LG Dryer: Best lint filter replacement assembly

Friday, July 30, 2021
There's something really satisfying about removing lint from a clothes drier filter. It's the best feeling for some reason, the feel of the cotton materials on the hands is quite soothing.

What's not soothing is discovering your lint filter is damaged or worn out - and it's time to get a replacement filter!

The biggest tell that you need to replace your filter is if there are marks left on your clothing at the end of the drying cycle.

The good news is that for the LG Electronics range of driers, there are plenty of replacement filters to buy.

You can buy official LG branded filter assemblies or choose from a wide selection of aftermarket replacement lint catchers that will do the job just as well as the brand item.

Choosing the best replacement filter for your LG drier is a pretty simple process as generally speaking, it's a one size fits all situation where the LG range across the board utilizes the same filter size and shape.

The LG Electronics ADQ56656401 Dryer Lint Filter is the most popular seller on Amazon as it's made by the original manufacturer so it's up to the design expectations of the designer:

We recommend you use the official replacement part because it's so cheap - less than 15 bucks. This means any aftermarket product will only be cheaper by a few bucks.

Given there's little price variance, I'd personally go with the branded part in this context. For use with the following LG Electronics models:

DLG2702V, DLEX3001W, DLGX3002R, DLEX3001P, DLEX2801W, DLE2601W, DLGX3876V, RN1319VS, RV1321AS, RV1319VS, DLG2602R, DLG2602W, RN1319E, RV1310A, RV1310B, 48231010009, 48231010030, DLE2601R, DLE2701V, RV1319E, RN1308AS, DLEX3875V, DLEX3875W, RN1308BS, RN1321VS, RN1308CS, DLGX3876V, RV1308AS, RV1308BS, RV1321VS, RV1308CS, RN1310AS, RN1310BS, RN1310DS, RV1310AS, DLEX2801L, DLEX2801R, RV1310BS, DLEX3001R, DLEX2901V, DLGX2802L, DLGX3002P, RV1310DS, DLGX2902V, DLGX3002W, RN1310A, RN1310B, DLGX2802W, DLEX3360W

That might look like spam but it's not!

If you do not know your model number, you can search for it on a metal plate that's probably affixed to the back of your unit or it should be noted in the owner's manual (we always recommend you keep these for such reasons and they are great for troubleshooting ideas as well).

Even though parts may look the same, there are often variances in similar parts and it is important to buy genuine or aftermarket parts that fit your specific clothes drier (e.g. filters for a Samsung or GE or Fisher and Paykel are not designed or intended for use in an LG machine.

If you choose to order on Amazon, you can enter your model number to ensure that the lint catcher is compatible with your home unit. One way to do it is literally hold up the part you need to be replaced and visually compare it to the part on the page you are looking at ;)
