Question about Fisher and Paykel SMARTLOAD DE62TG1 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

We recently purchased a home that has a Fisher Paykel washer/dryer (smartload). We purchased it from the previous owners. Before we purchased the home, the owners told us they ordered a part that holds the lint. Two days before we closed on the home they evidently had it replaced. The problem was you cannot remove the lint holder from the dryer. We moved in this week, and I can't get the lint holder out to remove the lint that has accumulated. Very frustrating as I know it was a new replacement. I don't have any of the manuals for either machine and I'm not sure there is a special way to remove the lint holder. I was told as you hold the button in you lift up and it comes out. It will not work by doing this. Please advise what I need to do. If I'm releasing it correctly and it doesn't come out, who would I call that replaced it the end of June to come out and look at it. Thank you for your attention to the matter. Bernadette Downie

Hi Bernadette.

There are different Smartload models, procedure to replace filter is different depending on the model.

The lint filter is hidden behind the lint bucket.On dryers, the lint bucket is located inside the dryer, usually on the left-hand side. You remove it by gently pulling the handle and lifting outwards. It slots easily back into place.
