Question about LG DLE2514 Electric Dryer

Open Question

My DLW2514W dryer works for a few minutes and then cuts off. When I try to restart it, even the controls refuse to light up. I find that if I unplug the appliance and then plug it back in, it runs again for a few minutes before conking out. What do you think is happening? Is it a quick fix or do I need to find another dryer?

SOURCE: Gas LG dryer works fine,

First, check to see if there is strong air flow out the house at the exterior dryer vent. It is very important to have good air flow for gas dryers. Second, if you do have good air flow and you do get ignition but the burner shuts down quickly and won't relight, the most likely cause is the coils on the gas valve. They heat up when current passes through them and can open up electrically. When they cool down, the process can repeat. The coils for LG gas valves are not available as separate parts. You have to order a complete gas valve, but you can then take the coils off the new valve and swap them out onto the original valve so you don't have to change out the entire valve. If you need instructions on how to get at the gas valve, let me know (with your model number).

Remember, check your air flow first !
Please rate this solution once you have completed your repair. Thanks.

SOURCE: Kenmore Series 70 Dryer cuts off after a few minutes

The bearings in the motor have probably worn out. Disconnect the motor and take it out of the dryer. See if it turns roughly or not at all by hand. Also try and move the post left to right and up and down and see if there is play in it. It should move very little if at all in those directions and should spin freely if it's good.

Refrigerator will not restart for a very long period of time after power cut.

there may be a faulty capacitor for the compressor motor
I would suggest a technician check it out as it should come back working within minutes of a power cut
there will be a short delay until the pressures even out as compressors have difficulty starting under pressure but you delay is extreme and needs checking out.

Control Locked

Sounds like we need to try to reset the system!

Huuum At your service!
Lets try this,
Like with an error code.
This can reset the system if it is electronic!
Unplug the appliance and wait a 5 minutes then restart it.
If you can't reach the plug, use the breaker to cut the power for 5 minutes.

It's like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
Usually it corrects some error problems if they are not serious.
Or they are sometimes just a glitch.

Let me know how it works!
Waiting for your reply!
