Since moisture has gotten inside the machine, it has probably shorted something out to control the element, or the element itself is shorted, or if it is gas, has the pilot light been extinguished?

Dryer runs warm but never gets hot enough to dry fully


  • sounds like yo may have a restriction in your vent line. Check outside vent and see if you are getting a real good warm air flow coming out If not, check to be sure outside vent is not blocked and also see if the hose behind the dryer is kinked as that will cut down the ability for the dampness to escape out to the outside.

Why is water in the dryer vent line


There can be multiple reasons for this. If the vent line exhausts to the outside, it is possible that if the vent louvers are stuck open and rain may enter the line when windblown. More common is that dryer vent air is hot and moist due to the water being evaporated from the clothes. If the vent line runs through a cool/cold area, condensation may form in the vent line. If there are sags in the line, condensed water can accumulate in these places.

Lg dryer check filter light wont stop blinking and the dryer wont work


You may have a clogged vent line.
Which will cause the check filter light to go on sometimes.
If the air is not getting out the vent and is blocked the sensor thinks the filter is clogged.
And you will not get heat either.
Check that the flexible vent line behind the dryer is not kinked or crushed.
A simple way to check if the vent line leading out from the dryer to the out side of the house is clogged is to remove the vent line from the rear of the dryer.
If the dryer gets hot when the vent line is removed, then the clog is between there and the outside vent door.
sometimes the little door outside the house gets stuck closed due to lint build up.
Or anything can be in the vent going into wall too.

My check filter light is on, the buzzer wont work but it is still drying


Hi

The electronic display on an LG dryer includes a "Check Filter" warning light. The light is primarily for convenience and does not indicate a major malfunction.

You may have a clogged vent line which will cause the check filter light to go on sometimes. If the air is not getting out the vent and is blocked the sensor thinks the filter is clogged. And you will not get heat either. Check that the flexible vent line behind the dryer is not kinked or crushed. A simple way to check if the vent line leading out from the dryer to the outside of the house is clogged is to remove the vent line from the rear of the dryer. If the dryer gets hot when the vent line is removed, then the clog is between there and the outside vent door. sometimes the little door outside the house gets stuck closed due to lint build up. Or anything can be in the vent going into wall too.

if the lint is damp then the air isn't moving out the vent line,unplug the dryer, go outside and make sure the hood is clear, then go back inside and remove the vent line from the back of the dryer,if the vent line is long i use a leaf blower to blow out the line,just stick it into the vent line and blow it so all the lint will go outside,if you could have someone watch the outside and they can let you know when the line is clear,also the duct that the lint filter slides into should be cleaned out and you should vacuum out where the motor is,you have an open flame inside the dryer and the lint can and will catch fire if it's not cleaned out,i do this to my dryer once a year,the clothes dry on time,no fires and the parts in the dryer last longer from being cleaned and the dryer isn't overheating and damaging the motor and other parts from running to hot.let me know how you make out

Dryer is hot to the touch after cycling off


If its the top of the dryer then the problem is with your venting. Run the dryer and go outside check to see if you have any airflow. If you dont feel strong airflow then replace or clean your vent line. This can lead to blown hi limit fuses if the problem is not corrected.

Hope this helps _MJ_

Dyer really hot, not drying clothes


Is the dryer tumbling? If not, you may have a broken belt or some other drive assembly issue.

Also, turn the dryer on and go outside to the vent discharge - you should feel air coming out at a pretty good clip. If not, the vent line is obstructed and will need to be cleaned out.

When it gets hot it stop and then start again when cooled down


This problem is usually caused from restrictions in the vent hose and the unit getting to hot causing the limit control to shut down until it cools. Check your filter, your dryer vent line for obstructions and the outside for pieces of lint plugging it and slowing the air flow. I have found lint build up in the line, at the base of the dryer where the exhaust line connects, and in the exhaust mounted on the outside wall.
