We are having the same issue with our LG dryer model #DLE1101W, electric. It just keeps spinning. We have cleaned it out and tested everything. After reading this post it looks like we need to change the main pbc board. We can't seem to find the part for our model. Can anyone help with this?

Great site! It's like I've found the lost ark. Same issue - will not stop spinning until you unplug it or open the door. Darn thing is only 28 months old.

LG DLEX2650W

Is it still this one?

Hey,

I'm having the same problem with my LG dryer.  It seems to happen after using the Steam Fresh cycle.  After unplugging it after each use for a few days, it starts to work properly.  has anyone heard of the Steam Fresh causing this issue?

Thanks,
Bob

In case you're keeping count, add one more LG dryer model DLEX2650W.  Ordered the part listed above.  Do you have installation instructions somewhere?  Love this site!  Thanks for saving me a couple hundred on a repair service!

If your dryer won't stop running then you most likely need a new control board, part # EBR33640905

Good info on this topic.  I just had the same problem with our DLEX2655.  Hearing it could be a relay, I unplugged the dryer, removed the three screws holding the top on, slide it off and lifted out the control board.  Not knowing which part was the relay, I tapped each part on the board with a screwdriver handle and plugged the dryer back in.  Problem solved at least for now.  Maybe a new board in our future though.

I'm having the same problem. My dryer is only 2yrs old and the LG support people were not useful. I'm not an electrician or handyman, just a female who needs to do laundry. Any suggestions?

I am having a similar issue with my LG model DLG4802W.  The dryer just spins, no heat.  No display, unless I play around with it (and it will only show a display for a brief period and will not let me choose certain functions, such as time or heat setting)  Also, when you do see a display, it shows heating and cooling together (but no heat)  I tried the smart diagnosis app, but it can't detect a problem.

Having this issue now. Where is the access to replace the PCB? Front/back? Our units are stacked on the walk so need to know how annoying this part will be to change

I might have found a simple, free fix for this problem:

I have a 2 year old LG DLEX8000W that suffered from the same problem of drum turning whenever the door was shut. It's stacked with about 10 inches of clearance to the ceiling, so I really didn't want to attempt a disassemble. I had tried cutting the power to it at the breaker without success. I had been putting up with the problem by leaving the door open between runs, but sometimes it ran run for hours when I didn't hear the beep after the end of a cycle. I estimate I did about 15 loads with the malfunctioning dryer over the course of 1.5 weeks.

Recently I wanted to dry a load of dress shirts for which I had created a custom cycle of the lowest heat for 20 minutes followed by the "wrinkle care" setting, which turns the drum on every couple of minutes to agitate clothing to prevent wrinkles for forming before emptying. I'm skeptical that this setting does much for wrinkles, but I think it solved my problem because after my custom cycle, I was surprised that the dryer stopped like it should. I've now done about 5 loads, and it appears to be back to normal. I'm not an electrical engineer, so I could only guess why this worked for me. Perhaps the "wrinkle care" setting drives the relay a little differently. Or perhaps it isn't the wrinkle care setting but rather something related to my custom program or just a random coincidence.

I'd like to hear if this fixes the problem for anyone else. Was it a fluke for me or is this an actual fix?

I have a DLE2140W with the same symptoms... dryer tumbles the enter time its powered on except when door is open, even when turned off.  I can't seem to locate the PCB for this, initial search says LG is no longer making it.  Ideas?

Just found this site after a quick google search this AM when I found my dryer running.  You guys are awesome!

Same problem as everyone else, dryer drum is running without heat while it is off.  Only way to stop drum is open door or unplug.  Can turn on and run "normally" (heat comes on, timer counts down etc).

Model LG DLE5955W - Sounds like I need a new Main PCB Assembly, which I think is ebr36858801

Can anyone confirm this makes sense/advise what I need instead?
