Ok, i had someone hook up my dryer and it was done incorrectly. when i put the dryer in use, it made a really loud noise, so i immediately turned it off. soon after, a burning smell started to arise, and shortly after the dryer was disconnected by the power cord, it made a pretty obvious popping noise. i rearranged the wires correctly and reconnected the power cord, but at that point it wouldn't even turn on. it smells like burned wire, so i think i busted a circuit or something. with that part, im unsure. i just want to know what i need to do to fix the problem or if i need professional help, or a new dryer. i have an LG model # DLE2532W. any help you can offer me will be greatly appreciated.

Re: my dryer went "pop"
It could be your mains filter it is situated next to your motor if that has gone it wont work you can usually get one off another dryer doesnt have to be same make but it has to have same numbering on it but most are the same mate if this does work you might find burnt wiring at the inside front of your machine which leads to your door catch if that wiring is burnt out just replace wiring and it should work fine mate let me know what you find and ill try and suggest what you can do

Depends on what went pop. What color was the smoke? If it was white and the engine was hot you may be lucky and just have blown a radiator hose. If the smoke was black or blue that would be more in line with an oil leak which may still not be the end of your car. You need to have someone look under the hook and determine where the pop sound came from.
What kind of loud noise?? A loud electrical noise?? A loud squealing noise??
It's possible that there is a foreign matter inside the filter chamber jamming up the blower fan. Pull the filter screen out and look down the filter chamber area and see if there is a sock jamming the fan from turning. If you can pull it out, that should resolve your problem. If not, you may need to call a qualified LG technician to resolve this issue.
I just had this same problem over the weekend. Is your TV hooked up via HDMI?? Mine was and i've been having problems with the tv image shrinking whenever i turn on the tv, so i would have to change the channel 1 or 2 times for the image to come up normally. On Saturday I went to change the channel and then all of a sudden I hearld this loud pop and when the image came on it was just a sky blue screen, I couldnt see anything, but I could hear the channel. So I disconnected the HDMI and hooked up the tv with component cables I had and now it works fine. I ordered a new HDMI cable just to see if it will work again. If not, i'm calling Olevia.
