Customer Question
My dryer light won't...

My dryer light won't go on and it is saying check filter but the filter is 100% clean. Google says to clean the 'condenser' but every image shows a panel on the front of the dryer where the condenser is. My model does not have a front panel. Could you tell me either a. Where the condenser is located or b. How can I rectify this problem as my dryer still has heat but doesn't seem to be working as well

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of your dryer? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

LG sensor dry dle2020w

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I'm hoping to if it is a easy fix

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

No, this is the first issue I have ever faced with this dryer
