Question about Dryers
I have an Estate dryer and a bottle of cleaner fell in the lint trap hole, it is deep, I cannot get it out! IS the dryer safe to run with a bottle stuck in the lint trap?
IS this a fire hazard or can I use it with something stuck in the hole to the lint screen? How can I get it out? Would somehow unscrewing the back of the dryer work?
Go to www.repairclinic.com and enter dryer model. With luck, you will be presented with a list of common replacement parts and may be able to view a generic Estate video showing disassembly. The dryer should not be operated with the vent blocked.

SHUT OFF POWER AND GAS
1. Begin by opening the door removing the two screws on the left side of the door opening.
2. Then remove the screws that secure the door hinges to the cabinet. Lift off the door (may take some wiggling)
3. Grasp the outer top sides of the front panel and pull toward you.
4. Lower the front panel and lift off.
5. At each top corner remove the screw and latch that hold down the top.
6. You should be able to do the rest from here.

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.

for the most if you want to clean it it will take you a while, depending on your model, disconect the unit from the power outlet first,from the back panel remove about 6- to 8 screws an then you will see the inside back panel expose to be vacumm, you'll see the back panel of the shoot that runs behind the dryer, take the i think 4-5 screws an vacumm it, i dont think is going to hurt your machine if a little fell in there, a quick way is try to remove the exhaust tube off the back an insert the vacumm cleaner, to clean the tube going out of the house you can use a strong shopvac, to **** it in or a leaf blower to push it out ...........good luck!

HI, You should remove it. Here is how
UNPLUG the dryer! Remove the two screws under the lint screen and pop the top up by inserting a flat blade screw driver in the gap between the front panel and the top. Remove the rear panel of the dryer and
locate the four 5/16" screws that hold the lint screen housing to the bulk head. Pull the lint screen housing away from the bulkhead and reach in to remove the item that fell.
Please let me know if this help or if I can assist you further.

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.
