I dropped a clothes pin down the lint chute of my dryer

The lint chute is on top of the dryer, a pull out screen type lint trap. When I turned the dryer on, it made bad noises, like the clothes pin ended up near the belt that turns the drum. How do I get it out?

    I fixed it. I took off the back of the dryer, cleaned out the dust and lint, then took off the shroud around the chute. Voila! There was the clothes pin!

SOURCE: Lint fell off trap and down into dryer chute.

for the most if you want to clean it it will take you a while, depending on your model, disconect the unit from the power outlet first,from the back panel remove about 6- to 8 screws an then you will see the inside back panel expose to be vacumm, you'll see the back panel of the shoot that runs behind the dryer, take the i think 4-5 screws an vacumm it, i dont think is going to hurt your machine if a little fell in there, a quick way is try to remove the exhaust tube off the back an insert the vacumm cleaner, to clean the tube going out of the house you can use a strong shopvac, to **** it in or a leaf blower to push it out ...........good luck!

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Dropped pen into lint trap. Now Dryer makes a screeching noise.

The pen has fallen into the blower housing and is hitting the fan blades.

Unplug the dryer!! Remove the two screws at the top of the lint trap. Remove the rear panel. Remove the four screws at the bottom that attach the lint filter housing to the blower housing. Then, remove the pen from the blower housing.

They are all attached with clips - just place a long screw driver where the clip is and pry it open taking pains not to scratch anything

Whirlpool LGB6400LW suddenly takes multiple cycles to dry clothes. It used to do a great job...now it still gets kind of hot but takes 2-3 runs to get the clothes dry. It's 6 years old. Help! Thanks!


Try vacuuming out the exhaust vent hose and as much of the interior air passages as possible. Soak the lint screen in hot water and detergent to remove fabric softener deposits from the screen. Vacuum the burner intake and exhaust vents as well. Hope this helps!

Whirlpool gs dryer and while cleaning the lint trap a peice of papaer about 4x6 fell into the trap -how to remove? Can I still dry clothes w/o starting a fire?


Please DO NOT try using it with the paper in it. You will need to remove the back cover and disassemble the lint chute to remove the paper. When the back is removed you will see the chute assembly on the left side about 8 screws hold it together. There are 2 screws at the top under the flap that covers the lint trap that need to be removed also.

A clothes pin and piece of paper fell down the lint trap when I was cleaning the screen. How do I reach the pin and paper to get them out?


This may take you awhile to do, but once you get to it you may find a lot more than that down there. You have to remove the back on most all dryers. If the lint trap is on top, there is a metal chute that lint and other objects fall down.Remove the back and you will see what I am talking about.Once this is done, it is fairly easy to remove the collars that go down to the lint hose. You will then be able to clean all of the lint build up down below that gets by the trap.
Good luck, Sincerely, shastalaker7

Dropped bleach pen into lint trap. How do I get it out?


its not too hard to get out.
you will need a #2 phillips screwdriver and or a 1/4" socket driver
remove lint trap
remove 2 screws at lint trap
unplug unilt
open the top (2 clips between lid and front panel in the crack, push them with a butter knife or putty knife to release top) opens like a hood
pull out dryer and pull off rear panel
on the left hand side there is a metal duct like thing lol
that leads to the lint trap at the top.
there should be 4 screws at the bottom where it gets round.
remove them, and wiggle the duct open. your pen should be there..

A clothespin was dropped down lint filter chute, how can I remove the pin?


Hi, UNPLUG the dryer! You will need to remove the two screw at the lint filter. Now you will need to remove the rear panel of the dryer. Looking at the dryer from the rear with the back off, you will see the lint screen housing on the left side. There are 4) 5/16" screws holding that on. remove those screws and you should be able to pull the housing away from the bulkhead enough to reach the close pin. If the housing does not move far enough, you will ned to raise the top panel up to give the housing more room to move.
I hope this helps you. If I can assist you further, please let me know.
Please rate my respons so that I will see how I am doing.

Thanks,
Vic

Lint trap


There should be a rectangular flap on the top panel at the rear right of your dryer. the lint filter is in a chute if there is just a hole here then the filter is missing.
