My LG steam dryer is stuck on pause. I've tried unplugging it and re starting. I've tried the other buttons. Nothing works. Help!

Possible that the processor in the main controller unit has hung up. If there is no result even after the power plug is removed for few hours or even overnight, it is possible that the controller unit has failed.
need to confirm if you able to source one for a test before you order or invest.

LG DLE5977 electric dryer, 3 years old. On power up: check filter display is lit. When cycle selction is made and start button is pressed, unit begins to heat, but dryer drum will not turn. Unit hums. I...

Your belt is likely broken. I am presuming you DO NOT have a setting on your machine that allows the drum to not turn or if yours does have such a setting you have not selected it!!!

I am not intimately familiar with your particular LG model even though rates me a LG expert.

Dryer tops are generally held in place with spring clips. Pop the top being careful to not mar the finish. Look for the belt (about 3/8 inch or so wide). The belt will be near the middle of the drum. Try to pick it up. If it is broken, you will be able to remove it. If it has slack in it but you can't remove it, it is probably off the motor pulley. Put it around the pulley through the belt tensioner.

Remove the front - use care you don't damage any wires.

The drum will fall free at this point. Take pictures with your cell phone to aid in reassembly.

You can get replacement belts from a advertiser, your local appliance parts place or visit

Lg dle3777w dryer filter light remains on and dryer is not working even after cleaning the filter.

I'm sure you solved the problem but as i had the same problem on my electric LG front loader and saw no response i figured I would leave one for anybody else in the future. My girlfriend told me the dryer would not start and as i looke i saw the panel would not power up, I unplugged the power cord for 5 minutes and the LG reset and the panel was on and reading clean filter after checking the filter which appeared clean I tried to restart the dryer at which time it powered off. I again unplugged the dryer and replugged it and again the display read clean filter. I then gtabbed a phillips #2 and unscrewed the filter lint sceen which had a total of 4 scews in the interior of the dryer holding the filter housing unit. Youll see a piece of the housing unit remains screwed into the washer hooked up to two electrical plugs. Seperate both plugs from the unit and unscrew it and remove the unit youll notice two silver strips on the unit and I'm guessing will be covered with a small amount of lint. Clean the unit with a brush and damp cloth inside and out reattach the unit screw first and housing unit and turn on. If the dryer again turns off unplug and youll see the clean filter light. Simply push the custom program light or anything similar and the panel should start working again. I hope this helps someone.

Fisher and Paykel Dryer will not spin, motor buzzing

take top off. set it going and give the drum a push by hand. if it starts and keeps going then the fault is the motor capacitor - cheap part

My LG dryer will not power up

You may have a broken door switch.  That would be the most likely source of your problem since the machine will not work if the computer senses that the door isn't closed.
