My dryer is taking 2 hours to dry. Already checked the vents and are clean. Do I need to buy a new thermostat?
Answer Hello Lili. If the dryer is heating, it is most likely an air flow issue. Check and see if the blower wheel is clogged. Also, check the duct inside the dryer.
Hi. My heater runs but produces no heat. I replaced the hi limit thermostat and thermistor with no positive results. Would the next logical step be to replace thermostat 6931EL3003D?
The thermostats would not be the issue if the heater is operating. The unit venting would need to be checked. If the heater comes on but there is no heat then there is no air movement. Check the venting from the blower wheel all the way to the outside of the home.
My drier LG DLE 1310W suddenly stopped working when moving to our new home. Had to change AC plug from 4- to 3- model but should be correctly installed.
The drier turns on and works, except it does not heat. Have checked exhaust (was ok).
What next? How do I check thermostat / fuse etc?
The first thing that you will want to do is access the terminal block and make sure that you are getting 120 vac from each of the outside terminals to the center terminal. If you are loosing power to 1 of those legs then you have a power supply issue and will need to check the receptacle. To check the thermostat and fuse you would need to do a continuity test on these components. If they do not have continuity then the part is bad and would need to be replaced.
LG dryer - will not heat. Cleaned vent hoses. Were very dirty. Is there a reset button if venting was problem? when dryer is running - the cooling led lights are on.
Answer Hello Bill,
There would be a thermal fuse that you would want to check. 6323EL2001B Thermistor 6931EL3002A thermostat, if either of these parts are bad you will not have heat. You want to check continuity on them to ensure that they are not bad. If no continuity then they are bad. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
