Exscess lint is getting past the lint filter in this LG dryer. The felt "seal" around the edge of the lint filter seems flat or comressed creating a leak for the lint to bypass the filter Has the design of the filter been improved since my dryer was made to reduce this leak bypass problem? Does the filter part #
5231EL1003B fix this problem? Is there anything else that can be done as well?
ANSWER Hello Mary. If the felt is worn, you will need to replace the filter 5231EL1003B. Make sure the filter is removed and cleaned out each cycle. Also, make sure the air housing is good and is not clogged on the unit.
