Question about LG Dryers

Open Question

I have a 2007 LG TROMM model # DLE3777W. It will not heat now. I checked the heating element and it tests good. There is a light in the instrument panel that says "cooling". How do I troubleshoot the light? Thanks!

SOURCE: lg tromm dryer electric cooling light staying on

I started researching on here because I was having the same problems with my LG dryer. (It also happens to be the same model.) I discovered the vent hose was kinked.

With the lights, the cycle it's on that blinks. When your dryer gets to the last 5 minutes, the "Cooling" light will blink and the "Drying" light will go off. If you have the "Wrinkle" setting on after the 5 minute cooling cycle, the wrinkle cycle will start and circular lights will show where the minutes normally are displayed and the Wrinkle light will blink.

I have a LG Tromm dle0442w doesn't heat blow out cold air

It is caused by three possible candidates:

(1) The thermal fuse
(2) Heating element
(3) High limit thermostat.

Have these devices checked out and replace the faulty part.

The start button is a momentary start button. It energizes a relay type switch to keep power on. Try holding the start button in for awhile and do not let go. If the machine keeps running, then for sure, the relay type switch is defective and needs to be replaced with a new one.

Dyer will not heat

Sounds like an open heating element issue. If you have two sensors for internal temps, the chances of both going bad at same time are remote.
Locate the element wiring and disconnect from circuit and do a simple continuity test. Chances are that it is burnt out or open.

TE code wm2688hnm

proceed with common sense and logically, fix it use the Vom or DVOM .God bless you

For this error code you need to check both the water heater or element and thermistor, basically the washing machine is reporting a fault on the heating circuit with this fault code but it is not capable of identifying exactly where the fault actually lies.
On non-display panel models this fault code is denoted by the lights for 95, 60, 40 and cold being lit or flashing.

  • Check water heating element
  • Check heater for contunuity,
  • Check steam heater for continuity usually
  • Check thermistor or temperature sensor
  • Check the thermistor resistance,
  • Check wiring to water heating element
  • Check connections to water heating element and temperature sensor

My dryer will only work for like 3 minutes and then it kicks out the breaker. It is an lg tromm dle3777w. It has worked fine for about 4 years. Used it for a load already today and it worked fine. ...

Hi - there is a fault with the heating circuit, most likely either a bad connection on the elements or elsewhere on the wiring. The only other problem would be the actual heater element, although doubtful as it would normally pop the circuit breaker instantly if this was the case.

Although i'm not familiar with this particular model all dryers operate the same way, when on air dry there is usually no heating involved, it will work ok.

If you can handle the repairs yourself otherwise get an electrician or appliance serviceman to help you out.

I have a LG Tromm model DLE5932W dryer. I used the delicate setting yesterday and after that the clothes stop drying. There is no heat. I checked the lint trap and the vent and neither is clogged

One of 3 things to check. Make sure that the double circuit breaker hasn't tripped, check the power cord connection at the junction connection behind the dryer and check to see if the high limit switch hasn't tripped. The high limit switch is located inside the dryer on the side of the heating element.
Good luck

LG Tromm Dryer will not get hot. It is about two years old. I have no flow sense indicator bars and no type of blockage. The model # is DLE5955W The S/N is 708KWDJ04154. Any help will be great. ...

Usually the heater element needs to be replaced. Since your is just 2 years old, you may want to take off the back panel and turn it on to see if the blower is working. IT the heater is on but the blower is not working then you have no heat. Don't confuse the blower assembly with the moter to turns the drum, since they are 2 different entities. If the blower is on then your heater element is the culprit. Good Luck.
