Clean the lint screen/filter before or after drying each load of clothes. If clothing is still damp at the end of a typical drying cycle or drying requires longer times than normal, this may be a sign that the lint screen or the exhaust duct is blocked.

Please don't forget to rate or accept the solution.

SOURCE: Need to move the dryer vent on LG DLE5955 to the side opening.

Knocking out a plug in the dryer, taking ducting loose, moving it around, putting in some new pieces, etc.,etc. Mostly mechanical stuff -- not a teriffically difficult job. Would help to be handy, though.

I had the same prob. and got this from LG:

Dear James,

Thank you for contacting LG. We are delighted to hear from you as our Valued Customer. I sincerely apologize for the delay and any inconvenience you are going through with your unit.

I will be more than glad to assist you.

When the venting is just installed, in order to see the correct result in the vent testing option of your unit, is necessary to wait for 2-3 full cycles.

If after this period of time, the correct results do not appear, please contact us back via e-mail or call our Customer Service Department

If you have other questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us again either via email, or by calling our customer service division at 800-243-0000 at your convenience.

Link is stuck in under the lint filter causing sensor on and wash taking 2-3 hours to dry

I believe your problem is not with the lint under the filter but with the exhaust vent in the wall being heavily restricted. The best way to test is to disconnect the exhaust vent from the wall and run a normal load. If it dries normally, you will need to have your exhaust vent professionally cleaned.
Good luck

My dryer is making a beeping noise while running. I stop it to check filter like it says and the filter is clean, then the dryer will not start and I have to turn it completely off to start it again

This happens on these if there is enough lent in the vent line as well. The excess buildup of the lint will decrease the airflow and cause the sensor to trip a trouble code. Try cleaning out your line and see if that doesn't help. Good luck.

Items in dryer are not quite dry, cool down cycle is real short, heat is maintained in dryer when it stops and wrinkles clothes. Cool down cycle went from 4 minutes down to one, skipping 3 and 2. Same...

check and make sure it has a clear clean kinks in vent hose.if yours vents thru roof then you may want a chimney sweep to come and sweep your vent out.if it goes thru a wall check and make sure know blockage.
