If the lint screen is on top you need to take the lint trap out remove the 2 screws. now go to the back panel remove all the screws out of it and take it off make sure you have unpluged it from the wall and removed the exsaust. now to the left you will see the blower housing remove the screws i believe there are three or four and they are located at the bottom of the blower houseing. pull the blower away from the bulkhead and you will see what you have dropped. let me know how it goes.

Dropped a ring into the dryer lint hold where you would clean out the lint and when you turn it on it makes a terrible noise, how can I get the ring out?

You may wind up tearing your dryer apart to retrieve the ring. If so, go to and enter the dryer model. You will be presented with a list of common replacement parts and may be able to view a generic video for your brand showing disassembly and identification of major parts.

Dropped something down the lint trap

If it's a metal utensil that responds to magnetism, try a magnet on a string, or one of those telescoping magnetic picker-upper tools to get it out.

Dropped papertowel into lint screen---how do I retrieve it

take the lint screen out and turn on the dryer,, holding the lint screen door open, it should just blow out, if not,, you have to unplug the unit, remove the back,, and get into the lint trap , if you can see the paper towel,, auto parts stores have a long pick up tool that has Little prongs at the end,, and you can reach down with it and grab the thing !!

Dropped bleach pen into lint trap. How do I get it out?

its not too hard to get out.
you will need a #2 phillips screwdriver and or a 1/4" socket driver
remove lint trap
remove 2 screws at lint trap
unplug unilt
open the top (2 clips between lid and front panel in the crack, push them with a butter knife or putty knife to release top) opens like a hood
pull out dryer and pull off rear panel
on the left hand side there is a metal duct like thing lol
that leads to the lint trap at the top.
there should be 4 screws at the bottom where it gets round.
remove them, and wiggle the duct open. your pen should be there..

Sponge fell into lint trap. Is there something I can buy to put down the lint trap to try and get it out?

Surely you should be able to remove lint trap, or you would not be able to clean it!!!!.
Otherwise try a piece of wire with a hook on the end , and retrieve it that way.
