Dryer starts and heats appropriately. Lint trap is clean.
Dryer will not honor time specified. E.g., dryer is set to run for 40 minutes. After operating for several minutes with display correctly reflecting the amount of time requested and then remaining, abruptly display will jump dramatically reducing the amount of time left. Say, after running only five. Unites of the 40 minutes, suddenly machine's display indicates only 3 minutes left. Three minutes later machine shuts off. Clothes are not fully dry.
Is there a part that controls only the manual timer? Other ideas, please?
Answer Rafael, The model number you supplied is incorrect or incomplete but, the flame sensor 6501EL3001A controls the ignition and heat, it doesn't control the dryer run time or dryness of the clothes. The moisture sensor bars 6500EL3001A determine when the dryer will shut off, based on the dryness of the clothes, You'll need to check the bars to make sure the bars haven't been accidentally removed, or damaged and the wires are attached to the terminals. The sensor bars are located on the front bulkhead inside the dryer drum just below the filter, in the grid area. If the sensor bars are damaged or missing the control will "think" the load is dry, and will run for a few minutes and then turn off.
Can not turn it on. But when you open the door the lits up and shuts when close it. Reseted it didnt work
Answer Hello Henzel. If the display does not work any, but the inside light does when the door is open, you will need to test for power to the display PCB EBR59476301. If there is not power there, then you will need to replace the PCB main EBR36858816. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. Hope this helps. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
What does this senor assembly do #AP4443773?
Answer Hello Ed. The sensor assembly 6501EL3001A is used to detect the flame when it lights inside the dryer. Hope this helps.
It's not heating and so far I've only been able to tell that the igniter is broken. What else could be the problem? Does this model have a coil and where is it located?
Answer Zack, A broken igniter will keep the dryer from heating, and could be the whole issue 5318EL3001A If you have a multimeter, you can check the radiant/flame sensor for a "closed" circuit at room Temp. If these two components are OK, then you will need to replace the gas valve assembly 5221EL2002A . The "coils" are not yet available as a repair option. Thanks and Good Luck
LG dryer, gas flame comes on and then goes out within ten seconds.This happens on all settings including manual speed dry.. thank you
Answer Richard, The first thing you want to do, is disconnect the exhaust vent pipe from the back of the dryer, clean out the lint filter and run the dryer with the vent off to verify the venting is not clogged with lint or kinked and restricting the exhaust air flow and causing the Hi Limit safety switch to open. Good Luck.
