Question and Answers

Q:

code meaning DLE5955G Lg Dryer electric/gas

Q:

DRYER SHUTS OFF.

A:

I know that it can be very frustrating to have issues with your dryer. The symptom you describe sounds like the motor is getting too hot and shutting off by the thermal overload protector inside the motor. Once the motor cools down enough for the thermal overload to reset the motor will run again. However, if this is not the case then you will need to check the connections on the motor. The image below will provide the information for this. If you are getting an infinity reading, then the motor will need to be replace. If you don't feel comfortable doing this yourself, please click on the link to schedule service: Sears Home Services. Click on "Get Started" and follow the directions, click on the red "NEXT" button to continue. I hope this helps. Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance. We are always here to help. Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com.

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

The first thing I recommend checking is power to the main control. I have included the testing information, wiring diagram, and disassembly instructions in the images below. Working with live electrical current can be very hazardous and possibly deadly. Testing voltage output requires working with electrical current. Do not attempt this measurement without the proper tools and safeguards. If you are not sure you can make these checks safely, please refer this work to a service tech.

Next you will need to ensure that the wiring and connections between the main control and the display are connected securely. The service manual does not give voltage checks between the main control and the display, but I would assume it is DC voltage between 5 and 16 VDC.

If you have 120VAC to the main and the wiring is good to the display, check the door lock assembly. You have already replaced the fuses, so at this point if the door lock is good, I recommend replacing the display board.

the motor relay might have bad contacts and is reducing the voltage to the motor. The problem could be in the motor or a bad connection at the belt switch.

I would make an insulated jumper wire, disconnect the power to the dryer, and remove the 2 blue wires from the motor relay. Jump the 2 wires together and if the motor runs ok, the motor relay is the problem.

If there is still a problem, you will need to check the voltage to the motor If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website; www.SearsHomeServices.com

AT TIMES I MAY HAVE TO EITHER UNPLUG OR TRIP THE BREAKER AND RESET IT BEFORE THE DRYER TURN ON AGAIN. THE BREAKER IS NOT TRIPPED. DO YOU STILL THINK ITS THE MOTOR? THANKS FOR THE HELP.

Thank you for your response. Definetly, the motor needs to be checked. If it is the thermal overload protector inside the motor, replace the motor. Thank you again for choosing Manage My life.
