Question about Whirlpool LER4634J Electric Dryer
If the sponge fell down inside where your lint filter goes, that could be a problem. It is entirely possible that the sponge was blown out of the machine and there is no problem at all. But, if you cannot retrieve it with a clothes hanger or anything like that, you will have to take the dryer apart. So yes, the sponge could cause a clog and clogs are bad. The hot air must be able to get out of the dryer and blown outside with the least resistance possible.
Taking the dryer apart. UNPLUG the dryer from the wall. Pull the dryer away and get behind. Remove the dryer vent and back panel (8 1/4 inch screws). On the left is the lint chute where the sponge could possibly be. Simply remove the 4-6 1/4 screws and take the chute out. Look inside for the obstruction :) If it is nowhere to be found, it made it out of the dryer. Check the vent behind the dryer and the exit of the house. If it is nowhere to be found it could be inside the vent going to the outside of your house. The vent needs to be cleaned at that point to get the sponge out.
