Dryer only stops when door is open - LG DLG4871W
« on: August 02, 2016, 12:28:14 AM »
Hi - I believe this means it is a PCB issue based on other model questions.  Any alternative suggestions?

I see EBR33640902 but perhaps an expert can suggest the correct one if I'm off!

I guess I could leave the door open but the light is on and getting a bit hot.  Oh well.

Thanks!

I know it sounds dumb but if you can live with it just take the light bulb out and leave the door open a bit. The alternative is a lot more money to fix.

Well, that's tough if we start the dryer and leave the house or go to sleep!

If I need to fix the issue, is it the PCB?  If so, do I have the right one linked?

Thanks!

That board is the correct type of board,  where the relay is for blower motor. However just double check that is the right part number and order away as i do not have any way to check the number vs your dryer at the moment.

Don't forget to select the beer icon under my logo. Thank you
