lg dryer dle3733w no power
« on: September 19, 2014, 08:21:02 AM »
Hello our lg dle3733w dryer seems to be acting very strange. Runs fine no issues occasionally, after the load finishes we are left with a totally dead dryer. We pull the main cartridge type fuses from the panel and reinsert . The dryer resets most of the time.Vent is very short and clean. I have checked the power at the outlet 120,120, aprox 245...
I have found the manual and performed diagnostic test electrical control/temperature sensor test. The code displaying shows 1u:01 18:e8.. Not sure what this means? I do see 18:e8 mentioned in the manual on control layout as 7 seg display electric dryer. Would my next steps be to perform test 1 electrical inside the dryer. If so time pull the beast out:(
Thanks

How long does it take to dry a load of laundry (usually 30 minutes for lighter fabrics and 50-60 minutes for thick fabrics)?
The Drive Motor has a built in fan when running and it could be overheating due to lint build up around the motor housing (unplug dryer first then remove drum to access the drive motor)

Thanks for the info its very strange but I was doing other work in the basement and saw the dryer complete the cycle with no issues. The next time we went to use it, it was dead again. I rechecked the outlet when it was dead and I have a power issue. Its very strange that pulling the fuse block seems to correct the power at the outlet. Sometimes we have to pull the fuses a couple of times. The fuses are very old so I will start there , then replace the outlet if necessary. Thanks again.

Well it was a fuse. One of them looked like it was thirty years and the copper end cap was loose. So I replaced both. Hopefully all will be will. :thanks:
