    Question LG dryer - drum light always on - control board dead (caused by electricity surge)

    Model Number: DLE7200WE
    Brand: LG
    Age: 1-5 years

    Sharing my appreciation in advance for your help.

    My 4 year old LG dryer stopped working, after a lightning strike. I need help diagnosing which part to order.

    Symptoms:
    * drum light stays on, whether the door is open or closed.
    * display board does not work, at all.
    * pressing the buttons for 5 seconds does nothing
    * manually rotating the drum does nothing
    * there is no visible damage to the control board. The circuits do not look fried.
    * the display board & 1 component on the control board does emit a slight burnt/electric smell

    The display board is $200. The control board is $180.

    Since I cannot see any damage, & these are costly, I request your advice on which part to order & how to further diagnose the problem.

    Thank you in advanceClick image for larger version.

    On these dryers there usually is not a way to further narrow down which of the two board is bad (or both). You usually end up having to make an guess or replace them both.
