LG dryers promise efficiency and fabric care. The Sensor Dry system measures moisture levels and adjusts drying times, ensuring clothes aren’t over-dried. Steam technology is another highlight; with SteamFresh™, clothes can be quickly refreshed, and wrinkles reduced in a short 20-minute cycle. For households that want the added convenience, the SmartThinQ® technology allows for remote start and cycle monitoring. A unique feature in some models is the TurboSteam™, which deeply sanitizes fabrics, a valuable feature in today’s health-conscious world. With a variety of load capacities available, from compact to large family sizes, LG caters to a wide range of household needs.
TE1: Thermistor Error
The dryer’s thermistor is open or shorted. The thermistor monitors the dryer’s temperature.
TE2: Thermistor Short Error
The thermistor circuit is shorted.
TE3: Thermistor High Error
The dryer’s thermistor is reporting overly high temperatures.
TE4: Thermistor Low Error
The dryer’s thermistor is reporting overly low temperatures.
TE5: Thermistor Resistance Error
There’s a problem with the thermistor’s resistance.
PS: Power Error
The dryer is experiencing a power issue, indicating a problem with the power supply or interruptions during a cycle.
DE: Door Open Error
The door switch is not recognizing the door as closed. The dryer won’t run if the door isn’t properly shut.
dE4: Door Switch Error
The door switch circuit is experiencing issues, causing the dryer to believe the door is open.
FE: Power Source Error
The dryer is detecting an error with its power source, perhaps due to voltage issues.
EE: EEPROM Error
The EEPROM on the control board is malfunctioning, indicating potential communication or data issues.
FO: Restricted Airflow Error
The dryer has detected reduced airflow, potentially due to a clogged vent or lint filter.
AF: Airflow Error
This error indicates the dryer isn’t sensing the right amount of airflow, suggesting a venting or blower problem.
HS: Humidity Sensor Error
The humidity sensor, which detects the moisture level in the clothing, is malfunctioning.
tS: Thermistor Short Circuit
The thermistor circuit is shorted. This component measures the dryer’s internal temperature.
CE: Control Error
The control board is experiencing issues, possibly requiring a reset or replacement.
LE: Motor Error
The dryer’s motor is locked or experiencing issues. This could be due to a mechanical obstruction or an electrical problem.
UE: Unbalance Error
While this is more common in washing machines, some combined washer-dryer units might display this if the load is unbalanced during a drying cycle.
nP: No Power Error
The dryer is not receiving power, which could be due to a tripped circuit breaker, blown fuse, or other electrical issues.
CL: Child Lock
Child lock has been activated, preventing the dryer from starting or settings from being changed.
CD: Cool Down Mode
The dryer is in cool-down mode. This isn’t an error but a phase in the drying cycle where the heater is turned off to cool the clothes before the cycle ends.
DL: Door Lock Error
The dryer is having difficulty locking or unlocking the door, suggesting a potential fault with the door lock mechanism or latch.
Et: EEPROM Error
An error has been detected with the EEPROM communication on the main control board.
AE: Exhaust Thermistor Error
The exhaust thermistor is malfunctioning, which monitors the exhaust temperature of the dryer.
TO: Thermal Overload
The dryer has overheated, indicating potential issues with airflow, blocked vents, or a malfunctioning thermostat.
PF: Power Failure
The dryer experienced a power failure during the cycle, which could be due to external power issues or internal electrical malfunctions.
LO: Lint Filter Alert
This is a reminder to check and clean the lint filter for optimal performance and safety. Not necessarily an error but a maintenance alert.
Ad: Auto Dry Cycle
The auto-dry sensor has detected that the load is dry. It’s more of a status than an error.
bE: Button Error
A button on the control panel is stuck or malfunctioning.
tE: Triac Error
The control board has detected an issue with one of its triacs, which controls the power flow in the machine.
Fd: Flow Sense Warning
The dryer has detected a restriction in the exhaust airflow, suggesting potential blockages in the venting system.
