    LG DLE4970W dryer won't stop spinning

    Model Number: DLE4970W

    Age: 6-10 years

    Dryer works normally on all cycles and dries correctly. At the end of any cycle, it keeps spinning and can only be stopped by opening the door or killing the power. From what I see online-not specific to this model-the likely problem is the main control board. I've tried unplugging all the connectors from the board and reconnecting, but that didn't solve the problem. I've seen some mention of possible thermostat or heat sensor strip problems. Before I spring for a new control board, does anyone have any thoughts on whether the board is the definite or highly likely culprit? Thanks very much.

    Yes the control board is the most likely culprit.

    The moisture bars are not used when using a timed dry cycle but it would not hurt to clean them.

    I do not know of a thermostat in the unitthat will keep it running.
