My LG dryer starts for about half a minute.
Then there is a strange sound and it stops and shows the error code bE.
Can you help me?

Katja Tanninen,
We see no bE error code for LG dryers in our database.
Could it be dE instead of bE?
Please recheck and let us know.

LG DRYER = dE

I have a LG Dex 5680v Dryer.
The flow sense light on the display is not working.
Is there a way to fix it, I’ve already tried resetting the dryer.
