Recall LG TROMM Gas dryer DLG9588SM ?
« on: August 13, 2013, 02:33:06 AM »
Our LG gas dryer Model DLG9588SM is doing some strange things.  Cycle changes on its own from freshen up to a 40 minute cycle.  Sounds like gas is turning on and off rapidly.  We have now unplugged and turned it off until we get further guidience.  I think we are cursed  :rofl:   
Four appliances in one month broke  :tickedoff: Dishwasher, Refrigerator, Waterheater, and now Dryer, Oh and kitchen faucet had to be replaced as well. 

So if anyone can be of help as far as a Recall list that list all recalled LG dryers for last 7 years it would be much appreciated.  If anyone knows what these symptoms mean and how to fix them that would also be very much appreciated. 

Thank you in advance  :thanks:

Check the exhaust vent through the house.  Make sure it's clean.  The best way to test is to remove the dryer exhaust vent hose and run the unit.  If the dryer runs normally, have your exhaust vent cleaned out professionally.  If the dryer still does some erratic problems, replace the control board.

Hope this helps.

Thank you guys.  I have a feeling it is control board due to the numbers changing on time remaining but I could be wrong.  Not using it until I can have a appliance repairman diagnose it or replace with a used working one.  Gas appliance are just a little scary if you aren't sure why they are doing what they are doing,

Thanks,
Cindi
