TROUBLESHOOTING
The appliance is equipped with an automatic error-monitoring system to detect and diagnose problems at an early
stage. If the appliance does not function properly or does not function at all, check the following before you call for
service:
Diagnosing Problems
Symptoms
Appliance will not turn
on
Appliance does not
heat
Reason
Power cord is not properly plugged in.
•• Make sure that the plug is securely
plugged into a grounded outlet matching
the appliance’s rating plate.
House fuse is blown, circuit breaker
has tripped, or power outage has
occurred.
•• Reset circuit breaker or replace fuse. Do
not increase fuse capacity. If the problem
is a circuit overload, have it corrected by
a qualified electrician.
House fuse is blown, circuit breaker
has tripped, or power outage has
occurred.
•• Reset circuit breaker or replace fuse. Do
not increase fuse capacity. If the problem
is a circuit overload, have it corrected by
a qualified electrician.
Load is not properly sorted.
•• Separate heavy items from lightweight
items. Larger and heavier items take
longer to dry. Light items in a load with
heavy items can fool the sensor because
the light items dry faster.
Large load of heavy fabrics.
•• Heavy fabrics take longer to dry because
they tend to retain more moisture. To help
reduce and maintain more consistent
drying times for large and heavy fabrics,
separate these items into smaller loads of
a consistent size.
Appliance controls are not set
properly.
•• Use the appropriate control settings for
the type of load you are drying. Some
loads may require an adjustment of the
dry level setting for proper drying.
Lint filter needs to be cleaned.
•• Remove the lint from the lint filter before
every cycle. With the lint removed, hold
the lint filter up to a light to see if it is dirty
or clogged. With some loads that produce
high amounts of lint, such as new bath
towels, it may be necessary to pause the
cycle and clean the filter during the cycle.

Solution
Symptoms
Reason
House fuse is blown, circuit breaker
has tripped, or power outage has
occurred.
•• Reset circuit breaker or replace fuse. Do
not increase fuse capacity. If the problem
is a circuit overload, have it corrected by
a qualified electrician.
Appliance is overloaded.
•• Divide extra large loads into smaller
loads for better drying performance and
efficiency.
Appliance is underloaded.
•• If you are drying a very small load, add a
few extra items to ensure proper tumbling
action. If the load is very small and you
are using Sensor Dry programmes, the
electronic control cannot properly sense
the dryness of the load and may shut off
too soon. Use Timed Drying programmes
or add some extra wet clothes to the load.
Heat settings, load size, or dampness
of clothing is not consistent.
•• The drying time for a load will vary
depending on the type of heat used
(electric), the size of the load, the type of
fabrics, the wetness of the clothes, and
lint filter. Even an unbalanced load in
the appliance can cause poor spinning,
resulting in wetter clothes which will take
longer to dry.
Fabric softener is used incorrectly.
•• When washing laundry that is to be dried
in the appliance, use the correct amount
of fabric softener as recommended by the
manufacturer of the fabric softener.
Clean and dirty clothes are being
dried together.
•• Use the appliance to dry only clean items.
Soil from dirty clothes can transfer to the
clean clothes in the same or later loads.
Clothes were not properly cleaned
or rinsed before being placed in the
appliance.
•• Stains on dried clothes could be stains
that were not removed during the washing
process. Make sure that clothes are being
completely cleaned or rinsed according to
the instructions for your washing machine
and detergent. Some difficult soils may
require pre-treating prior to washing.
Clothes take too long to
dry
Drying time is not
consistent
Greasy or dirty spots
are left on clothes
Solution
27
Symptoms
Clothes are wrinkled
Clothes are shrinking
Reason
Clothes have dried too long
(overdried).
•• Over drying a load of laundry can lead
to wrinkled clothes. Try a shorter drying
time.
Clothes have been left in the
appliance for too long after cycle
ends.
•• Use the Anti crease option.
Garment care instructions are not
being followed.
•• To avoid shrinking your clothes, always
consult and follow fabric care instructions.
Some fabrics will naturally shrink when
washed. Other fabrics can be washed but
will shrink when dried in the appliance.
Use a low or no heat setting.
Lint filter has not been cleaned
properly.
•• Remove the lint from the lint filter before
every cycle. With the lint removed, hold
the lint filter up to a light to see if it is
dirty or clogged. If it looks dirty, follow the
cleaning instructions. With some loads
that produce high amounts of lint, it may
be necessary to clean the lint filter during
the cycle.
Laundry has not been sorted properly.
•• Some fabrics are lint producers (i.e., a
fuzzy white cotton towel) and should be
dried separately from clothes that are lint
trappers (i.e., a pair of black linen pants).
Appliance is overloaded.
•• Divide extra large loads into smaller loads
for drying.
Tissue, paper, etc., has been left in
pockets.
•• Check pockets thoroughly before drying
clothes.
Clothes have dried for too long
(overdried).
•• Overdrying a load of laundry can cause a
buildup of static electricity. Adjust settings
and use a shorter drying time, or use
Sensor Dry programmes.
Drying synthetics, permanent press,
or synthetic blends.
•• These fabrics are naturally more prone to
static buildup. Try using fabric softener, or
use shorter Timed Drying time settings.
Lint is left on clothes
Excess static in clothes
after drying
28
Solution
Symptoms
Water leaks
Reason
Solution
The water container hose or the drain
hose is not connected correctly.
•• Connect the water container hose or the
drain hose correctly.
The door is closed while laundry or
foreign substance is caught in the
door.
•• Check if laundry or foreign substance
is caught in the door before using the
appliance. If water leaks continuously,
contact the LG Electronics Customer
Information Centre.
•• If items are too tightly packed or too
sparse the sensor may have trouble
reading the dryness level of the load. Use
a Timed Drying programme for very small
loads.
Clothes have damp
spots after a Sensor
Dry programme
Very large load or very small load.
Single large item such as a blanket or
comforter.
•• Large, bulky items such as blankets
or comforters can sometimes wrap
themselves into a tight ball of fabric. The
outside layers will dry and register on the
sensors, while the inner core remains
damp. When drying a single bulky item, it
may help to pause the cycle once or twice
and rearrange the item to unwrap and
expose any damp areas.
•• To dry a few remaining damp items from a
very large load or a few damp spots on a
large item after a Sensor Dry programme
has completed, empty the lint trap, then
set a Timed Drying programme to finish
drying the item(s).
