Question about Whirlpool LTE5243D Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer
Help! I was cleaning the lint screen, then noticed there was so much lint accummulated in the box base so I took a toothbrush to clean it out. I got most of the lint out, but on the last round I lost my grip of the toothbrush and it accidentally fell into the bin. I tried different ways to try and get it out, but couldn't. I even tried to unscrew the screws that are on the front and bottom, but the panel underneath opened up but I still can't get to the toothbrush. Any suggestions on how can remove the plastic container where the screen is placed? If I can open that area up, then I can get the toothbrush out. Thank you!!!
Does it matter if its there?
If you dropped it in without opening up anything you should be able to get it out (With a hassle)

Had the same issue with my Whirpool. If the clothes are getting hot but not drying then there might be a build up of lint in the exhaust duct and/or passage. Once I replaced the the duct and ran a snake with a brush through the passage (my dryer was on 1st floor, vent ran up to 2nd) and cleaned out the lint build up in filter area it worked like new. Also keep in mind if you use dryer sheets they will leave an invisible residue on your lint filter thus restricting airflow. This can lead to the heating element burning out. The lint filter should periodically be scrubbed with a soft brush (an old toothbrush will do) under warm water with detergent (I use Dawn). This should keep the airflow moving through the dryer instead of keeping it in the drum. Hope this helps.
