LG DLG2524 Gas Dryer; heats but doesn't get hot

16 March 2015 - 11:32 AM

LG Tromm Gas Dryer, Model DLG2524


Even on the high temperature setting, dryer never gets truly hot. Just kinda warm.


The dryer fires then the "drying" LED  lights. However the "cooling" LED is always on as well. (constant throughout cycle.)


I saw a reference to sensors on an LG gas dryer being reset-able, but didn't see specific directions for this model.


Just a month or so ago, we installed a Lambro dryer vent inclosure. (This one: http://amzn.com/B000BOB1FI )

The flapper-style dryer vent we had was letting in a ton of cold air. Could this be part of the problem? In hindsight, perhaps the not heating fully problem started only after installation of the new vent.





LG Washer with the dreaded LE error code

29 November 2013 - 08:11 PM



I've read about this problem and I realize I may just need to get the rotor position sensor and replace it, but I wanted to run this scenario by you.


This machine had a broken door hinge that I just replaced. I had to take the top and front covers off because I dropped a vital part down inside the housing while attempting to replace the hinge from the outside. (Doh)


Everything seemed to go well during this repair, however now that it's back together and I try to run it, I get the dreaded LE error code. I have never gotten it before.  I unplugged, replugged and tried again. The drum spins with no rubbing or funny noises.  When the machine is trying to cycle, it fills with water, but then immediately gives the LE code.  I don't hear anything unusual (as others have described) like it's trying to turn the drum and cannot.


I always use HE detergent. 


Any thoughts before I go ahead and order the rotor position sensor?




Whirlpool Dishwasher Model# GU2400XTPQ7

20 June 2011 - 07:51 AM

This dishwasher sprays water, drips water all over my kitchen floor from the door gasket area, on the right hand side only. I've checked to make sure the appliance is level and installed squarely in the hole. Now, upon your suggestion Samurai, I have checked the spray arms and they are not cracked, however there is a hole filled with crapola. I cannot easily get it un-gunked. Suggestions? Please and thank you.
