HI, I have a brand new LG Dryer DLE5955G, that I ship it overseas... When I was there, I connected the power cable to it (the big one with 4 wires that I ship it too from US) I plugged the power cable as follow: (4 wires: (the voltage between black wire & white wire was: 220V), ( the voltage between the Red wire and the white wire was: 220V), and the Green wire was for the ground)... Then, I pushed the Start button on, the dryer turned on fine for about 5 seconds then turned off by it self... Since then I couldn't turn the dryer on...
Please tell me what was the problem? is it the voltage that need to be 110V instead? and what part(s) that has been damaged, and what should be done to get it fix?
Thank you so much in advance for your quick answer..
There is an adapter that you would need to allow the unit to operate off 440 vac 50 hz as opposed to 240vac 60 hz. By connecting without the the adapter to convert the power, the control board is now bad and would need to be replaced.
Nothing happens when you press the power button, light come on when you open the door. Have checked the power source everything is ok there. Looking at the control board the resitor near the connector coming from the power switch has some black liquid coming out of the end it is also under the clear coating
Answer Don, You're needing a new control board, but you probably realized that. Any damaged to a control board or any component on the board will require a replacement. The oozing liquid, would indicate the voltage capacitor has failed, and that's usually due to some type of voltage "spike", or ongoing electrical power supply issue. The damaged component would explain why the light works, but the control won't . Thanks and Good Luck
I have used this dryier for over 2.5 years and the problem just started last weekend. When I push the power button nothing happens. The light inside goes on when the door is open, but none of the buttons on the control pannel makes any difference. Since there are 2 control boards in the unit, I am not sure if one of them is malfunctioning. Any ideas are greatly appreciated.
Answer Hi Anton. Remove the power. Remove the top by removing the three T-20 torque screws on the back of the cover . Slide the top back and up to remove it. Look at the incoming wires and see if they are all clean and tight at the terminal block. I would use a volt/ohm meter part # TJMA-DM1 to assist. you in your diagnosis. You need 240 vac to the outer 2 of the terminal block and 120 vac from each end to the middle neutral terminal. Use the Supplied tech. diagnostic sheet to put the unit in a diagnostic mode to find the direct fault code. After you find a code then we can help decipher a part needed. Thank You.
