Hello,

If anyone could help I would appreciate it. I have an LG dryer that is only a year old. When I try to start it, it powers on let’s me select a cycle. When I hit start I here two audible clicks then nothing, no humming or anything. But the time does count down so it thinks it’s on. I have replaced the door sensor, the thermal fuse, and the heating element. But still nothing. Please help thanks!

Hi,

Here's the parts diagram for your model: LG Dryer DLEX7700VE Parts

Make sure your getting 240 volts to the dryer. Where the power cord hooks up to the dryer you should have 240 volts across the 2 outer terminals RED and BLACK dryer wires.

Have LG come out under warranty to fix it for you. If its a year old its still under warranty, even if its just out of warranty you still have a case for LG to come out under warranty, companies don't want to lose customers over a few days/30 days out of warranty.

I have called them, they were not very helpful, and at this point I’m beyond the warranty by a few months. Any other thoughts?

Did you check your belt switch for continuity?

Here's the belt switch for your model:
Belt Switch EBF61734701


There is a video in the part link that shows you how to access/replace it.

If your belt switch is fine, all that's left is your control board as the culprit.

Here's the control board for your model: EBR79674701 Pcb Assembly,main

Well, i replaced the belt switch with no luck. So i will replace the Pcb board after my next pay day as this is a little pricey. Quick question, is it possible that there may be a problem with the motor?

Possibly, but I can't locate the tech data sheet for this model to tell you how to test the motor.

Usually when the motor goes bad on these, it will start for a couple minutes then shut down. Your's isn't starting at all.
