Most overlooked dryer energy savingr problem ever!



First, you must know that a common clothes dryer is really a water pump. It pumps water outside by
heat convection. Just because its hot doesn't mean its drying clothes efficiently.
The tip here concerns the filter. If you think your filter is clean, look again. You may have cleaned
all lint from it but it probably is still ineffective and energy draining.
Do this. Place your filter under a trickle of water in the sink, after lint removal as you usually do.
The water, most likely, will not go through the filter. What happens is that water promotes scale and clogs
the filter. (well you've got water being dried by heat which leaves scale.) This scale (or stopped up filter)
can cause a great deal of extra running time, and a dryer uses a lot of energy. (Electricity)

Scrub the filter with a bristle brush and dishwashing liquid and then run water on the filter again.
You can see how much more the water runs freely through the dryer filter.
Dry the filter, and reinstall. It's so nice to save a great deal of electricity!
You can see how the wet air is not moving the water out of your clothes very efficiently and it also
can cause the dryer to overheat too much so that the thermal switch (or fuse) blows thus causing a
expensive service call. (Most won't even tell you about the scale clogged filter anyway) Because most
don't know it either.
Enjoy your savings!!!!

How do i access my dryer filter


On the front at the bottom left is a rectangular panel that you pop off. (I use 1/2 a wooden laundry clip so as not to scratch finish.) Have a bowl or a bucket handy and perhaps a towel or two. There is a tube clipped to the washer. Detach from washer and unplug it and let water drain into your bowl. When water stops flowing, plug and reattach. Then (with towels ready) turn the the pump filter counter-clockwise (the circle to the right of the tube) until it comes out. More water will drain in this process. Clean the filter of any foreign objects. Replace and turn clockwise until it won't turn any more.

Dryer will not Dry!


A conventional dryer uses 240 volts to heat air, which passes through the tumbling laundry, picking up moisture, which is then vented to the building's exterior.
Your dryer uses 120 volts to warm air, which picks up moisture from the tumbling clothes, which then passes through a vent pipe in the back right corner of the dryer where a cold water spray causes the moisture to condense, run to the drain, and then is pumped out of the washer/dryer combo. There is no exterior vent to the outside of the building. Drying with your dryer will take at least twice as long as with a standard dryer. You can wash large loads, but can only dry small loads, and the clothes will not be as dry when dryer is finished as they will be with a standard dryer.
All that said, to make sure your dryer is performing as well as it can, you might like to take the back cover off and check the elbow at the very left bottom corner (when viewed from behind) to make sure nothing is obstructing the flow of water under the tub to the drain.

Washer-dryer # wm3677HW will not dry,heats up, run, on and on


You're a moron. This unit washes and dries. That's the whole point of it. Perhaps you should do some research before answering the question. the most likely cause is the water lever sensor.

LG all in one washer dryer fills with water on the drying cycle


the unit is made to bring water in in the drying cycle ,,the water dont touch the clothes..the water is to take the lint away and to cool the drum,,you must remember that you can was 22 pounds but you can only dry 11 pound..so you must dry about half of what you wash..and drying the 11 pounds it will take 3 to 4 hours,,no exhaust...

Heating, draining water(enough?) but not drying clothes, they're just HOT, so is top of machine


You have a problem with the condensing duct.  Possibly clogged with excess and lint and needs to be cleaned out.  This requires disassembly of the unit to get to it.  Not a difficult job but not easy.
