Usually there's a kick plate or panel at very bottom front of dryer. Take that off, then you can take the front off and then the top to look inside.

You will need to remove the hinges, they lift up and out once screws are removed, the the two white plastic pieces with the screws these are for door reversal, then the front panel lifts off. Good Luck Tim

How do I get into my whirlpool duet front loader dryer to clean the lint out


Hello. First, turn the power off to the dryer or remove the power cord from the AC outlet. Next, locate the 2 screws in-between the upper and lower front panels and at the bottom front of the dryer--there will be 2-3 screws, usually 1/4 inch hex head, and remove them--use a magnetic nut driver, it makes it a whole lot easier! (note:sometimes, to replace the panel, you have to push up on the bottom of the panel hard to get the screw holes to line up again.) Set the panel aside. Open the dryer door and remove the lint screen from the holder. Close the door. Next, notice the blower housing cover, pic 3, #45, lower left corner. There should be 3-4 screws holding the cover to the blower housing. Remove the screws and cover--use caution--most metal edges inside a dryer are unfinished and razor sharp--akin to putting your hand inside a box of razor blades(ask me how I know this, lol). Remove any lint build-up inside the cover with a vacuum. Again, using a vacuum, suck out any lint from inside the blower housing and fan as best you can. Take care to not damage the fan blades! Now, try to remove as much lint build-up as you can with the vacuum. Be especially careful when vacuuming around the mouth of the heater element. Do the best you can. At this point, re-assemble the dryer using the reverse of assembly. If there is still a lot of lint inside the cabinet and you can't reach it--STOP! In order to remove the remaining lint requires removal of the front bulkhead(large metal plate that supports the front of the drum), drum belt, and drum from the cabinet. This is INVOLVED and can be very difficult to re-assemble if you have never done it before. Call for service. I hope I helped you!

I want to clean the inside of my DLG0452W. Hasn't been done in 10-11 years. This is all part of venting. It properly. Can I take the bottom panel off?


i looked up your model and it looks like you haave to remove the top panel and then the front panel to get to the inside cabinet,if on the front you do have an access panel on the bottom then yes you want to remove the bottom front panel,pull out the lint filter,remove the duct that the lint filter slides into and clean that,then with a shop vac vac out the cabinet,then set the shop vac up to blow and blow all the lint from the back forwards and blow off the motor,this way you don't have to pull the belt and drum.when that's done go to the back and remove the vent line from the dryer,if it's a long run to the outside,go outside and make sure the duct is open,no cage or screen blocking it,go back inside,stick a leaf blower into the vent line and blow it out.do this once a year and your dryer will run better and last longer but mostly you won't have a fire.hope this helps.

How do I clean the lint from the dryer past the lint trap?


you need to unplug the dryer,then with a putty knife stick it in between the top panel and the front panel and there are clips one on each side that you release with the putty knife and remove the front panel or you could have two 5/16 inch screws on the bottom of the front panel but i believe your model has the clips,when you remove the front panel you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,vac out the inside cabinet where the motor is,put it back together then pull out the dryer and remove the vent line from the rear,if it's a long run to the outside you can stick a leaf blower inside the vent line and blow all the lint out to the outside hood,before you blow it out go outside and make sure the hood is clear then blow out the line,

Can't find the lint cleaner


In order to locate the lint filter for your dryer you must first remove the door. to do this first open the door and remove the screw that hold the hinges to the front of the dryer. once the door is off. there are 2 screws at the bottom of the front access panel. once the screws are out the panel will come off of its brackets by pulling the bottom out first. once this panel has been removed you will be able to see the inside of the dryer and the lint screen is directly behind this panel on the LEFT hand side and it will just pull straight out. if you need a new one the part number is 33001808.hope this helps

Thanks
