Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

Is there power to the user interface and when you checked was there power to the main board?

Expert:  Joel Swenson replied 1 year ago.

first you will need to do the tests listed on the sheet below

click here for instructions

If all that checks out then replace the motor otherwise replace whatever you find to be at fault on tests.

Let me know if you have any questions, also I do have the service manual for the DLEX gas and electric LG models if you want it I will offer it as well in case you need it.

In the meantime please read below

Hi there,
I was just getting back with you, I see the question is still open and I have not heard back from you making any progress?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The problem with the Dryer ended up being a broken wire at the motor overload connection. This is a blue wire on the connector in front of the main power connector going to the motor. It is necessary to remove the front panel of the unit to gain access to this connector, I was not able to get to it through the exhaust vent hole in the back. While there, I also checked the fuse that this wire goes to to insure it was still good before reassembling. The repair took 10 minutes, removing the cover and reinstalling takes about 45 minutes to an hour. There is a You Tube Video available for disassembling the dryer for easier instructions.
