My LG dryer's cooling light stays on no matter what cycle I run it on. I just replaced the main control panel and ran it with the vent tube disconnected and the same thing is happening. It is getting warm but it take two cycles to dry clothes. Any ideas? Thank you in advance. LG DLE5977W
ANSWER Hi Matt. You may have a shorted heating element that is only partially heating. The element part # is 5301EL1001J. Check the thermistor that is by the back of the blower hsg. It should read 10 Ohms at room temperature. Check all your thermostats for clos or 5 ohms or less. Thank You.
