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.

Whirlpool gs dryer and while cleaning the lint trap a peice of papaer about 4x6 fell into the trap -how to remove? Can I still dry clothes w/o starting a fire?


Please DO NOT try using it with the paper in it. You will need to remove the back cover and disassemble the lint chute to remove the paper. When the back is removed you will see the chute assembly on the left side about 8 screws hold it together. There are 2 screws at the top under the flap that covers the lint trap that need to be removed also.

Dryer runs about 20 minutes on its cycle and cuts out. It will not turn back on without a 20 or so minute rest. I have checked the lint filter as well as the exhaust and they are both clear. Anyone have...


Check the exhaust path, where the lint trap goes. If there is lint in the path, it will retain heat that will shut the unit off. You can't just look and see, you will have to dismantle the path from dryer to final exhaust port to make sure it is all clear.

Lint fell down the lint trap. How do I get it


Luckily, dryers are light. Best thing to do is pull it out until you can remove the back cover. (unplug it first) Then vacuum and clean all the dust and lint you can. This should be a yearly thing at least anyway. Replace the back plug it in and slid it back. I do mine every 6 months or so.

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
