LG Dryer takes too long to dry clothes

Sure the outside vent is not clogged up? If so it will overheat and turn it self off and do a poor job of drying the clothes.

Also check and make sure that all of the heating elements are working properly.

Long dry times are usually always caused by poor air flow. Check the venting all the way from back of dryer all the way to where it goes outdoors,also for lint build up in tube where vent connects to on back of the dryer

Lg gas dryer has heat and is venting properly but clothes take 2-3 cycles to dry compared to before single cycles.


If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

LG DL2610 model does not dry, it turns on properly

Check your vent. Make sure there is a strong flow of air out the outside vent cap. If not, your dryer is not able to get rid of the moisture. Check for lint build up inside vent piping and for crushed flex vent pipe behind dryer which would obstruct air flow.

Drying timer on auto dry

I called LG...they said to unplug the dryer for 5 min. to reset the timer ...this solved the problem.
They also said not to use dryer sheets during the sensor dry cycle as the coating on the dryer sheets causes the sensor to malfunction as it can't read the humidity level in the dryer.

Dryer LG 6DTD3120

You should change it back to regular gas the problem is in pressure reg gas come to your home at much greater pressure then propane that's why it takes longer to dry the other thing is to keep your lint trap clean because it can affect drying once in while blow out lint hose as well
