Question about Dryers

Several cycles to dry clothes

LG tromm gas dryer. Filter is clean, duct work is clear. It is a long run of duct, cleared as much as possible. Looked inside while running. The glow comes on but gas doesn't ignite. However, it does not happen every time. It will work for a few loads, then back to same problem. Check filter light comes on also.

Rafbx in looking this complain over I got to thinking. You said the filter is clean. Have you tried running water over the filter to see if it will go thru? If not give that a try. Slow steady stream of water then put the filter under the water. It should go straight thru. If not then wash the filter with some detergent until the water goes straight thru. I have seen this before. Give it a try, you may be suprised.

Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum.
Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance.

Dryer will not dry clothes


Hello. Unplug your dryer. Remove your vent duct hose and, holding it like a "U", take it outside and clean it out. While the duct is removed, inspect the dryer exhaust (where it goes into the duct) and the other end (where it passes through the wall). Clean and remove any debris that you find. Remove the lint filter and check for debris in this cavity as well. If you find and clear any debris, this may get you drying better.
There are other things that might be at issue, but this is the most common and most easily repairable. Please repost after giving this a whirl.....Operators are standing by!!!!

My LG Tromm dryer is taking two cycles to dry clothes. They are just not drying completely with one cycle.


make sure that the vent system is clear all the way to the outside. I've seen bird nest in these vents as well as just plain lint build up.
You should feel alot of air coming out when the dryer is running.

LG Tromm dryer now takes two cycles to dry a load


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.
