Feel your pain. Unplug wait a minute then plug in. Hopefully it will help. This is what I had to do. Don't know why this works at times...or at least buy us some time. I will never buy another LG product. No one wants to work on them or knows how. I'm on the 3rd mother board of my dryer, purchased dryer in 2006. First mother board it came with....shot...called LG, they sent me with some yahoos that replaced it with a refurbished mother board. Was under warranty until it expired, and guess what. That one needed replaced. Got a new mother board(3rd one in it now)....same problem is starting again. Worked great since 2007 after #3 was put in until now. If it needs #4 mother board eventually.....may just need to buy a whole new dryer and it won't be an LG. Got to get something that repairmen know what to do with. I hope unplugging it solves your problem, otherwise, I'm so sorry. I have the DLE2514W......(the W represents the color, white)
Inspect the dryer venting from the rear of the dryer to the outside vent hood of the home. If there's a restriction in the vent--the clothing in the dryer takes longer to dry. When an LG dryer is functioning normally---the time required to dry laundry is determined by the *Sensor* located on the drum side of the lint filter housing and by the main control board. When laundry is near dry--any Time Remaining on the control panel that is *not* needed will be eliminated---except for the last 6 minutes. The final 6 minutes of any LG automatic cycle is for cooling down the laundry before the dryer ends the cycle. If a dryer *counts down* to the last 6 minutes but the laundry is still not dry--the computer will allow the dryer to run until the laundry has dried or defaults (not drying within the additional time allowed). Dryer vents that are longer than 8 feet with more than (2) 90 degree turns--can affect drying performance. Setting the DRY LEVEL selector to *Very Dry* will solve most dryability issues. In homes with abnormally long vents--even the longer run time in the *Very Dry* setting is usually not sufficient to dry laundry loads. Reducing the length of the vent or starting a second cycle becomes necessary to fully dry the clothing. If a second cycle was started---only the amount of time that is needed to dry laundry will be used before dropping to 6 minutes and then the cycle will end with dry laundry.
LG gas dryers are more sensitive to venting length and air flow resistance. The gas burner can cause a rapid increase in temperature compared to an electric burner. Rapid temperature rise in a gas dryer leads to premature burner shutdown (longer time required to dry laundry). The gradual temperature increase of an electric element is more "forgiving" in homes where the dryer venting is less than ideal.
Most model dryers are supported at thge rear of the drum with a bearing configuration, but usually the front of the drum is supported by some lining pads or guides. These help hold the rotation of the drum concentric. It sounds like your drum is not spinning concentric. My guess would be that some new guides might need to be installed.
Hope this helps...
