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

How do I access the lint trap of a Whirlpool model LER4634PQ0 dryer? A water hose nozzle fell into the lint trap. PLEASE HELP!


Pull the dryer away from the wall, disconnect it electrically and remove the vent hose (4" diameter hose clamp) and fish out the components that have made their way down the wrong location

Lint filter on LG DLEX2901V sticks up in the corner and catches clothes


Look familiar? LG dryer model DLEX3250W. Lint frame does not fit the slot anymore. NOT BECAUSE OF EXTRA LINT it's because the frame is warping.

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.

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.

Lint trap


http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php This will show you how your dryer is put together. The lint has gone directly to the fan, where it could affect fan performance. You would have to remove the front off the dryer, and the cover off the fan area. It's not a bad idea to clean this area once in a while.

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.
