LG Dryers - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

Wash your filter with dish liquid and hot water. The oil in dryer sheets and fabric softener blocks the mesh.

Also check the outside vent is operating correctly and is not blocked.

Whereas is says 'clean filter', the error message is triggered through lack of airflow.

Turn breaker off. Then try again, this might reset controller.

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.

My dryer just started making this noise. So I opened the back up to try to figure out what it might be, and when I opened it I saw something. It was part of the belt that drives the dryer. There are grooves vulcanized to the belt, and a small section of grooves or cogs I think is what they are called had come apart from the belt and what laying there on the floor of the dryer. But I ran it and timed the thumps in my head to get it to stop right on the "thump". Sure enough there was a small 1/2'' appx. of belt Cog missing, so the "thump" came from when the belt came around to the motor and the pulley hit a divit in the belt, "thump". So needless to say I need to replace the belt soon before it breaks completely. I figure that it looks like someone may benefit from knowing what the noise is. Now its off to find the proper belt and look up how to change those things...Good luck to those reading this.

Try washing your lint filter with dish liquid, and water and give it a gentle brush. It has been identified that dryer sheets cause a waxy build up which restricts air flow.

You posted in 2013, I just bought my in 2019 and it still sounds like a chug chug train. Annoying but sir Topham Hatt may have a fix one day.

yes it is possible that element is bad, before I started throwing parts at it would check hi limit disc. Also if you have 3 wire a 240 will read 240 between the hot wire and from neutral or ground 120. 120 will measure 120 between neutral.

If the child lock is on, the selector will do nothing.
press and hold it for 3 seconds or so and it'll unlock.
Hope this is your problem.
Best to you.
