My dryer stopped working reads vent needs  Vent filter checked? Checked everything visible?

Asked by: Donkey
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this electric dryer. If the exhaust filter appears to be clear, then it would be recommended to check the exhaust duct behind the dryer. This may need cleaning as well. If this does not resolve the matter, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 for additional assistance.

DLE4970w. 18 months old. Dryer timer will not hold minutes - jumps from 30 to 8 to 3 within 60 seconds from start. holds and runs last 3 minutes. Sensor or control board?

Asked by: bru74
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this electric dryer. It is possible that the humidity sensors are finding the clothing to be dry. If this is not the case, then the dryer may require service. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair/support-repair-provider-lookup.jsp.

Does it work also with 50 Hz. I want to take it to South America, where networks is 220 v/50 hz, instead of 60 Hz.

Asked by: Tincho65
I apologize, but no; this dryer has not been designed to operate normally in other countries. Using too high of an electrical current can cause damage to the operation of the machine.
