Your going to have to remove the back panel and then access the filter air chamber. Or get a couple of strong fellows and have them un plug it and then flip it over and bump it a few times and hope it falls out. Dont reast its weight on the control console. Best o Luck

TIP OF THE DAY--To reduce the suction draft and drying time your drier and save some cash, remove the lint catcher and take it to the sink. Run water into it, if there is excessive pooling of the water (water not running straight through) then fabric softener is fouling the lint screen. Use a small brush and dish detergent to clean it and then shake off all the water and dry the screen. Remember this tip on future driers and you will make the dryer blower motor last much longer.

Carbio Dryer Lint trap won't go back in.


If its that kind that is curved slightly and drops in from the top then most likely there is a lose screw head sicking out blocking it. Most dryers the top comes off after removing four screws or so. Then you can look inside. If you have to get into the back though you will have to remove more but its mechanically very simple. Just a drum with a motor and a pully that has a timer. If it has the lint trap inside the door then your best bet is that something came loose and is obstructing it. Again probably a screw or piece of plastic.

Dropped something down the lint trap


If it's a metal utensil that responds to magnetism, try a magnet on a string, or one of those telescoping magnetic picker-upper tools to get it out.

My Whirlpool gas dryer is not working


Instructions

1
Check that the dryer door is closing completely. Remove anything that blocks the dryer door from closing.
2
Ensure the "Start" button is pressed firmly to start the dryer cycle, the dryer is not overloaded and the clothing is not balled up. Any of these things can prevent the dryer from operating and/or drying the clothes.

3
Use a level to confirm your Whirlpool dryer is sitting flatly and evenly on the ground. Adjust the dryer as necessary for it to be level as the dryer will vibrate and make unnecessary noise when sitting unevenly.
4
Examine the inside of the Whirlpool dryer drum and in the space around the drum for loose change, pens, hair ties and other items that could have been left in the pockets of clothing. These items will cause noise and potentially cause the dryer to become inoperable.
5
Examine the Whirlpool dryer's lint trap for excess lint. Remove any lint from the trap and place it back into position. Always clean the lint trap between dryer cycles. Inspect the area around the dryer and in the ventilation and exhaust systems. Remove any built up lint and clean the area thoroughly. Built up lint is a fire hazard and can cause operating issues.
6
Check the gas shutoff valve if your Whirlpool dryer is gas powered. Ensure the shutoff valve is turned all the way to the "On" position.
7Check the electric plug and ensure it fits securely in the outlet.
8
inspect both the fuse box and circuit breaker for any electrical problems. Replace any blown fuses, if necessary, and reset the circuit breaker if it has been tripp

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.

A PEN WENT DOWN THE LINT TRAP AND NOW THE DRYER WONT TURN ON. KENMORE GAS DRYER


can you move the drum by hand?if not the pen is jammed in the blower wheel stopping the motor from turning,if the filter is on top you'll need to remove the filter,take out the 2 screws in front of the filter now make sure the dryer is on a flex line so you can pull it forward to remove the lint filter and then remove the back panel,now you need to remove the 4 screws holding the duct on that the filter slides into and remove the pen and any lint that's in the duct,if the filter is inside remove the bottom panel,remove the filter and take off the duct and clean it out,next time send model number

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..
