors to feel the clothes moisture during the drying process thereby causing the computer to countdown the timer quickly.  To clean out the sensors, use a green pad and scrub the sensor bars inside the dryer drum.  That should remove the film left by the dryer sheets.

My hotpoint vtd00 dryer seems to have stopped drying


Have you cleaned the exhaust ducting? The duct that runs from inside to outside. Try that first. Sounds like your exhaust line is blocked. Also with the filter out get a flash light and look down the venting if alot of lint vaccum out. NOTE: Unplug the unit, wheather gas or electric.....and if it is a gas shut off the gas to the dryer before moving just in case something gets loose while moving. Hope this helps.
