What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lint filter is tearing up my clothes! I haven't even had my machine but a few months and the lint filter has a jagged edge on it that keeps tearing up my clothes and getting them twisted in unimaginable knots! I feel like I have to sit and watch my clothes dry!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from destroys clothes Horrible part for an otherwise good dryer. Destroys clothes with straps or strings as they get caught in the ends. Please remember to leave them out as they will rip or worse, get caught and destroy other clothes with them as they become a tangled mess.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My poor clothes! I can't believe LG has not resolved this issue! I have the same problem as countless others. Clothes get caught on the corners, get twisted and torn. I've had numerous drawstrings, spaghetti straps and ornamental fringe literally ripped off my garments. I have to vacuum out the lint under the filter monthly to keep it from building up. Do the right thing LG! Recall, rework, and replace this terrible part!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ruining my clothes I have owned this dryer for about three years, and have had to replace the lint filter twice. It has ruined countless clothing items. It is poorly designed, so it will not lay flat, so clothes get hooked on the corner. I am very disappointed and will probably never purchase LG again based on this experience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from HORRIBLE LINT FILTER It seems mine has laster longer than most of yours, but I too am having the same problem. For a dryer at this price level, with all these features, one would think they would be able to fix this issue. Also, I have a lot of lint that gets stuck under the filter, which ofter prevents it from sliding all the way in, further exasperating the problem. I wouldn't recommend this filter to a friend, but if you already spent $$$$ on the appliance, what other option is there?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Horrible filter tray I have had the same problem with clothes getting ruined. Instead of constantly replacing the filter, (the same thing happens to the replacement as the original) I have started to wrap the corner tightly with electrical tape. Lasts for a few months at a time. Easier and cheaper! LG should fix this issue and send out replacement free of charge. Not acceptable customer service for otherwise a very nice washer/dryer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from HORRIBLE VENTS I am very disappointed with this dryer because of the vent, it's snagged so much of my clothes and under garments and have caused rip, snag, tear to them. I hope LG will have a better design for this beautiful machine.
