SOURCE: squeaky dryer drum...felt thing came off how to replace it?

Squeaking is cause by the drum bearing worn out and telling the tale. As it get thinner and thinner it begins to rub against the metal outer casing it is embellished in. To inspect it you must rmove tyhe front and get the drum out. Start by opening the the door and removing the screws holding down the top. Then raise the top and get the screws out thathold the front on. Use the rear acces panel(if applicable) to get the idler loose or access that idler from the front.e24a4b7.jpg

SOURCE: my dryer takes long time to dry the clothes. It

Check the following areas thoroughly to address this issue.


1. Venting
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

2. Thermostat
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.

3. Heating element
A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes. Replace the element if found defective.

NOTE***(This unit is equipped with a dryness control board. if all points above check out ok, replace this board).

I have Samsung gas dryer model DV410. no heat, replaced two thermal fuse and hi low limit. Now it only works with timed cycle mode. the rest mode, it runs only for least the 5 minutes and shut off.


timed cycle mean dryer not on sensor dry mode. check wire connection on moisture sensor bars (i think you forget to put 2 wire connector put together). when you use other cycle dryer use moisture sensor to dry cloths so sensor not working dryer will stop in 5 minutes or so because dryer think there are no wet cloths to dry. hope this help you.

Hi,Your sensor dry is controlled by a moisture sensor inside the unit and below the vent grill. Take a wet wash cloth and clean the sensor, this problem is common when dryer sheets are used. If you want you can use rubbing alcohol and a cotton ball to clean it. This should be done from time to time so the sensor can detect the moisture in the clothes as the pass. Give this a shoot, you have nothing to loose and everything to save.
Get back if you have anymore issue or this doesn't correct the problem.

More than likely the temperature sensor has gone bad. If the unit is under warranty I would contact the dealer...otherwise you need to replace the sensor.

The drying time goes for normal mode start at 34 minutes to 30 minutes left then drops to 20 minutes then goes down to 17 minutes left then suddenly it stops and says complete. so the normal mode doesn't...


Yes, I believe the "normal" setting is part of the sensor dry. So, if the sensors, bars located on the inside of basket, do not detect moisture, the time will decrease and eventually stop. Locate the sensor bars, get some scotchbrite pad, and lightly clean the two metallic "bars" on the inside of drum. I find alot of buildup from dryer sheets inhibiting the conductivity of the sensors. I would start from there. If that doesn't fix it then you may need to call for service. hope this helps.

Electric Dryer Shuts Off


During the auto-drying cycle, the moisture sensor could be the problem.

If it also shuts off prematurely during the timed cycle, the operating thermostat could be turning the heaters off before the machine reaches operating temperature. Another possibility is that the operating thermostat does not turn off the heaters at all. When the machine heats up, it gets too hot and the high limit thermostat turns the dryer off.

GE Profile Dryer - sensor problem


When I pull up the exploded view of your model, it does not show an individual moisture sensor, but is does show disconnect plug(s) for it. I can only assume that the sensor bars are an intrical part of one of the front bulkhead components. That all being said, the most common reason for your symptoms is when people use fabric softener sheets in the dryer, the sheets leave a waxy type coating on the silver sensor bars inside the drum, near the air inlet to the lint filter. If you clean those two (usually about 4 inch long x about 1/4 inch wide) metal bars off, they will be able to detect the moisture level of the clothing again, and your dryer will work on auto dry again.

Machine drys fine on timed cycles but shuts off before clothes are dry on automatic cycle.


First try cleaning the moisture sensors with rubbing alcohol, these are two silver colored strips located inside the drier just below the lint cleanout

I'm sorry to hear of your problem with your LG dryer. I have one as well and it works very well. I found my owners manual. It has a web site WWW.LGSERVICE.com. They also have a toll free number 1-877-714-7486. Perhaps either of these will help you find an answer. Good Luck
