LG Tromm Dryer
« on: November 18, 2010, 10:31:13 AM »

LG DLE7177RM dryer powers on, tumbles, heats.... for about 30 seconds then the drum stops tumbling. The dryer stays powered on. The only that appears different is that the the cooling light is consistently on- even while the drying light is flashing.
Any ideas?

Try cleaning the sensing bars inside the dryer with windex. It might have some junk on them bars preventing the dryer from sensing wetness.

Cleaned the sensors. Took off and cleaned out dryer hose. Vacuumed out the lint area. Flipped the breaker, unplugged the dryer..... Nada.

Check door switch or loose wires from Motor to PCB.
