LG Dryer Fails flow test
« on: February 03, 2010, 09:05:09 PM »
I just installed a new LG Dryer DLEX2501W (side vented) and ran the flow control test and came up will all bars. Disconnected vent pipe at side of dryer and ran the test again, same results all bars. Air is blowing out side vent very hard, is there something I need to reset and try the test again?

Thought I would check before calling tech support.

Cheers!

LG support said to run 3 full loads then run the test. Hopefully this works.
Cheers!

Thanks great manual, LG tech said to run 3 full dryer loads then run the flow test again.  This time the test ran with no issues.

Thanks
