We purchased our Neptune washer and dryer in may of 2005.We have not had any problems, but I noticed the lint tray housing is poorly designed. It allows a lot of lint to get by the screen and into the the centrifugal exhaust fan. I vacuum it out all the time,but it's a pain. I'm very handy and have worked on it a little, but it still gets by. Any suggestions?? Please help!!!! Thanks BILL

The problem might not be with the dryer, but with the washer. Let me explain.
When I first got my LG w/d set, I did a web search, and found that front load washers tend to build up bacteria and mold(which one person said was staining her clothes). The solution was to leave the door of the washer open when not in use.
That worked for me for the most part, but the musty smell persisted. I found that the soap tray was getting dirty(from mold/bacteria), and the area inside was even worse. So now I remove the soap tray when not using the washer.
Also, some appliance stores have cleaning packs that dissolve in an empty washer load. They are supposed to clean out residue and kill bacteria that cause odor in "HE" washers that may only be noticeable from the dryer. The brand name of the product I have is "Washer Fresh", and they're about $12 for 6 "PowerPacs".
please check your exhaust vent, where the dryer air comes out of the house, this particular pattern is very indicitive of a slow moving exhaust, you may need to clean the duct between the machine and exhaust as well
Remove back (many screws)
Clean lint from interior & Vent Chute
check for breakage & parts on dryer floor
check for burn damage (wires burned off or char)
if no burn or char:
could be the "Dryer Coil" itself broke or
a "Snap Disc" usually mounted on the coil housing.
Very Serious!!!! Replace only!!!! Do not ever bypass!!!!
Stay clear of dryer for test start
Be ready to shut it down fast in case of problems
Always replace back & vent chute
http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php This will show you how your dryer is put together. The lint has gone directly to the fan, where it could affect fan performance. You would have to remove the front off the dryer, and the cover off the fan area. It's not a bad idea to clean this area once in a while.
HI bob. thanks for your question. look at your lint filter. if its torn replace the screen. its the only way to stop lint . and clean the venting to the outside, thanks the appliance doc. please rate my answer. thanks
SHUT OFF THE BREAKER to the unit then open the panel (3 Screws) that is in between the washer and Dryer you will see your venting hose ther remove the flex vent pipe from the exh duct closes Turn back on the pwr and run a load in the dryer see if it drys ok if you wil need your vent to the outside cleaned out
