Question about Dryers

Small plastic toy down lint trap

A small plastic toy fell into the lint trap and is too deep into the machine to get it out with my fingers. Once the electrical supply is disconnected, can we access this toy through one of the back panels? Or should we get a Sears repair person in? I doubt it's still covered under any plan. It is a Kenmore Extra Capacity Heavy Duty dryer. (We bought it used about 5 years ago and we do not have the manual.)

Is the lint filter on the top of unit??? if so you ll need to disconnect power remove the 2 phillips head screws under the lint trap holding it to the main lid. then after removing about 10 1/4in screws from back panel you ll see a metal sleeve running down the back of the unit( the lint filter actually slides in to it) ending in a circular shape below. remove perhaps 4 more screws holding that panel on and youll gain acess to retrive whatever has fallen down there. easy enough to do yourdself no need to call in a professional

I turn the start button and the dryer makes an awful clunky sound. The belt seems to be intact. I just thoroughly cleaned out the lint trap and line running outside on Saturday and this problem occurred...


Do you mean you took a brush and cleaned out the vent below the lint trap?If so yes you probably filled the blower wheel housing full.Hope this helps,have a great Thanksgiving.

Lint is massing toward the bottom of the lint trap


please check your exhaust vent, where the dryer air comes out of the house, this particular pattern is very indicitive of a slow moving exhaust, you may need to clean the duct between the machine and exhaust as well

Bosch dryer warning sounder for container full will not stop


Hi
You need to remove the left side panel, this is the side where the drain container is, once removed you will see the drain pump with two pipes coming from it, remove the pipes and top cover, disconnect the wiring, remove the pump unit with the clip, clean the float unit and pump, also remove the congealed mess in the water trouth as this is what holds the float up and makes the machine think the drain container is full.
I bet you will find this will cure the problems you are having, it did with mine.

Lint trap


http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php This will show you how your dryer is put together. The lint has gone directly to the fan, where it could affect fan performance. You would have to remove the front off the dryer, and the cover off the fan area. It's not a bad idea to clean this area once in a while.

Lint fell back into lint trap. how can i get it out? already looked in back.


An appliance store can sell you a brush that is attached to a long wire. It is made specifically for removing lint from dryers. I have seen them at walmart and other places but for sure at an appliance store. Good luck.
