LG DLG5988 No Heat - Diagnostic 19:F0/U01

4 posts in this topic

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

Software ID number (not relevant in this case).

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.

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?
