How do run your dyer without an exhaust leading outside.

Step one: Take a 5 gallon bucket and fill it 1/4 with water.
Step two: Get a piece of the flexible pipe and bend it to sit over the bucket.
Step three: Get a metal coat hanger and bend it to hold the tubing level with the top of the bucket.
Step four: ENJOY! It's now ready. Turn the dryer on and the lint will get stuck in the water. However this will generate a lot of humidity.

Model MTW5840TWO water will not drain on the spin cycle

Perhaps none. Have you checked to see if the lint filter is blocked? Usually, the lint filter can be accessed from the front bottom of the machine, often behind a small door. Open the door, open the filter (have a bucket available to catch water) and remove the blocking ball of lint.

I do not recommend venting a dryer inside. I suspect you are trying to save heat you have paid for. A dryer will add a lot of moisture to the area it is in as well as secondary lint that gets through the lint screen. This will cause condensation on any cool surface. In a basement this can lead to mold and mildew. But if you want you can make your own lint trap and if you need the humidity. Get a 5 gallon plastic bucket, some 4" aluminum vent pipe and 90 degree elbows. Direct the dryer exhaust into the bucket filled with some water. This will catch most of the secondary lint. Clean often and do not let the bucket run dry. There are some gallon buckets on the market that look a lot nicer but they restrict the airflow to much and this can cause problems with heating elements and thermal fuses. Never and I say Never vent a Gas Dryer inside.
Hopes this helps

Do I need to clean the filter behind the lower front panel? I removed the panel but nothing in the owners manual that describes it. I heard that you need to do this every year or so for general...

Remove the lower kick plate. Unscrew the two screws holding the kick plate in place, and gently pull off to remove. The kick plate is the lower outside cover of the washing machine.

Place a small bucket under the white hose. Remove the cap on the white hose by untwisting it. Allow any remaining water in the hose to drain into the small bucket. There shouldn't be much water, but there can be some.

Look inside the white hose. Remove any visible obstructions or lint.

Look inside the hose cap. This is where the lint filter is. Remove any visible lint with your fingers. Rinse the hose cap under warm water to remove any remaining lint.

Twist the cap back onto the white hose. Put the kick plate back in place. Screw back on.

Lint trap

First you need to remove three screws on the front lower panel. This will expose a round "plug" to your right. This is the lint/drain trap. Place a bucket under the plug. Slowly unscrew this plug and aloow the water to drop into the bucket. Make sure your plug is clean and reset it.

There is actually an indoor vent kit that consists of a dryer hose and a lint bucket that you place water in. The hose attaches to the dryer and connects to a lint bucket that holds a small amount of water. The concept is that the vent blows air straight down into the bucket and any lint gets trapped in the water. On the negative side, you will have to empty the bucket from time to time and keep it in a location where it is not going to get tipped over. You also need to make sure the dryer hose does not get kinked or pinched off in a way that prevents air flow, or your dryer will begin to back up with lint, which could cause dryer failure and/or a fire. Is there any reason why you can't vent to the outdoors? The reason I ask is because running a dryer in this fashion can cause humidity build up and mildew in your home over a long periods of time. Nylon will also tend to collect lint and clog. You will have to be diligent about keeping it cleaned. I hope this helps you. You can purchase an indoor vent kit at most appliance stores.
