Question about Whirlpool LER5636P Electric Dryer
Generally this would be caused by an open or tear in the flexable exhaust vent pipe to the outside. Look behind the dryer and determine if the flexible exhaust pipe is connected at both ends. With the dryer running you might feel a lot of warm/hot air in the area around the vent pipe if there is a tear in the foil. The fix is either to reconnect the pipe or replace it if the pipe has a tear in it. You should be aware that if the lint is exhausting into your home, it is likely the exhaust gas (carbon monoxide or other exhaust gases) are being injected into your home. If you are unable to repair this, you should call an appliance repair company and have a professional technician check out your unit.

Now on to your problem. While I don't know what model of maytag atlantis you have, these are the general guidelines for cleaning out under the lint screen area. The easiest approach is to buy a vaccume extension availible from appliance parts stores and some hardware stores. I have even seen a clean out kit for sale at bed, bath and beyond. Basically you fit the vaccume extension on to the end of you vaccume and feed it down to the area under the lint screen. To do a more efficent cleaning you would need to dis-assmble your dryer. If you can supply the model number located just inside the door, I could get you a step by step tear down to get to it from the inside.

Older clothes do not produce as much lint as new ones. Also, if your dryer isn't getting as hot as it used to, then you won't get as much lint either. Does it seem to take a bit longer to dry your clothes? Also, check your dryer vent, if the airflow is reduced, the amount of lint that is expelled through the filter will deminish as well. You may have a build up of lint in the vent ducting to the outside that is restricting airflow.

Gaining access to the lint housing sounds more difficult than it is. As a matter of fact, I could get to it and have it back together in the time it takes me to type out the instructions!
1.) Phillips screwdriver
2.) 5/16" nut driver or socket
UNPLUG THE DRYER FIRST!!! Or risk a funky new hair-do...
Open the door and remove the four screws at the hinges then remove the door. Opposite the hinges, you'll see 4 more screws, remove these too. Now grasp the front panel on both sides near the top and pull it toward you. Lean it out to about a 45 degree angle and lift it off the clips that are holding it (at the bottom).
Now you'll see the lint trap housing. Look around the housing, you'll probably see a yellow wire near the 5 o'clock position, remove it. Now, on either side, you'll see four 5/16" screws... Don't remove the top ones, just remove the three below the top ones. You can now pull the entire panel off of the frame for cleaning.
Rebuild in the reverse order (and don't forget to re-connect that yellow wire!)
There ya go! Please don't forget to rate this as "FixYa", OK

First unplug the machine. Then remove the door.
You will then be able to remove the "goalpost" front panel. Then you will be able to get the hold down off so you can lift the top. Are the coils inside the drum vanes? Just remove them and dump the coins out and reattach the vanes. A lot of trouble for a few coin. That's the story of my life.
