LG Dryers - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


there are 3 things i find on lg dryers that can cause that. one, main control board would be worse case relay on ctrl board may be stuck causing clicking noise. 2nd, you could have a broken/slipped off belt. test for that would be turning the drum by the fins inside drum without any clothes. It should have a little bit of force to turn. if it spins rather easy. you probably have a broken belt. 3rd lastly, there is a re settable thermostat inside dryer if it pops is cause the dryer not to run.

SOUNDS LIKE A BAD MOTOR CENTRIFUGAL SWITCH. USUALLY WILL RUN ONE LOAD AND THEN TURN OFF AND A HOUR HOUR LATER IT WILL WORK AGAIN UNTIL IT OVER HEATS AGAI.N

ALSO CHECK FOR BROKEN OR SHORTED HEATING ELEMENT
DRYER OVERHEATING:

Heating Element
A defective heating element can make a dryer too hot or not heat at all. . If the element partially shorts out, it can produce heat all the time, regardless of whether the dryer is calling for heat. Remove the heating element to inspect it. The coils should not be touching each other or anything else.

Other Causes and Conditions
Air Flow Problem
Dryers need good ventilation to work properly. If the vent is clogged it can make the dryer too hot. Clean all of the vent tubing thoroughly.

Cycling Thermostat
Although not common, a defective cycling thermostat can make the dryer too hot. The cycling thermostat is supposed to turn on and off the heat to maintain the proper temperature. If the thermostat is defective it may keep the heat on too long. The thermostat is not adjustable or repairable, it must be replaced.

HI LIMIT THERMOSTAT DEFECTIVE? SHOULD SHOW OHMS AT ROOM TEMPERATURE


Felt Seal
Most dryers have a felt seal at the front and rear of the drum to keep the heat inside the drum. If the felt seal is worn away or missing, the dryer may keep heating and make the dryer too hot. This is not common.

Blower Wheel
A defective blower wheel will not spin properly and will not vent the hot air, making the dryer too hot. Check to see if there is adequate airflow out of the dryer.

My b issue is the door trigger. Before you go to crazy, keep the door open and press the ltrigger latch for the door. If you're lucky it will stop the cycle.

Your dryer doesn't have a condenser. So what is your issue?

Take top off. Take control panel off. Take front off. Take front drum assembly off. Remove drum. Check all thermistors etc.

Check if both legs of your 220 volt outlet are hot. Check the power cord at the dryer-carefully.
