Q:

I have a LG electric dryer, M#DLE7177RM, S#704KWY03271. How do you get the front panel off so I can replace the heater element & clean out all the lint?

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

To access the heater and to clean under the drum will require removing the top, control panel and front panel. I added an image below with the instructions; however you will not need to disassemble the control panel as directed in steps 4, 5 and six under the Control Panel section. Wearing protective gloves is recommended to prevent cuts NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing your dryer.

Q:

dryer not heating

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The heating element requires 220-230 volts in order to heat. The first thing to check is the breaker box for a tripped breaker. Locate the two (2) house circuit breakers dedicated for the dryer and reset both circuit breakers. Flip both circuit breakers off and on 2-3 times and then see if the dryer will heat. If it does not heat, the voltage supply should be measured and verified before any further diagnostic steps are taken. NOTE: I do not recommend measuring the voltage supply unless you have experience and feel safe and confident in doing so; otherwise I suggest calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer.

If the dryer is getting the proper voltage supply of 220-230 volts, the failure could be one of many different components.

There are several components connected in a series circuit with the heating element which can fail open and prevent the heater from operating:

  • High limit thermostat
  • Safety thermostat
  • Motor centrifugal switch
  • Electronic control board
The high limit and the safety thermostats can be disconnected and tested for continuity with an Ohm meter. I added three images below to reference. If the images are too small, I will add a second reply and those images will open larger.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

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 .
