How do you remove the drum of the machine?

We ran the dryer without the lint filter and we think something got stuck in the machine because it won't start. This happened once enforce and someonne came out to remove the sock that got sucked in.

Sounds like you burned a sensor up, the exhaust sensor, if the exhaust over heats the sensor trips and you have to replace it, open the back and look at the metal exhaust shaft which the end of the shaft hooks to the plastic vent that goes outside. the sensor should be located on the outside of the shaft. test if for continuity on each wire, there are two if you dont get continuity, pull the wires and jump them together to see if it will start now, please replace the sensor but the dryer should work now but your in danger of catching something on fire so replace it!

SOURCE: I ran the dryer without the lint filter in it and now it is noisy

First of all, You have a serious safety issue. Your dryer may catch fire. DO NOT USE YOUR DRYER.

Something went into the mechanism (yes, may be another sock), and a lot of lint went inside the dryer. The dryer needs to be cleaned by a technician. Using the dryer on its condition may cause a fire. Don't get your house burned down just to save some money doing it by yourself.

SOURCE: Sock was sucked into lint filter. Was able to

Yes,remove the front panel to clear the jam. Carefully inspect the blower wheel after it is cleared. The blower wheel must not be loose on the motor shaft.

SOURCE: Brand new dryer. **** went down lint filter area

You may have to remove the front panel to enter the air passages and blower fan. Try feeding a vacuum cleaner hose (remove the metal hose end) into the area behind the filter to see if can pick up whatever dropped into it. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: dryer drum won't spin

the front control panel has 2 little screws on the 2 top corners remove them, then pry off the entire control panel (very careful ) once the panel is off remove 4 screws that hold the front to the body, then open the door and remove the 2 screws in front next to the lint filter, slowly remove the front door assembly starting from top, disconnect the door switch, then lift it off the front hooks and the door is out, then remove the front 4 screws from the front bearing and remove, so will gain access to the blower housing, good luck

Forgot to put the lint trap back into LG Ventless Dryer DLEC855W. Clothing might have gotten stuck inside. Dryer now making grinding noise and drum is moving slowly. Is it time to call a repairman?


The filter simply allows the dryer air to pass through and trap the lint so it will not collect in the exit tube or on the outer vent parts. If anything, the clothes inside the bin will just spin around and be there when you finish. The noise inside the dryer could be from something that was in the pant or shirt pocket and was floating around.

I had a chipmunk climb into my vent and into the dryer. It was ran without knowing the critter was inside, now the dryer over heats. The top right side and the line where the wires run get so very hot. ...


Something is still blocking the air flow to the outside, or the motor is burned out. Pull your lint filter out and turn the dryer on. You should be able to hear and feel air rushing through the lint filter hole. If no air is coming out the blower motor is porbably burned out. If something actually stops the blower wheel from turning it will quickly burn the motor out. Remove the back panel to access the fan motor. Be sure to unplug the dryer before removing any panels. If air is flowing at the lint filter, your vent line is stopped up.

Drying humming but drum will not turn


the humming is from the motor,try turning the drum by hand,if you can turn the drum the motor is bad, it might start after you spin the drum but it will stop again,if you can't turn it the belt could be locked up on something or something is stuck in the blower wheel located underneath the lint filter,you might have to remove the duct that the lint filter slides into to get at whatever might be stuck in the wheel.

A sock fell into the lint resevoir; how do I remove it?


If your dryer is the model you have this listed under (lint filter on the top panel), then retrieving something stuck in the vent is pretty simple. Just follow these steps:

1. Unplug the dryer and remove the back panel. The dryer exhaust vent is located on the left hand side (as viewed from the rear).

2. Remove the screws that hold the vent in place and remove. NOTE: Make sure you remove the two screws located on the top panel as well. The entire exhaust vent will come out.

If this is not how your dryer is configured, please post back with your correct model number. If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

I took lint filter out to clean it and forgot to put it back in, I started gas dryer and it stopped, I believe there is a sock stuck in there somewhere. Does the front come off and what do I need to take...


Hello Kims987K,
You may want to check circuit breakers in your Breaker Panel to see if the one for your Dryer is tripped, and reset it if it is. Even though you have a Gas Dryer the Drum still operates on electricity, so without it the Dryer wouldn't function at all.
I don't think that the sock is stopping your Dryer, as the lint filter just filters lint from your Dryer's exhaust. So, even with the lint filter out a sock couldn't fit through the small holes in the drum that ventilate it (that's how the lint gets to the filter). I guess there could be a switch that detects whether the filter is in the machine and cut it off though, so you may try to re seat the lint filter (replace the lint screen/filter making sure it's in all the way), and try to start it again. If you look inside the Drum and see any way that a sock or anything else could get out other than through the door opening? That would be a problem.
If the filter was missing for several loads of laundry? Then you could have a restriction in the exhaust causing a thermal overload circuit to cut it off too (prevents the Dryer from catching fire). Does the light come on in the Dryer when you open the door?
From the information you posted, all I got is that it's a Gas Dryer that won't run and you appear to be missing a sock, so more detailed information will probably help in finding your solution.
I'll check back, and Good Luck finding that sock.
