Dryer Lint Filter

What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Destroys Clothes! We have had the dryer for about 5 years now and have had to replace this lint filter twice and could have replaced it many more times. it works great for the first few months and then an article of clothing will get caught on the corner. after that its all downhill from there. so many scrub tops, sweatpants, underwear, tank tops you name it have gotten caught on the edge and then they are ruined. once something is caught you basically need a new filter as it will no longer sit flush in the opening so you are just asking for more destroyed clothing. please recall this item and design a new one!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LINT FILTER HORRIBLE !!! I love this machine but like other consumers I have the same problem with this piece part; this is the 3rd one I have to buy because is keep getting melted on one corner and destroying my favorites and expensive clothes. The dryer is ok but the lint filter is horrible. A lot of clothes damaged on the corner of the lint filter. This item should have been recalled long time ago !!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lint Filter Is A Clothes Destroyer My front load dryer works great except for the few times per month that the edge of the lint filter snags on clothesa and either rips them apart or twists them into an unrecognizable mess. Shirts, lingerie you name it this filter destroys it. This is very frustrating as this is the filter that came with our brand new dryer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lint Filter DESTROYS my clothes! I'm so sad that I did not see these reviews before we purchase this dryer. I have lost count of how many pieces of clothing it has eaten between my daughter and I, but I do not know that it ate my very favorite shirt that cannot be replaced. I was on this site looking to order a replacement assuming it was just a bad piece, but now found all these others with the same problem. I'm not hopeful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Pretty Good for Me I bought this lint filter despite the bad reviews because I really needed one. It's been almost four months since I've been using it and I have not had any problems at all. This thing works GREAT! Sorry it did not work for those of you with the bad reviews. But it is working perfectly for me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dryer Lint Filter Ruins Clothes On a weekly basis, our clothes get snagged on the dryer lint filter. We have shirts and pants that have been ripped and ruined. It is VERY frustrating, especially when you ruin a brand new top! I have taken the lint filter out and cleaned under it thoroughly to ensure it fits as snug as possible. Nonetheless, this has not solved our ongoing problems. This is extremely disappointing for a dryer that costs so much!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from If possible to give zero stars I would! The dryer is ok but the lint filter is horrible. We've had at least 50 items get caught and damaged on the corner of the lint filter. Not sure why it hasn't been recalled!
