Question about KitchenAid Dryers
Disconnect Power. Lift Cover on lint filter. Remove two Phillips screws taking care NOT to allow them to fall into the blower housing. Next, place a putty knife in the space between the upper and lower panel at the front of the dryer about 4 inches in from either side to push up the retaining clips while pulling on the lower panel. This will release the lower panel and give you full access to all the main components and most internal areas needing cleaning.
The only area affected by running with no lint filter is accessed by removing the rear panel. With rear off, the filter housing on the left will have several 5/16" hex head screws to be removed for access to the blower wheel and housing interior. With screws removed go to front and insert putty knife in the seam between the top and front panels about 4 inches in from both sides. Lift top at same time and raise when disengaged.The filter housing can now be moved sufficiently to vacuum the interior from the rear removing any large foreign objects first.
You have now cleaned all the dryer areas that need cleaning. Don't forget the airflow through the vent line of the house.
Reverse the above process to reassemble unit. Good Luck.
