SOURCE: my front load samsung dryer destroyed my clothes

ours did the same thing and it was caused by lint build up in the track where the screen goes into. It was tough to vacuum out but I made a thin hose that would reach down to the bottom and scrape and vacuum out the hardened lint.

SOURCE: The lint filter does not fit properly in the lint

We have the same model and experience the same thing. The way I fix it is to remove the filter, then with a flash light I look down into the lint trap. You will notice that lint has built up in the track where the lint filter sits. I use a wooden skewer to run along the track and lift out the lent. Hope that helps

SOURCE: Our dryer lint trap won't go down all the way and

It may be backwards. But the first thing I would look for is if there is lint caught in the shute keeping it from going down all the way. If it is a newer model there is a lint screen sensor that may have come unattached and keeping the lint screen from going down all the way. Good luck.

SOURCE: lint trap doesnt fit in slot completely evenly

Remove the trap and look in the hole and see what is keeping it from going in. If the screen is damaged, replace it.

My kenmore elite dryer that i bought 2 years ago lint trap corner is catching my clothes and tearing them. we had it replaced and its doing it again. I am tired of messing with it. Please help.


don't know if you already had this fixed,usually this is caused by not having your dryer cleaned out,the lint builds up inside the duct that the lint filter slides down into and has to be removed and cleaned out.also in some of the kenmore dryer ducts there's a metal clip inside the duct that can come loose and hold the lint filter up.these are the two most likely causes for this to happen.

There is lint down in the "basin" below the lint filters and I cannot reach it to vacuum it out. I empty the lint screens after each and every load but this has built up in the bottom in the stainles


unplug it,remove the bottom panel,pull out the lint filter,you'll see the metal duct that the lint filter slides into,remove the 1/4 inch screws that hold it in place and remove it and vac it out,if you have a shop vac you can blow the lint off of the motor and blow all the lint in the back of the cabinet forwards and then vac it up,this way you don't have to pull the dryer apart to clean it,you should do this once a year so you don't have any problems with the dryer and your clothes will dry on time,also you should clean out the vent line,pull out the dryer,remove the vent line,if it's a long run stick a leaf blower into the vent line and blow all the lint in it outside,first make sure you don't have a cage or anything that will catch the lint,if you do remove it and don't put it back then go inside and blow out the line.this happens to every dryer even if you clean the lint filter every time.hope this helps and good luck with your dryer

Lint filter on LG DLEX2901V sticks up in the corner and catches clothes


Look familiar? LG dryer model DLEX3250W. Lint frame does not fit the slot anymore. NOT BECAUSE OF EXTRA LINT it's because the frame is warping.

Ijwant to dry my cloth but when i turn on it appear check filter how i am going to fix


You should empty the lint filter. The lint filter catches all the lint from your clothes and will need cleaned occassionally. I clean my lint filter after every load. Towels usually clog the filter faster than other clothes.

Our dryer lint trap won't go down all the way and is catching our clothes -- ruining spaghettis straps, bras, etc., twisting everything and catching our clothes on the corner of the trap.

My lint filter assembly is broken. I was drying a small load of clothes and the lint filter got tangled with clothes and came out into the drum. The dryer was stopped when I found this situation. ...


The drum should turn either direction. Part of the filter must be catching in the belt at the drum or motor when turning clockwise. CCW would push it out away from the belt so no pinching.
