I'm pretty sure that the cooling light is always on and blinks when it is cooling. I look at my brother's and he has the EQ bar and it acts the same.

You dry by sensor???
Clean your sensor. The machine thinks the clothes are dry because the sensor is covered with who knows what???
Check your owner manual for the proper way to clean the sensor.
I hope this works for you

I have seen this question here at FixYa.com before. I don't know what causes this problem but I surmize that the cooling light is tellling us that the heat is off. DuH!
That was a DuH! for me, not you!
FixYa.com rates me as a LG expert. I am not factory trained not even in the dryer repair business. There may well be other question catchers, volunteers like me, who are trained and know exactly what to do. I'm guessing.
I think you have a problem with your electronic or mechanical timer. I would normally expect a dryer to be in cool down during the last five minutes of any given cycle. I think your timer thinks it is in its last 5 minutes and therefore doesn't bother to turn the heat on. I would particularly follow this line if your timer is electronic. A 1,000,000 things can cause erattic behavior in electronics and yet, they will still check out as innocent little lambs.
I would encourage you to check all settings you are using on your machine, and I would equally encourage you to (gasp!!!) check the trouble shooting section of your LG owners manual.
I would be very interested in finding out what caused this problem. As I mentioned, I have seen this trouble before here at FixYa.com. If you would be so kind as to share your solution with me, I could pass it on to others who are in similar trouble like the person I just answered with the same trouble with three children (a ton of laundry) in the house.
Thanks in advance
Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com

I called LG after seeing this light as well and they say it's supposed to stay on and should "blink" at the end of the cycle. I've never remembered this light staying on in all the years of owning this machine but she (LG rep) said it was normal. Otherwise, if you've checked everything and it's not drying clothes, you may need to have your dryer serviced. :(
