Question and Answers

Q:

Dryer not heating DLE7177WM Lg Dryer

A:

First, check the house circuit breakers or house fuses for the dryer. That dryer requires 240 volts to heat (2 legs of 120 volt power potential). If one of the house circuit breakers is tripped or one of the 2 house fuses for the dryer is blown, then the dryer won't heat even though the motor runs. If the house circuit breakers or fuses are okay, unplug the dryer and carefully check the voltage at the electrical outlet for the dryer if you feel comfortable conducting a live voltage check on the outlet. Have a technician or electrician conduct that test if you are unsure how to complete that voltage check on the outlet.

If the dryer is getting 240 volts, then you will need to open the dryer cabinet (with the dryer unplugged) and test the thermostats and heater using a volt/ohm meter. To open the cabinet, remove the screws from the back of the top panel. Pull the top panel off. Remove the screws from the back of the control console. Unplug the console wiring harness and remove the control console. Open the dryer door and remove the 2 screws below the opening to the dryer drum. Remove the screws at the top of the front panel (probably 4 screws). Pull the front panel off of the dryer. If you can reach the thermostats on the side of the heater box without removing the drum, then no further disassembly is necessary. If you cannot reach those thermostats, then you will need to remove the drum and possibly the exhaust air duct housing. If you remove the drum, be sure that you look at the routing of the drive belt through the idler pulley before removing the drum so that the belt can be properly routed during reassembly. Check the thermostats on the side of the heater box first. Those thermostats should measure near zero ohms of resistance. If either thermostat is "open" (measure infinite resistance) then the bad thermostat will need to be replaced. If both thermostats are okay, check the heater element in a similar manner using a volt/ohm meter. The heating element should have 3 terminals. You should measure about 10 ohms between the top 2 terminal on the heating element. You should measure about 20 ohms between the bottom 2 terminals.  If the heating element is "open" then replace the heating element.

If you are not confident that you can safely complete this testing and repair, then I recommend that you have a service technician diagnose and repair the dryer.

Hi,

Thanks for contacting ManageMyLife. I understand how frustrating it is having trouble with your appliance not working.

Ok I feel that the manual is incorrect.  Ohms law is that if you measure the two heaters in series the total is the sum of both heaters 10 + 10 = 20 ohms in this case.  Is the dryer not making heat in a timed dry cycle?  In the sensing dry cycle the moisture sensors control the board so the sensors need to be checked for cleanliness.  Dirty or faulty sensors will not allow the moisture hits to register at the board and the dry will shut down like the clothes are dry.  The sensor, which is mounted to the lint screen you can check by ohming blue to orange at the board connector NA6 the reading will be open and if you places something wet across the sensors you should be reading some resistance reading.  As wet clothes short across the sensors this produces a signal to the board to keep running.   

 NOTE:

  Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service.

Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts.

Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance. We are always here to help.

Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com.

Here is the model # & serial # of my washer & dryer: Washer Model #: WM2487HWM Washer Serial #: 706KWXD01002 Dryer Model #: DLE7177WM Dryer Serial #: 705KWTA06649 The adapter is sold by Sears Parts Direct and is not returnable. The part # is: AAA30793428. The Sears salesperson where I purchased the LG WDP4W pedestals is telling me I don't need these adpaters, but I don't want to find out in the middle of installing them that this salesperson was wrong. Thanks in advance!

Thank you for submitting your question. The pedestal that goes to your washer and dryer is model number WDP3W on the LG web site and item number 02651022000 on our Sears.com web site. It's the same item. Here is the pedestal installation manual . It appears that the pedestals will come with their own hardware and the adaptor is not needed after reading through the installation guide. I hope this information helps. Thank you for choosing Manage My Life.

I don't understand. The product that you mentioned above (02651022000) is a Kenmore correct? There is apparently an issue based on the age of my washer 2007 and earlier, which require the WDP3W. However, the salesman at the outlet store that is selling the WDP4W for a great price is telling me that I can use this newer model pedestal without an adapter whereas LG is telling me that I do need the adapter. Who is right?

A:

What I need to know is whether I need an adapter to attach the WDP4W pedestal to my washer (Washer Model #: WM2487HWM Washer Serial #: 706KWXD01002). Please help me verify this so that when I get ready to install the WDP4W pedestals, I have the right adapter on hand. Thanks!

When looking at your product information for your washer the WDP3W and WDP4W is what was listed for the pedestal. I just gave you the first one because both will work. The instructions for the WDP3W states all the hard will come with the pedestal for installation and the adapter kit is not listed as being needed. This however is LG's product, so I would go off the information LG is providing you because they are the manufacture.

Hello Fellow LG Buyers. I understand your aggravation and frustration. I have an LG DLG5932W (DRYER) AND A WM2032HW (WASHER) that I purchased in 2004. I finally decided to purchase the pedestals for them and was very excited when I got them. Then when my husband and I tried to connect the W/D to the pedestals, we realized the white connectors cannot be used to hold our W/D in place because the W/D doesn't have the holes underneath where the white connectors are supposed to slide into. After painstakingly searching the web, I finally found the answer for us. I am adding a picture of the Adaptor Kit you will need in order to hold your W/D in place to the WDP4 pedestals. I've seen the price on line for about $5.99. I am also providing a link to an LG Manual I found that will show you how the ADAPTOR KIT AAA30793428 should be attached to your W/D and pedestals. I hope the link works and I HOPE THIS IS HELPFUL !
