Check filter light blinking will not start only beeps what to do please help


Probably a lint buildup on the sensor. Need to clean the entire lint system. Should be able to remove the plastic frill if the lint filter is inside the drum. Remove the two screws and clean out all the lint then pull the dryer out remove the vent hose. Run a vacuum hose or reach up i to there and pull out the li t. Then clean out the vent hise...a broom handle works if it's a straight shot.

The clean filter light was flashing but it stopped after I cleaned the vent but still won't heat, Is there another vent/filter in this dryer?


the blinking filter light is just a reminder, not connected to anything. goes out when you start cycle. however, if the dryer overheated then it may have blown the thermistor fuse. check out appliancepartspros.com or repairclinic.com for how to videos and parts.

LG Tromm DLE8377NM check filter but filter is clean


You say lint hose is disconnected. Are you referring to the exhaust vent to the outside? I would suspect this vent is clogged or a vent flapper outside may be stuck shut.

Our dryer works but it takes about two full cycles at 60 minutes each on high to dry the clothes


Sounds like the vent is plugged. Disconnect the vent hose from the vent and test again. If it drys normally your vent is plugged and will need to be cleaned.

My dryer starts and runs but puts out little heat. To dry a load of towels I must run 3 or 4 cycles


Vent Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance. Internal ductwork Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum.

Check filter light remains on. Start button seems to not be working


If the filter is clean, a blockage or lint buildup in the vent line could cause this problem. Make sure the vent line is clear all the way to the outlet.

THE DRYER TAKES TWO TO THREE HOURS TO DRY ONE LOAD


It normally takes about 45 minutes for a dryer to dry a full load. If your dryer is taking more than an hour, check these.

Vent
Heating element
Internal ductwork
Cycling thermostat
Vent Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance.

Heating element Your dryer's heating element may be partially burned out. If it is, your dryer still heats, but at such a low temperature that it takes three or four times as long to dry the clothes. If the element is partially burned out, replace it.

Internal ductwork Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum, contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

Cycling thermostat Although this isn't a common problem, one of the thermostats that controls the temperature in your dryer may break and cause the dryer to heat poorly. If so, you need to replace it. The thermostat is usually a small, round, black device mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate is mounted to the internal ductwork with two screws.
