Question about LG DLE2532W Electric Dryer

1 Answer

No heat here either

Our LG was running, but didn't heat either. So I checked the vent and found bird eggs in there. We then got a man to come to clean the whole dryer vent (he picked out a birds nest).

We then called an appliance repair service. He came, checked (smelled)everything and told us, that the control board needs to be replaced. This would cost $420 plus labor. Him just looking and smelling the dryer cost us $90.

My question: Is he ripping us off?

Thank you for your time.

It appears so. Plugged dryer vent should not cause a problem with control board. Good service tech should be able to use a cordless drill powered brush to clean entire length of vent, providing the vent is not the flex plastic ****. A simple clamp on amp meter test would confirm the dryer element (electric model) to be working. I'd advise you to turn your dryer on and see if you have a strong flow of air out of the outside dryer vent cap. (outside the house, where the bird nest was) Sounds like you could possibly use a new dryer vent cap, with a bird screen cover and a large 4 inch flap. (not the low profile 2 inch flap)

Egg Bound Parakeet


You want to keep her warm and in a very humid environment; we get a water soaked hot towel, put it in a clean bucket put the bird on top of the towel and then cover the bucket with another towel. while she is resting in the bucket go to the kitchen and get some apple sauce (hope you have some) get some olive oil or, mineral oil even, Vaseline will do.........heat you towel up again and let her sit another 5 minutes. Now get a q-tip and saturate it with your lube; you may want a helper for the next step.....gently restrain the bird in your hand abdomen down and out; have your helper feel between the pelvis bone to see if the egg is broken or not and where it is. Now gently use your q-tip with ky jelly or whatever on the tip and GENTLY lubricate the birds vent. Now gently use your middle finger and help the egg out by pushing gently in and down on the outside of her abdomen. Small movements is the key and did I mention be gentle. You are just massaging the egg out don't push too hard or you will hurt the bird and break the egg.........if the egg breaks just keep massaging her abdomen until it looks like everything is out. if you have a small syringe and a surgical tube you can evacuate the abdomen with sterile water.
Give the bird some applesauce if you know how; it will help her get cleaned out. Make sure she stays warm and has plenty of water. Keep calcium in her cage to help harden the next set of eggs. Good luck.

I very recently-9/28/13- purchased an LG clothes dryer-model #DLE487OW. A breaker was kicked and since the electrity was restored, I am getting a check filter message with cool air only blowing in dryer. ...


Call LG people before you call the service man.
Really, you have no heat. Check out the heating circuit...heater, t/stats; vent. etc. Something is sensing that the filter is blocked when it is not....check air flow.
I doubt the board is a problem at this point.

Where in my home should I not hang my bird cage?


You should avoid hanging your bird cage in any of the following areas:


In an area where there are drafts

In the kitchen

Anywhere where direct sunlight will shine on the cage

In front of an air conditioning unit/heating vent


Bird cage placement is an extremely important part of your birds life and health. I have found a great video on bird cage placement within a home. I suggest checking it out.

My vent is making alot of noise.I didn't install it, but I read that theres a plug on the motor that causes this. is this true?


If it's your vent that is making the noise and the dryer itself is fine? the noise probably from a foreign object that was brought into the vent by a rodent/bird and ya need to clean/have the vent cleaned

Dryer doesn't heat


I'll take a stab at this and hope I can help ! It could very well be your vent .. After three years of venting gases from drying, it is possible and quite probable that your vent may be restricting airflow from lint/other byproducts of drying. A quick check might be to run a separate vent ( temporary ) in place of your existing one to see if that solves the problem. I assume your dryer is Gas and not electric from the G in the DLG id. If it was electric, then you could vent it in the room for a quick check but since it is gas, I would discourage that. Check the flapper on the end of your vent too to make sure it is opening up when you dry clothes.. the screens on them prevent birds etc from going inside your duct work but they also make a nice place for lint to build up and restrict the air flow. Hope that helps !

LG Dryer 5977 will not dry


If one of the two thermal fuses are blown you will not get heat.  Thermal fuses blow (and are not resetable, they must be replaced) when the machine gets too hot.  Often this is caused by not enough air flow through the machine.  Check and make sure your exhaust vent is not clogged.  Clean it the best you can to get all the lint, dead mice, bird nests, etc. out.  Also make sure air is blowing out of the machine when it is turned on.  If not you have a blower problem.
