Check your lint filter and make sure it is not missing, broken, or faulty...otherwise you have to keep cleaning your discharge hose

    lint filter has been installed since dryer was installed, cleaning it before every use, see no damage to it. I guess it could be a poor design.

A curious question concerning the lint trap. When I took the back off the dryer and took off the section that houses the lint trap I found lint half way down the in this section along with what appears to...


I am a furnace repair guy by trade, but as far as I know there shouldn't be anything in the lint trap section, are you sure its insulation and not lint?

If you had lint going that far down the trap, you may have lint plugging up your line going out the house. If you have the flexible pipe with the rings on it going out the house. I would look into the cleaning out the vent line.

One test you can do yourself, run your dryer find the vent on the outside of the house and feel the air coming out, if its hesistant or slow coming out, your vent might plugged up. If you have lint hanging from the vent outside or on the ground. Definately look into getting your vent cleaned out.

How is the vent discharge air flow out the back of dryer? If not very strong check out lint trap cavity for blockage or obstuction causing lint to build up, blocking air flow from drum cavity. Once found a pocket comb that had got into lint trap housing and created a lint dam blocking air flow.

Dryer has heat but clothes are still wet we dryed a dog pillow that came open and the stuffing went all inside. we took the back off and the shoot for the lint trap but there was no more lint.


If your machine is running properly and you have heat as you say then you may have a clog in the main vent line from the dryer through your house.

Try running the dryer once with the vent hose disconnected. If it dries your know the clog is in the house's vent line. Unusual but it does happen if you have a lot of lint.

Check first at the immediate opening point in the wall there is often a 90 degree elbow where lint can trap.

The other place is the cover plate on the outside of your house. Some at are static and others have vents that open and close. Those too can trap lint and cause a problem.

If you know you have a clog in the house line somewhere but the opening and exit are not clogged then take a drain auger (same as used to clear a clogged toilet) and run it through. If you don't have one try your garden hose.

Good luck.

Please rate if this gives you some direction.

I dropped a ring into the lint trap while the trap was out; how can I retrieve the ring?


if the lint screen is on top you need to take the lint trap out remove the 2 screws. now go to the back panel remove all the screws out of it and take it off make sure you have unpluged it from the wall and removed the exsaust. now to the left you will see the blower housing remove the screws i believe there are three or four and they are located at the bottom of the blower houseing. pull the blower away from the bulkhead and you will see what you have dropped. let me know how it goes.

Plugged venting causing low heat and poor lint output?


you need to check the dryer vent hole on the back of the dryer,make sure it's not blocked,also check the wall vent for the same thing,most of the time if there is a clogg it holds the moisture in the dryer and it take forever to dry,you can use a shop vac to **** out any clogged lint in dryer and wall ,then if you have a leaf blower put it on the wall side and blow it it all out.let me know how you do-mike

Auto sensing dry cycle not working.


if you open the door of the dryer you can take out the screws for the lint trap assembly, the two metal strips on this are for the sensor . when you take the three screws out from the inside the trap should pull away easily. there should be two wires on the back of this if not there will be two male connector there (on the right side). so if there are not two wire attached you will have to remove the lower metal pannel on the front of the dryer., it is held on by two 1/4" head srews ,one in each corner. with that off you should see two wires hanging there with plastic covering the female end connectors, just feed them up the lint trap an plug them in. that should fix the sensor. but while you have the bottom cover off you should give it a good cleaning with a shop vac. and take the three screws out of the black lint duct(its right in front going from the center down to the right) there is also a small tab you will have to open. the duct fan is behind this give it a good cleaning two and it should work alot better for you. i hope this helps please let me know
