Question about Dryers

Our dryer lint trap won't go down all the way and is catching our clothes -- ruining spaghettis straps, bras, etc., twisting everything and catching our clothes on the corner of the trap.

It may be backwards. But the first thing I would look for is if there is lint caught in the shute keeping it from going down all the way. If it is a newer model there is a lint screen sensor that may have come unattached and keeping the lint screen from going down all the way. Good luck.

The lint filter does not fit properly in the lint trap. The corner of the filter catches an item of clothing and twists it. I have to check it several times to clear the item away. I assume this...


We have the same model and experience the same thing. The way I fix it is to remove the filter, then with a flash light I look down into the lint trap. You will notice that lint has built up in the track where the lint filter sits. I use a wooden skewer to run along the track and lift out the lent. Hope that helps

How do you open the lint trap to clean it out? Dirt has fallen down inside the dryer.


The panel must be removed
Try a swifter cloth on a steel rod to obtain catching it
Swifters really work well on lint that is stuck inside these vent tubes or duct work

I have a Wirlpool cabrio dryer in it's "time remaining" says "AF" the clothes aren't drying. and the lent trap is collecting lint on the wrong side


This is an Air Flow warning error and you should check that the filter is clean and free of lint etc. Make sure it goes back in place correctly. Also check that the vent hose is not kinked or twisted or obstructed and any outside flap is opening correctly. It is well worth taking the outside flap or taking off the vent hose altogether and making sure it is clear of lint, fibres etc and this will cause the AF error.

The dryer has ruined many of my clothes, straps and tank tops get caught on the lint filter and then twist until they tear apart. how can i fix this?


Purchase a lingere mesh bag.
Put delicate items in the mesh bag (has a nylon zipper) and dry.
Purchase two or three at Target, WalMart, etc.

My front load samsung dryer destroyed my clothes


ours did the same thing and it was caused by lint build up in the track where the screen goes into. It was tough to vacuum out but I made a thin hose that would reach down to the bottom and scrape and vacuum out the hardened lint.

Lint trap doesnt fit in slot completely evenly


Remove the trap and look in the hole and see what is keeping it from going in. If the screen is damaged, replace it.
