Dryer Lint Trap Not Catchin Lint

Hi, I have a maytag dryer and I recently noticed that the lint trap hardly has anything on it when I clean it after drying a load of laundry. Before there would always be a thick layer of lint. I am worried that the lint is staying in the dryer and will cause a fire.

Thanks!

If you have the ability to move your dryer away from the wall and look at the hose located at the bottom of the unit. 
1. Take the house off it might be clogged 2. check for ang gaping holes in the lint screen

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.

Can't find the lint trap


There must be two vents going into the interior of the dryer, one is the intake (where the hot air comes from), the other is the outtake (where the lint trap must be). Locate the two vents and see if one of them has anything removable near it (or if the vent itself has finger holes or something that you can grab and pull or slide it open). All dryers have a lint trap (building codes probably even require it).

Gas dryer not heating all the time


Hi there,

Well if your dryer tumbles, but there is no heat then you may please check out the following -
1. First of all you can check out for proper air flow - Check the vent for proper air flow by placing your hand over the exterior vent while the dryer is running. You should feel a strong flow of air. If not then check the lint trap. It is located either on top of the dryer or possibly just inside the door. Remove any lint that has built up in the lint trap. Cleaning the lint trap should be done regularly, even as often as after every load. Do not operate the dryer without a lint trap in place.
2. Secondly you can check out the Ignitor - gas dryer blows air through a burner assembly to heat the air. The burner assembly consists essentially of a gas valve, ignitor and a flame sensor. If any part of the burner assembly malfunctions, the result will be low or no heat and slow drying of the clothes. Post comments for further help or information.....

Good Luck!!
Thanks for using FixYa!!

Where does the fluff go when you use the dryer on


The lint should go in the lint trap. If it doesn't go in the lint trap it goes out the exhaust pipe if the lint trap is not installed.
