    I stated in the problem that the duct, etc are clean and clear. The lint screen is obviously the first thing anyone would check and I clean if after every load. The problem is the flow sensor and the cooling light.

Found this on another site:

It normally takes about 45 minutes for a dryer to dry a full load. If your dryer is taking more than an hour, check these.

Vent
Heating element
Internal ductwork
Cycling thermostat
Vent Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance.

Heating element Your dryer's heating element may be partially burned out. If it is, your dryer still heats, but at such a low temperature that it takes three or four times as long to dry the clothes. If the element is partially burned out, replace it.

Internal ductwork Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum, contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

Cycling thermostat Although this isn't a common problem, one of the thermostats that controls the temperature in your dryer may break and cause the dryer to heat poorly. If so, you need to replace it. The thermostat is usually a small, round, black device mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate is mounted to the internal ductwork with two screws.
However, since you stated that this unit is less than 3 months old, I wouldn't try to attempt to open the unit. It is still under warranty and you should excercise your warranty options (Thats what you are paying extra for!)
Best to contact your point of purchase and inform them of this issue.

Hope that helps! If you found my answer to be of any help, kindly take a moment to "Accept" my solution. Should you have any further queries, kindly post back and I will try to assist you further as best I can.

Cheers!

There may be some connections left inside or this may be due to the problem with the thermistor so check ....i think checking by own may not be a risky one so go with near service centers

HI,

Clean the lint screen/filter before or after drying each load of clothes. If clothing is still damp at the end of a typical drying cycle or drying requires longer times than normal, this may be a sign that the lint screen or the exhaust duct is blocked.

Please don't forget to rate or accept the solution.

  • dewan nafees ahmed Jun 08, 2008

    else this may be the thermistor problem which has died and failing to detect the temperature.
    else the circuit board has got some error(which can be cleared by resets) which prevents to analyze the temperature inside.


  • dewan nafees ahmed Jun 08, 2008

    try to do a hard reset and see.

    if it is not fixed means it can be the thermistor problem

    to fix the components u must be well experienced in electronics.
    else its risky to do by yourself.


  • sportster Aug 14, 2012

    exactly how do you do the hard reset. My friends LG DLE 5595W will not turn off.

Why would check vent light go on after replacing sensor and computer


Is the dryer vent blocked with lint? If there is a restriction in air flow in the vent system, the dryer will stop. Make sure the vent path is completely clean even in the wall where the vent hose connects.

Recheck the vent all the way to the outside and make sure the vent hose is not smashed behind the dryer.

Long time to dry complaints almost always are due to a restricted vent.

Remove vent to dryer and test a wet load if they dry ok then the house vent is at fault.

Sounds like your outside vent is plugging up. Go outside your house and check for lint build up and just pull it loose with your fingers or a shop vac.

If it's not obviously plugged from outside, feel the volume it should be significant. If it's very weak (while running of course) your ductwork may be plugged elsewhere, for example at an elbow, or the joint between a flex hose and the actual duct.

LG Tromm dryer now takes two cycles to dry a load


The problem with the LG tromm dryers are seemingly two fold.
1. The dryer stops heating and drying the cloths. I found out AFTER HAVING IT SERVICED TWICE AND WAITING A MONTH FOR A NON ESSENTIAL PART. The problem turned out to be the dryer vent going from the wall to the outside was severly clogged. Once this was corrected the dryer worked great.

2. The second issue probably is a design issue in that a large amount of lint seems to get by the lint filter and ends up in the vent that the dryer is connected to and goes out side the house. In my case I have a long dryer vent imbeded into the wall to the exterior, in a shorter vent this probably wouldn't be an issue.
