Estate dryer with lint trap on top- a bottle fell down in the hole- how get OUT?

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?
Thanks

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.

SOURCE: lint trapped inside dryer housing

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.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Lint fell off trap and down into dryer chute.

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!

SOURCE: Individual package of detergent fell into lint trap of Whirlpool

HI, You should remove it. Here is how Normal 0 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.

Thanks
Vic

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

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.

I dropped spray bottle lid into lint trap..was removing lint trap..and lint and bottle lid fell into lint trap...how do i get it out?


Can you see it? A trick I often use is to find some very sticky tape securely attached with the sticky side out on the end of a stick, and try to touch the lid with it and hopefully it will stick to the tape. On the plus side it probably won't do any harm just to leave it if you can't get it out.

Can't find the lint trap


There must be two vents going into the interior of the dryer, one is the intake (where the hot air comes from), the other is the outtake (where the lint trap must be). Locate the two vents and see if one of them has anything removable near it (or if the vent itself has finger holes or something that you can grab and pull or slide it open). All dryers have a lint trap (building codes probably even require it).

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

A sheet of lint fell into the lint chute


Shoud exit dryer in back exhaust pipe. Remove exhaust pipe and remove the sheet. This will prevent blockage and restriction of air flow from dryer to outside vent.
