Question about LG Dryers

1 Answer

DLE5955 Tromm Dryer. We have had this dryer for 3 months. The cooling light has started to come on during the entire cycle and stays lit. Clothes are not drying as quickly as before. They are damp at the end of the cycle. Lint filter and dryer vents checked and okay.

    The same problem has presnted itself on my LG model DLE5977 electric dryer. The "cooling indicator stays on for all cycles, sensor-dry or manual. Clothes take far too long to dry.

Sounds like your outside vent is plugging up. Go outside your house and check for lint build up and just pull it loose with your fingers or a shop vac.

If it's not obviously plugged from outside, feel the volume it should be significant. If it's very weak (while running of course) your ductwork may be plugged elsewhere, for example at an elbow, or the joint between a flex hose and the actual duct.

Cooling light stays on during dry cycle. no heat is to dry clothes. I've switched the circut breaker numerous times and unplugged the unit many times also to "reset" . What's next..


Try a timed dry cycle instead of an automatic cycle. If that works, then you will need to clean off the moisture detection bars inside the dryer to get the auto cycle to work again. Look for two curved metal bars, about 3/16 inch wide and 4 inches long, about an inch apart, located just inside the front of the dryer, near the right side of the lint filter. (you'll have to stick your head in the dryer drum to see them) Often times, use of dryer sheets will result in a waxy coating forming on these bars, preventing the dryer from detecting the moisture in the clothes. The dryer sees no moisture, it goes into the cool down mode and then stops. Clean the bars off, and you should be back in the laundry business.

Lg tromm dryer electric cooling light staying on


I started researching on here because I was having the same problems with my LG dryer. (It also happens to be the same model.) I discovered the vent hose was kinked.

With the lights, the cycle it's on that blinks. When your dryer gets to the last 5 minutes, the "Cooling" light will blink and the "Drying" light will go off. If you have the "Wrinkle" setting on after the 5 minute cooling cycle, the wrinkle cycle will start and circular lights will show where the minutes normally are displayed and the Wrinkle light will blink.

Items in dryer are not quite dry, cool down cycle is real short, heat is maintained in dryer when it stops and wrinkles clothes. Cool down cycle went from 4 minutes down to one, skipping 3 and 2. Same...


check and make sure it has a clear clean vent.no kinks in vent hose.if yours vents thru roof then you may want a chimney sweep to come and sweep your vent out.if it goes thru a wall check and make sure know blockage.

Clothes are taking 3 cycles to dry and cooling light on front wont shut off


The vent is clogged.  To make sure, disconnect the vent from the dryer and run the dryer normally.  If your clothes dry normally, then have a professional vent cleaning company take care of the vent.  
The cooling light will always stay on during the run.  When it is blinking, the heat has stopped and is in the cooling process.
If there is no heating, you have a problem with the high limit switch or something else electrical and needs to be addressed by a qualified LG technician.
