Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Hi I have an LG TD-C70045E tumble dryer. The drum appears to have dropped slightly and I can see it is sitting below the metal pegs at the back. Someone looked at it and said it was the bearings and as the drum would have to be replaced it would be uneconomical to repair. It's only 4 years old! Does this sound right? I'd hate to dump it if it can be fixed, he didn't even take the back off. Thanks.

Rita,
The problem you describe really does not worth fixing since the parts ad labor should cost you over $400 and that why your tech told you it should be replaced.
There is no need to open the back (even if it looks better for the customer :) ) to diagnose this problem.
As an Appliance Repair NY company we see a lot of issues like that everyday and we also recommend to replace it.
You can purchase a new dryer for a little more and enjoy a brand new appliance.

My white knight tumble dryer wont start


Nothing works or drum fails to turn (tumble dryers)
Ensure that the power supply to the dryer is switched on, the timer is set to the desired drying time and the door is correctly closed. If you have a condenser model, also check that the bottle is empty and is fully pushed into the machine.
http://www.whiteknightrange.co.uk/whiteknight/faq.html

The first thing to establish when troubleshooting the clothes dryer is whether the dryer will start or not. If it won't, start by checking the outlet and the circuit breaker. Is the dryer plugged in or has it tripped the circuit breaker? If the breaker has been tripped, flip it back on and try the dryer again. The drum should turn without a problem.
If both plug and breaker are fine, you'll need to inspect the door switch as you continue to troubleshoot the tumble dryer. When you close the door on the dryer, a plastic peg should click and operate the switch which allows the dryer to work. The peg might be bent or broken, in which case it won't connect with the switch. You can try to straighten the peg, but if it's broken, you'll need to replace it. If the peg is fine, the switch has probably failed and will need to be replaced.

Water doesn't go to water tank. Any advice? thanks a lot Peter. LG DRYER TD-C70045E


Try unscrewing the water hoses and cleaning or replacing the filter screens where they screw into the unit and also the valves.

Ear-piercing, metal-to-metal squeaking from the back (rear of tumble drum) of unit. At random times during drying cycle, sound may stop for a while, only to resume as unpredictably as it...


could be back of drum touching the back panal... this can happen if the rear bearing is worn as the drum tilts slightly at an angle...

LG TD C70045E dryer not heating up, this has happened before and the guy just pressed a switch but cant remember where it located, please help!


On the LG TD-C70045E the reset button for the heater is located inside the back air-way cover. This is easy enough to remove and the button is obvious once the cover is off. The button will 'click' satisfyingly if it has tripped. Don't forget to switch off and unlug first...

Clean filter light stays on LG TD-C70045E Dryer


I had the same problem. It actually has nothing to do with the filters. If your dryer sounds like it wants to start the capacitor is blown.

Lg td-c70045e electric dryer power on but not turning


I had the same problem. Replaced the capacitor and now all is ok. Dryer is working 100%. If you hear a humming sound from the motor then it means the capcitor is faulty and does not start the motor properly.
