We had this problem three times. First two times we just removed, cleaned and put back the moisture sensor (metal strips inside). The last time we did as well but it didn't help. We phoned to a service guy and he said unplug the power cord for 20-30 minutes. And it worked!

My dryer won't shut off. The timer gets stuck at 6 minutes remaining. It will go for hours if I don't monitor it.


It appears that you need to replace the timer. Also try unplugging it for about 15 minutes, if it is an electronic glitch, sometimes powering it down, and then back on corrects this issue, but it is more often a problem with the timer.

LG dryer won't shut off - gets stuck at 6 minutes


Your problem seems to be the timer switch is faulty.
Timer switches are normally non-repairable. You would need to replace the faulty switch

LG Electric Dryer DLE2515S - dryer timer is stuck on 6 minutes and continues drying until I manually switch off - sensor dryer does not appear to be working either.


OK, test the dryness sensor for its operational value. if the test confirms sensor function, you will need to replace the main PCB board in this case.

Now, if the sensor test reveals a faulty sensor device, simply replace the sensor. In most cases, this iwll be a fualty PCB main and, replacing it will usually fix this issue.

Dryer on sensor dry - gets stuck on 6 minutes and does not finish


We have been having this same problem. I had tried adjusting everything that I could think of when putting a load of laundry in and got the exact same results as you. I would select the sensor dry and it would count down just like normal until it got to 6 minutes and then it would just run forever at 6 minutes.
My husband and I searched online all this afternoon and came across what seemed way to simple to work. We removed the lint filter, unscrewed the filter housing right inside the door of the dryer, and got to the sensors. We took a damp cloth and wiped them off very well to remove any and all buildup. We wiped everything down very well to remove any built up lint and/or dirt and put everything back in place as was before. We then unplugged the dryer for about a minute and then plugged back in. We put a load of already dry clothes into the dryer and started as usual with the sensor dry. It started out at the usual 41 minutes then skipped down almost immediately to 6 minutes and then a few minutes later I heard the most beautiful sound I have heard in a long time. The Beeper signalling that the timer had counted down to the end and was finished. It had worked. Thankfully. Hope this helps you also.

Drying timer on auto dry


I called LG...they said to unplug the dryer for 5 min. to reset the timer ...this solved the problem.
They also said not to use dryer sheets during the sensor dry cycle as the coating on the dryer sheets causes the sensor to malfunction as it can't read the humidity level in the dryer.

Look inside the drum on the right side of the filter. You will see two metal strips, thee are humidity sensors. Wipe them down with soap and water. It worked for me. The info came from LG tech support.
