Question about Dryers
I have come across this before. Here is what I think might be the problema. Keep in mind as the filter housing gets more and more blocked it tends to trap more and more lint in the opening between the drum and the filter housing. This causes a big ball of lint to glob up in that opening. To properly clean it you must remove the filter housing. That means you gotta get the front off and remove the tub. Then remove the screws holding the filter housing below and above and get it out of the dryer. Wash it down. Blow out the rest of the inside of the dryer. Air must be able to move freely throughout a dryer. So get the filter out. pop the top with a putty knife, remove the front panel screws. raise up on the front panel to keep from breaking the bottom panel clips. take the idler loose, get the drum out. then get the filter housing out. This is not hard.
