I apologize for the similar post to the DLE5977 post, but I think this is a different problem.

 

 

Background: This LG dryer is at least 6 or 7 years old.  Has worked great until 3 days ago.

 

Problem: No heat on using any settings (e.g. Normal, Air Dry, Speed Dry).  The diagnostic code flashes 19:F0/U01.  Hit Start/Pause 3 times temp stays at 21 to 22.

 

So far, I have cleaned out the venting system - inside dryer (as far as hand reaches) to outside house vent.  Good air flow.

 

Questions:

1) Am I looking at a gas valve issue?  I have not had a chance to check it because I will be leaving in hours and will not be able to work on this for about a week.

2) Is there a quick and easy temporary fix for the dryer until I can work on it next week?

 

Thanks,

zt

<<<The diagnostic code flashes 19:F0/U01.>>>

 

****************

 

Software ID number (not relevant in this case).

 

*****************

 

<<<So far, I have cleaned out the venting system - inside dryer (as far as hand reaches) to outside house vent.  Good air flow.>>>

 

*****************

 

If the vent system was partially restricted/blocked---then it is likely that the ***resettable*** THERMAL LIMITER is "open".

 

Can be reset by pressing the small button on it.

 

Location is---on the Burner Housing at the 7PM position (if looking at the burner assy from the front of the dryer).

 

Verify that the entire Vent System is clean/cleared.

 

Unplug the dryer before attempting to service.



 

To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"

Thank you John63.  Do I have to pull the whole front off to get to the reset or can I get to it from the back?
