Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Normally yes and here are my complete (A-Z hopefully!) guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-----------------------------------
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Gets stock in rinse cycle


Rinse cycles are usually with cold water. If it cant fill with cold water, it wont go through the rinse cycle. Make sure it fills with cold on a normal wash. You may find its filling with hot only. Alternatively, the machine may not be pumping out properly, this will cause a similar fault. Check to see the machine is draining at the end of the wash. check the pump and the filters for blockages or lint etc clogging the hoses or pump.

Warning signal "linter filter" comes on and dryer


You don't have very much information here to give you a better diagnosis, like the model or the error code, but I'll take a shot at it. If you're thinking that the flashing list filter light is the error code you can relax. The lint filter light ALWAYS flashes at the end of a cycle or before you hit the start button to begin a cycle. This is just a reminder to check the filter.
If your dyer is displaying an E:01 code this indicates blockage in the venting system. Do the simple thing 1st. wash your lint filter with some dish soap and running water, lightly scrubbing it with your finger tips. After rinsing clean pat the filter dry and re install it in the dryer. While you have the filter out look down in the filter holder area and see if you have lint built up there. They make brushes for cleaning this area or you can use a vacuum cleaner attachment to reach in there and **** out the lint.
If you still have an E:01 error after doing all this you may need to have your house vent pipe cleaned. But before you do this check your vent hood where the dyer vent exhausts out of the house. If it's obstructed you found your problem

All my shirts are ending up with fuzz balls . Is there a lint filter?? i can't seem to find it .


There is no lint filter. Make sure you have enough water to float the clothes. Try washing your shirts with the permanent press or gentle cycle.

I have an lg dryer model DLG5966W and the check filter light is on. It takes two cycles to completly dry my clothes. I cleaned the lint filter and still doesnt dry on one cycle. I then removed the filter...


Check your vent. Inspect the dryer venting from the rear of the dryer to the outside vent hood of the home.
If there's a restriction in the vent--the clothing in the dryer takes longer to dry.
When an LG dryer is functioning normally---the time required to dry laundry is determined by the *Sensor* located on the drum side of the lint filter housing and by the main control board.
When laundry is near dry--any Time Remaining on the control panel that is *not* needed will be eliminated---except for the last 6 minutes.
The final 6 minutes of any LG automatic cycle is for cooling down the laundry before the dryer ends the cycle.
If a dryer *counts down* to the last 6 minutes but the laundry is still not dry--the computer will allow the dryer to run until the laundry has dried or defaults (not drying within the additional time allowed).
Dryer vents that are longer than 8 feet with more than (2) 90 degree turns--can affect drying performance.
Setting the DRY LEVEL selector to *Very Dry* will solve most dryability issues. In homes with abnormally long vents--even the longer run time in the *Very Dry* setting is usually not sufficient to dry laundry loads.
Reducing the length of the vent or starting a second cycle becomes necessary to fully dry the clothing.
If a second cycle was started---only the amount of time that is needed to dry laundry will be used before dropping to 6 minutes and then the cycle will end with dry laundry. Bonus:
LG DRYER

Problem:
The dryer has an auto dry feature which never fully dries the clothes so we wind up manually setting the dry time to an hour.
Solution:
LG gas dryers are VERY temperamental in long vent set-ups. If fabric softener sheets are used in the dryer--clean the two stainless steel strips of metal on the lint filter housing with a SCOTCHBRITE PAD--scrub back & forth several times to remove the waxy residue from the fabric softener sheets. Most,if not all manufacturers do *not* recommend using sheets in dryers that have a moisture sensor (electrodes).
However--using a SCOTCHBRITE pad keeps the wax off those sensors which can be seen if looking *into* the dryer drum and at the lint filter housing.
If only *liquid* fabric softener is used in the washer--clean the dryer sensors once a month. Liquid softener also contains wax which can slowly accumulate on the dryer sensors from the laundry washed in the washer.

Thank you to the gentleman who sent us the Manual.  We now know that F & P has an automatic Lint Filter which is pretty useless !!  Oh, for the old method of a physical filter you can clean...

Getting Hot, but not drying the clothes


there has got to be some restriction in the vent system. Take the vent pipe completely off and look in the tube coming directly out of the dryer. Also make sure the drum is turning good speed.

Water does not drain from the machine


The only way for water to be exhausted from the Eurotech washer unit is for the water pump to function correctly. Check for operation of the water pump which can be heard with a faint hum during the water exhaust cycle. Also check to see if the drain port is blocked etc eg with a childs sock. To check for this open the lint filterdoor,remove the lint filter and using an inspection mirror look around paying attention to the 2 ports inside the filter cavity. If filter ports are clear then suspect the water pump. If you can hear the water pump working but the water is not exiting your washer then it is likely the 4 prong impeller inside the water pump has sheered off its shaft within the pump. Change pump and this should solve your problem.

Lint Filter Light comes on and cycle is interupted


Depending on how old this is or how much it is used depends how much lint has built up inside
the air flow tube. I have seen where you look inside where the lint screen is and beneath it with screen removed there is nothing but lint, in which case the dryer thinks the screen is clogged. You might have two screws on the inside of the drum that hold the screen holder in place. First remove the lint screen
and hold the little door that closes when you remove the screen, open the little door and look down inside it with a flash light, if you see a lot of lint, like I said you might be able to remove the holder
and clean this area out, also take a coat hanger and bend a little piece at the end and use this to get most of the lint out of this area and the tube that Leeds down from this area. If this can be done
and you get this area clean and it still happens, you might have to clean the entire area the tube
and the back tube,the tube leeding to the outside of the house and vent. Any questions please post back.

My Miele T8322 Tumble dryer turns off before the clothes its fully dry even in Extra Dry mode. The vent pipe is clear. Is there any kind of adjustment or do I need to get a new sensor under warranty...


IS THE DRYER PUSHED UP AGAINST THE VENTING IN THE BACK OF THE DRYER? IT MAY BE CRIMPING THE EXHAUST MATERIAL CAUSING A RESTRICTION.

IF THAT IS O.K., DISCONNECT THE EXHAUST AND RUN A LOAD OF LAUNDRY THROUGH A NORMAL DRY CYCLE.
IF THE DRYER DRIES THAT LOAD O.K., THERE IS A RESTRICTION SOMEWHERE IN THE EXHAUST. ALSO, CHECK THE LINT TRAP. IF THERE IS A WHITE CLOUDY FILM ON THE LINT FILTER, TAKE A WIRE BRUSH AND CLEAN IT OFF. IT IS RESTRICTING THE AIR FLOW AT THE FILTER.

CHECK THE LINT FILTER HOUSING FOR A BUILD UP OF LINT. IF THERE IS, USE A CENTER CARDBOARD FROM WRAPPING PAPER ATTACHED TO THE END OF THE VACUUM HOSE. FLATTEN THE CARDBOARD TO FIT INTO THE FILTER SLOT AND CLEAN OUT THE LINT.
