Why is my LG washer/dryer combo not drying my clothes?
SubZero_Wolf Expert :
Hello. This unit does not have a lint trap. The moisture and lint are supposed to be converted to water and pumped out of the drain. Most likely you have lint clogged in the heater or condensation chamber. The heater is up top of the drum and the condensation chamber behind. You will need to remove the top and back panels and check these areas for blockage first. If they check ok then you can voltage test the heater system. These units are known for getting blocked fairly easily.
Do I need to remove the back of the dryer??
The back for the condensation chamber and the top for the heater. It could be clogged in either area so you can check either one first.
Ok thanks. I am a female, just to give a heads up. I am confused. Will I know what I am looking at once I remove the back of the dryer? I am going to look at it now. Thanks.
You will see a large chamber mounted on the back of the drum that has screws along the trim. The hose will connect to the base of this chamber and the heater to the top. Remove the cover and check for lint. Just so you know these combo units are very complex and I don't know that I would attempt any major repair unless you are familiar with most tools and a voltage meter. The screws on the back are most likely the star kink so you may need to purchase a set depending on what tools you have. Let me know what you find.
I removed the silver back panel. I do not see anything but, the drum that holds the clothes. Now, what do I look for? I don't see anything that would look like a lint trap
Its not a lint trap but the main area that the hot air flows through. It is large. Click here for a picture of the chamber. The bottom of the picture is the rear of the machine and M101 is the chamber.
You should see a small belt that attaches to the fan in the chamber.
I have no idea. I may have to call someone, but I did empty the excess water from the lower front bottom. I opened it with a wrench. Was that something I am supposed to do more often or it doesn't matter? As far as the other thing, I am not sure I should go any further. Is it easy to do or forget it?
Sorry it wasn't easier. This is not the best machine to learn how to be a technician on. Hope I have been informative.
Thank you for your help.
