Remove the trap and look in the hole and see what is keeping it from going in. If the screen is damaged, replace it.

Cleaning out the hole under the lint trap corrected our problem. We were having the worst time with broken straps, etc. Thanks to your answer we were able to fix our problem!! Awesome!

Lint trap doesn't sit right in dryer. It sticks up and clothes ge caught on edges., ripping clothes

Take the lint trap out, and look inside the slot where it goes. You will see a lot of built up lint which will have to be removed so you can slide the trap back down to the bottom.

My maytag 3.5 CU. FT. Front load washer #MHWE251YG won't drain. It keeps giving the error code F9 E1.I checked the drain hose at the back for clogs, cleaned out the drain pump catch, and the pump runs

Hello. You might STILL have a clog! Front load washers are notorious for getting slips, half slips, bras, undergarments, childrens' undergarments, baby socks, coins, keys, WHATEVER, caught between the spin basket and tub. This happens due to the pressure of the clothes pushing these items against the door and they get caught in the small gap between the spin basket and the rubber bellow at the front, getting pulled inside as the basket tumbles or spins. Then, under suction from the drain pump, they can get caught in the hose BEFORE the drain trap stops them. What *I* do is this: Get a bath towel and lay it across the control panel so that it covers the back edge. Pull the washer forward approx 2.5 to 3 feet. Lean it back so that it just rests against the wall(hence the need for the towel to prevent the wall from getting marred up). Any water inside will go back AWAY from the pump. Then you can open the pump and with a flashlight, look inside to see if there is anything stuck. KEEP IN MIND, THE PUMP MIGHT BE DAMAGED AND NOT REALLY SPINNING BUT JUST RATTLING/VIBRATING. I have seen MANY bra underwires cause this. You will have to put your finger in the hole in the side of the tube where the trap fits and spin the impeller. It should have a springy, smooth movement with no "scraping" noise. If you want to dis-assemble the pump, TURN OFF POWER FIRST, take pix as you go and/or draw a diagram for the screw locations. If you are unsure about any of this, call for service. The part number for the complete drain pump is W10130913.

If you take front of dryer off, there is a half moon shaped piece of felt on top of door opening that most likely has worn and leaves a gap between drum and where that felt is. Replace that for right drum fit.

Lint filter on LG DLEX2901V sticks up in the corner and catches clothes

Look familiar? LG dryer model DLEX3250W. Lint frame does not fit the slot anymore. NOT BECAUSE OF EXTRA LINT it's because the frame is warping.

Outside lint trap packed and broken

I would remove the outside vent cap, clean everything out and put in a new vent cap. Hope this helps.

Our dryer lint trap won't go down all the way and is catching our clothes -- ruining spaghettis straps, bras, etc., twisting everything and catching our clothes on the corner of the trap.

It may be backwards. But the first thing I would look for is if there is lint caught in the shute keeping it from going down all the way. If it is a newer model there is a lint screen sensor that may have come unattached and keeping the lint screen from going down all the way. Good luck.

Maxi Cosi Priori Shoulder strap folded and caught fast!!

Oh yes I have been there!

I am afraid it took me 2 days of brute force. You'll break before the clip does!
I recall using pliers..
