tE3 error not fixable

Bert11 4/14/2024

I bought this dryer a little over 2 years ago and got an error code that seems to not be fixable. tE3 which indicated the thermistor is faulty. I replaced the thermistor and still getting this code. The dryer runs for about 3 minutes then flips the code signal. I also regularly clean the lint from not just the vent trap but the whole fan system and condenser. This product seems to be discontinued for good reason. I will not be buying any more LG products.

Unfixable.

NFPZ 11/30/2023

I bought this dryer less than 4 years ago and it has already stopped working. The service repair folks in San Francisco did not want to help to fix the problem and did not want to work on the issues. There was a tE3 error code that shut off the dryer within a few minutes. I followed the limited resources I found on LGs website and the problem still occured. I finally found a technician who changed the thermistor and the problem was still not resolved. Rick from the LG service was super helpful to give the technician any advice he could find to help fix the issue but even admitted that the manual to find the other thermistors was inconclusive. I am not sure why LG would make fixing one of their products so difficult but the cost incurred to fix this the time spent looking for support and the time involved in repeated visits from the technician will for sure remind me to never buy another LG product. LG would not honor any request for additional help. I now spent $350 to repair the dryer that could have been spend on buying a new one.

Reliable Performance with Space-Saving Design

LaundryLover123 7/2/2023

Im Without a doubt our LG 4.2 cu.ft. compact electric condensing front load dryer has been an ideal addition to our small apartment for the past five years. Its compact size and powerful drying capabilities have made laundry a breeze despite encountering some power-related issues along the way. The compact design of this LG dryer is perfectly tailored for smaller spaces like our apartment. It efficiently utilizes the available area without compromising on performance allowing us to maximize our laundry rooms functionality. During its five-year lifespan this dryer consistently delivered excellent results drying our clothes efficiently and leaving them fresh and wrinkle-free. However we did face a specific issue with the power system. The dryer would sometimes refuse to turn on unless we unplugged it for a few minutes before starting a load. While this occasional inconvenience did require some troubleshooting it didnt overshadow the overall positive experience we had with the dryer. Despite the intermittent power issue this LG dryer showcased its strength in drying performance. It effectively handled various fabrics and loads ensuring that our clothes were thoroughly dried in a timely manner. We appreciated the convenience of the condensing feature as it eliminated the need for venting and simplified installation in our apartment. In terms of energy efficiency this dryer exceeded our expectations. It consistently provided energy-saving performance resulting in noticeable reductions in our utility bills. We found this feature particularly appealing as it aligned with our environmentally conscious lifestyle. The sleek and modern design of the LG 4.2 cu.ft. compact electric condensing front load dryer seamlessly blended with our laundry room decor enhancing the overall aesthetics. The controls were intuitive and user-friendly making laundry a hassle-free task. Despite the power issue we encountered our experience with this LG dryer has been overwhelmingly positive. Its compact size powerful drying capabilities and energy efficiency make it an excellent choice for anyone seeking a space-saving and effective laundry solution especially for small apartments like ours.

Great for an Apartment Dryer Until is Wasnt

GP Gottlieb 6/28/2023

Definitely buy the service agreement. Dont know the statistics but these dryers are made of plastic. So glad I was covered when 4 years into the 5 year contract the motor burned out. Happily they came took the entire dryer apart and replaced the bad parts. Wonder if I can extend the service warranty....

Turns off every couple of min

Steve K11 1/9/2023

I bought this unit almost 2 years ago for my Florida condo. It does not got a lot of use as I am only there 16 to 20 weeks a year. Shortly after the 1 year warranty ran out it started turning itself off every couple of min. It typically requires 5 to 7 restarts before it finally runs till cycle finishes.

Substandard materials used in the product

Working manufacturing 11/19/2022

Arrived today with plastic composition door sensor already snapped off. Unable to use and negative review vanished. Planned obsolescence that keeps costs down and bolsters profits lead to low customer satisfaction. Should have heeded original review.
