How to make a forever dryer sheet


Wad up a ball of aluminum foil till it is the size of a baseball. Put it in your dryer and leave it there. The aluminum will remove static from your clothes and also works as a fabric softener. No more need for dryer sheets after every load.

Dryer suddenly shrinking clothes


The machine has two issues that could cause this:
1. As heating elements age, they got hotter before they burn out.
2. There is a thermostat on the heater element enclosure that controls the heat, this might be going bad.

If you open the panel to see the heating element, there should be a tech sheet in the machine that has temps listed for different settings.
While you are in there, you need to clean it out. It probably has a lot of lint in the machine and this can cause a fire hazard.
The way that you test it is to put a load of damp clothes in the machine and set it and then take the temp at the outlet. You need to use a meat thermometer to check the output temp. Use the chart on the tech sheet to tell if the thermostat is working right. Also it goes without saying that you should unplug the machine for most of this.

Are dryer sheets like bounce harmful to the dryer?


I have never heard of dryer sheets being harmful to the machine but I do know that certain individuals are allergic to them and the scents that are added.Some of them are scent free and remove static electricity but do not add any smell to the clothes.
Be sure to remove the left over sheet that is in the dryer when the cycle is finished.

I have an lg dryer model DLG5966W and the check filter light is on. It takes two cycles to completly dry my clothes. I cleaned the lint filter and still doesnt dry on one cycle. I then removed the filter...


Check your vent. Inspect the dryer venting from the rear of the dryer to the outside vent hood of the home.
If there's a restriction in the vent--the clothing in the dryer takes longer to dry.
When an LG dryer is functioning normally---the time required to dry laundry is determined by the *Sensor* located on the drum side of the lint filter housing and by the main control board.
When laundry is near dry--any Time Remaining on the control panel that is *not* needed will be eliminated---except for the last 6 minutes.
The final 6 minutes of any LG automatic cycle is for cooling down the laundry before the dryer ends the cycle.
If a dryer *counts down* to the last 6 minutes but the laundry is still not dry--the computer will allow the dryer to run until the laundry has dried or defaults (not drying within the additional time allowed).
Dryer vents that are longer than 8 feet with more than (2) 90 degree turns--can affect drying performance.
Setting the DRY LEVEL selector to *Very Dry* will solve most dryability issues. In homes with abnormally long vents--even the longer run time in the *Very Dry* setting is usually not sufficient to dry laundry loads.
Reducing the length of the vent or starting a second cycle becomes necessary to fully dry the clothing.
If a second cycle was started---only the amount of time that is needed to dry laundry will be used before dropping to 6 minutes and then the cycle will end with dry laundry. Bonus:
LG DRYER

Problem:
The dryer has an auto dry feature which never fully dries the clothes so we wind up manually setting the dry time to an hour.
Solution:
LG gas dryers are VERY temperamental in long vent set-ups. If fabric softener sheets are used in the dryer--clean the two stainless steel strips of metal on the lint filter housing with a SCOTCHBRITE PAD--scrub back & forth several times to remove the waxy residue from the fabric softener sheets. Most,if not all manufacturers do *not* recommend using sheets in dryers that have a moisture sensor (electrodes).
However--using a SCOTCHBRITE pad keeps the wax off those sensors which can be seen if looking *into* the dryer drum and at the lint filter housing.
If only *liquid* fabric softener is used in the washer--clean the dryer sensors once a month. Liquid softener also contains wax which can slowly accumulate on the dryer sensors from the laundry washed in the washer.

Hair/Lint collecting on the Baffles of the dryer


I once heard you can periodically spray "Spray Starch" on the baffles themselves to alleviate lint and hair buildup. If you can prevent the unwanted particles from building up on the baffles theoretically they should be trapped in the dryer's lint collector.

Smell after drying


Try drying your clothes without the dryer sheet and see if the smell is still there. If it is not, then the problem is the dryer sheet.
If it is, then you need to describe the smell better. Different people handle smells differently. What smells musty to you may smell fragrant to others.
You need to determine if the smell you don't like is really a musty smell, or is it a fragrance you don't like. Have some friends (not family members) smell the clothes and verify if what you are smelling is musty or fragrant.

It could also be that even though the clothes smell OK out of the washer, that the detergent you are using is the cause.

Samsung dryer DV448AEP/XAA - lint buildup


Yes this is rellatively normal as clothes are just not made the same way any more. You could turn down the drying temperature slightly and put in an anti static drying sheet but it won't make that much difference.

Neptune dryer


I have the same problem, but I found that shaking the clothing articles out while they are wet before putting them in the dryer, releases the wrinkles before the drying cycle. They come out looking much better. You can also buy a dryer ball, they are balls with hard spikes, they take away static and also replace dryer sheets, they last up to 3 years. Buy them at any Wal-Mart or big retailer. Good Luck!
