Question about Dryers
This just started happening last week. The dryer is taking longer to dry clothes. This is the LG TROMM DLG5988w. The lint is cleared from the trap regularly. Any advice would be appreciated.
The problem with the LG tromm dryers are seemingly two fold.
1. The dryer stops heating and drying the cloths. I found out AFTER HAVING IT SERVICED TWICE AND WAITING A MONTH FOR A NON ESSENTIAL PART. The problem turned out to be the dryer vent going from the wall to the outside was severly clogged. Once this was corrected the dryer worked great.
2. The second issue probably is a design issue in that a large amount of lint seems to get by the lint filter and ends up in the vent that the dryer is connected to and goes out side the house. In my case I have a long dryer vent imbeded into the wall to the exterior, in a shorter vent this probably wouldn't be an issue.

First, check that you are getting 220 volts to the unit. Some will partly work on 110. Turn BOTH breakers off and back on. Check all connections from breakers to unit. Is the air outlet jammed? Then, look at the thermostat. Has the washer spun the clothes as dry as before?

Rob, sounds like you're on the right track. The other things that could be bad is part of the heater coil is out or, less likely, that you have thermostat or high limit switch issues. These will likely require a service person to resolve. Good luck, sir.
