Question about LG Dryers
Dryer is Brand New. Only 3 days old. We did not notice if light was on for previous 5 loads. Now both lights come on and stay on for complete cycle. I have researched this w/o success. Could it be a faulty panel, or are we doing something wrong?

The vent is clogged. To make sure, disconnect the vent from the dryer and run the dryer normally. If your clothes dry normally, then have a professional vent cleaning company take care of the vent.
The cooling light will always stay on during the run. When it is blinking, the heat has stopped and is in the cooling process.
If there is no heating, you have a problem with the high limit switch or something else electrical and needs to be addressed by a qualified LG technician.

Please take a look at the following link. In particular, the first major paragraph where it discusses proper ventilation:
I know the link is for a dryer that no longer heats, but if a dryer is left in a condition where it is starved for air, the heating circuits will actually over-heat and eventually fail. You need to ask yourself when was the last time you inspected or cleaned the dryer exhaust ventilation. If you can't remember, or if you've never cleaned anything before, it may be a good time to do so. Most dryer heat related problems are caused by poor ventilation and lack of cleaning. I recommend that you clean the dryer ducting twice a year. That's once in the spring, and once again in the fall. It is also important to note that the SHORTER and STRAIGHTER the exhaust vent line is, the BETTER. The more bends and kinks that you put in the dryer exhaust, the more resistance you create for the dyrer blower, and the more potential choke points you create where lint can accumulate and clog. Not to mention, this can also cause a fire hazard and/or a habitat for rodents.
Follow the recommended advice and try drying a load of clothes with the vent hose removed, first. If your clothes dry faster like they should, you may have an exhaust clog somewhere. If your clothes still aren't drying correctly, inspect the interior blower fan housing for obstructions. This is all explained in the link provided.
If you attempt these preliminary measures and still have problems, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

make sure that the vent system is clear all the way to the outside. I've seen bird nest in these vents as well as just plain lint build up.
You should feel alot of air coming out when the dryer is running.

Check the following areas thoroughly to address this issue.
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.
Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.
3. Heating element
A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes. Replace the element if found defective.
4. Moisture Sensor
Most units will have a moisture or dryness sensor as well that will fail. inspect the sensor for faults. replace if necessary.
