Does the control panel include the controller circuit board (may be inside a plastic box behind the control panel)? If not, this is the first place to look. The control circuit box cover is most likely held on with latching tabs and can probably be removed using only a flat blade screwdriver to gently disengage the hooks on the tabs.

Once you have the cover off, visually inspect the electrolytic capacitors on the circuit board. To understand what you are looking for, check the pictures in this description of a TV repair (I'd borrow the images if I had obtained permission). A capacitor with a bulging top has most likely gone bad, and there may be more than one that has gone out. If this is the case, there are two numbers you need to get the right replacement(s): capacitance (e. g., 470 uF for a 470 microFarad unit - the "u" in uF is actually the Greek letter mu, but only English characters are permitted here) and maximum voltage (e. g., 25 V). Minimum/maximum temperature range is also part of the specification, but I generally get parts with -40 C - 105 C rating or better. The minimum temperature is not as critical as the maximum temperature. When I pick a replacement, I look for two other numbers: Endurance and ripple current rating. Get the highest values you can find for these. You may have to give up a little on the ripple current to get the endurance. I usually have the best results with Panasonic FR series capacitors.

Caution: unless you are familiar with anti-static handling procedures, do not touch or remove the circuit board - let an experienced electronic technician handle that; otherwise you can do more damage to it with electrostatic discharges from your fingers. Also, make sure the breaker for the dishwasher is turned off first so you don't zap yourself. Replacing the capacitors requires skill with removing and replacing soldered components. | Answered on Jan 07, 2014 | 50 views

recheck the door to see if you got it "off center" if it drags at all the motor will not open it..once it glideds up and down freely run the motor to full open..then reatatch the door connector to it while opened.. cycle to see if it will go up and down.. | Answered on Jan 07, 2014 | 75 views

First, the 796 model means that the dryer was made by LG. The CL code usually means that the Control Lock (Child lock) is engaged. There are two buttons that you should press and hold for ~3 seconds to disengage the lock. There will be be a small icon (padlock or child's face and the padlock) with lines to the appropriate buttons. If only one button is used that icon will be on the single button. (Frequently it will be the Temp and Option buttons or just the Dry Level button. On some models, it's the Anti-bacterial or Rack Dry button.)

As for the lint trap issue, check the rest of your vent system. Sometimes, the cover on the outside of the vent comes loose and blocks the vent.

I hope this helps.

i don't think you need an exact replacement. I think you can go to Harbor Freight and get a 1 hp electric motor with the same shaft size and use the pulley off the old motor. You may have to make a few modifications to mount it but it should work ok as long as the RPM of motors are the same. | Answered on Jan 01, 2014 | 48 views

If you know for certain the fuse or circuit-breaker in your home is not tripped, or the wall safe button on the wall plate where the power cord is attached to is reset to normal; (Called a Fault Switch) then try to restart after putting the power cord back into the receptacle. If that did nothing for you, a problem with the panel switch or internal circuit board may be the problem. If so, you need a professional service technician out there to test the unit. | Answered on Dec 25, 2013 | 39 views

sounds like your heating element possibly | Answered on Dec 21, 2013 | 44 views

So you want it to make ice water. And it comes out not frozen.
Is the water cold? if it is cold then it is making ice water ok.
Ice water is never frozen, only ice is frozen. | Answered on Dec 21, 2013 | 79 views

You could try this:

It sounds like the belt or motor may have gone. Belts are pretty straightforward, I've replaced a couple over the years. The motor will take a bit more work. I also resolved such an issue by opening the electronics panel at the top of the machine and reseating all the connections. | Answered on Dec 19, 2013 | 83 views

The belt could be stretched. The motor runs but can't overcome the inertia of the drum to achieve rotation. | Answered on Dec 16, 2013 | 28 views
