LG Dryer keeps spinning
« on: January 10, 2016, 01:35:55 PM »

Hi -- trying to figure out the replacement part for this issue.
I also replied to an older thread but not sure if that is still active and being read or followed.

We have an LG DRYER model number DLGX3471W.
The dryer is working normally except the drum does not stop spinning after the cycle completes.  The only way to stop the drum from turning is to either keep the door open or unplug the unit.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

relay on the main board is stuck. Will need a new main board. Maint pcb EBR36858812
Remove power.
Remove two screws from the back of the lid so it can slide back and off.
Once off, you will see the main pcb right in the front right side. There you will see black squares (relays) take the screwdriver handle end and tap each of the relays as if you were knocking on a door.
Plug back in, does it stop when it reaches the end of the cycle?
If not, unplug and tap the relays a bit harder
Plug back in and test again.
Sometimes you can free them up sometimes you can't. Either way you will still need the board.

Thanks so much for the help!  I'll probably just go with the new board and be done with it.
Thanks again!
