Question about LG DLE2532W Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Replacing saftey thermostat monthly

I have a DLE0322 dryer. (i know it's not the same as above, but close enough). I know electronics enough to get in there and test components. When we first got the dryer (4 years ago) it had a thermostat issue that a repairman fixed. Fast forward to 6 months ago, and we hadn't had another issue untill it just quit working. I opened up the dryer only to find a charred wire. The wire was on a white resistor looking item. Yellow wire. I repaired it, and the dryer worked fine.

Then about a month later it quit again, i checked everything and found TH2 (safety thermostat) had gone bad, and replaced it. A month later, same thing. Now it's turning into almost every month like clock work i'm replacing this TH2 therm. It's not an expensive part, but shipping is always horrid on these parts. And 20 bucks a month is starting to add up. What could be my issue? We do a lot of laundry in this house, but this is too much.

Thanks for your help

Clean dryer vent to improve airflow so dryer will not cycle on high limit thermostat. The best way is to use a cordless drill vent cleaner designed to clean dryer vents. Manual brushes are also available, or you can disassemble, clean, and reassemble vent. (if so, use the foil tape when reassembling) Make sure you are not using flex dryer venting. This should also improve dryer performance, reducing dry time.

LG Dryer not heating at all. DLG4802W gas dryer. Already replaced two thermostats Thermostat 6931EL3003C and Thermostat Assembly 6931EL3004B and still not heating. Only 18 months old.

Check your igniter, if that does not get hot enough it will not open the gas valve. If it does not glow at all check for voltage if voltage is present 120vdc replace igniter.

My electric dryer has no heat.

You probably have a bad thermostat or burned out heating elements. Once in a while the problem is a broken or burned-out wire terminal in the heater circuit. To track down the problem, you'll need to use an ohmmeter or other continuity tester. You can find a circuit diagram inside the control panel; this will identify the wires by color so you know which ones go to the two heater elements and thermostats.

Note: two-terminal dryer thermostats are supposed to be closed (less than 0.1 ohms resistance) when cold and open above the trip point temperature. You can test the trip point by heating the thermostat in an electric skillet with known good dial calibration - just be careful not to burn the insulation on your meter's test leads on the skillet. Three terminal thermostats are rare, but they would have one contact open and one closed to a common terminal; the open/close order reverses at the trip point.

there is a saftey relay that might be bad and needs replacing.. this is there for keeping dryer from starting a fire or over heateng.. when the dryer start heating the saftey switch is on and once it stops heating the switch is open and and will not dry.. it could be a heating element once it gets hot it expands and will not heat..

I have no flame to the heater, but the blower works when I turn the thermostat on.

typical ign. sequence call from thermostat, venter starts proves airflow, hot surface ign, or whatever type you have flame rod senses spark or hsi once proven if all safteys are closed you should get gas valve opening gas on check these one or more isn't happening.

i have replaced TH2 in my dle0322 about 6 times now. It never lasts more than a month. What could be causing this?

I don't know what you mean when you ask about fuses since a blown fuse would stop power to the dryer, but I do know a common reason for a dryer to run and not produce sufficient heat is that it may be cycling on the "safety" thermostat. One common reason for this is that the "cycling" thermostat (which is the thermostat which the dryer should cycle on), located in the exaust air stream, is insulated with collected lint, which also lowers the air flow through the ducts. You may just need to thoroughly clean the accumulated lint. I would suggest buying the service manual for your dryer, if available, and go to the manuals troubleshooting guide.
A test for cycling on the safety thermostat is to run the dryer with a damp load and watch the flame through the small service door at the bottom of the dryer; if the flame stars cycling on and off every, say 15 to 30 seconds, then the dryer is cycling on the saftey thermostat, if the flame repeatedly burns for close to a minute or longer, than that is not the problem.
