Question about LG DLE2532W Electric Dryer

Installing an extra exhaust fan

This is in response to your suggestion to install an extra exhaust fan on my LG dryer.

Note that I didn't replace the twisting vent tube until after it blew the second time.

But if a new fan will do it, then I guess I'll try that.

Not sure how to reply with my phone number - I'd rather it not get posted to the forum.

Thanks
Tom

As long as the exhaust is free from lint, it is probably ok to run the dryer. The cause of the pic above is from overheating generally due to blocked exhaust.

If you may want to look into installing a booster fan for your vent line.
It can really help in cases such as yours when the vent line is extra long.

Why would my crosley dryer get really hot but the clothes don't get dry


If the dryer is getting hot (the heater element is working) but the clothes aren't drying, it suggests that there is insufficient air flow through the dryer. Remove the exhaust tube from the back of the dryer. With the tube removed and the dryer running, check for hot air (lots of it) flowing out the exhaust vent of the dryer. If there is good air flow, check the exhaust tube for lint build-up or a clog that is blocking the air from flowing through the tube. If there is no air coming out of the exhaust vent with the exhaust tube removed and the dryer running, it suggests that the problem is with the exhaust fan inside the dryer.

I have a LG dryer model dlgx3002w not heating.


It sounds like you didn't install the ignitor properly. Try re installing the ignitor, because it's opening the gas valve saying it's hot enough to light, but if it's out of position, it won't create proper combustion.

Dryer heats sometimes and other times it does not. tested heater element and fuses and they were good. replaced both thermostats and it still does not heat well. any suggestions


You did not post make or model, so I can't be certain what technology your dryer employs or it's age. Here is my suggestion... Have you cleaned the lint trap area all the way to machine exit? How about the hose to the outside, is it clean and not bent or restricted? If there is a restriction, the steam cant escape and and it will take forever for the clothes to dry. I'd also check to see if there is air coming out the exhaust. If not, check to see if the fan is clogged with lint, intermittent or missing. If no air flows through the drum, it will keep it hot and moist, and never dry the clothes.

Lint is getting passed the filter into the exhaust duct, even though the filter is always cleaned out. The lint accumulates in the lint exhaust pipe that runs to the back of the machine, and then into the...


Some lint will always get by the lint screen on ANY dryer. None of these screens are perfect and, YES, this is normal. This is why a routine inspection of the dryer exhaust ducting and internal cabinet are recommended about once per season to ensure the dryer remains running efficiently.

However, there are some things to consider when it comes to dryer ducting installation. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574332-dryer_ducting_installation_advice

Most excessive lint problems are a result of improperly installed dryer exhaust vent ducting. An excessively long run causes more resistance on the blower motor which will reduce its ability to sufficiently push all the lint out of the exhaust. Each bend in the run also creates choke points where lint can potentially accumulate.

The following link can give you some additional pointers on dryer heating efficiency:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3578821-dryer_takes_too_long_to_dry

You may or may not be experiencing poor efficiency, but if you are getting excessive lint build up, it will eventually lead to longer dry times and a dryer that will actually overheat to the point of failure. Excessive lint build up is also a fire hazard.

You will experience this problem with ANY dryer as the performance of the best dryer will alway depend upon how well it is installed. This is not to imply that you have done a poor job in installing your appliance. I'm providing this information to give you some things to consider. Most consumers are not aware of the fact that they still need to perform routine maintenance on their appliances to make sure they run efficiently and problem free.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know, I hope this information is helpful to you.

Clean Dryer Lint Vent in Kenmore elite HE4


If you wish to clean the interior cabinet of the dryer follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG the dryer. Dangerous voltages are still present even with the dryer turned off.

2. Open the dryer door and remove the lint screen. IMPORTANT: You must remove the lint screen first in order to remove the blower fan housing.

3. Remove the lower toe panel directly below the dryer door by removing the screws under the bottom front edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off. NOTE: For better access, you can prop the front feet of the dryer up (a 2x4 works well).

4. Loosen the screws on the blower fan housing directly below the drum and remove. There's usually a small clip holding the cover in at the bottom that you may need to pull out to release. NOTE: You may also have to disconnect the auto dry sensor plug (yellow wires with white plug - use a small screwdriver to release the locking tabs) and/or ground wire to accommodate removal of the cover.

You should now have access to the dryer interior and the blower fan squirrel cage motor. Take the time to clean out the blower fan housing cover as well. A long bristle brush made for dryers works well at removing any lint inside the dryer in the hard to reach places, followed by vacuuming.

NOTE: After cleaning, you may experience a slight burning odor. This is normal as lint gets stirred up in the cleaning process and can settle on the heating components. The odor should dissipate after a short period of use.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Why does the dryer overheat?


First guess is not enough airflow -- See how much air is blowing out the exhaust vent. If it seems weak, first make sure there is no excess lint in the exhaust path (check inside the dryer as well as the exhaust hose). If there still isn't enough air moving, the blower fan is likely loose on its shaft. If the dryer is overheating and you have very strong airflow, then the temperature detectors in the exhaust path are probably not ever telling the heating element it's warm enough. Check for loose wires, or you might have to replace the detector.
