Wow,well I may have to ? Lady calls , do you work on LG dryers . Yes I do. Then I walk into this gem ? Took me 20 minutes just to figure out how to get it into diagnostic . Now if I only knew what I was reading when its in it.

Strange I can't get the service manual to come up on the LG tech site.

If you want to spend $10, it's available here:  https://www.tradebit.com/filedetail.php/189113660-lg-dlec855w-service-manual-repair-guide

I have to wonder if this is really the service manual as it states or just the owners manual that comes with the dryer that can be downloaded here.

http://www.lg.com/us/support-product/lg-DLEC855W

Just seem really odd that nothing comes up at the LG tech site for a service manual for that model.

If you decide to purchase the manual from that link please let us know.

I tried LG site when I was at customers. Found nothing and went shucks or something like that. Customer stated the unit would just quit during cycles . Ran fine while I was there. She did say there were letters or numbers on the display,she could not remember. Told her I needed a manual and to write the display info down when it does it again.

I have the service manual on my work computer.  But I hae no way to print to PDF. The publication number is 3828EL9001M. I also checked LG Tech Assist and everything you would need to diagnose this dryer is on there. Just no service manual. You would need your phone or a tablet to look at it all.

Did some more research using the publication number, but come up empty handed. :(
Do you have any way to save that service manual to your computer?

Nope. I can print each page to a separate pdf file... it's tedious.

<<<Customer stated the unit would just quit during cycles . >>>

**********

An Italian design (likely a Merloni) with an LG logo on it.

Very different from the LG *built* Combo (washer and dryer all-in-one)

Most likely needs a thorough cleaning.

Designed by sadists passing themselves off as "engineers"

Lots of patience and time needed to follow through on this repair (I did it---so it *can* be done and eventually mastered)  :)
