Clean the vent all the way to the outside.
The dryer will take 4-5 loads to reset the filter sensor.

Mahe sure the vent is not smashed behind the dryer.

The blower motors on these dryers can be packed with lint. It is a fire hazard. The entire front of the dryer has to be removed.

SOURCE: The dryer does not heat.

It is possible the over temp snap switch could be bad, but also they were in the right direction with an air flow problem too. The duct needs not to be restricted, and you must verify the blower fan is in good condition, turning, and also free of debris.

Dryer starts about 45 seconds into the cycle lights come on and then it starts beeping like the end of the cycle. 10 seconds later off. Very warm on top of the machine.


See my tip for buzzing dryer. Check Owner's manual, Troubleshooting. Sounds like air is not moveing and High temp cut off saftey switch doesn't like the lack of air flow. Duct clean? Check air flow from the outdoor vent. Clean vent tube/s

Always air filter clean


If the light comes on after it\'s started its cycle, that sounds like your dryer actually has a sensor in it (my dryer just has a fake light to remind you to clean the filter, but there\'s no sensor).

Either there\'s debris accumulated inside that\'s blocked the sensor (it\'s working correctly), or the sensor itself has failed (part repair).

It\'s possible your filter itself isn\'t letting enough air pass through any more. Do a quick test: run the dryer with the filter out and see if the light still comes on.

If the light still comes on, see if you can remove some lint from the dryer. Remove the filter and get a vacuum nozzle in as far as you can to try to suck out any lint that got past the filter.

Also check the exhaust. How recently was your dryer duct cleaned? Could it be clogged? Disconnect the exhaust from the wall and inspect the pipe. If you see a *lot* of lint and dust it should probably be cleaned. It\'s not expensive - call a duct cleaning company and ask them to clean your dryer duct and nothing else. No addons, no extended service plan, nothing - just clean the duct.

By now you\'ve checked the air going in and the air going out. If it still continues this behaviour I would look at the sensor itself. It\'s almost certainly cheaper in the long run to call in a repair person for that.

My lg 2240 clean filter light blinks even though the filter is clean. when started it runs for 3 to 4 seconds then shuts off. if you wait for about a minute it will start again then shut off after 3 to 4...


This problem usually is caused by a restricted or blocked vent. The filter itself can be clean, but the duct work in the dryer after the filter, or the vent hose attached to the dryer, or the exhaust door attached to that hose is either restricted, plugged or blocked. Lint likes to build up in all areas the exhaust air goes, so check them all. The dryer has a sensor that will shut the dryer off if there is a restriction. Cleaning all of the duct work, from the filter all the way to where it exhausts outside, will usually solve this problem. An easy way to check is to unhook the exhaust hose from the dryer and run it. Does it keep running now? It is possible the sensor in the dryer has gone bad, but that is rare. 99% of the time it is lint build up in the venting.

The most common problem for a dryer to take more than one cycle to dry is restricted air flow.

1.when the dryer is running go outside and find where the venting is located, there should be a good amount of air flow.
2. if the air flow is not good look at the ducting coming from the back of the dryer and make sure it is not kinked or pushed back to far.
there is usually lint build up some where along the ducting or at the end of the duct where it vents to the outside.
3. if you have access to a leaf blower,this can be used to help clear any lint build up inside the duct from the dryer to the outside venting.
move your dryer out and take the leaf blower tube and stick it in the hole and turn it on.
the vented louvers need to be removed from the ouside of the house to allow the lint and things in the duct work to be blown out.

Electric dryer runs, drum turns, gets warm, cleaned out vent, but still not getting clothes dry.

Dryer says check filter and it is clean


Air flow in the duct work is restricted... and the dryer sensor thinks that the filter is clogged.

You will need to take a fluffy cleaning wand and, with the filter removed, try loosening up some of the accumulated line in the duct.

Next, remove the lint pipe from the wall connector and try cleaning it and the pipe for as much distance as you can reach.

Finally, go outside and check the vent. It needs to be clean and clear of obstructions... also, needs to close when the machine is off.
You can do testing on the outside vent with "air dry" setting - hot air is not required... Keep cleaning ductwork until the outside vent passes air freely.

After air flow is restored, the sensor in the "VENT" alarm will act nice.....and stay off

Dryer starts to work and then stops working after a few minutes


doesn't usually happen so quick but may be a blockage in the air duct. take top off. if i remember right, duct runs across the back to the dryer fan. check for lint build-up. if poor air flow, an overheat stat will cut off the dryer
