Question about LG Dryers

1 Answer

LG TROMM DLE7177RM Dryer: when I turn power on it says Clean Filter, filter is clean. when I select settings and turn dryer on it says simultaneously ''DRY'' flashing and ''COOLING'' on -- it ends up taking about 3 hours to dry a load. I've read the manual but can't find anywhere what this could be. I have unplugged the dryer for 30 minutes to reset the control board; however, this had no affect. I have unhooked the vent from the wall to see if there is good air flow, and there does appear to be adequate ventilation. Any help would be appreciated.

Ah you unhooked it from the wall, but did you go outside and see if air flow was adequate outside. Quite often flexable hoses and duct work get plugged with lint. If that is the case be glad your dryer had pleanty of safetys. If you start it briefly with the hose disconnected, do you get the dry light flashings? Metal duct work all the way outside is best.

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.

I have a lg tromm dle2514 dryer and the check filter light is on. I am willing to clean it (I've already cleaned the front filter area) I just have no idea where there is another filter


Hi,
There is no other filter to clean other then the one lint filter.
I would check the dryer vent to make sure it's not restricted with lint build up or has any kinks in it. Also check the outside flapper at the end of the dryer vent to make sure it's clear of lint and able to open all the way.
If your dryer vent is ok and the lint screen is clean then I would remove the front of the dryer and check the blower/fan housing for lint build up.

LG Tromm dryer says clean filter and won't run. Filter is clean.


CHECK YOUR HOUSE VENTING. MANNY TIMES IF THE EXAUST AIR IS NOT GOING OUTSIDE FAST ENOUGH IT WILL GIVE YOU THE SAME ERROR.
