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

I usually use the automatic settings on my dryer - but lately it is getting stuck at 6 minutes and runs and runs and runs. If I use the timed drying cycle there is no problem. So what is the problem - is it fixable?

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

I have a LG dryer model DLE5932W that will not shut off on its own


The cycle timer may be hanging up at the 1-minute point.

WHY IS MY LG GAS DRYER NOT ADVANCING TO COOL DOWN CYCLE?


If its a newer dryer, they have moisture sensors that determine if it should shut down early or stay on longer if needed. Let it run the extra time and see what happens. If it keeps doing it, then the sensor is defective.

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.

If I set the Dryer for 52 minutes It shuts off within 5 minutes. I bought the dryer used. I have made sure it is level


You do not state a model or even a manufacturer, but I'll take a stab at this.
If you use manual (or timed dry) setting only, dryer should work fine, but all automatic settings are doing what you describe,..... sounds like the moisture sensor bar need to be cleaned off. They are usually two thin metal strips, about 4 to 6 inches long and a inch or so apart. They are generally located inside the drum, very near the lint filter. What has most likely happened, is that fabric softner sheet use has built up a waxy coating on the bars, preventing them from detecting the moisture in the clothes. The dryer sees this as a dry load, and just runs the last few minutes of a cool down cycle and turns off. Cleaning the bars should restore your dryer to work in the automatic drying cycles.

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.

My LG Dryer timer gets stuck on 6 minutes everytime


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.

My LG Dryer timer gets stuck on 6 minutes everytime


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!
