I hope you just purchased this unit, otherwise it will be full of lint and probably ready to have mechanical failure. The vent is almost always just inside the dryer door on the bottom of the rim. You should see a small handle or lip that you can pull straight up on. If you send me the model numer I can double check this for you. Good luck I hope this helpled you.

I have just rented an apartment with a Haier Front Load Clothes Washer & Dryer Combo XQG65-11SU. It says we need to clean the lint trap after every use. We can't access the lint trap. How do we...


Lint traps are usually inside the front door housing.check for spring loaded latch.it is never necessary to actually dismantle any major part on dryers otherwise it would not be user friendly.go online if you don't have the manual and check on the basic maintenance of the dryer.if it is a condenser dryer you might want to look at the bottom filter which is usually behind the kick plate...again easily accessed.

Cannot locate lint trap to fit my wsm2420 sazww washer dryer combo ge parts no will not fit


In the Kenmore equivalent, the lint trap is on the back wall of the interior of the dryer. If GE is the same then you'll see two vents at the back inside, one is the intake (where hot air enters), the other is the outtake, which contains a lint trap. You might have mistaken both for nonremovable vents. But one of them is removable. It should have finger holes or something to grab. Just pull it and it will pop out without difficulty. It's probably a two-piece unit (a grate on the dryer side and a screen on the exhaust side, with a space in between for collecting lint), which snaps or slips apart easily, then you can clear the lint, and then snap or slip it back together and just push it back in place in the dryer.

Where does the lin tgo on my LG TROMM Model WM3677WH


Per the LG web site, the combo units are self cleaning. The trapped lint is washed out of the system automatically.
You should pay attention to the "cleaning" instructions for this unit. It is important to keep excessive soap buildup cleared out. Also be sure to use the correct soap - special, low suds.

Red light on,check filter


Is this a ventless dryer? I.e. a condensing dryer?
If so, there is a filter that filters the lint out of the water in the condensing unit. Check your owner's manual to find out how to service this. It is usually a little door on the front, bottom of the unit.
If it is not a ventless dryer, then the only filter I know is the lint screen.

Good Luck!

Lint problem


You must GRARANTEE full and free ari flow outside of the building. Typically this type of complaint is related to restricted air flow outside of the machine...normally there is lots of lint, and it exits through the filter, but when flow is restricted, lint remains inside.

Same Problem.. not able to find the lint filter on EWD1477


Lou, thanks for your answer, but I think that the original question is to do with the 'mysterious lint trap' that is mentioned in the manual but isnt actually a part of the machine (ie, its a typo / incorrectly edited manual - copied from another model)

The thing we are trying to find is the lint trap for the condenser unit, which is not the same as the drain pump/filter/trap on the bottom right of the unit (or, at least, shouldn't be - if it existed).

I think this model has a specially designed condenser unit that somehow cleans itself from the action of the washing clothes (in your next run), and flushes the lint from any previous drying cycles away with the rinse water during the next wash.

To help keep things clean, you could try to dissolve or at least break up any gunk buildup inside your machine (likely if your not using the 95 degrees C wash temp setting) by using lots of concentrated bleach (at max temp). However, this could damage the machine, but in my experience it is OK. I am not a employee of electrolux nor am I a service person :)
