LG Tromm DLE Dryer never dries my clothes when the cycle is done

We have had the LG dryer for 2 years now - warranty is out. Every time the cycle is completed I have to run the cycle again. I have cleaned the lint line in the house. Changed the connecting line from the dryer to the lint line. I have decreased the loads. Nothing seems to work. Even when I choose the anti bacterial setting my towels will still be wet after over an hour and a half of drying. I am quite frustrated. My old dryer worked better than this!! I guess it is my own fault for waiting until my year of warranty was up to figure out there indeed was a problem.

    Thanks for the quick response. I will try it with my next load. If it is just the spinning on my LG washer how do I know if they have come out well spun? My clothes are not dripping wet ....

    Great thanks. I will let you know what happens. I have disconnected the ducting from the back of the dryer and am drying some clothes now.

  • momof3gs Jan 02, 2009

    Well, still no luck. I did notice that in the back of the dryer there is a grade looking thing? It looks almost like it is discolored in the center - like maybe burned a bit. This grade is to the right of the back of the dryer. I did choose extra hight on my spin cycle for my next load that I am doing now.

    Thank you Tom. I guess we will have to break down and call the professionals!! I tried cleaning out but nothing came out all was clean. I think it may be electonic as well. That's what I get for waiting!!

Check to make sure the problem does not come from your wash machine. If it is not properly wringing out your clothes the dryer will not be efficient.
Also, Take the lint trap on the door and wash it in the sink with some dish soap and a soft bristled brush, Make sure water can run throught it. Even if you clean your dryer vent and take the lint off the one in the machine,residue builds on the lint filter. You can not even see it. Try an easy test by running running water through it, if it pools up on the surface of the lint filter, you know it needs to be cleaned.

Your dryer has a moisture sensor, if it senses that the clothes aren't dry enough it will extend the cycle. A couple easy things to check:

1. Be sure the spin cycle on your washing machine is working properly. If the clothes are too wet when you add them to the dryer your dryer will need to add more time to get the clothes dry

2. Be sure your lint filter is cleaned after each load, and have your dryer exhaust vent cleaned- it could be clogged.

Hi,

If your
dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.
