My kenmore elite dryer that i bought 2 years ago lint trap corner is catching my clothes and tearing them. we had it replaced and its doing it again. I am tired of messing with it. Please help.

don't know if you already had this fixed,usually this is caused by not having your dryer cleaned out,the lint builds up inside the duct that the lint filter slides down into and has to be removed and cleaned out.also in some of the kenmore dryer ducts there's a metal clip inside the duct that can come loose and hold the lint filter up.these are the two most likely causes for this to happen.

Does anyone know of a fix for this problem the **** thing worked fine yesterday

It sounds like you have a simple fix. The most likely problem is that you have a blown thermal fuse.
Remove the lower panel, remove the lint filter from its housing, then remove the housing itself. It's a diamond shaped WHITE component on the duct work behind the lint filter housing. It will Usually have two blue wires on it.
This fuse usually blows due to an exhaust problem. Lint build up, too long, kinked, pinched or otherwise compromising air flow. Check the internal duct and the external duct to be sure it is clear.
Here is the part you need to order.

The part comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

Thank you for using FixYa!

Any substitute for the wool pad filter that goes behind the filter in the Haier HLP140E dryer? Filters are $6 + shipping and they seem to last only a couple months. Any suggestions on how to clean? I know...

I don't have a substitute but I do find using tape rollers which I buy in bulk from Costco do clean the filter fairly well. You do have to use several sheets but it saves on wear and tear of washing it and less time waiting for it to dry as well.

A repair "tech" came to

I would think that it would be the lint filter or filter screen... Either way, unfortunately, most manufacturers regard this as a consumable ( non warrantable) part as its life depends on how often you use the machine and how often you clean the filter.. Im not really conversant with US sold F and P product but perhaps on the internet , there may be further info on the model you have. I beleive that F and P ( Fisher and Paykel) New Zealand, joined Whirlpool in USA ??? Perhaps, the machine you have may actually be a Whirlpool...

F @ P DEGX2 lint trap problem

If you are collecting more on the outside of the house means the lint filter has a tear in it and the lint in being pulled through the tear and pushed out the exhaust. It sounds like you need a new filter but this isn't cheap. If you do it your self it will run about $70 if you get a repair man it will cost about $150.

GE Harmony Dryer dries fine one time won't quit sensing the next

The thermostatic fuse is getting hot during the run cycle and then staying open until the dryer cools down completely.

You may fix just by cleaning out the entire dryer. Remove the top cover and vacuum out thoroughly. Replace a torn lint screen and make sure your exhaust conduit is not leaking lint everywhere.

If you can't fix by cleaning, you will have to replace the thermostat which is a $5 part byt a $100 repair.

Bosch axxis WTL lint indicator problem.

I have been struggling with this lint filter problem big-time. After reading the previous user's comment that his mesh holes had become clogged, I took a closer look at my filter and noticed that the tiny holes in the mesh were, indeed, clogged up. In fact, when I initially ran water on the filter it pooled up on the mesh like a solid plate...pretty good sign that air wasn't able to pass through the filter properly.

I used a soft toothbrush and soap to clean the filter, and when I ran water to rinse it off it the water passed right through the mesh. I popped it back in and, voila...That fixed it!!
