Default dE error - shorted something - help!
Model Number: LG WM3431HW   Brand: -other-   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


So I feel like a complete idiot... well, a partial one, anyway, and I'm hoping one or more of the experienced geniuses here can help me rescue myself from the mess I created.

I have an LG WM3431HW that I bought used and have performed all the major repairs myself. The pump just went, so I took the opportunity to do some maintenance, which I haven't done in a year and a half: clean all the lint out of the machine and the condenser unit, replace the valves again, replace the drain hose that had been repaired with Gorilla tape, etc.

Finally had time tonight to install all the parts and do a test load. The wash went great, and the pump was smooth and quiet. But when it came to drying, it popped the circuit breaker. I checked out what was the trouble, and I found that the machine wouldn't start anymore due to a dE error!

Well, the mistake was a stupid one - I had connected some wires wrongly on the dryer assembly. Same colors, different connections, easy mistake to make using the little photo I had as a guide, but bad news for me.

Now I need to figure out what is shorted or burned out. I made sure the door connector was firmly in, but that isn't the problem. It's got to be a wiring thing, or a control board <shudder> thing. I did check the thermistor, but that's okay. The LED is on on the control board too.

If anyone can suggest some idiot-proof steps for me, I'd appreciate it. I did try the QC Test Mode, but it won't go past dE. Actually, when I start it up, it flashes IF:67/U03, if that's at all helpful. I thought it was supposed to just display IF:67. I do have a multimeter, but I'm not sure how to apply it in this case, and the service manual isn't all that helpful.

Please let me know what you think. I'll bake you cookies if you help me solve this. I really need this machine... and I need my kitchen back too! (It's sitting in the middle of it, and I'm in the middle of 12-14 hr workdays, and I live alone, so this is REALLY tough to be happening now.)
