Question about Kenmore 60172 Electric Commercial Dryer
So it was dark in the basement of the new house i moved into, and I accidentally poured washing detergent down the lint filter. It's a liquid soap so I don't know what to do to get it all cleaned out. If I pour water down there to rinse it out would that ruin the machine? I poured a fairly large amount down there, like enough for a large load of laundry. Please help me if you can (as soon as you can if possible, there are 8 people in the house and we need to do our laundry) Thanks very much. Katie
DO NOT pour water down the lint filter of a dryer! This could have catastrophic results. There are live voltages present in a dryer even with the power shut off. You have a blower fan and a motor in the air baffle. Pouring water in there will definitely damage something (if the soap hasn't already). Detergent is a corrosive and will damage anything electrical and any painted surface if left too long. I hate to say it, but you must open the dryer up and remove the air baffle and clean it out thoroughly. Unplug the machine before you attempt. You need to wipe up all the soap residue with rags. You will need to let me know if the dryer has a lint filter on the top of the machine, or in the door before I can suggest how to disassemble. This will make a big difference in the amount of effort required to correct this. Post me back with the info...
