SOURCE: My LG washer powers off completely after running

I had the same problem with my LG washer today. I found another post that said to hold down the start pause button 5 seconds, plug back in so you have power, run on drain/spin at highest spin speed. I did it and so far after each load it has not shut down.

Dryer will not turn on. Lights blink and the Code "F-01" shows in the display

depending on your model The F-01 error code indicates a primary control board failure . If the error cleared after unplugging it for a while, then the control board could have received a power surge or glitch through the electrical lines. Completely disconnecting the electrical power and then reconnecting it will sometimes reset the board and it will operate properly. If your dryer continues to operate properly, then resetting the control board may have fixed your problem.

If the dryer motor continues to stop, then you may have a bad control board. A wiring problem or drive motor failure could also prevent the dryer from continuing to run properly. A technician is normally needed to diagnose and repair this type of problem.

If the F-01 returns and will not clear, then you will need to replace the control board in the dryer

We have an LG electric dryer Model number DLE2050W and when I turn it on it starts and runs but after awhile the illuminated board goes black,but the dryer continues to run. But it will not shut off.

I have an educated guess for you. A part of each control of a washer and a dryer is a little electric "clock". Those things can fail. I sounds like you may have a timer clock that is sticking and not advancing.
These " clocks" are a part of the times, and are not sold separately.
One way to possible tell would be to put your ear to the area of the control panel where the timer is and listen. Most of those "clocks" tick, and you can often hear them, or you can watch the dial, and it should advance with a click every so often.
Be blessed.

The dryer does not pass a 6minute mark. It continues to run and doesn't shutoff.

There are more parts to check and figure out this issue. Check door switch, then temp thermostat.

if it has continuity it's good and isn't the problem,if the dryer starts and stops running after a minute you could have a bad computer board,when it stalls try tapping on the board and see if it starts,also unplug it and look at the board you might see something cooked on it or a soldier joint melted.

Aeq6000 won't turn off

This has to do with the control board failure. The control board runs every aspect of the dryer and will need to be replaced. Here is the new control board.
