It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty.

Destroys clothes and sheets

RunningOutOfClothes 10/11/2019

The dryer is great but the lint filter has ruined so many clothes and sheets. As others noted the clothes get caught on the edge and get twisted together in a tight knot. This even caused a piece of the lint filter holder to get ripped off LG needs to redesign this filter. I would advise no one to purchase this dryer until the lint filter issue is fixed. Ive even tried electrical tape which works on low heat. But on medium or high heat the tape will loose its adhesion and get ripped off.

The Dryer Lint Filter

Faith8 8/13/2019

The LG Dryer is excellent The dryer lint filter is not of good quality the felt has separated the filter is has melted some cracking lose some of its venting plastic causing excessive tearings rips and damaging to our clothing. This dryer lint filter needs to be redesigned and the made with in a more sturdy manner with can handle the heat. My next complaint is the dryer door rubber gasket seal has separated and has come loose so it falling off the door as well. The filter gets a rating of a D- or one star.

Lint Filter on the Dryer

kusry 8/4/2019

We love the dryer but the lint filter is warping on the edges and is catching the clothing causing it to tear. We have cleaned out the area with where the lint filter sits thinking it may be because of loose lint but the heat from the drying process has caused the edges of the filter to warp and stick up a little high catching the clothes. Very frustrating and getting expensive. We have also tried regulating the size of the loads in the dryer and it does not make a difference.

Filter destroying clothes and sheets.

Sherry100 7/14/2019

The dryer lint filter has been tearing our clothes and sheets. The sheets were expensive as well as some of the clothing it has torn. I have to now watch the clothes dry So I can release the items when they get caught. Now shopping for a filter replacement and when reading the reviews looks like we are going to have the same problem. Is this going to get fixed? The dryer is good but the filter is really bad. Bad design.

Time to invest in a clothing line.

John Buse 7/5/2019

I like my LG dryer but the corner of the lint filter keeps melting creating an edge which twists and rips my clothing. This seems to be an issue many people are having but one which LG isnt responding to. I certainly wont be buying another LG again if I have to buy a replacement part every couple of months just so my clothes wont get ruined. I would stay away from LG dryers until this issue is resolved.

LG dryer tears up clothes

Cardinalfan 4/26/2019

Although I love the LG washer I have had problems with the dryer. The dryer lint catcher has broken once already and it is now tearing up clothes again so I need to replace it again. The plastic part inside the dryer on which it sits also broke off so I dont know if the dryer will continue tearing up clothes. This is a design flaw.

Marky T 3/13/2019

I bought this to replace one old one of at least 5 years the felt seal started to come apart. The new one is now catching much more lint I should have replaced it sooner. Know I can feel safer about not having a fire from lint in the exhaust.

Lint filter has cut many clothing items

AnCu 3/5/2019

I am so disappointed with the lint filter on my dryer. It has completely bent and no longer fits into the slot due to clothes getting caught on the corner. We have had many clothing items ripped due to this filter especially anything with a tank top or strap.

Lint Filter frustrations

scrubs29 2/10/2019

I love my LG washer and dryer but I am so tired of having to buy new tank tops because of the lint trap. I thought the issue was just mine but now I see its been an issue for years and is still an issue. I have had my set for over 10 years and have not had any issues with them besides the lint trap.

Lint Fliter is NO GOOD

ELREY4 1/21/2019

I have replaced my lint filter twice already. Since having my washer and dryer set for about a year now. For the last 6 months I walk to my laundry room praying that I dont find anymore ripped clothes in the dryer. If I dont find them ripped most times I find them in a knot. LG please fix this issue some how.... I like the washer its been great and the look for the dryer is great but the lint filter is just BAD

Horrible Lint Filter

MarieE 1/17/2019

I came on the website to order a new link filter and realized how many others are having the same problem with clothes being twisted into knots due to the poor alignment of the filter. I dont understand why there has not been a recall on this. Ive had clothes ruined and twisted beyond repair. Very unhappy customer.

Must replace lint trap for third time

Nancy Kim 1/16/2019

The original lint filter that came with the dryer broke about a year after purchase. I bought another LG lint filter and it also fell apart. The screen came apart from the frame on the first one and the frame broke on the second one. I like the dryer itself but this filter is made poorly. I had a dryer for 13 years and never had to replace the filter.

I thought we were the only ones that have this problem. The lint filter is horrible I cannot believe there is not a recall or a solution. Clothes get caught in the corner and twist stuff until it tears. Awful design come up with a solution LG.

Ruins clothes. new one broke into pieces

sshell 12/28/2018

This is the 3rd one I am buying. Not sure why this is such a problem. I use aluminum tape to keep the edges down. This has worked. You just have to have enough tape to replace every time you clean the trap out. I have not found any after market traps that fit. I cant figure out why LG is unable to fix this issue. I like the dryer but will not buy another LG because even though it is nice it is not worth the ruined clothes and me having to Jerry rig the trap to keep it from ruining clothes.

kd79 11/25/2018

We have had this dryer for 2 years but the corner of the lint trap has broken off and has ruined tank tops and sports bras. I was going to purchase a new one but it seems as if this is an ongoing problem. Wondering if LG is going to fix this?

Ruining clothes

Dryer Remorse 11/16/2018

I like other reviewers am seeing this lint filter start to detroy my clothing. This LG website isnt very helpful either as I go into my dryer model and there is no clear way to find the lint filter part number. It would be seemless customer experience to put the lint filter part number right with the dryer itself. Alas no go. I have to hunt and peck. And then to talk to customer service I have to open a Twitter or Facebook account? No thank you I dumped both apps about 7 years ago.

Lint Filter

Beaner250 11/15/2018

Wow cannot believe all the comments regarding the lint filter just like everyone else my LG dryer is ruining clothes the same way. Any article of clothing that has a hook or strap gets caught on the corner top of the filter. Ive had this problem for over 2 years now I even take the unit apart and remove the lint that piles up at the bottom of the casing just the other day and still had clothes twisted up on the filter 2 days later.

Distroying my clothes

sha1220 11/2/2018

I have had my dryer a year. However recently the filter is catching my items on the corner and twisting the items to the point that I have to carefully remove the item to keep from ruining it and on a couple of occasions it ripped the clothing. After reading the other reviews it appears to me that LG would take immediate action to replace this filter with one that does not tear items in the dryer and/or wraps the items on the corner of the filter. Just wanted to know how many complaints do you have to get before some positive action is taken.

Catches the edge of sheets and twists them around

GAldis 7/7/2018

This ignorantly designed filter system does not sit flush with the dryer and catches the edge of sheets and twist them so violently around and makes the biggest mess. It has ripped some of clothing. This is maddening when the dryer cost so much to begin with. The one of the corners has become so miss shaped we can no longer get it to go down. I took a flashlight to the bottom of lint trap area and it is beyond full. This is a massive design flaw by LG and considering we are tried and true LG household from TVs to all of appliances and cell phones this makes this all the more maddening.

This is the solution....

Frustrated LG Dryer Owner 6/24/2018

I had the same issue as everyone else and was about to purchase a replacement filter when I read all of the other reviews and realized that the problem is not the actual lint filter but the accumulation of lint at the bottom of the receptacle for it. Remove the filter use a flashlight and take a look. I had a pile of lint wedged at the bottom of the receptacle which prevented my lint filter from making contact. It took me an hour of poking prodding and vacuuming alternating a lint lizard and a long thin curtain attachment to finally remove it. The lint filter once again fits perfectly so I can confirm warping is not the issue. Horrible design but at least there is a fix.

Dryer Destroying Clothes - Solution

MissMila 6/20/2018

Thanks to the helpful people in this review section I solved the tearing clothes issue without having to buy a new lint trap. I assumed that the reason it was no longer sitting flush was because it had become warped. But given your suggestions I decided to check the casing and sure enough it was FULL of lint. Vacuumed it out and my dryer is back to working perfectly again. It is a huge design flaw that so much lint is able to get down there but at least I know how to solve this issue in the future.

Lint Filter is a Terrible Design

Angie73 6/15/2018

I have had the same problems as everyone else. It is warped and catches anything that has a strap. I have to hang any clothing that has straps i.e. tank tops etc. on a hanger to dry because the lint filter rips the straps off everything.

Ordered this replacement filter for my original that the felt got pulled off of and then someone dropped and cracked it.The replacement arrived very quickly and fortunately was the correct unit. It seems to be working just fine. We dry A LOT of towels so there is always a lot if lint. I hope the felt piece doesnt get pulled off again as it does stick out a bit to help seal the opening.

dc1011 3/26/2018

i loved the website because the lint filter stated which model dryers it would fit. I received the item packed nicely and it arrived as it claimed. However it did NOT fit my LG DRYER. It was truly tooooo BIG. I returned it asap and was disappointed. Very hesitant to buy another one online. Do not know if I had to pay a stocking charge since I returned it or not.

The corner has cracked and has been catching clothing. I assumed just change the filter. But now I am reading reviews and wondering if this is why the corner cracked because the clothes were catching on it and with the dryer working and twirling it ended up cracking he corner. In process of replacing and we shall see.
