Dryer lint throughout the house

Lint is coming from the dryer and settling throughout the house. She cleans the vent with every use, but it does not help. I have the dryer that has the glass door and have had to pay to have some one come out because this has been going on for a few years... I have done the cleaning of the vent, the pipe going out side is still on the dryer and it is still happening... I had a recall on the washer and they refunded the money. I still don't like the idea of having to pay for somebody to come and fix it if the "felt" has a hole in it... this machine isn't even 4 years old..Help me out with the problem can you. Thanks. Don't like drying

Four Screws holding the exhaust pipe that the hose connects to on the lower back of the dryer. Remove those screws and pull the pipe out - It has a rubber gromet on the inside end that should fit onto the opening on the inside of the dryer. May need a flashlight to see inside while aligning it when putting it back in.

A curious question concerning the lint trap. When I took the back off the dryer and took off the section that houses the lint trap I found lint half way down the in this section along with what appears to...


I am a furnace repair guy by trade, but as far as I know there shouldn't be anything in the lint trap section, are you sure its insulation and not lint?

If you had lint going that far down the trap, you may have lint plugging up your line going out the house. If you have the flexible pipe with the rings on it going out the house. I would look into the cleaning out the vent line.

One test you can do yourself, run your dryer find the vent on the outside of the house and feel the air coming out, if its hesistant or slow coming out, your vent might plugged up. If you have lint hanging from the vent outside or on the ground. Definately look into getting your vent cleaned out.

We have a combo dryer and washer. Washer is A2444330KH. Leaves lint on cotton shirts, have cleaned the filter no help. Any ideas? David


Dryer lint not only presents a problem by cluttering up your clothes with white specks, but it can also lead to a dryer fire. While it is impossible to completely eliminate dryer lint, you can take action to drastically reduce lint and the potential problems that come along with excess dryer lint. If your clothes take more than one cycle to dry, you see no lint on the lint screen, the clothes are very hot after drying or you find excess lint on the clothes after drying, you probably have a problem with accumulation of dryer lint in the dryer vent.
Use a dryer vent cleaning brush and clean the dryer vent, or hire a professional to clean the exhaust vent behind your dryer. If your dryer vent is clogged, it will create excess dust in the dryer and on the clothes. The excess lint can eventually catch on fire given the heat load of the dryer.

Dryer is taking too long to dry


Dryer needs to be cleaned. Unplug, take off back and vacuum all lint out of dryer, also take off vent and vacuum inside of vent area. Then clean dryer vent from inside of house to where it exits. Make sure all lint removed. Lint holds moisture and causes dryer not to be able to release steam caused by heating wet clothes, thus clothes don't dry.

Clean Dryer Lint Vent in Kenmore elite HE4


If you wish to clean the interior cabinet of the dryer follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG the dryer. Dangerous voltages are still present even with the dryer turned off.

2. Open the dryer door and remove the lint screen. IMPORTANT: You must remove the lint screen first in order to remove the blower fan housing.

3. Remove the lower toe panel directly below the dryer door by removing the screws under the bottom front edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off. NOTE: For better access, you can prop the front feet of the dryer up (a 2x4 works well).

4. Loosen the screws on the blower fan housing directly below the drum and remove. There's usually a small clip holding the cover in at the bottom that you may need to pull out to release. NOTE: You may also have to disconnect the auto dry sensor plug (yellow wires with white plug - use a small screwdriver to release the locking tabs) and/or ground wire to accommodate removal of the cover.

You should now have access to the dryer interior and the blower fan squirrel cage motor. Take the time to clean out the blower fan housing cover as well. A long bristle brush made for dryers works well at removing any lint inside the dryer in the hard to reach places, followed by vacuuming.

NOTE: After cleaning, you may experience a slight burning odor. This is normal as lint gets stirred up in the cleaning process and can settle on the heating components. The odor should dissipate after a short period of use.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Keeps blowing thermal cutt-off fuse


You need to remove the front dryer panel clean dryer completely of lint . Even where the lint filter is . Also make sure the vent hose is not kinked or filled with water and lint . I changed a thermal cutt-off 3 times in a dryer within about 2 weeks time . On the last time , removed the front panel and filter housing , and a big ball of lint fell out . Cleaned vent housing and inside of dryer and no more problems since .

Are you getting little or no lint on the lint screen? Are the clothes coming out nearly as wet as they went in, but feel warm? If so, you probably have a blockage somewhere in the vent/duct. Don't just check the back of the dryer, but also check the duct thru the wall and the point where it exits the house (exterior wall or roof). Many times birds will nest in the exterior vents or if they have a screen to keep the birds out it may become clogged with lint. If you have a window nearby try drying a load with the vent hose disconnected from the wall and hang it out the window (you COULD vent it into the house, but you may end up with lint everywhere and a lot of moisture in your house).
