    I have the same problem with my 1 yr old LG Tromm DLE7177WM electric dryer. There is nothing in the filter and the duct is brand new. In addition to the sensors remaining 'on', there is no heat coming from inside the dryer, no matter what setting I put it on.

    Our LG Tromm dryer does exactly the same thing. "Dry" light flashes but while running and "cooling" light stays on. Clothes take forever to dry.

    Same issue here. Cooling light never turns off (hasn't since we bought it only 2 months ago) Now the timer jumps time and is doing weird things.

    We are having the same problem, our dryer is about 4 years old and it just started doing this today. Has anyone had any luck figuring out what is going on? Thanks!!

I checked the gas valves. One was bad, so I changed the pair. They only come in pairs. Now my dryer works with the proper heat, but the cooling light still remains on.

LG Tromm DLE8377NM check filter but filter is clean

You say lint hose is disconnected. Are you referring to the exhaust vent to the outside? I would suspect this vent is clogged or a vent flapper outside may be stuck shut.

LG TROMM DLE7177RM Dryer: when I turn power on it says Clean Filter, filter is clean. when I select settings and turn dryer on it says simultaneously ''DRY'' flashing and ''COOLING'' on -- it ends up...

Ah you unhooked it from the wall, but did you go outside and see if air flow was adequate outside. Quite often flexable hoses and duct work get plugged with lint. If that is the case be glad your dryer had pleanty of safetys. If you start it briefly with the hose disconnected, do you get the dry light flashings? Metal duct work all the way outside is best.

Check filter light remains power light blinking

Hi friend,,,
welcome to fixya
try to unplug it for 30 minutes this should reset the control board. and clear any errors it has. and may start working again. let me know how it goes OR
try this to get it in diagnostic test mode have the dryer in standby mode then press and hold more time and less time and then press the power button to get out of this mode you will have to unplug the unit for at least 1 minute

if your satisfied with my solution PLEASE RATE IT

thank u...

The check filter light keeps coming ob to my lg tromm dryer model dle2514w. I cleaned the lint filter and also cleaned the air duct in theback, what else could this be

Clean the vent all the way to the outside.
The dryer will take 4-5 loads to reset the filter sensor.

Mahe sure the vent is not smashed behind the dryer.

Check filter light wont shut off and setting.lg tromm dryer

You might need to check the exhaust on the rear of the Dryer, or the blower motor iether one has lint inside, restricting the air flow
