Title: LG dryer service manual
Post by: jduramax on August 20, 2011, 03:56:01 PM
good day all
I'm new to this site, but I really like what I see..........my LG dryer keeps blowing fuses....trying to determine what the problem is, and I'm looking for a service manual for it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Model DLEX8377RM

Dryer breakdown video (http://appliancejunkblog.blogspot.com/2011/08/lg-gas-dryer-disassembly-video.html)

It is overheating. That is caused by air blockage and bad temp control klixon or thermistor. I have a slightly older manual and  a video of how to break it down.

This (http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/content/pdfs/125376.pdf) is the closest I can find to your model.

actually the dryer has to run for awhile before the house fuse blows.......and it doesn't do this every time. I'm using "D" type fuses too. I also replaced all the ducting and checked for lint buildup in the dryer. After the dryer has run for a bit it seems alot hotter than it should be. I'm going to check the thermistor, as JWWebster suggested......

try running a no-heat Air-Fluff cycle,
and be sure there is no heat
