Was out to check out 'burnt popcorn smell' in LG dryer and found plenty o'lint inside dryer, some of which had caught fire, but luckily had not spread. Cleaned all that out (along with equally clogged vent line) and re-assembled. Now cooling light is flashing while dryer light is on and no heat. My first thought was the thermistor or the moisture sensors, but someone else says it could be control board. Any ideas? I do not usually work on LG's and do not know much about them other than they are a pain!

there's (3) Thermal devices

one of them controls the Drum Motor

on a few models, they may be re-settable

Usually the Thermal Limiter (6931EL3003D) in the left/center location of the Heater Housing fails.

 

If so---always replace the Thermostat (6931EL3001E) at the rear of the Heater Housing.

 

NOTE:

 

Thermal Limiters on LG *gas* dryers are resettable---but not on the *electric* dryers.


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"
