LG Dryer DLEX8000W, suddenly, no heat.
It's just out of warranty, of course.
A few weeks ago the wife noticed the check filter light was on, but there were no other symptoms. I checked the duct work, and it was okay. (It's a bit of a long run, so we've had to clean it out more than once.)
Yesterday, son complained that clothes were not drying. I found the duct was disconnected from the dryer, ran a load, and found the air coming out is cold. The check filter light is on. Might have been all this time - folks here don't notice things like that, or if noticed, don't always report them to me. They aren't really good about keeping the lint trap clean, either, though I preach on it constantly.
I'm thinking (hoping?) it may just be clogged up with lint internally, so a sensor is not allowing the heat to come on.
Trying to do some basic disassembly, and getting nowhere. This thing is built like no other dryer I've ever encountered. So far, it seems very well built, but very different.
Does anyone have a service manual for the thing? Or can you tell me how to do a basic disassembly?
Any other input or advice? Any known issues that I should know about?
