LG Electric Dryer DLE2140W, it keeps running plus no heat. It says check filter, but filter is all clear.


Dryer will only turn off when cloths are dry. Seems like you have a failed heat circuit. If electric, first reset the circuit breaker (double) a couple of times. If gas, call a tech.

All of a sudden dryer won't come on. Checked connection, OK.


Check your circuit breakers. Your unit usually has a double circuit breaker. Find the correct circuit breaker and turn it to the off position to reset it then turn it back on.
Good luck

Hi, Make sure you check these to fix the problem.
  • Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.

  • Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.

  • A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

MY dryer won't heat


Check the dual-breakers for the dryer in the house electrical panel--push off, then on. If no help, then the heating element(s) in the dryer may be burned out or the internal thermostat is defective, both of which are accessible after removing the drum. After repair, vacuum out all air ducts including the hose to the outside. Also, wash the lint filter in hot water and detergent to remove fabric softener deposits that block air flow.

No heat on dryer just air.


Check the following to address this issue.




1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

DLE2532W electric dryer: BLOWN CIRCUIT BREAKER


I would check the wire at the breaker for a poor connection causing arcing and excessive heating causing the breaker to trip....with the breaker off, loosen the binding screw on the wire and check the wire for any signs of arcing. reattach the wire and tighten binding screw snugly.

another though, ensure there are no other devices connected to the wire that is heating.

LG DLE2532W NO HEAT


Sounds like the heater element is bad that is the main cause for them not to heat up . Their should be a cover on the back that comes off and you can get to the heater element after removing it .

If your dryer doesn't heat, check these:

Power from the house
Heating element
Thermal fuse
Wiring
Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.

Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

Wiring A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

If it is running, chances are one of the thermostats are gone. You have two on the heater bank, a high level and a safety, have them both changed.
