    The dryer's lint screen doesn't appear to be adequate to collect all of the lint. Lint appears to be by passing the screen and collecting in the vent. Plugs the vent in a couple of months.

If the dryer is less than a year old the lint screen should be covered by warranty I would replace the lint screen to see if that helps.

LG dryer doesn't dry clothes on one cycle. Lint collects around bottom of door rubber seal. Have noticed, the door is not closed tight. How to get door to stay closed tightly?


It sounds like you have a plugged up vent causing air to try to blow out around door instead of out vent. Also check door latch to see if anything is broken.

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.

First thing is to check that your dryer is venting properly. If it is restricted this may occur. There are vent cleaning kits that you can purchase to make it easy to clear your vent from the rear of the dryer to the outside exhaust. Check were your link screen slides in at and inspect it for excess link build up. Any more questions you can contact us a dryer repair service.

F @ P DEGX2 lint trap problem


If you are collecting more on the outside of the house means the lint filter has a tear in it and the lint in being pulled through the tear and pushed out the exhaust. It sounds like you need a new filter but this isn't cheap. If you do it your self it will run about $70 if you get a repair man it will cost about $150.

My dryer keeps burning my clothes


I recently solved this problem on my dryer by taking apart the lint collection area. Some dryers allow you to do this by removing a couple screws surrounding the lint screen holder. Others require some dis-assembly of the top and front panel.
Once you have access behind or below the lint screen, use your hands or a strong vacuum (shop-vac) to clean out any collected lint that has fallen below the collection screen and settled in the exhaust duct. I pulled out about 100 cubic inches (~1.6 liters) of collected lint, cat hair, and debris that was obstructing air flow.
Obstructed airflow can cause metal parts near the heating element to overheat and scorch clothing and is a serious fire hazard.

Our GE gas dryer is burning clothes that are fleece fabric or blankets. Any suggestions?

I have constant lint buildup in the exhaust pipe. Why isn't the lint trap catching it?


No lint trap catches ALL the dryer lint. Some small particles of lint are always exhausted through the dryer exhaust along with warm moist air as your clothes dry. In a perfect world, this lint makes it all the way to the end of the dryer exhaust and exits your home. However, if you have any kinks, excessive bends, sags, or excessively long ducting runs, the can create choke points for lint to accumulate. This creates resistance and makes and condensation forms inside the dryer vent. With condensation, comes areas where lint can accumulate. Once the lint accumulates, it begins to collect moisture. As it collects enough moisture, it will act as a sponge and collect more lint until the dryer becomes completely clogged. Left in a clogged state, the dryer begins to overheat and dries less efficiently. You may notice longer dry times or an excessively hot dryer. Eventually the dryer heating circuits will fail. This can also become a fire hazard if the lint becomes so backed up that it begins to collect on, or near, the heating element.

If you have not checked the dryer ventilation any time recently, now may be a good time to do so. I recommend checking it about once per season to ensure it is not obstructed. Make sure you are also using the semi-rigid metal type ducting. It resists crushing, kinking, resists heat better, and resists rodent infestation.

NOTE: Mice are notorious for building nests inside dryers. Give them a warm place with bedding material and they will make it a home.

Make sure the exhaust vent is at least 12 inches off the ground. This will deter mice and others pests (like snakes or birds) from entering the dryer exhaust from the outside. If you place a cover on the vent, make sure it is of the louvered variety. Do not use screens. They will collect lint and clog easily.

An easy test to determine if you have an exhaust problem is to remove the dryer vent hose from the back of the dryer. Turn the dryer on and allow it to run. The air leaving the back of the dryer should be forceful and warm. If the air flow is weak, you need to check the dryer interior. If the air flow is normal, reattach hose and run the dryer again. This time, check the exhaust vent where it exits your home. Again, the air flow should be forceful and warm. If not, you have a clog somewhere in the ventilation ducting which will require cleaning.

NOTE: If you are using plactic ducting, get rid of it. It collapses easy, rips and mice will chew right through it.

In addtion, many home owners unknowingly will push the dryer against the wall and crush the hose behind it. This will also clog the vent and make the dryer inefficient. Leave about a 1 foot space behind the dryer for proper ventilation and ensure the vent hose does not get crushed. Semi-rigid hose will prevent this from happening.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I have seen this problem many times. Let me know what you find and if I can be of further assistance. I hope this helps you.

Lint is not going into pull out lint trap. The lint screen is torn and lint is collecting behind trap.


Poor air flow would be my guess. How long is the vent hose? Does it have more than one angle/turn before venting outside? Is the lint gathering around the outer edges of the door? Keeping the length of air travel shorter will improve the operation.
