Is it a Bosch dryer, if it is then the belt break switch tripped:


To reset the switch unplug the dryer, remove the power cable and back cover completely. two screws holding back cover are under the top cover which is held on with two screws at the rear. Remove the screws then pull top cover back and then lift it off. Remove last two screws and take off the full back cover . On the front of the motor you should see two white wires going into the safety switch for the belt breaking. Push the button on the left to reset the switch (you probably will hear a click) Do not push the right button as that is what got tripped originally . Good Luck Tim

    No it is not a bosch Dryer it is a LG Front Load

  • Tim Whalen Mar 30, 2011

    when you press the start button does the motor hum, have you tried to run the dryer empty. The door switch may not be engaging. You may need to take the dryer apart and make sure the belt is on the pulley and motor, the motor may be bad. hope this helps Tim

Takes three cycles to dry towels, displays 45 min. turns off within 30 min. still not dry


2 possible reasons, either the towels have not been spun at a high enough speed and are too wet, or the dryer is not getting hot enough because it is not switched to a high enough heat setting or there is a partial element or thermostat or humidity sensor failure. You should spin your towels as fast as you can, 1000 MINIMUM but 1400 or more is better. Did it ever work? Is it a new drier? Is it getting hot? 45 mins is a short time anyway to dry a full load of towels.

Why does the display say"wet" when the clothes are


Try cleaning your moisture sensing strips with windex. Maybe something wet and sticky is on them

How do you get the mildew smell out of a clothes dryer?


Very unusual problem with a dryer as it gets hot and would normally evaporate moisture causing mildew!

Try the following:
  • Unplug the power point of the dryer.
  • Gently clean the interior (and exterior) with a super absorbent cloth/non-scracth sponge lighty soaked in a mild bleach soapy mixture to kill off and remove the (blackish) mildew (Nappy wash is not a bad mixture). Weat rubber gloves for protection.
  • Let the unit wet for a few minutes and then using clean warm water and sponge, remove all trace of the bleachy soap on the unit as it is corrosive. Additional drying off with disposable paper towel will help remove any trace of bleach.
  • Put a wet clean bathroom towel lightly soaking with material conditioner mixture at double the normal recommended ratio, power the dryer and dry off the towel as per normal: the fabric conditioner is also a freshner.
  • Musty milldew odour should be gone!
Hope it helps! Please let me know how you go!

GE Profile Harmony Electric Dryer - Starts out heating but then screen says SENSING


nicknames, usually with long dry times I suspect a pinched or clogged vent. Make sure you check that first. You can do a test to check the moisture sensor. The 2 sensor bars will be on the inside of the drum just below the vent cage. Press the home and then help button. Next press and hold the help and start/stop button for 3 seconds. On a dry sensor, you should see a voltage of approx 4.75 displaying. Now get a wet rag and hold them across the 2 sensor bars. You should see the voltage drop to about 1.0 volts. If it does this your sensor is ok. Check the vent and this out first and we will take it from there. Catriver.
