I had the same problem. My LG dryer lint trap did the same thing and I ordered another one for replacement. The new lint trap is not rounded on the batton on the corner below where it got bent up and snagged your clothes. The new one is cut at a slight 45 degree angle. I believe that LG changed the design a little so clothes won't get hung up on that edge. Go to this site and you will see a picture of the replacement part. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/lg-dryer-lint-filter-adq56656401-ap4457244.html
make sure that when you replace your filter that there is no obstruction in the filter thread(small stone), i have had many problems with this,if the drain light keeps comming on then check the waste pipe stand.
If you are collecting more on the outside of the house means the lint filter has a tear in it and the lint in being pulled through the tear and pushed out the exhaust. It sounds like you need a new filter but this isn't cheap. If you do it your self it will run about $70 if you get a repair man it will cost about $150.
if it is a top lint filter take the lint filter out,turn dryer on,put your hand in it and you should feel a stong stuckion,if not remove the back panel and the 2 lint filter screws and check for clog-mike
To find the filter you need to do the following steps. Find your lint trap. Lint traps in washing machines can be in the agitator (the large plastic piece in the center of the tub), at the top of the washer on the rim of the tub, or attached to the washing machine's drainage hose. Pull out the agitator tube to check for the lint trap. Peel any loose lint from the filter. Scrub away lint that doesn't peel off easily with a heavy-duty paper towel or a wet sponge. Feel your way around the top rim of the washing machine's basin. If you locate a trap, pull it straight out of the machine. Peel away loose lint and follow up with a wet sponge or heavy-duty paper towel. Check your machine's drainage hose for an attached lint trap. Remove the trap and peel the top layer of lint off. Rinse the trap in low-pressure, warm water. Reattach to the drainage hose. Check for and remove any lint or debris that may have dropped into the washing machine basin during the cleaning.

You must GRARANTEE full and free ari flow outside of the building. Typically this type of complaint is related to restricted air flow outside of the machine...normally there is lots of lint, and it exits through the filter, but when flow is restricted, lint remains inside.
Older clothes do not produce as much lint as new ones. Also, if your dryer isn't getting as hot as it used to, then you won't get as much lint either. Does it seem to take a bit longer to dry your clothes? Also, check your dryer vent, if the airflow is reduced, the amount of lint that is expelled through the filter will deminish as well. You may have a build up of lint in the vent ducting to the outside that is restricting airflow.
Most US-sold washers made after the mid 1980s don't have lint filters. The manufacturers weasel-word around it by saying that the lint "goes down the drain", leading people to optimistically assume that there is a self-cleaning filter in there somewhere. There usually isn't and whatever lint doesn't go down the drain is filtered by your cloths (but whatever does might clog your septic system). As a result of this scam, it's much harder to hang-dry or iron-dry clothes that haven't been hand washed. And, if you think spending $2000 on a pair of matched "front-load" style machines will solve this, you might be wrong; many of those washers still have no lint filter.
