Hello all. Great forum!!!

I have a 2005 model lg dlg5988W gas dryer. It quit drying altogether about a week ago. There are no codes when I do a self test and the dryer and blower both spin. I got a service manual online for it and did the troubleshooting and it's leading me to replace the controller (CPU I guess?).

I tested all 3 thermostats and they had continuity at room temperature with none of them having open circuits. The ignitor and flame detect sensor also passed their tests as well. The wiring is good as far as I can tell. Both gas valve coils passed their tests at about 1800 ohms too.

The next step in the troubleshooting is to replace the controller. A guy on a forum said that if the controller is bad, it won't send voltage to the gas valve. I didn't see a specific test for the controller in the troubleshooting.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks.

Dave
