Question about Whirlpool LGQ9858P Gas Dryer

Lint CollectorModel LGL88580000- Built: 1995.

There is no air coming in or out of the area where the lint collector hole is. My repairman said it didn't matter if no lint collected in the lint box on top of the dryer. He checked everything and said the air flow was good. However, I don't use anything unless it all works correctly and this is not right. Up until three weeks ago, I collected lots of lint in this box.

In the customer book on this dryer it suggests I call a repairman for assitance if no lint collects in the box,. Well, I am back to square one here!

    Initially worked well. Then lint did not collect any more. I found lint inside machine. Looks like lint clogs the air path. It is hard to clean deep inside.
    You need to open back of machine and clear around and inside air exit and inside diagonal "pipe" and inside its hidden path inside it.
    After cleaning machine worked OK for 6 months but happened again.

Every 12 months, since we bought our lgl8858000 we had to call a repairman because no lint was appearing in trap. Everytime the repairman has to take the machine apart and clearout lint (hand fulls) from within the machine. This last time it cost us $140. This is the last time I will be paying someone to clear lint from our fire trap.

You can check for suction by pulling out the lint screen and holding a piece of paper over it while the dryer is running. If there is suction then it all works correctly. If there is no suction, then there is a clog somewhere inside. You can clear the clog with a long bottle brush or with an attachment from a vacuum cleaner to get inside. If all looks good and still no lint on the screen, the screen may be too short for the dryer and could be a wrong screen for it.

My WGD9200SQ0 gas dryer lights up in beginning for about 2 minuets then flame goes out and does not relight. What's the problem? Coils been replaced

Dryers usually have interlocks to keep things from overheating or, worse, catching on fire. You may be able to narrow it down a bit by seeing if it matters whether there are any clothes in the dryer. Most likely, the dryer thinks it's overheating, or in danger of doing so. Couple of possibilities. For anything involving disassembly or hands into any part of the dryer but the clothes tumbler, make sure you unplug the dryer and turn off the gas. No short cuts there, you can kill yourself.
  • Exhaust vent is clogged, no exit for hot damp air, too much back pressure on fan. Undo hose clamp in back. Clean lint from hose, reachable area in back of dryer, and in wall. Check outside as well, if the vent goes under your house or anywhere but right through the wall. Make sure the outside vent isn't blocked, jammed, or clogged. Some folks religiously clean their lint screen, but let the vent accumulate stuff for years.
  • Air inlet is clogged. Laundry looms accumulate lint. Sometimes that can end up drawn back into the air inlets. Make sure vent through-holes in back are clean and unblocked.
  • If you unscrew the back panel, look at the air inlet to the burner area (careful if it was just on) and clear lint.
  • The output blower motor can get clogged with lint and not actually move air anymore. You may have to do a bit more disassembly - probably a few more 1/4" hex head screws to open the fan assembly that feeds to the outlet duct. You may see a ton of lint built up between the blades. Remove it with fingers, vacuum cleaner, canned air, or the like. That will also likely help a bit.
  • There are actual sensors. You'll need to look at a DIY list for how to check them with a voltmeter, but they'll fail from time to time and trip an interlock - most dryers, for safety, are built to assume the worst if one of the sensors fails, to make sure a sensor failure doesn't lead to destroyed clothes or fires.
Good Luck!

Where is the lint collector on LG 7.5g model WD 1049C Front Loader washing machine.

The combo washer/dryer doesn't have a lint collector. Air is circulated through a condensate tube and is washed down during each drying cycle.

The dryer is heating but clothes aren't drying. There isn't much lint on the filter and the inside door and lint area is damp with wet lint spread around that area. It is a MDE5500AY model. Serial...

This just happened to us a couple of weeks ago, and we called a repair man. I might be able to save you $45 for a service call. In our dryer, the lint can fall out of the lint screen and clog up in the back of the dryer. Remove the back of the dryer (you might have to unscrew the lint screen too) and the ductwork inside the back (it's quite easy, I've now done it since my daughter dropped my sunglasses down the lint screen hole) just keep an eye on your screws. Remove the trapped lint, and vaccum out the hose, making sure there's no kinks in the hose as it runs to your house exhaust. Put the dryer back together and see if it works. If not, you've got a fan problem and will need a repairman. But apparently this is the most common dryer problem and will take about 20 minutes of your time to straighten out.

How do I removethe lint? Clothes are coming out with fluff...

Sorry for the obvious.....
Fluff on the cloths is from the lint trap not capturing it from the air flow.
Air is passed into the clothes from the laundry room. It is heated and then passed over the clothes... then filtered air is forwarded to the outside exhaust.

If you are seeing lint on your clothes, then the air coming in from your laundry area is not lint free.
1. check the back/bottom of the dryer for lint accumulation.
2. Remove the lint trap and clean out the duct work.
3. Inspect all the flooring and areas around the dryer for dust/lint - and clean any that you find.

I believe that you will then have a clean and dry load.
The proceedure of cleaning described above should be repeated every 6 months or so....

squished vent hose behind dryer, then clogged vent, then dirty lint filter, then lint built up inside dryer because of vent issue, after fixing vent issue, remove lint from inside blower area filter area etc.

Lint Filter Light comes on and cycle is interupted

Depending on how old this is or how much it is used depends how much lint has built up inside
the air flow tube. I have seen where you look inside where the lint screen is and beneath it with screen removed there is nothing but lint, in which case the dryer thinks the screen is clogged. You might have two screws on the inside of the drum that hold the screen holder in place. First remove the lint screen
and hold the little door that closes when you remove the screen, open the little door and look down inside it with a flash light, if you see a lot of lint, like I said you might be able to remove the holder
and clean this area out, also take a coat hanger and bend a little piece at the end and use this to get most of the lint out of this area and the tube that Leeds down from this area. If this can be done
and you get this area clean and it still happens, you might have to clean the entire area the tube
and the back tube,the tube leeding to the outside of the house and vent. Any questions please post back.
