LG Tromm DLE8377NM check filter but filter is clean


You say lint hose is disconnected. Are you referring to the exhaust vent to the outside? I would suspect this vent is clogged or a vent flapper outside may be stuck shut.

My dryer does not heat. Clothes do not dry.


Pull the dryer out away from the wall. Unhook the vent from the dryer completely. Do not put anything over the dryer exhaust on the back of the dryer. Do a normal load with the vent unhooked. If it dries better or ok like this then the problem is in the dryer venting. Like a blocked vent pipe or a smashed or restricted vent hose. If the vent doesn't make a difference, then check the blower wheel for excessive lint build up, check that there isn't anything stuck to the air intake baffle inside the drum, (i.e. the screen on the back wall of the dryer when looking into the drum). Check the lint filter chute for blockage. Check that the heating element isn't shorted to ground. Check the exhaust temperature of the dryer. A meat or pocket thermometer can be used for this. It should cycle approx between 120 degrees and 160 degrees ( without clothes ). Check that the drum seals are not worn out.

My dryer does takes ages to dry clothes and then not completely. In addition any string item like bikinis will be torn .


check to see if exhaust vent is cloged with lint, both behind dryer and outside. this should give you more air flow.

Not drying clothes


If the unit is heating properly which it should pull around 25 amps when heating , and the unit is tumbling it is 100% an exhaust issue , either a kinked duct behind the unit , a ball of lint stuck in the duct , lint build up outside in vent , or water in under ground duct. If you find the clog it will be FIXED!
Let me know if you have any other questions.

TIMMER RUNNING BUT NOTHING DRY


Q - Dryer takes too long to dry or multiple times to dry a load

A1- Pull the dryer out away from the wall. Unhook the vent from the dryer completely. Do not put anything over the dryer exhaust on the back of the dryer. Do a normal load with the vent unhooked. If it dries better or ok like this then the problem is in the dryer venting. Like a blocked vent pipe or a smashed or restricted vent hose.
A2 - If the vent  doesn't make a difference, then check the blower wheel for excessive lint build up, check that there isn't anything stuck to the air intake baffle inside the drum, (i.e. the screen on the back wall of the dryer when looking into the drum). Check the lint filter chute for blockage. Check that the heating element isn't shorted to ground. Check the exhaust temperature of the dryer. A meat orpocket  thermometer can be used for this. It should cycle approx between 120 degrees and 160 degrees ( without clothes ). Check that the drum seals are not worn out.

Lint is stuck in the back of dryer


Un plug the dryer, disconnect the vent and reach in the hole and pull the lint out. Put a bag on the end or somthing to catch the lint. Turn on the dryer and blow the lint out. This is a pretty good indictor that you vents on the house are clogged. Maybe time to get them cleaned. thanks Dave www.washermd.com

Electric dryer shutting off


most likely cause is the air duct is blocked with lint, some always gets past the screen and builts up in the exhaoust line. not enough air flow, the air gets hotter than normal and trips the over temperature cutout.
for most dryers
clear the fan, and exhaust ducting all the way to the wall, and the outside vent hood, of lint

Clothing cord stuck in drum


You should be able to get the draw string completely out by trying to open the top of the dryer which may be hinged. The front of the dryer may open by prying at the front between the top and the front.
Depending on your model there should be some means of getting into the dryer to examine what is doing it. Just make sure you SHUT OFF THE POWER OR PULL THE PLUG BEFORE WORKING ON IT. SAFETY FIRST!
