What should I do when my dryer does not work properly?

Last Update date : Sep 22. 2020

If the dryer doesn't work, check the following options. It is recommended to clean the filter and water bottle after every use of the dryer.

Check the basic options

  • Make sure the dryer door is closed properly.
  • Make sure the power cord is plugged into an active electrical outlet.
  • Check your circuit breakers and fuses.

Consider the drying capacity

When using it from washing to drying, it is good to put the laundry below the product-specific drying capacity. If you insert too much laundry, spinning will be restricted and not evenly dried, and you may have severe creasing of clothes. In addition, it is always recommended to use a standard drying course, which weighs the laundry and to determine recommended drying time.

Deactivate child lock

After child protection is enabled, only power button works. When setting the child protection function, the dryer door locks and the child protection light illuminates. The child protection light flashes when the button is not working, and the other button is operated. Once the child lock is activated, it will continue to operate even if the dryer is switched off and on again.

Tips for the Child lock function

How to open the door while the Child lock is turned on

  • If the dryer door is locked or the button is not working due to child lock settings, press and hold the + and - button for 3 seconds at the same time to set the pause (1 minute).
  • When the door is temporarily released, it will stay 1 minute and the child lock lamp flashes.
  • 1 minute after, a warning alert will be generated for 2 minutes.
  • If the door has closed during a 2 minute warning, the child lock function will set again. 

How to disable the Child lock completely

  • To disable the child lock completely, press the + and - button once more for 3 seconds during the temporary release timing.
  • Upon release, the door will unlock, and the child protection lamp will extinguish.

Note: The actual words (-, +) of the control panel may differ from your model.

Make sure the filter and water tank are not blocked

There are some sections of your dryer that need regular cleaning. Especially, it is recommended to clean the filter and tank every time you use it. Find the filter cleaning instructions below.

How to clean the lint filter

Clean the lint filter after each load. If you use the dryer with a wet lint filter may cause mold, bad odors, or a decrease in drying performance. Therefore, clean and dry the lint filter after each load.

Step 1. Open the dryer door and pull the filter upwards to remove it. (Do not remove the rubber packing after removing the filter.)

Step 2. Open the external filter and remove the internal filter.

How to clean the heat exchanger

It is recommended to clean the heat exchanger at least once a month (or when the buzzer sounds and the heat exchanger indicator lights up on the display). It will improve the heat pump efficiency. To avoid physical injury and burns, do not touch or clean the heat exchanger with your bare hands. Also do not use water to clean the heat exchanger.

Step 1. Press the top part of the outer cover to open it.
