  1. I had an error code to replace the door switch, which I did. Now when I select the power button, it turns the dryer on and then I select a dryer setting, the lights come on and when I push the start button the dryer does not start running and instead there is only a clicking sound and the drying light flashes on and off. There are no other error codes.

  2. I turn the dryer on & it starts than it stops & the code EE2 comes up? I turn off & start again & all is fine? What does this code mean?

  3. My LG Tru Steam dryer will not turn off. There is no error code (the screen is blank) and the dryer will only turn off when the door is opened. The dryer is not heating when it is running, the vent is clear. To stop the dryer the dryer must be unplugged. The tech is here and is stumped. What is a possible cause/remedy? The dryer is 1.5 to 2 years old.

  4. power button turns dryer machine on and the select a dryer setting lights come on and I can select a dryer setting but when push the start button the dryer does not start running and instead there is a clicking sound when I push the start button and the processing drying light flashes on and off

      Holly Klope,
      Attempt to reset the LG Dryer by removing power for 10 minutes.
      Reapply power and see if this may fix it.
      If not you may have a faulty control board or a wiring problem.
