LG 24 inch ventless steam dryer question.
« on: March 17, 2011, 12:15:20 PM »
Hey, I currently have 4 dryers doing all the exact same thing. And for the life of me, I can't figure out what's going on.

The dryer runs fine for a few minutes, then intermittently it will start having sort of a rumbling noise, it lasts for a minute or so, then disappears for a few more minutes. I have taken one of them apart and back together a few times, thinking it was the blower wheel or housing, but to no avail. Then my co-worker thought it might be the motor for some reason, that didn't work either. I now have thought prehaps its dispersing the water prehaps?? And that is the reasoning for the noise, but that doesn't seem very likely because the noise level varies. I would love some help.

Model number: DLEC855R

Hopefully someone has ran into this problem as well. I would love to get these things fixed asap. I find that these 24 inch ventless dryers are frustrating to work on, more so then anything else.

I am terribly sorry if this sounds like a pretty stupid problem :P

Ok, disreguard!!!! I blame only my idiocy on this one. How stupid of me!!! I didn't even think about that there is a freakin drain pump in the thing! Ugh, that is exactly what it is.

Boy do I feel sheepish.

Thanks for the update.

That reminds of a story I heard about a man looking to buy a bird dog. Didn't care how much it was he just had to have one. So he went over and picked one out and took him on a trial run. The dog did everythang he asked and hours later the guy returned. The owner asked him what took so long and the guy said that there is a wondermous dog but he got one problem, every now and then that dog would lock up and point is tail in the air and nose straight ahead. Wern't nothing you could do to get him to budge. But after I beat him with a  stick a time er 2 he cut that out.
