Hi, UNPLUG the dryer! You will need to remove the two screw at the lint filter. Now you will need to remove the rear panel of the dryer. Looking at the dryer from the rear with the back off, you will see the lint screen housing on the left side. There are 4) 5/16" screws holding that on. remove those screws and you should be able to pull the housing away from the bulkhead enough to reach the close pin. If the housing does not move far enough, you will ned to raise the top panel up to give the housing more room to move.
I hope this helps you. If I can assist you further, please let me know.
Please rate my respons so that I will see how I am doing.

How do I remove the top of the dryer?

They are all attached with clips - just place a long screw driver where the clip is and pry it open taking pains not to scratch anything

I dropped a toy down lint chute

There are 2 screws at either side of lint chute. Remove them. Make sure dryer is unplugged for next part. Remove back over by removing 1/4 drive screws. Looking at the back, on the left you will see the back of the lint chute. remove the four 1/4" screws around the bottom and lift and remove the chute. There you will find your toy. be careful around this as the edges are sharp.

I need to change the door switch. I have the part. Should I take off the top or the front to change that part?

For the model dryer you have listed, the easiest way to access the door switch is to lift the top panel. The switch can then be removed and replaced by following these steps:

1. UNPLUG the dryer and remove the lint screen.

2. Remove the two screws that were under the lint screen and lift the top panel.

3. Unplug the door switch connector plug and any ground wire that may be installed on the casing.

4. Remove defective switch and replace.

NOTE: Now would be a good time to do a routine inspection and cleaning of the interior dryer cabinet to ensure there's no lint build up.

Once repairs are completed, lower the top panel back in place and reinstall the two screws along the lint screen opening.

NOTE: Placing a piece of duct tape over the dryer vent chute will help safeguard against dropping anything down in the blower fan assembly. If you drop any screws down the chute, you will need to remove the dryer back panel to retrieve them.

If you have any questions about this repair, or if the model number is different, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Whirlpool LGB6400LW suddenly takes multiple cycles to dry clothes. It used to do a great it still gets kind of hot but takes 2-3 runs to get the clothes dry. It's 6 years old. Help! Thanks!

Try vacuuming out the exhaust vent hose and as much of the interior air passages as possible. Soak the lint screen in hot water and detergent to remove fabric softener deposits from the screen. Vacuum the burner intake and exhaust vents as well. Hope this helps!

A clothes pin and piece of paper fell down the lint trap when I was cleaning the screen. How do I reach the pin and paper to get them out?

This may take you awhile to do, but once you get to it you may find a lot more than that down there. You have to remove the back on most all dryers. If the lint trap is on top, there is a metal chute that lint and other objects fall down.Remove the back and you will see what I am talking about.Once this is done, it is fairly easy to remove the collars that go down to the lint hose. You will then be able to clean all of the lint build up down below that gets by the trap.
Good luck, Sincerely, shastalaker7

Greetings: Dropped a clothespin into the area under the lint filter. Its not in the cabinet, so I assume it went nto the blower. Rotating the blower by hand does not generate any extra noises. How...

Unplug the unit.
Remove the top panel(two bolts in the rear metric 10 or Phillips will work) There are four screws across the top front of the control panel remove those and the panel will swing out and down,move it back and forth while pulling upward it has plastic clips on the bottom that keep it in place.follow the wires from the panel to the control board and unplug them or you can just lay the whole panel on top of the unit.
Open the dryer door and remove the two phillips screws on either side at the bottom of the door opening,then remove the four screws across the top of the panel it will lean out toward you,unplug the door/light switch and lift the front panel off the bottom clips.the blower housing will be exposed.

For jsrock516, it's a top lint filter. 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.
