take a screwdriver and push it in below the door at the top of the bottom panel, near each end of the panel, there is a springclip to pry on that that releases the panel and it will fold out and then lift off. then you can get access by removing a few screws.
BE SURE TO UNPLUG BEFORE WORKING ON IT.

SOURCE: lint fell back into lint trap. how can i get it out? already looked in back.

An appliance store can sell you a brush that is attached to a long wire. It is made specifically for removing lint from dryers. I have seen them at walmart and other places but for sure at an appliance store. Good luck.

SOURCE: Individual package of detergent fell into lint trap of Whirlpool

HI, You should remove it. Here is how Normal 0 UNPLUG the dryer! Remove the two screws under the lint screen and pop the top up by inserting a flat blade screw driver in the gap between the front panel and the top. Remove the rear panel of the dryer and locate the four 5/16" screws that hold the lint screen housing to the bulk head. Pull the lint screen housing away from the bulkhead and reach in to remove the item that fell.
Please let me know if this help or if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

SOURCE: The lint trap on my dryer is moist.

I don't know what's causing the smell, but the moist lint trap and the "takes two cycles" sounds like the exhaust vent is partially blocked.

You can ask the apartment manager to clean it out, or you can take a stab at it yourself with an electrician's fish tape, a plumber's snake, or a dryer-duct cleaning kit. (I picked links from Ace, but you can get them at any hardware or home shop)


Pull the dryer out and detach it from the ductwork. If you're using the fish tape or the drain auger, then you'll want to tie a rag to the end -- washcloth to dishtowel sized at the biggest -- to wipe the lint out of the ductwork. If you've got the duct-cleaning-kit, then use the brush that comes with the kit.


Work your way up and down the ductwork as far in as you can reasonably reach. Chances are good that you'll soon have a huge pile of lint on the floor, and much better airflow through the ductwork.

Hook up the dryer and things should go much better on the next laundry day.

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.

Cabrio gas dryer heats then has a strange smell when heats up


I had the same problem. It turned out to be that the lint trap wasn't filtering properly. I had to unplug and turn it (dryer) over. Open it up from the back and found. The entire inside of the dryer was covered with a thick layer of lint. That was begining to burn slowly. If you clean it yourself. You are going to need a socket wrench, vaccum cleaner w/ a long hose or lint lizzard (extention for the hard to reach places) large trashbag, about 3 to 4 hrs, and plenty of patients. Make sure you don't accidently disconnect any wires.

What does AF error mean on Cabrio electric dryer


AF on your Cabrio means the Air Flow is being obstructed. Make sure the vent is secure and free of debris at the back of the appliance. Also ensure there is no obstruction where it is vented outside of your home. Lastly, make sure the lint trap is clean. Your dryer will still run normally, but it's best to go through your checklist so no further issues arise.

Coin is stuck


Does it become quiet for awhile after the coin is removed? I can't imagine how a coin lying in the bottom is making any kind of noise. There is no way for a coin to be trapped on the outside of the drum. It might, if it got past the lint filter and worked it's way into the blower housing, make an occasional 'clink'. Does the lint filter have any sizable holes in it? Do what these techs have done and see what you find.
