    Your PDF submittal contained more information than that provided with my purchase. Specifically, all of the disassembly instructions and component drawings are precisely what I was after. Now I can fix this myself without shelling out another $90. Thanks.

    Only question I have now is, where did you obtain this file? From your factory training documents?

I have an lg 5988 dryer, only will stay heating on delicate cycle. any other cycle I have to reset, by pushing the button on the sensor on the exhaust inside back of dryer. I replaced that sensor 3 ti


Sounds like a airflow problem. Either the House vent is clogged or some major build up in the blower or lint housing.

Remove the vent hose from the dryer and see how well it is blowing, then reconnect the vent and check outside, it should be close to the same.

House vent should be short and strait as possible, and metal venting only.

Dryer does not heat constantly. It starts to heat then turns off the gas. I need to dissamble it to test the parts.


Sounds like a block in the exhaust. Remove exhaust pipe and clean pipe. This is a huge fire hazard and your dryer is likely saving you from a fire. Remove large back panel on dryer. Clean all passages that handle airflow from lint screen back to exhaust. Restart. If this does not work, be happy that it is now clean :) The issue is likely your flame sensor at this point. Looks a bit like a spark plug. Short term fix. Clean probe with a dollar bill. Seriously, a dollar bill. Replace and restart. Order a new flame sensor.

LG DLEX2450R NOT HEATINF AND AIRFLOW SENSOR ERROR


Make sure the exhaust vent going outside is not clogged. If it is open make sure the air way in the unit is free from excess lint also. If all is clear you may have a faulty sensor.

Get some windex and clean the buildup off the sensors strips so that dampness can be detected by them and retry.
You can remove the smal sensor board mounted near the timer and clean corrosion off the contacts then plug it back in and retry if my first suggestion of cleaning the sensor strips don't work. In electronic sensing the wet clothes rub against the sensors and discharge a capacitor on that board. As long as the capacitor is discharged the motor will not get any power from the board. When no more wet is detected the board will power up the timer and move it on over to cooldown and end of cycle.

Bahama Blue front control panel AGL31533006 is over $100. Touch up paint should be available from LG, but servicer may have to call parts department directly for a part number. (I did to get some red)
Note: It is the consumer's responsiblity to provide someone to assist with removal of a stacked dryer if the washer needs service, or to pay servicer for a second trip and a second servicer if consumer is unable to provide an assistant to help remove the stacked dryer and replace it. Servicer should not have even attempted to remove stacked dryer by themselves, as personal injury and / or product damage could result.

I suggest you have the service provider order the correct touch up paint which you purchase from them. In the future, please make sure you always inform a service company if there is a dryer stacked on the washer ahead of the appointed service date, and if you are able to provide an assistant to help remove and replace said dryer, or if you need to have the service company bring along additional help. (at additional cost, of course)

LG DRYER DLE2532W DISASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS


DLE2532W is an electric heat model. (a gas model would be a DLG......) To get a rear control LG dryer apart: Open door and remove two phillips head screws at the 5 and 7 o'clock positions. Use a putty knife to release the clips holding the top panel to the dryer front by pushing the clips in at the seam of the dryer top and front, a couple inches in from each side. Swing top back. Remove two phillips head screws at the top, allowing front panel to pull forward. Unplug drum light and door switch and drum sensor plugs, allowing front panel to be completely removed and set aside. Now, look at the burner area at the lower right. Behind the gas valve you will find a small (about dime sized) high limit thermostat on the left side of the burner cone. It has two wires attached and has a small pin in the center of it. (Only on gas models) Push the pin in.
Now, if that get's you ignition again, CORRECT VENTING ! Get rid of flexible vent material. (use only rigid aluminum vent pipe and elbows) Clean out vent pipes and outside vent hood. Outside vent hood should be the kind with a four inch flap for the opening, not a two inch flap. Tripping of the high limit thermo is almost always caused by inadequate air flow.

ROPER DRYER WILL NOT HEAT


Put the back panel back, and hope you havent done permanent damage
the back does not come off roper dryers for service
the front does
the back panel serves solely as a mounting point for important fixtures
there is no reset button
there are thermal fuses, if the thermal fuse, mounted on the exhaust duct or fan housing has failed, it must be replaced, but they are not expensive
look like this de074eb.jpgbcb6b5f.jpg to access the dryer mechanism

unplug dryer
remove lint filter
remove 2 screws under lint filter
with putty knife or other blunt blade, depress spring catches at front corners of top cover
raise front cover
remove 1 screw each side of front panel 1/3 from top
remove door switch wires
remove front panel set aside
test all thermostats heater and thermal fuse with ohmmeter, remove 1 wire test for conduct replace wire, no conduct replace
the local parts store will have the part, labelled whirlpool, ~$14 for thermal fuse, ~$40 if heater

examine rear panel reinstall any thing that is dismounted
while the dryer is open
Clean the lint out of fan, fan housing, ducts
airflow blockage is the 99% cause of thermal fuse blowing, some lint always gets past the lint screen

Dryer wont heat


About all that is left to replace is the flame sensor mounted at 9o'clock on burner flame tube, but I would double check your airflow, This is CRUCIAL to the normal operation of the dryer.
Also, a lint filter with an invisible coating from fabric sheets can cause an airflow disruption, try running without clothes and the filter removed.
Tip: Always provide the complete information provided on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the user’s manual. This will help you acquire a more accurate and expeditious response to your complaint.
