How To Reset an LG Electric Dryer

Is your LG electric dryer acting up and causing you to panic? Laundry is an essential chore when it comes to keeping a clean house.

And a misbehaving dryer can make you panic, especially if you are not in a position to dish out cash to repair it or get a new one.

While switching to panic mode, you may want to try and reset it first before you even consider calling in a maintenance specialist to fix the dryer.

As simple as this sounds, it may be the only step you need to take to get your dryer back to its performing condition. So how do you reset an LG electric dryer?

Start by turning the dryer off by unplugging it or switching it off at the circuit breaker. This will give the dryer a chance to reboot its system back to the factory settings.

Please wait for a few seconds before turning it back on. You can also turn it off by pressing the start/pause button and holding it down for 5-seconds until it powers off.
