Question about Kenmore 60172 Electric Commercial Dryer
Thanks for your reply jsrock516. The filter is on the top of the dryer not in the door. I have also never done something like this before.... any help you can give would be MOST appreciated. thanks very much
Okay...you need to unplug the machine, first. Remove the two screws that are located at the lint filter on top of the dryer. Move the dryer out from from the wall and disconnect the dryer hose. Remove the back panel. The screws are 1/4 inch socket drive screws. With the back off, you will need to remove the dryer vent baffle on the left hand side as you are looking at it from the back. This will be the long chute that the lint filter goes into. Clean the baffle out thoroughly. With it removed from the machine you can probably get away with rinsing it with water. Just make sure you dry it off good inside and out. Inspect the blower fan assembly. Make sure you clean it off real well. I would not recommend removing the fan, as they have a tendency to break when removing. Check in and around the bottom of the dryer casing and vent exhaust tube. Make sure get all the soap cleaned up. If you don't, you can get lint accumulations and a soapy residue that turns to a sticky goo. This dryer configuration is actually easier than the front door style lint filters. Just make sure you reinstall everything in the reverse order that you have taken it off. Keep all screws in a handy container so you don't lose them (there may be a lot of them). When reinstalling the screws on the top of the dryer for the lint filter opening, you may have to move the dryer chute around a bit to get the screws to realign. Do not drop the screws down the chute, or you will have to take the unit apart again to get them out. Good luck and let me know if this helps you, and if I can assist any further. You do not have to post separate comments. Just add a comment to this exchange.
