    Most common repairs needed to fix a LG dryer

    Electronic Control Board Replacement

    When sound and signal features aren’t working on your dryer, a defective electronic control board could be causing the problem. The electronic control board sends signals to the control panel to control signal and sound features. When no sound is working on the dryer, internal logic in the electronic control board may be corrupted or an internal relay on the control board could be broken. When your clothes dryer is making no sound, have a Sears Home Services Technician visit your home and replace the electronic control board if it’s defective.


    Power Supply Board Replacement

    When the display is not working on your dryer, a defective power supply board may need replacing. The power supply board distributes electrical current from the dryer power cord to the electronic control board and other components in the dryer. When the power supply board doesn’t send power to the electronic control board or the control panel, the dryer won’t power up. When your dryer is completely dead, have a Sears Home Services Technician visit your home and check the dryer. The technician will replace the power supply board if it’s defective.

    User Interface Control Replacement

    If the dryer control panel sound isn’t working, you can suspect an inoperative user interface control. The user interface control sends signals to the control panel to trigger alarms and sound functions. A defective user interface control won’t send the proper signal to activate sound on the control panel. When sound isn’t working on your dryer, schedule repair service and our Sears Home Services Technician will visit your home and fix the problem.

    What to expect when you experience an LG dryer no sound issue

    How is the no sound problem fixed?

    Correcting most no sound problems usually involves replacing the electronic control board, power supply board or user interface control. However, there are many potential causes, so a thorough diagnosis is key to fixing the problem. An accurate diagnosis is essential to understanding how much the repair will be.

    Sears Home Services recommendations for a dryer that has no sound

    When the dryer has no sound it can be for many reasons. To avoid replacing unneeded parts we recommend having a Sears Home Services professional perform diagnostic tests to identify the root cause of the problem. Our technicians are experienced at diagnosing all types of dryer failures.

    What to look out for with a dryer no sound diagnosis

    Diagnosing modern appliances without proper knowledge and training can be difficult. Without using proper diagnostic techniques, fixing your dryer problem will only be achieved through changing parts on a hunch. Appliances, especially in the last 10 years, have become extremely advanced, and many models have electronic parts that are difficult to test. DIY repairs on the latest appliance models are becoming increasingly difficult.

    Excellent service from Daniel

    Daniel provided excellent service and was very quick to perform the repair. I have nothing good to say about the warranty program and the LACK of customer service and the inability to contact a human being to talk.

    Dryer service

    He was professional and polite. I didn't call back later that afternoon, although he replaced a thermostat the smart dry timer doesn't work as I was still having the same issue. The lady said she would email him and have him return. Never heard from anyone else.
