Dryer turns on but will not start cycle LG DLE7177WM

4 posts in this topic

Great website! LG Tromm electric dryer model DLE7177WM. We have had the dryer since new and has worked very well. The check filter light comes on and blinks, you can set the drying cycle but when you hit start, you hear two clicks come from the top left side of the dryer. I cleaned out the lint screen and lint bay. There was a lot of stuff in there. I cleaned the two sensors in the lint screen housing. Still no start. Please tell me that there is something else I can check and do not need to replace the motor.

Thank You,

Kyle

The click is from the motor relay on the Main PCB.  Have you checked the drive belt?  If the belt is broken the belt switch will trip.  Easy enough to check by removing the screws from the rear of the top panel, push the top panel back a couple of inches and remove.  The belt should be visible and tightly secured around the drum.
