My gas dryer will power on but not do anything else.
« on: November 06, 2010, 12:08:50 PM »
My LG DLG5966W gas dryer will power on, but it won't do anything else.  The panel is all lit up, but turning dials or pressing buttons does nothing.  Sometimes if I unplug the AC cord from the wall and plug it back in, that clears the problem, but not anymore.  I have made certain that the vent is clear, and I always clear the filter after every use.  Is the main circuit board likely bad?

Look through a LG manual before you order anything

The manual didn't help much in the way of troubleshooting, except to show me how to disassemble the dryer in order to get to the main PCB.  I ordered a new board online.  When it arrived, it only took me about 15 minutes to replace the old one with the new one.  That fixed the problem, and now everything works great!  Thanks for the link to the manual!
