Question and Answers


door switch plug release on lg dryer


Hi Larry,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

There is a tab (see image below) on the switch that you will need to pry with a flat blade screwdriver.

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; Sears Home Services .

Here is a link that you may use to view the parts list diagram or purchase any parts needed for your appliance; Sears Parts Direct .

I hope this is helpful. Check the things I have covered here and if I may be of further assistance please reply to this post.

Dryer not heating DLE7177WM Lg Dryer


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.

If you need more help, let us know.

Thanks for choosing Sears PartsDirect.
