Dryer Lint Filter

What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wrecking clothes Same problem as others posted. The straps on camis are a twisted mess, ruining them. Other clothes are a problem. My daughter took out the assembly, and used a knife to pull out lint that accumulated under where it fits in. She pulled out a LOT. This is what was causing it to not fit correctly. Love the dryer otherwise, but very poor design for the lint trapper area! Wish we had a better choice instead of no choice on this part.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dryer Filter Problem I loved my LG Steam Dryer for a while however the lint filter does not fit properly therefor I have to babysit my dryer; I'm no longer a lover. Nothing with a thin fabric is safe; cami's; belt loops; bikini's; pants/sweatshirt strings; everything catches on the filter and the spinning motion of the drum winds everything around the filter; ugh!. Can't tell you how many times I have to throw away a cami or two because one arm breaks on the filter; never mind the string on sweat pants or sweat shirts; really, really annoying. I have plenty of photo's; if you need to see one please let me know.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from filter design equals poor Having had the dryer for some time now I am pleased with the dryer but the filter design is somewhat poor. the gasket around the seal from putting it in and taking it out of the lint housing tears the bottom of the filter gasket. And that is why I have to get another one. the sides and top of the filter is fine but the bottom is just hanging loose.
