Re: 6 minute problem
To be honest with you, I have never believed LG on this one either. It happens on alot of there units and they always tell the customer to take a wet rag and wash off the sensor bars. It works but I personally believe it is from the powder coating left on the drum after it is built. It doesn't happen on every model and I have service a ton of their units after 1 to 2 years of people using dryer sheets and they have never had this problem.
I seriously doubt it is the dryer sheets. They will tell you to use the softner in the washer but that leads to smelling problems in the future. You are in a classic catch 22 my friend.

Brian, look inside your drum for some curved strips of metal that may be 6-8 inches in length. There may be two of them that run parallel to each other about half an inch apart. This is your moisture sensor. If you use dryer sheets like a lot of people do you may have an issue where there is a build up of residue from the dryer sheets on the sensors. Take some rubbing alcohol and some cotton balls or a rag and wipe down the sensor strips. If they come back blue in color there is build up on the strips. Keep wiping down until you no longer get any blue color. That build up can make the dryer think that the clothes are dry and shuts the dryer down. Hope this helps, I have done this on a couple of different dryers and it made a big difference.
Liquid in the washer is better since sheets in the dryer are prone to leaving stains (read back of package about stain warning on every box of softener sheets i have ever seen) also the sheets leave a build up on the thermostats and moisture sensor
While the liquid in the washer softens the clothes and has no build up or staining issues such as the sheets
You have a right mixture of errors,
F11 indicates that the pump is not working.
F05 indicates that the pressure switch is jammed on full.
F04 indicates that the pressure switch is jammed on empty.
I would start by checking the pump is working o/k.
Next locate and clean filter.
This can be found by removing the rear panel of washer.
Locate and remove large black hose onto tub, remove filter and clean, refit same, make sure hose is on properly.
Test for leaks.
If no improvement, then I think your only option is to call an engineer out as it could become quite involved.
Plz rate my solution.
Yes, dryer sheets can cause a build up on the sensors and the lint filter. Clean the metal contact strips off (just inside the door) with alcohol or windex and use a toothbrush and a little soap to scrub the lint filter. With the build up you don't get proper airflow and it won't dry right. Also, stop using dryer sheets or be sure and clean the cotacts and filter about once a month.

AFTER A LONG TIME AND CHECKING ALL CONECTIONS IT FINALLY CAME DOWN TO THE CIRCUT BOARD. PURCHASED BOARD FROM REPAIRCLINIC.COM. EASY TO PUT IN. MY ELECTRICIAN TOLD ME BEFORE I START TO TOUCH THE WASHER GROUNDING MYSELF OUT.
rmcfarland I am going to make an assumption. You are using the Automatic cycle. If so then this is wet load detection. Open the dryer door and at the bottom on the front you will see 2 metal bars. This is you moisture sensor. Clean that sensor with a mult purpose cleaner. If detergent and fabric softner sheets build up a coating on this sensor, the control will think you put in a dry load and shut down the dryer. Hope this helps.
