SOURCE: How do I remove the lint trap holder to clean out the lint inside

















































The font panel must be removed. This may be done by removing the control console (open upper cabinet doors to find screws behind the console). The screws along the top of the lower front panel are easily accessible. Disconnect the two interlock switches, remove the grounding clip attached to the bulkhead & lift the panel off the two lower clips. Inside the panel is a housing that leads to the exhaust blower. It will be packed with lint that may be hardened like papier mache. Just clean out the mess & reverse the process to replace the parts.

There is something caught up in the blower wheel. You will need to disassemble the dryer from the front to be able to get to the blower wheel housing to clear what ever you have jammed there and remove it. Everything is done through the front.

Lg dryer td75125e thermostat tripping


Dryers today have several items installed to prevent fires starting in the wiring or the lint that accumulates.
Some have as many as 6 - 8 different "safety" items.
Dryers today, however, also have some real problems with lint accumulation where you cannot clean it.
Very likely the solution will be a complete teardown of the machine to remove accumulated lint, in the large pipes and nooks and crannies deep inside the machine.
I have had to do several of these, to stop the symptom you are experiencing.
If the dryers is more than 5 years ole, I am not surprised to find a shoe box full of lint trapped inside.
God bless your efforts.

How to Fix Dryer Lint Problems


<span>Instructions</span> Things You'll Need: <ul> <li> <span>Vacuum cleaner</span> </li> <li> <span>Screwdriver</span> </li> <li> <span>Electric leaf blower</span> </li></ul> <ol> <li> Remove the lint trap from the dryer and peel off the accumulated fuzz.<br /> </li> <li> Vacuum the top of the dryer, the floor nearby and underneath for lint at least once a week. When you remove the lint trap, tiny particles fly into the air and settle nearby. Behind and underneath the dryer are favorite hiding places for dryer lint.<br /> </li> <li> Disconnect the vent tube from the rear of the dryer and inspect it every month. Dryer lint accumulates more easily in flexible plastic tubes than rigid aluminum ones, because curves halt the lint's path.<br /> </li> <li> Clean the vent tube leading to the wall annually. As for the tube leading to the exterior, a trick that sometimes works is aiming an electric leaf blower down the tube. The leaf blower can expel the lint through the exhaust on the exterior. Before using the leaf blower, check that all duct work is fastened securely.<br /> </li> <li> Unscrew and remove the back panel on the dryer, if you're mechanically inclined. Particles that escaped the lint trap can accumulate inside the dryer cabinet, so vacuum this area.<br /> </li></ol>

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!

My dryer is smoking and making a noise


This is not good and should be disconnected from power source until problem resolved. It sounds like an accumulation of lint in the dryer base, where motor / belt compartment are located. Vacuuming all the lint from inside the cabinet will reduce the risk of a lint fire. Cleaning the exhaust / vent hose all the way through to the outside of building will allow better air flow. I have used a leaf blower to do this. Disconnect the dryer hose from the back of the dryer, and insert the leaf blower nozzle. Secure hose to leaf blower nozzle as best you can so it is air tight. Switch on the leaf blower for half a minute or so. Any accumulated lint in the dryer vent line will be discharged to the outside of building. Reconnect dryer hose to dryer and test to see if clothes are now drying faster.

The belt attached to the blower wheel on my Whirlpool Cabrio dryer has come off. How do I reattach it?


Unplug the power cord of the Whirlpool dryer from the electrical outlet before installing a new belt. Remove the lint filter from underneath the lint filter cover. 2 Unfasten the screws underneath the lint filter cover with a screwdriver, setting the screws in a safe place. Slide a putty knife between the dryer top and the cabinet near the front, lifting up on the knife to detach the top from the plastic clips on the cabinet.3 Flip the dryer top back against the wall so it is resting on the rear hinges. Locate the screws on the inside of the upper front panel near the top.4 Unfasten the screws on the inside of the upper front panel with a screwdriver. Lift the panel up off the metal clips on the front of the dryer cabinet. 5 Unplug the door switch connector from the back of the upper front panel by hand, setting the panel out of the way. Slide the putty knife between the lower front panel and the dryer cabinet, pulling the knife away from the cabinet to detach the panel from the plastic clips on the cabinet.6 Place a couple of wood blocks under the lip of the dryer drum to hold it in place. Locate the idler arm near the motor at the base of the dryer.7 Move the idler arm forward to relieve the tension on the belt. Take the belt off the motor and idler arm pulleys, lifting the drum up and sliding the belt off the drum.8 Install a new belt around the dryer drum, looping it over the idler arm and around the motor pulley. Move the idler arm back into position to add tension to the new belt.9 Remove the wood blocks from underneath the lip of the dryer drum. Plug the door switch connector into the back of the upper front panel by hand.10 Slide the upper front panel over the metal clips on the front of the dryer cabinet, securing the top of the panel with screws. Fasten the lower front panel to the front of the dryer cabinet, pressing the panel onto the plastic clips by hand.11 Flip the dryer top back down onto the top of the cabinet, pressing down to secure the top to the plastic clips on the cabinet. Fasten the screws underneath the lint filter cover with a screwdriver.12 Slide the lint filter back under the lint filter cover by hand. Plug the power cord of the Whirlpool dryer into the electrical outlet.

    Remove the vent duct at the back and clean out all of the lint. Next, find the air inlet to the heater elements and make sure there is no lint accumulated there. Inspect the back of the drum (inside) for any plastic debris (something left in a pocket?) that might have melted and stuck on there. Last resort: remove the dryer cabinet and drum, and inspect the heater and its wiring. If the insulation on the wires appears burned or is broken off, cut off the damaged part of the wiring and replace its terminals, then polish the heater terminals before reattaching the wires (a tarnished connection will cause the wire to overheat). Clean out the heater if necessary, but be careful not to stress the heater element. Used heater wire is brittle and cracks or breaks easily.
