Un plug the dryer, disconnect the vent and reach in the hole and pull the lint out. Put a bag on the end or somthing to catch the lint. Turn on the dryer and blow the lint out. This is a pretty good indictor that you vents on the house are clogged. Maybe time to get them cleaned. thanks Dave www.washermd.com

My dryer keeps getting lent bevingld the drum & catching on firem i changed the element & cleaned out all the lent & a week later it caught on fire again. Any ideas?


what's the brand name and model number?on some electric dryers like ge or frigidaire that have the heater element on the back wall of dryer the drum has a metal ring around the back of it and the lint builds up in it,you have to remove the drum and clean the lint out,if you open the door and look through the holes in the back wall of drum you sometimes can see it and it gets thick,you can try to vac it out through the holes,if you have a stinger vac or shop vac set it to blow and blow through the holes and vac it some more but the best way is to remove the drum and clean it.you should do this at least once a year,clean out the inside of dryer,the duct where the lint filter slides down into and the vent line,if you do this your clothes will dry on time,the parts will last longer like the motor,usually is covered in lint and you won't have a dryer fire.

My oreck magnesium keeps turning off. Blue. Light keeps blinking


THE PROBLEM SEAMS TO BE WITH THE THICKNESS OF THE CARPET AND THE PAD-ALL VACUUMS NEED TO BE ABLE TO BREATHE IF THE PAD AND THE CARPET ARE THICK THE VACUUM WILL PULL ITSELF TOWARD THE FLOOR SLOW DOWN THE BRUSHROLL ENOUGH TO TRIGGER THE AUTO SHUTDOWN ON THE MAGNESIUM BECAUSE THE VACUUM CANT BREATHE. TAKE IT TO YOUR LOCAL ORECK AND THEY CAN PUT A FEW HOLES IN YOUR SOLEPLATE AND THIS WILL TAKE CARE OF THE ISSUE.

Lots of lint in bottom where the lint trap is at. cant get it out


You can connect a hose to your vacuum narrow and long enough to reach in the slot. I cut off part of an old garden hose to use with our vacuum. Clumps of lint will get stuck on the end of the hose and will not go through the hose so you will have to repeatedly pull it in and out to remove the lint. Good luck.

I have a Frigidaire stackable full-size washer/dryer. I don't have the model number, but it is about eight years old. The dryer does not get hot enough to dry even a small load well.


When was the last time you cleaned out your vent? It should be done every 1-2 years to prevent build-up of lint and possible blockage. Also make sure your outside dryer vent flap is not stuck closed or clogged. I use a plumbers snake to twist inside the vent and clean out the lint. It makes a huge difference in drying time. Also disconnect the vent from behind the dryer and check for lint build-up inside the back of the dryer itself. (Be sure to unplug the dryer before you do this!) When you push the dryer back, be careful not to squish or pinch the dryer vent if it is a flexible foil or plastic tube. These are the easy fix-it's. Try them first before resorting to more expensive trouble shooting. Douglas

Gas dryer turns off when load is nit dry


You may want to clean out the dryer's insides as well as your venting that leads outside. This may be the reason your dryer isn't fully drying. It basically isn't running efficiently enough due to age or lint build up or both. As far as the running after it's cooled down it may be a "wrinkle guard" where it tumbles the clothes until they have cooled down.

How can I remove the front of my dryer so I can clean out the lint? I have a brush, but it can not unclog the large amount of lint once the lint catcher is removed. Model is 110 60922990


one of the most effective ways to get this lint is to use your vacuum cleaner hose and reduce the size down using heavy plastic tubing, of a small enough outside diameter. Many sizes of plastic tubing are available at hardware stores, home depots, etc. Be sure to get a thick walled tubing that will not collapse under the suction. good luck with it.

Lint fell down the lint trap. How do I get it


Luckily, dryers are light. Best thing to do is pull it out until you can remove the back cover. (unplug it first) Then vacuum and clean all the dust and lint you can. This should be a yearly thing at least anyway. Replace the back plug it in and slid it back. I do mine every 6 months or so.

Back panel removal


it is..remove bottom panel ..after unplugging from wall..remove lint screen next remove 3 screws holding the lint screen/blower housing in place ..clean out housing clean blower wheel with long brush or a long arm clean lint from base and on element housing on right side especially on top of the housing..that is the most important location if lint gets too thick on element housing ..fire hazard....ckd vent behind dryer and to outside if you find a large amount of lint .that is good indication of a restricted vent

Estate dryer with lint trap on top- a bottle fell down in the hole- how get OUT?


Go to www.repairclinic.com and enter dryer model. With luck, you will be presented with a list of common replacement parts and may be able to view a generic Estate video showing disassembly. The dryer should not be operated with the vent blocked.
