Question and Answers

Q:

LG DLEX3001W Electric Steam Dryer, no display, drum light is on, house breakers ok, power to Dryer ok. Stopped in the middle of a drying cylcle.

A:

Since the display does not light up, those components that you are describing in your details are probably not causing your problem except maybe that thermistor. There is a chance that a failed thermistor could drag down the DC power supply to the display PCB control board. That resistance of the thermistor should be relatively high compared to the other components in that heating system that you are describing. The testing information for that thermistor is shown in the first image below. Make sure that your meter is set on the proper range to measure that kilo-ohm resistance. At 70 degrees F, that thermistor should measure about 5.2k ohms (5,200 ohms). This may explain why you measured it as "open". If that thermistor is okay, then you should not have to replace it. If you do need to replace it, it does not matter which way that the wire are connected on that component. It also does not matter which way the wires are connected on those thermostats if you wind up replacing those components. I do not recommend that you replace those components at this time unless they are apparently bad. Be sure that you unplug the dryer to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components.

The second image shows information on checking the power supply to that main PCB control board. You have already checked some of those issues. You can use that information to make sure that you have power to that main control board. NOTE: Use extreme caution when checking that live voltage to the control board. Wear proper protective equipment (electrical safety gloves and safety goggles). Unplug the dryer as soon as that live voltage testing is completed . That information should help you troubleshoot this problem. I provided a wiring diagram for the dryer in the third image. The 4th image shows information on accessing and replacing the main PCB control board and the display PCB board. If that main PCB board is getting power but the display will not power up, then you will probably need to replace that main PCB board (part EBR36858811). If the display will not power up after replacing that main PCB board then you may also have to replace the display PCB board.

You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website.

Be sure that you unplug the dryer before accessing internal components.

I don't have a component schematic diagram of that control board beyond what I provided in my previous response. I understand your concern about that burnt spot on the control board. You may be able to have that control board repaired at a local repair facility if you can find one that will fix circuit boards. I recommend that you check that circuit and the components for a short. You can UNPLUG the dryer and check those thermostats for resistance. They should measure 0 ohms (continuity) at room temperature. You can also check the resistance of those thermostats to the metal cabinet. You should not measure any resistance (infinite resistance or Ol -- open load) when checking those components to the metal cabinet ground. The resistance for the heating elements is also shown in that image. You can check the resistance of those elements and check those components for a short to the metal cabinet as described above. If you find no problems with that circuit, then you should not have any more problems after repairing and/or replacing that main circuit control board. If you need more help, let us know.

You can test for a short through that wire to the bare metal on the cabinet next to the control. You should not measure any resistance through that wire connection to the metal cabinet. If you do not measure any resistance, then you should not have any trouble when you power up that control.
