Question about Samsung DV330AE Dryer

1 Answer

Has anyone had problems with lint building up inside samsung DV330AE dryers

From the first use of our new Samsung dryer (DV330AE) a few months ago, both my husband and I noticed and commented to each other that there was hardly any lint in the lint trap after a load completed. We also both soon noticed that there was an uncommon amount of 'dust' on the tile and hardwood floors (masterbath and master bedroom). Then realized it was not dust but lint. Somehow lint is bypassing the lint catcher and finding it's way to our floors. We cannot detect any air leaks in the vent hose. I'm afraid there is a build-up of lint inside the box of the dryer (you know, outside the drum) and that it may catch fire. Anyone else having this problem, or discovered what is going on and how to fix it?

Talk with a service agent , but by design the only way lint can get out of the unit is from a badly fitted lint filter
the air is blown into the dryer tub and exits through the filter to the vents
there may be a recall on the units so calling and talking will get an exact answer

SOURCE: My dryer is blowing lint out through the vent

this is normal for lint to blown out the ducting because not all the lint will be collected on the lint filter when you remove the filter some lint may fall of down into the duct housing.there is nothing ot worry about

SOURCE: Samsung dryer DV448AEP/XAA - lint buildup

Yes this is rellatively normal as clothes are just not made the same way any more. You could turn down the drying temperature slightly and put in an anti static drying sheet but it won't make that much difference.

SOURCE: lint not catching in tray and is clogging the roof vent

This is common on all dryers. Not lint screen will catch all the lint although some are better than others. If you haven't already, you will need to clean or have your home vent cleaned (with a brush that goes all the way through the vent). If vent is not cleaned the lint will back up all the way into your dryer and cause a mess. You have stated your vent goes up to your roof so you will need to clean it every 6mths to 1yr. Aside from this there is no fix that I am aware of. Please rate me after reading this.

I ran the dryer without the lint screen and am now 'missing' some socks. The dryer makes a rumbling noise. How do I get the socks out and did I break something

you better inspect inside the exhaust vent tubes for the socks. You did not break anything but they might start on fire later. You to take off the back of the dryer to take the vents apart.

My clothes are covered in lint

Hello Pam, Take the lint screen over to the sink and gently wash it in dish soap and water. Let it dry and try it. Sometimes the small holes in the lint screen plug up from using fabric softener and/or fabric softener sheets. It doesn't take much to restrict the airflow through the lint screen.

I have a samsung dryer model DV330AE that has stop heating. it is only a month old. I clean the filter after every load. the breaker is not blown. I cannot find the reason why it is not heating. can you...

Check the vent on the back of the dryer where it goes into the wall. Sometimes if the dryer gets pushed to close to the wall it will kink the vent tube and not allow airflow to go through and this will cause your heating element to prematurely shut off.
