My kenmore elite dryer that i bought 2 years ago lint trap corner is catching my clothes and tearing them. we had it replaced and its doing it again. I am tired of messing with it. Please help.

don't know if you already had this fixed,usually this is caused by not having your dryer cleaned out,the lint builds up inside the duct that the lint filter slides down into and has to be removed and cleaned out.also in some of the kenmore dryer ducts there's a metal clip inside the duct that can come loose and hold the lint filter up.these are the two most likely causes for this to happen.

Dryer "clean lint filter" message

Hello. Begin by unplugging the plug on the dryer. Then pull out the filter and thoroughly examine the space that the filter slides into looking for any lint. Remove any lint that you find. Put the filter back and lastly plug the dryer back in.

These steps should solve the problem. If not, then the lint sensor has gone bad and should be replaced. If you wish to do that yourself you can go to Enter the model number of the dryer and then you will see the parts diagrams allowing you to locate that lint sensor, and even order a new one. Joe

How do I get the top off my dryer to retrieve something that is down by the drumm . The back is already off for cleaning.

if it has lint filter on top, remove 2 screws in filter housing , pull top forward and lift. if no lint filter on top, use paint scraper to disengage clips about 2 inches in on either side between top and front panel in front of machine..

Noisy dryer after cleaning lint

There is something caught up in the blower wheel. You will need to disassemble the dryer from the front to be able to get to the blower wheel housing to clear what ever you have jammed there and remove it. Everything is done through the front.

Kenmore Model 110.68422700; the dryer cycles all the settings

when was the last time you cleaned out the dryer?you should clean the dryer once a year anyway so try this,unplug the dryer,remove the lint filter,take out the 2 phillips screws in front of the filter on the top panel.pull out the dryer,remove the vent line from the back of dryer and remove the back panel.on the left side you'll see the duct that the filter slides down into,take out the 4 screws that hold it in and remove it and clean it out,vac off the back of dryer,if you have a shop vac put it on blow and blow out the blower wheel and the heater and blow out the duct to get it clean.if the vent line is long i use a leaf blower to blow out the vent line,go outside first and make sure the duct outside is not blocked with any lint or anything and make sure the flapper opens freely.put it back together,except for the 2 phillips screws on top,with a screw driver pop up the top panel,there are 2 clips on each side that locks the top panel to the frame,just stick the screw driver in between the front panel and the top panel and pop it up,you'll see 2 5/16 screws one on each side around 4 inches down from the top on the inside,remove them and disconnect the door switch harness,use a screw driver to stick in between the harness to pull it apart to make it easier to get it apart,pull up on the front panel one side at a time and remove the front panel,vac out the inside of dryer,blow off the motor and blow all the lint from the back to the front so you don't have to pull the drum,if you know how to reinstall the belt take out the drum,the timer moves when the heat shuts down but if the dryer is loaded with lint the heater will not run correctly because of bad air movement and the clothes won't dry so try this first and let me know what happens

My Neptune is not drying the clothes in one 90 minute time period, and it's sweating aroung the door and there is wet lint around the door,

you need to clean out the dryer,you should do this once a year so you don't have a lint fire and so this doesn't happen again,your lucky you didn't damage any parts,the dryer runs hotter than normal like this,take off the vent line,if it's a long run from the dryer to the outside i use a leaf blower to blow all the lint out of the line,make sure nothing is blocking the outside vent,now you gotta clean out the duct that's below the lint filter,if you have a shop vac it blows on the other end,i take the dryer apart when i do a clean out but you can blow the lint out,stick the nozzle in the left side and the lint will blow up and out on the right side,if you have a brush for cleaning out dryers you can stick that down in there and pull some of the lint out like that,you should take the front panel off and vac out the inside where the motor is also,blow the lint forward with the shop vac so you don't have to pull the drum out,sounds like alot of work but it isn't and your dryer will last longer,unplug the dryer,open the door and take the four screws out to take the front panel off, 2 in the door and the other 2 opposite the door screws remove the door and pull the front off

Want to remove the lint basket that the filter

your best bet is to remove the front panel of the dryer and pull the front drum/blower duct assembly off the machine. You can then fully access all areas of the duct and also clean all the lint build up inside your dryer.

Bosch Nexxt 800 series dryer E01 error

My wife has a Bosch Premium dryer that had drying problems. The lint filter would get cleaned but the machine still did not operate correctly, as you explained above. Her machine was made in 2005 and the lint screen, the plastic slotted unit in front of the lint filter was the problem. It gets clogged up with hair/lint that never makes it to the filter. I tried a shop vac to vacuum it but the problem was still there. Get a pistol cleaning kit for a 22 cal gun. Pull the lint filter out & then take the pistol rod and insert it from the drum side into each slot and pull out the tons of lint. Pull the lint off the rod when done and take a flame to burn the rest off as the rod is a brass brush with small wires on it.

The check filter light is just a reminder light and cannot be reset.  Nothing to worry about.  Just keep the filter clean before each use.
