LG DLEX 3470W won't shut off until door is open/no heat
« on: October 25, 2015, 08:36:35 PM »
This dryer is less than two years old, over the last year this unit has had an intermittent issue where it continued to run (spin without heat) after the cycle has finished until the door was opened.  We discovered after leaving it unplugged for a short time it would op perate as it should. But now it is not "resetting" as it had previously. It now continues to run until the door is open or it is unplugged and is providing no heat at all during the cycle and leaving the load as wet as it started out.

Hi Bad67z,
It sounds like there is a stuck relay on the main control board.

Here is a similar situation on another LG dryer with a different model number than yours:
dryer stays running - stuck relay

I hope this helps.
