Question about Bosch Nexxt WTMC 3300 Electric Dryer
My Bosch Nexxt electric dryer works fine but how do you clean the lint filter area? I can pull the filter and clean it but there is always lint (even coins!) in the bin.
My method of cleaning is to take a long swiffer or attach tape and hope to get as much as possible. There has got to be a better way!
I have the same problem with the lint clogging at the bottom of the filter area. I have tried un-screwing the front plate but you still can't get at the lint. I will try the vacuum trick to see if that solves the design flaw!

I bought 2 ft of 5/8" OD x 1/2" ID clear flexible vinyl tubing at the hardware store. I could squeeze it into the narrow tip of our vacuum cleaner and then used that setup to clean while my wife held a flashlight. I could direct the tubing where I wanted it to be.
At another point, I had dropped a small plastic tube into the area; I removed this with a "wire/spring" wrapped "picker upper" (sorry, I don't know it's official name) with three prongs at one end that were moved in and out by a plunger at the other end. Don't know if this would work with a penny, though.

Bosch in their manual suggests using a vacum with a narrow tip to go into the hole and remove the build up.

I hate this dryer overall..but, re: the lint: i purchased a long bristol brush from brookstone that is made for these kind of situations. It kind of looks like a long "rifle" cleaning barrel. it helps alittle. just stil it in the dryer and keep turning the handle and try to collect lint as possible. overall..i hate this damn dryer plus it takes forever to dry approx: 1 1/2 hrs to dry one load. my bosch washer model wfmc 6400 series sucks also..it shakes constantly throught out the entire wash..and drain cloggs alost.
