Question about LG DLE2516 Electric Dryer
On my Dryer DLE2516W, I push the select button & all the lights come on, turn the dial to my desired setting. When I push the start button, the display goes blank and the dryer does not start. I have changed the Control panel and Display board, got the same results. With an ohm meter, I have tested the Thermal Fuse; Door Switch; the Belt Switch and the incoming power. All of those are good. I'm not sure what else I can check? Any help is much appreciated.
no problem with motor or control board. fault is with the motor capacitor only. this is often attached to the motor or near it. the value of the capacitor will be printed on it (usually about 8uf) and you should be able to source from an electrical spares shop

Check & reset breaker in breaker box.
Your problem may be you have lost one side of your voltage coming in. Light in dryer comes on but circuit to start motor is off.
Msg back if that does not work& we will go further.

I have an LG TROMM DLG and I was having the same problem. A few days ago, I had the " check filter" light come on, checked it, took exhaust hose off, and blew it out (with my leaf blower- maybe not the best tool for the job) dryer worked couple of days and then I had problem you mentioned.
My best friend engineer neighbor came over to look at it. We took top off, turned it on, wouldn't tumble, we gave the drum a push with our hands, it started, we repeated that a coupel of times and now it's working, Seems like belt is fine, motor is ok- maybe something got caught in rollers, Hopefully fixed for good now.
