Question about LG Dryers
Sorry it's taken so long to get back to you. I asked a LG factory service trainer your question yesterday at a factory service training meeting. He said that although there is not a code like that listed, he suspects you may have a bad neutral electrical connection. (I don't think the control itself is bad, because you replaced it and have the same problem. Not very likely you would just happen to get a replacement part which would be defective, esp. in the exact same way)
Start by checking the dryer cord connections to the dryer. Also check the wire connections inside the household dryer receptacle that you plug the cord into. If all good and tight, check the wires in the breaker box / fuse box, at the breaker and the neutral buss bar. Of course it is possible that there is a poor connection inside the dryer at a multi plug (make sure plugs all plugs you can find are seated firmly and wires are not loose in the back side of the plug - have seen this on occasion) or a pinched / partially cut wire. (usually much harder to find) Good luck.

Good Afternoon Butchie111, thank you for your post!
From the information you have provided your Frigidaire dryer is displaying an error code of "EL8" and it will run for 30 seconds then beep the code. I am showing that "EL8" is an invalid code. It could be a possible miscommunication error so I would suggest performing a reset on your dryer and you can do that by disconnecting power from your dryer for roughly ten minutes. If that does not help your issue could you please provide me with the new error code or inform me if your dryer still displays "EL8"? I look forward to your response. -Matt
