    I have had the same problem. I ordered a new lint filter on line 2 months ago only had my machine for 4 months and am now having the same problem again with the one I just bought. It is a cheap cheap thin plastic that doesnt hold up to the heat. I paid $50 for a new one to now have the same problem again. I am disgusted with the quality!!!

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.

Front left speaker in my toyota 2003 sienna make brrbrrr sound, looks like a cloth kind of material inside the speaker tore or womrthing. anyone has any idea how to fix it?

torn or damaged speaker material means replace the speaker as it is pressed into shape for the speaker action to produce sound waves. Replacement speakers come in a water resistant material that will last a long time and not tear.

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...

Front end makes noise when turning. Could this be tire rods or axle problem. I had motor mounts replaced when the mounts went bad could this the moving motor cause damage to front wheel area?

yes, popping when turning is usually caused by worn out CV joints in axles. Check for torn CV boots. When a boot tears, dirt gets into the joint a wears it prematurely. If you find tears, it is easiest to replace the whole half-axle than to fix the CV. Let me know if you have more questions.

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.

Kenmore washer won't spin unless you help it get started

Replace the brake on the transmission shaft. It is binding. While you have it torn down replace the direct drive coupling also.

LG FRont Load Washer Dryer WD-1256RD filling up with lint

If you have not done it already, replace the lint filter. Follow instructions on manual. The lint filter access should be on front side of machine.

Other users had same problem on this model, I quote:
"I've only had it 2 weeks so far. It seems to be collecting lint/fluff all around the rubber door lining"
Source here.

Sometimes there may be too much lint if you use excessive softener and detergent.
