Customer Question
I have a LG...

I have a LG dryer model DLE4801W and when I start it will run few seconds and shut off and if I wait a minute the dryer will start again for a few seconds and shut off again. If I shut off the power and wait 15 minutes turn it back on many times it will run fine. What is the problem?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your LG is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Model number DLE4801W. I would say it is 15 years or so?

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Often that issue is a bad relay on the PCB board. The contact on the relay goes bad. Here is a link to a new PCB to fix the issue. It is located under the top. Click Here Part
