On some models, what you need to do is open the back plate. should be about 10 quarter in screws. on other models, you would take the bottom kick-plate off by using a putty knife to puck in the 2 clips so they can release.

Dryer is not drying the clothes


If it is taking a long time to dry, but still has heat, try cleaning out under the lint trap. Take the whole lint trap off and clean the panel and path the lint is sucked through. I did this to mine and it made a HUGE difference! There was a ton of lint packed around the panel and only a small opening left where the air flowed into the exhaust.
With our dryer (Maytag) I had to take the front panel off to get to the area where the lint was.

there is a vent cleaning kit that can be baught at lowes or home depot and comes with attachments to get down inside the lint trap to be vaccumed out.
you can also lift the lid and remove the front panel and get to the trap area

I can't totally clean the lint trap on my PYE2300AYW Maytag dryer. How can I completely remove the lint trap to clean it?


If lint has gotten past the lint trap, you can attempt to use a brush just like the previous poster suggested. If that doesn't work you'll have to disassemble the unit. You only need to lift the top up and remove two screws on each side that connects the front to the side panels. The front should then swivel outward. Be sure to detach the door switch and wire guide from the front panel before completely removing it. You can then lift the front panel up and away. You'll need to clean the opening in the bottom of the front panel and also the entrance to the blower.

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..

Odor around the lint trap, cleaned but persists


The lint trap is an opening into the dryer vent and vent pipe. The dryer needs to be pulled out from the wall, the vent pipe disconnected and then the back of the dryer and the entire pipe cleaned of lint and other debris. this is the only way to get rid of the odor.

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.
