Lint screen is warped and does not collect very much lint

When I purchased this dryer, I noticed the lint screen was slightly warped.  It has never collected very much lint.  Just recently had to cleaned the vent system.

    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.

Maintenance on a drier


You will be needing to take the whole dryer apart to clean it, because lint will build up over the years that is not collected in the lint screen.
God bless your efforts.

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?

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.
