#276471 LG DLGx2651 Gas Steam Dryer burner cycling problems

Posted by desgnconcpts on 05 December 2013 - 02:44 PM

I'd like to post a quick follow up -- the Whirpools were delivered and installed today.  Hope to run a load of clothes tonight/tomorrow to know for sure -- but I can say this -- the Whirlpool dryer operates totally UNLIKE the LG.


Upon install and start-up, the burner lit up and stayed lit for well over 45 seconds.  To refresh readers, the LG lit up for 3 seconds and turned off.  I really think this is due to the blower motor in the Whirlpool being much more powerful, it IS able to move the air much better.  After letting the dryer run for 5 minutes, when I opened the door to the dryer, you could feel the heat.  This behavior is just like my dryer at home (which is located right next to the exterior wall and has about a 2 ft run max).  Plenty of heat which would dry the clothes.


I'm very hopeful that when we put a load of laundry in -- the clothes will dry in a reasonable amount of time -- and not be left wet as was the case with the non-heating, overly sensitive and ineffective at moving air LG dryer.  Maybe something to be said about being designed and built in the USA?!
