Dryer Lint Filter

What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from LG needs to address the design problem with this lint filter. I replaced the filter about a year ago, which initially was fine, but am now having the same problem with it sitting higher on one side and, once again, catching clothing and ruining them!! I've had several expensive articles of clothing torn or twisted out of shape because of this problem! It's too bad that I have a dryer that I can't use because of the lint filter! LG products will not be on my radar when I choose to replace any appliances.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ruined Clothing and Bedding I was surprised to see so many reviews by consumers who had the same issue as my family. Expensive clothing and bedding were ruined by the damaged corner of the lint filter. LG should ship an improved filter to all owners. I have no choice but to order a new filter and hope the same problem does not occur again. It sounds from other reviewer comments that I should order more than one as it will be just a matter of time for the part to break again. This is very disappointing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lint Filter Defect Like many of you, I too have experienced the same issue with our LG front load dryer. This needs to be addressed by the company. This defect is resulting in costly damages to our clothing. This is the only complaint I have. But I’m obviously not the only consumer experiencing the effects of a defective lint filter model. They need to redesign or send replacement filter free of charge.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from filter fail! I could copy and paste the comments made about this filter. It gets bent at the corner and the clothes get twisted around it. I have to take out the clothes and the filter and let them untwist and try again or hang dry.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Design Like everyone is saying, this filter eats up cloths by getting caught, tangled on the corner of the lint filter. My filter actually cracked. LG, I wont be buying another LG product.

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!
