Remove lint holder on ge front loader dryer

I have a GE DHDVH52 front load dryer. When I remove the lint filter there is still a lot of junk on the bottom of the lint filter holder. I am unable to get the vacuum tip down far enough so I am trying to figure out how to remove the "lint filter holder" so I can vacuum the junk up.

I have the exact same problem. I am amazed at had been the engineering is for such a simple process. The user guide just says to clean the lint filter. Even when doing so, there is still an excessive build up of lint beyond reach. There are no instructions that mention how to clean this part. It is obvious that GE did not test this part of the machine.

I have lots of lint that gets trapped under and all around lint filter and it is very hard to get out - why is it not being contained? GE Dryer DBVH512EFOWW front load.


Hi rstebly...
Sometimes the problem is with the lint filter itself...
If you use "dryer sheets" they can plug up the holes in the lint filter with a kind of waxy substance and that will impair the air getting thru the filter causing the lint and air to find another way out, not thru the filter but thru the machine.
I would suggest you take the filter out and wash/scrub, lightly it in hot soapy water, let dry, then reinstall the filter.
You should also check the blower /blower tube and the inside of your dryer for lint buildup also, as lint buildup can cause dryer fires.
Hopefully this will solve your problem

Have Kenmore 90 series elec. dryer...will start, but then cuts off and doesn't dry clothes. Trying to clean the lint out of it. We've taken all the screws out of the back, but can't get the back off!...


Hi-I just cleaned out mine. You take off the clamp that holds the exhaust duct from the bottom of the back of the dryer and you will be able to vacuum it out. Then you can remove the kickplate on the front of the dryer by lifting it hard and pull the top of it out. Then you can remove the lint trap holder once inside by unscrewing it, remove it and clean it out(take out the lint filter first). I vacuumed out the inside of the exposed bottom gently cause it was so full lint! Hope this helps!

My GE select dryer all of a sudden doesn't dry a load of clothes in the same amount of time. It takes almost twice as long.. why?


This is likely the result of an air flow problem if you are sure the heater is working properly. Ensure you are not running the dryer in a closed room which would starve the dryer of air dramatically reducing the air over the clothes even if the full length of your vent is brand new. Next, remove the vent hose from the rear of the dryer and check for strong air flow at the outlet. If it seems strong enough then run a vent through a window or out into another room and do one load in this fashion. If this resolves your problem the blockage exists in the vent line outside your dryer and disassembling dryer becomes unnecessary.

If not, ensure you have seen and touched every inch of interior dryer piping and hold the lint filter up to the light to be sure you can see through it. Disassemble and clean ANY section of piping you can't get your hand into. The area below the lint filter tends to catch a lot of lint and can only be accessed by removing the housing at the rear on the left side as you face the rear. Ensure the blower wheel turns when the motor turns. (Newer models may have the filter housing at the front)

Having performed all these actions will likely resolve the problem.

I am trying to replace the belt but the drum is still attached to the back (I have taken every visible screw out). Should I try from the front? Is there a way of getting the drum unsecured from the back?


Dryers do not open from the back
the screws removed secure parts to the inside of the case
carefully replace them.
to opent the front of the dryer
unplg dryer

type I: maytag:kenmore stackable:speedqueen:
  • remove 2 screws from bottom of front panel, swing front panel out at bottom and unhook from dop
  • remove door switch wires from switch
  • remove front panel set aside
type II: Kenmore:whirlpool:ge:frigidaire
  • remove lint filter
  • remove 2 screws in lint filter holder
  • with putty knife or other blunt blade
    depress spring catches at corners of top cover
  • lift top cover at front
  • remove 1screw each side 1/3 way down
  • remove door switch wires
  • remove front panel set aside
dryer internals are exposed and easily repairable
examine back panel to ensure that nothing is detached from screw removal
assemble in reverse order

Note:
while the dryer is disassembled, examine felts rollers and glides for wear, most common cause of belt breakage, if there is any wear, replace.
examine fan, fan housing and ducting for lint that got past the filter screen.

I am unable to reach the paper from the top of the dryer where the lint filter is inserted.The dryer now makes a grinding type noise when it is turned on. Can you tell me how to reach the paper and remove it

A lot of lint is getting by the in unit filter screen and is cloging the outside vent bird screen The dryer is about one year old and is a model DHDVH52


Check the seal for the dryer vent coming from the drum itself. It may just be a simple lint filter replacement that is realitively cheap and can be bought from www.marcone.com. If it is a top removable lint filter, the seals get worn out quite easily. Also, be sure to clean the lint filter after EACH load to help prevent it.
