Question about LG DLE2532W Electric Dryer

1 Answer

I have an LG DLE2516W electric dryer a couple of days ago when I turned it on it was making a really loud noise and vibrating. Now, it won't turn, when I took off the top you can't even push the drum around. I also took out the vent in the back, there is nothing stuck in the pulleys the belt goes through. However, the part coming directly off the motor won't even turn a little. Does that mean the motor is locked up? Anyone with any knowledge of this I would appreciate your in put. Thanks, Renee

sounds very much like the bearing has seized on the drum.

I'm betting it's either stuck or REALLY stiff

your dryer drum wheels that support the drum are either stuck on their shaft or the shaft that they turn on are rusty or eroded out on the wheels/spindle and are creating the noise you hear,you need to access the drum and lower area to see these wheels there are 4 wheels 2 at the back of the drum and 2 at the front of the drum,the rear 2 are most likely the porblem,from the heat of the dryer element

I have an LG DLE5932W. I've been trouble shooting the dryer the past couple of days. It is making a loud vibrating noise that seems to be coming the element side of the dryer. Today I turned it on, went...


A vibration tells me it may be the idler pulley(s). If the pulley seizes, the belt will burn and break. If it smelled like burning rubber, then thats what happened

As soon as we turn on the dryer it's really loud and vibrates a ton. It just started one day


Hello

First make sure that its properly balanced, if the issue remains then it is due to the belt that is bad and its time for belt replacement. Usually loud noise comes when the belt is either worn out or broke. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

When I turn on my dryer on it gives a rattling/vibrating noise.


There maybe a lot of lont build up in the blower wheel housing. Take off bottom panel and take apart the blower wheel house and check for any lint build up....if it check ok, your drum rollers maybe worn....try checkin the blower wheel housing...hope this helps

Dryer doesnt do anything besides a loud noise


What kind of loud noise??  A loud electrical noise??  A loud squealing noise??
It's possible that there is a foreign matter inside the filter chamber jamming up the blower fan.  Pull the filter screen out and look down the filter chamber area and see if there is a sock jamming the fan from turning.  If you can pull it out, that should resolve your problem.  If not, you may need to call a qualified LG technician to resolve this issue.
