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

Shut off after pulling out the lint catcher. It had some BB's that fell down the shoot. Then shut off. Will not restart. Is there a safety switch that may have tripped (fire safety)


if the dryer was running and you pulled out the lint filter most likely all the lint got removed and jammed the blower wheel.unplug it,remove the vent line and the back panel,then remove the duct that the lint filter slides into and clean it out.i'm assuming this is a whirlpool or kenmore,you could have cooked the thermal fuse also,it's a white piece next to the duct,it has two wires going to it and the part number is 3392519,check it with a meter,you have to pull at least one wire off when you read it out to get the true reading,vac out the duct and all the lint,if the vent line is long,blow it out with a leaf blower,all the lint will blow outside through the outside vent,then you can remove the front and vac out all the lint in the cabinet and clean off the motor.good luck

Taking long time to dry the clothes


Due to a dryer either heats or no heat , I would suggest pulling the dryer out and removing the vent hose . Dry a load of clothes to see if they dry normally . If they do , this verifys that the vent hose is either kinked ( restricting air flow ) , or , if the vent runs UP inside the wall , there is a restriction between the inside vent hose to the outside vent . May have to go into the attic to clean .

My dryer take too long to dry the clothes.


hello. When the dryer takes too long, it is a sign that lint has built up in the vent pipe, in the rear of the dryer or even in the lint catcher. Check out all of these areas and remove the lint.

My Indesit WIDL126 washer/dryer doesn't dry clothes


You have an air flow problem. This usually happens when the exhaust pipe/vent gets clogged. Clean/inspect the vent outlet, the pipe, the inlet, and the filter/lint catcher area.

Improper air flow prevents the moisture from being vented out of the dryer.

Dryer has hot air but takes 2-3 hours to dry clothes. What can I do?


This is almost always due to lint build up in the vent pipe. pull the dryer out from the wall, disconnect the vent pipe. look inside the rear of the dryer and into the pipe. remove lint that is present. go out doors and examine the vent from that end. finally remove the lint catcher in the dryer and look in there. remove any lint you see.

lift your lint lid and remove the 2 screws you see then pry the top up at the edges with a wide flat screw driver. If you have a rear cover remove it then remove the 3 crews that hold your lint catcher assembly to the blower housing and you should find your bulb
