FYI***LG washer/dryer combo heater cover rusted through
« on: January 04, 2014, 04:48:37 AM »

This is a 10 year old LG ventless washer/dryer combo.  Customer called it in as a no drying problem.  Error code dHE was showing on the display.  Found the air circulating motor frozen and the heater cover rusted through.  The unit safely shut down when it went into dry mode so the heater never damaged anything else.

Wow, what did the customer think of that?
Are they going to have it repaired?
