Dryer still drying when power is off!

Has anyone experienced this problem? My dryer finished its cycle and the machine turned itself off, but the machine is still spinning/drying.

Has anyone experienced this problem? My dryer finished its cycle and the machine turned itself off, but the machine is still spinning/drying. The only way to stop it is to open the door, but the interior light is still on and using electricity.
I have tried turning the dryer off at the fuse box, waited 20 minutes and turned it back on, but the same problem still exists.

    I am having the same issue? Is there a defective part causing this?  Will LG replace it at no cost?

    I have a DLEX5170W and believe I have the same issue.  The dryer times out at the end of the cycle, but the drum remains tumbling unless the door is open or the power unplugged.  I imagine it is a sticking relay on the main control board, but it is embedded in a material and not readily accessible.  What is required?

    I have a DLE1101W and same issue. I have tried everything from circuit breaker test to leaving unplugged overnight and dryer still runs while keyboard is off. Extremely frustrating given it’s not old!
