If the filter isn't damaged then this is normal,you should take off the bottom panel and use a shop vac to blow out all the lint inside the dryer especially the motorand blow it forward and vac it up so you don't have to pull the drum to clean it,then remove the lint filter and take off the duct that the filter slides into,now go outside and make sure nothing is blocking the flapper like an animal cage that comes with some of the outside vents,if it's clear go inside and remove the vent line,if it's a long run from the dryer to the outside blow it out with a leaf blower,you should do this once a year and your clothes will always dry on time and your motor and other parts will last longer,when the lint builds up the dryer runs hotter and longer and that's what damages the dryer

Dropped something down the lint trap


If it's a metal utensil that responds to magnetism, try a magnet on a string, or one of those telescoping magnetic picker-upper tools to get it out.

How do you wire the dryer MDE300AYW


Instructions
    • 1 Remove the lint screen from the dryer. If you are unsure how to remove the lint trap, refer to your owner's manual, as removal directions vary among Maytag models.
    • 2 Use your fingers to remove large chunks of lint from the lint screen. You should remove the lint from the lint trap after every load.
    • 3 Run the lint screen under the faucet. Use hot water and thoroughly wet down both sides.
    • 4 Scrub both sides of the lint screen with a wet nylon scrub brush. Rinse the screen again under hot water to remove loosened buildup. Allow the lint screen to air-dry on a towel before putting it back inside of the dryer.
    • 5 Make a paste of powdered laundry soap and warm water into a small bowl. Use three parts powdered detergent to one part water. Stir with a spoon until a paste forms.
    • 6 Dip a soft rag into the paste. Wipe down the entire interior of the dirty Maytag dryer with the rag and paste. Apply more paste to the cloth as needed.
    • 7 Rinse the interior of the dryer with a damp rag to remove the paste.
    • 8 Dry a load of damp towels in the Maytag dryer. Run a complete dry cycle to remove any residue left inside.
    • 9 Wipe down the exterior of the dryer with a rag moistened with all-purpose household cleaner. You can also use the household cleaner to remove certain stains from the interior of the dryer. Make sure the cleaner you are using is noninflammable.

Our GE Profile DPSB613ED2WW dryer has been losing drying efficiency for the past few months. It now takes three cycles to completely dry a load. The dryer is heating (although we assume not correctly) and...


How is the vent discharge air flow out the back of dryer? If not very strong check out lint trap cavity for blockage or obstuction causing lint to build up, blocking air flow from drum cavity. Once found a pocket comb that had got into lint trap housing and created a lint dam blocking air flow.

How do I clean the lint out of the Kenmore Eite He3 past the lint screen?


Remove lint screen. Remove bottom front kick panel (usually three to four screws on very bottom front), There is a metal lint filter air duct assembly that has three to four screws holding it on. Usually one on each upper side of the duct, and one that has a bent metal bracket holding the bottom to the blower housing. This metal duct is dead center in the dryer under the door and ducts over to the bottom left. Remove the screws and pull the duct down and out. You can now clean this assembly. Needless to say, always unglug the dryer or turn it off at the circuit breaker before doing this job. I recommend that you do this at least once a year on the dryer, and clean out the washer lint and coin catcher at least once a year. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists.

I can't totally clean the lint trap on my PYE2300AYW Maytag dryer. How can I completely remove the lint trap to clean it?


If lint has gotten past the lint trap, you can attempt to use a brush just like the previous poster suggested. If that doesn't work you'll have to disassemble the unit. You only need to lift the top up and remove two screws on each side that connects the front to the side panels. The front should then swivel outward. Be sure to detach the door switch and wire guide from the front panel before completely removing it. You can then lift the front panel up and away. You'll need to clean the opening in the bottom of the front panel and also the entrance to the blower.

Need to know how to clean lint trap and where is lint trap located on the Kenmore He3 washer


The only trap on a Kenmore Elite HE3 is in the drain pump. The following link explains how to access and clean it out:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385844-checking_drain_pump_kenmore_elite_front

Read through the link provided and let me know if you have any questions. I personally own one of these washers and have repaired them many times. If you are experiencing drain problems, the problem will most commonly be attributed to the drain pump trap becoming clogged with debris. There's usually an error code associated with this problem of "F02". If you attempt to clean the drain pump and you discover the pump to be clear, check the drain lines (especially the line running from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the pump). If all these preliminary checks don't solve the problem, the manufacturer recommends replacing the drain pump.

If this is not what you were talking about, please post back and elaborate a bit more so I can understand the problem you are having. I hope this helps you.

Frigidaire dryer, lots of lint getting past screen.


Hello,
Here is a link to an exploded view and parts list for your dryer. http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php
If you are certain that the filter is not compromised or damaged and is properly seated into the housing , you may have a problem with the housing itself whereby lint is getting into the blower thru a break in that housing.. I would examine that area for damage.. and make sure when you reinsert the filter, it is seated all the way down.. Hope this helps you... BTW: over time, it is not unusual for lint to build up in the duct since some of that lint is smaller than the filter media and will work its way thru.. If you are getting that degree of lint build up very quickly then you may have a problem as mentioned above..
Regards,
Rick
