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.

My dryer runs and heats but seems like no air is being blown. It should have some sort of a blower correct? Taking 2 cycles to get dry and vent is not clogged, but not sure about lint trap slot.


First, of course, make sure ALL the airways are clear, including the area around the lint filter, and the outside vent - lint likes to stick to the outside vent flap, so make sure you clean that off too, and that it opens and closes freely.

Here's how to get the dryer apart

There is a blower wheel, but it's powered by the same motor and belt which turns the drum. So if your drum is turning, the blower wheel should be turning, too. If not, you may have to replace the blower wheel. Here a link showing how to do so:

I think something got passed the filter into the blower wheel (read some of the other questions and believe this is it; check filter light on and a burning smell was there when I tried to run it). I...

Dryer is heating but not blowing air


when was the last time you cleaned the dryer?try removing the vent line from the back of dryer to see if any air is blowing out,also is the dryer noisy?you could have a bad blower wheel.you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into and behind that duct you'll find the blower wheel,also vac out the dryer where the motor is and if the vent line is a long run from the back of dryer to the outside i use a leaf blower to blow it out,make sure the outside vent isn't blocked with anything before you blow the vent line out,send model number if you need help getting the blower wheel part number if that's your problem,you should clean the dryer at least once a year so you don't have a fire,good luck

My dryer is taking forever to dry clothes. Very damp and a lot of condensation when I open the dryer. It's model # MDE508DAYW


Good day,
Sounds like the vent system is badly blocked, the blower wheel has stripped off it's shaft, or there is a lot of lint in the blower wheel/lint screen area.
1. Remove the vent hose and see if your getting air moving thru smarty. Maytag moves a lot of air. If O.K. test dryer with vent off for performance. Clean or replace vent hose as needed.
2. Blower wheel sheared on it's shaft. You have to remove the front panel to see if the wheel is loose. Old version had 2 screws on the bottom of the front panel. Remove, disconnect door switch wires and remove. New style (no screws on bottom) requires a putty knife forced on each corner of where the top meets the front. About an 1 1/2 inch in from the edge. Force in, releasing clip, and pulling the top of the front panel toward you. Lift off.

Should the blower wheel be bad, replace but make sure the area between the blower wheel and door filter are cleaned.

Why doesn't my LG Dryer not dry clothes well?


Sometimes blower wheels will get loose in dryers. Sometimes they will get a whole lump of lint in them or you can hear a rattling noise in the dryer, this is the blower wheel, its worn out and it can cause the fuse to blow too,or it can half *** work and take fifty forever's to dry the clothes.Or it could be just that the dryer needs a good blowing out .I use a lawn blower to get all the lint out of the dryer as well as the vent pipe and vent to outside. I take the filter HOUSING out and wash it also. That is, I remove the housing and clean is good! Making sure that the dryer is properly flowing air is a good thing!

How do i get to my fuses on my dryer mod # 110.65942400?


take the bottom panel off,you'll see the blower wheel duct,take it off,clean all the lint out of it and vac the dryer,go outside and check the vent,now you'll see the thermal fuse on the top of the blower wheel housing part 3392519, you'll need a 1/4 size socket to get the two screws out, when you get it running go outside and make sure the flapper is blowing wide open if not you have to blow out the vent line,you can use a leaf blower if it's a long vent line

Dryer goes with 3-4 cycles to dry load of clothes


unplug the dryer.
Open the top lid.
Remove the front panel.
Inspect the blower wheel attached to the motor.
If it moves on the motor shaft replace it.
If iy does not move on the motor shaft, clean the lint out of the exhaust from the blower wheel to the rear of the dryer.
