Question about Dryers
The filter itself is fine/clean, but there seems to be a massive accumulation of lint/debris below where the filter is seated, and seems to be between the front dryer exterior panel and the drum area. It is so narrow and awkward, I am having a huge problem getting the stuff out through the regular filter access area after I removed the filter itself. I've had the dryer for many years and it works great, but just discovered this "treasure trove" last evening and am concerned about a possible fire hazard. Any thoughts on easier access to this area aside from taking the dryer apart -- ?

I hate this dryer overall..but, re: the lint: i purchased a long bristol brush from brookstone that is made for these kind of situations. It kind of looks like a long "rifle" cleaning barrel. it helps alittle. just stil it in the dryer and keep turning the handle and try to collect lint as possible. overall..i hate this damn dryer plus it takes forever to dry approx: 1 1/2 hrs to dry one load. my bosch washer model wfmc 6400 series sucks also..it shakes constantly throught out the entire wash..and drain cloggs alost.

there are two tabs that hold the top cover on,they are a couple inches in from each side.push in and lift lid. inside front panel are two screws, remove them then pull front cover out and lift it up of tabs on bottom.once you get the cover off remove belt,the you will be able to see your mess. heating element mounts to back panel.there is a heat sheild that mountws to the back of the drum.then you lift the drum up and put three screws in the drum to the pivot plate on the back panel.

Here's a simple overview of what you have to do:
You actually don't remove the back sir, but that's okay, that's a common misconception for this model dryer. The proper way to disassemble this particular dryer is you start with the top. You have to start with the removal of the control panel, then the top of the dryer. What I would consider the top cover. Then you'll have to remove two plastic brackets. Then you have to remove the front. There's two aluminum brackets in each corner, remove those. Open the door and there'll be two more screws to remove on each side. You have to lift the front just a little and then pull towards you. I forgot to mention, before that part, you'll need to ensure you are disconnecting the electrical wiring. There's almost no chance of connecting the wrong ones even if you forget. GE made this part novice proof. Once you get the front removed, you'll see the lint/trap. There's a couple of screws on either side of the aluminum housing. Not much to it. Let me know if there's anything I can clarify further. Have fun!

i got the same problem and no repair man could help . i think i just got mine fixed 6-15-09 .what you do is go behind the dryer , remove the air duct and then remove the pipe that is inside the machine by removing one screw . this will give you access inside the machine .first clean as much as you can of the lint inside by vacuuming it . if you look to the left you will see 2 wires with a black button in the middle this is the ignitor ,clean it good because i think the dirt is not allowing it to light up . i did that and mine is working but the cooling light is still on .

Hello ccparish8 - Base on the model listed above on the post, washer GLWS1339EC does not have a lint filter or any of Frigidaire washing machines. However, if you are referring to replacing the lint filter on a dryer, simply remove the lint filter from the housing and reinstall in the same manner.
