Your lint fllter should be readily accessible and should be cleaned before each cycle. If this has been building up for a whle, I highly recommend cleaning the interior of the dryer. This requires removing the front panel and vacuuming the lint out of the machine.
Be careful not to touch any of the heating elements with the vac.
Also it is a good idea to clean the exhaust vent periodically. Detach the flex connection from the machine and check that it's not plugged as well. Hope this gets things dryin' again.
Let us know if you need further details.

LG Dryer low heat doesn't work


It may be as simple as checking your lint filter.
If you use fabric softeners sheets, they tend to clog the lint filter holes. Washing it with soap and water will restore it back to normal and will allow the circulation that the dryer needs to properly dry your clothes.

Dryer Model LER3624JQ0 tumbles clothes, has heat, but clothes are hot and damp. Cleaned lint filter & took of vent in back (thought maybe clogged wall vent) but didn't help. Don't think much (if any)...


Hi,

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.

My dryer keeps saying Lint Filter Problems and cutting off however the lint filter is clean. Because of this issue I the dryer will not stay on long enough to actually dry the clothes. It continuously...


try two things. first, run it empty without the lint filter installed. if it gives you the same error message, install the filter, but disconnect the flexible duct connected to the back of the dryer. try it again. if it still wont work, you will have to get it serviced and cleaned out. if it works with the ducting removed from the back, your dryer duct is clogged up. check your yellow pages for dryer duct cleaning. The lint filter error message is just your machines way of saying it is not getting enough air flow. It can be caused by a clogged duct also.

Ijwant to dry my cloth but when i turn on it appear check filter how i am going to fix


You should empty the lint filter. The lint filter catches all the lint from your clothes and will need cleaned occassionally. I clean my lint filter after every load. Towels usually clog the filter faster than other clothes.

My dryer is not drying the clothes. It is a self venting dryer and I clean the filter everytime but the clothes are not drying. The filter light keeps flashing and I think the dryer is turning off.


check the out side vent and make sure that it is not blocked with lint also make sure that the ducting is not kinked or has to many curves in it that will hamper the effects of proper drying

My kenmore 80 series dryer doesn't dry. What should I check? It runs fine and heats up but the clothes are still wet


Whnn a dryer is hot but does not dry the clothes it is a very good indication that the dryer vent, ducting and or internal air passages are clogged with lint build up. Also if you use dryer sheets the lint filter itself can appear clean but actually be clogged up with the softener material from the dryer sheets.

Clean all of the air ducts and passages with a crevice tool. Pull the lint filter and clean UNDER and around the lint filter. Make sure to go outside and remove any lint build up from the vent flapper. Pull the lint filter and wash it with white wine vinegar and a soft brush on BOTH sides. For some of the hard to reach areas a folded un half coat hanger works great for losening lint in those areas. DO NOT use anything sharp.

The dryer needs loads of air moving through the ducts to work properly. You may feel air movement but it should be a very high volume air flow. After a good thorough cleaning your dryer should return to normal operation.

Thanks for using FixYa!
