It is important to regularly clean the lint filter of your Samsung Dryer to ensure smooth operation. You may notice the lint filter alert reminding you to do so, or you dryer may display a NC/NC1 code*. In either case, please check and clean the lint filter of your dryer. 

NOT all Washer/Dryer Combo models however, have a lint filter. You can check whether your Washer/Dryer Combo has one by consulting your user manual, which you can also download at any time from our Manuals and Downloads page.

Follow the guide below to see how you can locate and clean the lint filter on your applicable model.

*If the NC/NC1 code persists after checking and cleaning, please contact an authorised service centre to request further support.


  • Clean the lint filter after each load. Otherwise, the drying performance may decrease.
  • Do NOT operate the dryer without the inner filter inside the outer filter.
  • Using the dryer with a wet lint filter may cause mould, bad odours, or a decrease in drying performance.
