I'm guessing the drive belt is incorrectly installed. It needs to hold the tightening pulley at tension. The belt goes down from left of drum to clockwise around the pulley them around the drive motor. Push up on pulley to install. Answer if you need more info. Only way to do this is to take it all apart again. You may be able to leave the fron roller assembly on to reach around it. Good luck.

    I ordered a new belt and i called a repair guy to come install the new belt and see if with him putting back the belt the right way might fix the problem and it did not it still does the same,the dryer lights turn on but when i press the play/pause button it wont start spinning

    Well if it all worked before then the only issues I could see is: 1. The belt to engage the motor trip switch, 2. The control board connectors not full engaged, 3. The door switch not plugged back in fully. Good luck.

    By the way, is the interior light on when you try to start dryer?

  • Ruben Ruiz Mar 22, 2019

    Yes sir the interior light stays on when i try to start the dryer

  • robert Mar 22, 2019

    Then the door switch is not closed. Try putting something on the door or the button of the switch so it pushes in more. Otherwise The switch is bad or not plugged in.

  • robert Mar 24, 2019

    Did you get it running.

  • Ruben Ruiz Mar 24, 2019

You probably never noticed it before. This is normal.

SOURCE: Dryer won't work, Check Filter light is on

I had exactly the same problem with my newish LG dryer. I deduced that the dryer's computer essentially needed to be rebooted. I pulled the plug for a minute or so, then plugged it back in. It works perfectly now.

SOURCE: start button doesnt start the dryer

Sure sounds like a door switch to me. Is anyone slamming the dryer door? Was there a rubber bumper on the door that is now gone?

SOURCE: lg tromm dryer electric cooling light staying on

I called LG after seeing this light as well and they say it's supposed to stay on and should "blink" at the end of the cycle. I've never remembered this light staying on in all the years of owning this machine but she (LG rep) said it was normal. Otherwise, if you've checked everything and it's not drying clothes, you may need to have your dryer serviced. :(

Lg tromm dryer


You need to replace the bell, also check those roller underneath of the drum are freely turn. It is quite hard to take off the front door of LG dryer, if you not a handy person, call for service. If you want to try let me know, I will guide you to open it.

Dryer struggling to turn and making noise.


first off send the brand name and model number off of the dryer open the door and look around the opening where you put the clothes in and you'll see the model number.there is only one belt,you could have a bad roller,or a bad belt pulley or something in the blower wheel from running the dryer with the lint filter out,something can go down where the filter goes and get into the blower but the only way to tell is by getting in there,if you need help send info or go on utube and put in your model and brand name,there's tons of videos out there on taking apart dryers.

I have an LG dryer Model # ddle7177rm/dlg7188rm.when we start the dryer it starts to heat then stops and it blows cool air. the ducts are all clean.


Hello

As everything in your dryer is working fine apart from it heating properly so the recommended repair will be thermal fuse/thermostat replacement. However, you can also test its continuity before replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Cracked drum lg tromm dle2512w dryer. is it worth replacing? dryer is about 3 yrs old


I'd say yes, especially if you replace it yourself to avoid a service call. Top needs to come off (screws at back, then push top back 2 inches and lift off), remove front, remove 4 screws holding front bulk head / front rollers, slip belt off tension pulley, remove drum, reverse to install.

Lg dlg 7188rm gas dryer will not heat


Check to make sure that the thermal fuse is not blown. Small plastic piece with 2 wires coming off of it. Typically this is problem.

I have a front loader LG Tromm dryer that has a crack in the drum. Can this be self repaired anad if so how? Thanks


I HAVE REPLACED SEVERAL OF THEM. THE ROLLERS CAN GO BAD AND THE TUB IS SUPER THIN. IT USEUALLY CRACKES AT THE WELD IN THE BACK. THERE MAY BE A RECALL ON THAT BY NOW. THE LG COMPANY MIGHT SEND YOU A NEW TUB AND ROLLERS IF YOU COMPLAIN TO THEM ENOUGH. UNTIL THEN ALUMINUM TAPE IS A TEMPORARY REPAIR

There are 4 screws holding on a plate on the back. It is not the whole panel. Are you trying to get at the ball sensor?
