So when I first went, I thought that the vent in the wall went straight outside. WRONG. It goes into the wall then makes a 8-10 feet climb then 90's and travels about 12 feet to the outside. I went outside and looked in the vent it wasn't clogged but there was a lot of lint on the opening flaps and looking in the pip there was about a 1/8 inch boils up of lint on the pipe wall for about 2 feet in( that's as far as I could see) I'm gonna say indoor vent kit is the solution to that problem.

Interesting. Did you test the moisture bars?

<<<Interesting. Did you test the moisture bars?>>>

*************

An unnecessary/irelevant test...



1)  Moisture Sensors (2 metal strips on the lint filter housing) do not wear-out and therefore are not likely at fault---unless damaged/pulled out/snagged by something in the laundry during a cycle.


2)  If the venting goes into the wall---and is not accessible---it's best to recommend that the customer contact a professional vent cleaning company.

John, with all do respect, iit wouldn't be irrelevant in this particular case to verify the sensing circuit is intact after drum replacement, as the op stated he was told it seemed to develop this problem immediately after replacement of the drum. Literally 5 seconds needed to carry out this task. A dirty and or long venting system is always a concern.

Just stating the facts/information that we know---from the OP :)

With all due respect---if the following occurs...

<<<LG dryer DLEX7177RM, customer complains that for about three months, the unit has been leaven clothes damp.>>>

<<<Even in the manual settings.>>>

Then that translates to---the dryer runs **at least** for a period of time **longer than** five minutes.
The clothing is not *very* wet at the end of the cycle---but "damp".

During *any* Sensor Dry cycle---a disconnected MOISTURE SENSOR PLUG---would cause the dryer cycle to end in five minutes or less.

:)
