New dryer to me.  LG Dryer made loud pop & quit running.  Going tomorrow to examine.  Not even sure how to open it up.   Suggestions?  Patricio

<<<LG Dryer made loud pop & quit running>>>

 

**************

 

Too little information :)

 

LOUD BANG---BUT CONTROL PANEL LIGHTS WORK...

 

Broken Belt

 

Object/obstruction in Blower Housing

 

Drum Rollers worn/Tub making contact with other components

 

Tar-Like sheathing on the drum coming off---and snagged on the Motor or Heater Housing

 

 

LOUD BANG---DRYER COMPLETELY DEAD/NO ACTIVITY ALL

 

Burned/damaged Power Cord/Terminal Block

 

Obliterated Main Board (and/or Display Board)---Massive electrical surge---usually during lightning storm or failed neighborhood Power LineTransformer


To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"

Broken belt, very lint built up dryer. 

Going to replace 2 front rollers, belt, & idle pully & charge flate rate book price $218.35.

  Book price for just belt is &199.85.  not as much profit, extra $20 for the pully & 2 rollers I think is going to be little more, but as I explained to customer  New drive train & suspension parts sweeten the repair.  Plus they's gettin lint cleaning to boot.  

 

Sounds like good deal to me for customer & above & beyond great old fashion service toos me.  :thumbsup:   patricio,  thanks for the help.
