Got an error code 'PF' on display and after that no heat
Answer Hello Steve! The “PF” flashes to indicate that a power failure occurred while the dryer was running. Press Start to continue the cycle, or press Pause/Cancel to clear the display. You will need to check voltage under a load and for loose connections at the terminal block on the back. Otherwisebad it can be a bad control board W10111606. Hope this helps!

I have power to my LG dryer, display is on but dryer will not start dryer was running and opened door while running light flashed and hasn't worked since.
You will want to check the dryer thermal fuse on the blower housing and check the door switch for continuity. Check the door switch with the door closed for continuity. If either do not have continuity then replace that part.
Ok so I ordered the heating element from you guys and I replaced it in no time thinking that was the problem after doing some research. The original heating element was broken in a few places so I replaced it with new but it still will not heat. Do I need to change the thermal fuse so that it will work or will it be something else?
You would want to check the thermal fuses and hi limit thermostat to make sure that they have continuity. There are 2 components other than the thermostats which would cause the heating element not to work. First is the motor and second the control board. The best option is to disconnect the power to the unit and access the heating element. Disconnect one wire that is going to the heating element, preferably the one on the thermostat side. Plug the unit back up and using a multimeter you will want to turn the dryer on and test for 120 vac at the terminal on the heater where the wire was disconnected. What this will do is eliminate the heater element itself and the motor. If there is 120 vac at this point then you know the heater is good and the motor is good because the other 120 vac coming through the thermostats is the control side of the circuit. If there is not 120 vac at that point then you will want to test the other terminal on the heater and check for 120 vac. If there is not 120 vac then the motor would be bad and if there is 120 vac then the heater would be the issue. If there is 120 vac at each point then the heater is faulty.
The dryer is plugged in and throws the breaker at the default ground. I unplugged both appliances plugged in and plug them in one at a time. It's the dryer throwing the ground breaker. What should I look for to be at fault with the dryer?
Answer Hello Allen,
You should use a test meter to locate the shorted component. You can begin at the power cord hot lead testing to the ground lead. You will basically have to dis-connect each component in the unit until the short disappears. The component unplugged when the short disappears is the shorted component. For more detailed troubleshooting, we would have to get you to re-post with the model number on the units' I.D. tag. This way we could see the wiring diagram of your unit and the specific wiring configuration and components involved, (since with no model number we cannot even tell if it is a gas unit or 240Vac unit. Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter.
The dryer no heat, I replaced the thermal fuse but still doesn't heat what is other possible cause?
Answer Hello Ramil. You will need to test the thermostats and the flame sensor and make sure they are good. They should read closed for continuity. Also, check the igniter to see if it is good. If it is not glowing, test for power. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter for the testing procedures. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
