Take the lint trap out and turn on the dryer and it should force the pencil out through the outside vent by the blowing action of the air.

Forgot to put the lint trap back into LG Ventless Dryer DLEC855W. Clothing might have gotten stuck inside. Dryer now making grinding noise and drum is moving slowly. Is it time to call a repairman?


The filter simply allows the dryer air to pass through and trap the lint so it will not collect in the exit tube or on the outer vent parts. If anything, the clothes inside the bin will just spin around and be there when you finish. The noise inside the dryer could be from something that was in the pant or shirt pocket and was floating around.

When you pulled the lint filter something may have fallen into the blower which is just below the filter. Use a flashlight to try and see down the chute, if you cant find what is stuck there, you may need to call for service to disassemble the dryer to remove the object so it does not destroy the blower.

Lint fell down the lint trap. How do I get it


Luckily, dryers are light. Best thing to do is pull it out until you can remove the back cover. (unplug it first) Then vacuum and clean all the dust and lint you can. This should be a yearly thing at least anyway. Replace the back plug it in and slid it back. I do mine every 6 months or so.

Lint fell back into lint trap. how can i get it out? already looked in back.


An appliance store can sell you a brush that is attached to a long wire. It is made specifically for removing lint from dryers. I have seen them at walmart and other places but for sure at an appliance store. Good luck.
