Question about LG DLE2301 Electric Dryer

Open Question

The flow sense display comes on with 4 bars (full) during the drying cycle and our clothing is not drying. I cleaned out the lint basket area and the tube running from the inside of the dryer out to the wall (not very dirty). This did not solve the problem so I ran the flow sense cycle without the vent tube hooked up to the wall and still the same problem, full 4 bars on the flow sense display. Not sure what else to do?

HI,

Clean the lint screen/filter before or after drying each load of clothes. If clothing is still damp at the end of a typical drying cycle or drying requires longer times than normal, this may be a sign that the lint screen or the exhaust duct is blocked.

Please don't forget to rate or accept the solution.

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.

Have you checked your outside vent while it was running to see if the dryer was venting 100%. If your clothes are hot and humid I would say clean your vent pipe has a blockage and needs to be cleaned out. Also as far as the burning smell you could take the front off (unplug first) the dryer of by removing 4 screws one above and one below the latch and two at the bottom and there are two clips one at the top left and right push in with a puddy knife and lift the top up a couple inches and lift the front up off the bottom holders. Then you will have access to vacuuming the lint that is floating around the burner.

Dryer won't dry have to do it twice


first check to make sure the lint basket is clean and free of lint, then lift it out and if possible reach in with a vaccum extention or tongs and see if there is a build up of lint in the front of the dryer, below the screen. that maybe blocking the flow of air, I cleaned one out for a friend, he had just started renting the apartment and the washer and dryer were there, but I do not think anyone ever checked below the basket. I am sure they were one dryer load away from a fire and he was living in a older row house. I ended up taking a have a grocery bag full of lint out of the front of the dryer, it was just packed in from years of use. but if there is not good air flow through the dryer the cloths will not dry.
2. also you can put a dry towel in the load and it will pull moisture out of the really wet clothes and they should dry quicker.
3. make sure your washer is working right and the spinner is taking all the extra water out, if they come out of the washer wetter it will take longer to dry them.
hope some of this helps K

Whirlpool gas dryer (WGD9450WR1) not drying on auto-cycles


try cleaning the 2 silver senser bars located inside the dryer drum on the door side with isopropyl alcohol and lint free wipes,these bars sense moisture and control timer speed,and when they get coated with the chemicals in dryer sheets they become coated and can no longer sense the damp clothes (these sensers use capacitance to sense moisture)

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.

Clothes not dry


check your dryer venting from the machine to the outside vent,if they are plugged it will not dry properly,then make sure you have good air flow to vent on machine,if not dismantle and clean lint from inside machine,these are inexpensive fixes,then it could be a cycling switch or the humidity sensor bar that needs replace

Wont dry clothes is hot inside dryer but takes 3 or 4 cycles to dry load


You have an air flow problem. This usually happens when the exhaust pipe/vent gets clogged. Clean/inspect the vent outlet, the pipe, the inlet, and the filter/lint catcher area.

Improper air flow prevents the moisture from being vented out of the dryer.

AD is auto dry you may need to clean the sensor or you may have a fauilty one ...Auto Dry Loads dried using the Towels, Heavy Duty, Normal, Perm Press, and Delicates cycles will dry automatically at the selected temperature to the desired dryness level. The dryer uses sensing bars to sense the moisture level of the load as it tumbles through heated air. Auto Dry cycles save time and energy and protect fabrics. The estimated drying time will be displayed for about 5 minutes, then the outside of the display will light up in a circular track to indicate the drying time is automatically being determined by the sensors. When the load has reached the selected dryness level, it will continue to tumble, unheated, during a Cool Down period. This helps reduce wrinkling and makes items easier to handle during unloading. The estimated Cool Down time will be displayed. Drying time varies depending on size and dampness of load and fabric type. If the load is too small or almost dry, the sensing bars may not detect enough moisture to continue the cycle and the cycle may end after a few minutes. Select a Timed Dry setting to dry such loads. Room temperature and humidity, type of installation and electrical voltage or gas pressure can also affect drying time. For cycle selection turn the knob on the front of the dryer control panel. The light will illuminate next to the cycle selected. The following is a brief description for what cycles should be chosen for certain items and materials to be dried.

"cooling" display won't turn off causing heating problems.


Try cleaning off the two curved metal bars (about 4 inches long) on the inside near the lint filter. They are what senses the moisture on automatic dry. When you use fabric softener sheets, the stuff from the fabric softener sheets can coat the bars, which makes the dryer think the clothes are already dry, and puts the dryer into cool down. (using time dry will also take the moisture sensor out of the cycle, if you'd like) This should be a Fix-Ya for your problem.
