Lint fell down the lint trap. How do I get it

Lint fell down the lint trap. How do I get it out? I pulled the lint mesh piece out and the lint slide off and down into the hole. I'm not sure where it ends up. The lint trap is on the top right of my dryer.

Luckily, dryers are light. Best thing to do is pull it out until you can remove the back cover. (unplug it first) Then vacuum and clean all the dust and lint you can. This should be a yearly thing at least anyway. Replace the back plug it in and slid it back. I do mine every 6 months or so.

A clothes pin and piece of paper fell down the lint trap when I was cleaning the screen. How do I reach the pin and paper to get them out?


This may take you awhile to do, but once you get to it you may find a lot more than that down there. You have to remove the back on most all dryers. If the lint trap is on top, there is a metal chute that lint and other objects fall down.Remove the back and you will see what I am talking about.Once this is done, it is fairly easy to remove the collars that go down to the lint hose. You will then be able to clean all of the lint build up down below that gets by the trap.
Good luck, Sincerely, shastalaker7

How do u lift the top of the dryer so i can get in the drum of the dryer


Generally in the older dryers, the top has hinges in the back, that allow you to flip it up. To keep it from opening, there are two catches on the front base panel (about 2 inches in from each corner) and two screws under the lint trap door. First, disconnect electrical power cord, precautionary. Then remove the two screws under the lint trap door, that attach the top to the lint trap. (The next step exploits the slight flexibility of the dryer chasis.) Slide the top piece forward of the base (away from the back side) about a half inch, then lift the front edge of the top piece. (Sliding forward should allow you to clear the catches that hold the top down.) You're in....

Lint fell back into lint trap. how can i get it out? already looked in back.


An appliance store can sell you a brush that is attached to a long wire. It is made specifically for removing lint from dryers. I have seen them at walmart and other places but for sure at an appliance store. Good luck.

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.
