Question about Magic Chef CYE4000AWW Electric Dryer

2 Answers

How do you clean the dryer lint out of the section right under the lint filter. Looks like the lint has built up and it is really hard to reach. Can the part that holds the filter be removed? I already cleaned the section in the back.

    I already had a lint removal kit. I fixed the problem myself by using a wire hanger that I bent and dug the large lint globs out. Then I used my husband's air compressor and blew out the rest of the lint that I could not reach with the hanger. All the lint was blown into the drum which made it easy to clean out with the vacuum. I washed the lint trap and again cleaned out the dryer vent in the back of the dryer.



    Thanks for your assistance.

Hi and welcome to fixya I am Kelly. What we use are several things depending on what is available. A folded wire coat hanger and a vacuum crevice tool is what I recommend to most home owners. A big fat spot / zip tie works too (the kind the use for hand cuffs) Just a note... if you use fabric softener sheets make sure you wash your lint filter with vinegar and water then soap and water. The fabric sheet particulate over time will clog a lint filter. I do not recommend removing anything unless you simply can not clear it by other means. If you get to the point tht you can not clear it... just respond here and I will pass along how to take it apart. 95% of the time you can clean that area without taking the dryer apart using the directions above. I have even gone the route of using compressed air with a spray nozzle before tearing into them. Just let me know if you need more help.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

How do I do a hard reset of frigidaire dryer GLEQ2152ES1


Unplug it overnight. That will definitely reset it. Did you remove the cover where e the lint filter goes in. It is usually held in by two screws from the inside. There should be two wires leading to two metal strip on that cover. Make sure they are clean. You can also reach down into the lint trap to remove any more lint.

Flashing check filter I have and cleaned all filter, but the dryer is still not drying.


Have you cleaned your outlet vent tubing? Cleaning filters is just one part of really cleaning your dryer. You have to clean your dryer vent from the back of your dryer. Disconnect the vent from behind your dryer and use a shop vac to suck out any lint that mite be built up. Blocked lint tubes are #1 cause of dryer fires.
Hope this helps

There is lint down in the "basin" below the lint filters and I cannot reach it to vacuum it out. I empty the lint screens after each and every load but this has built up in the bottom in the stainles


unplug it,remove the bottom panel,pull out the lint filter,you'll see the metal duct that the lint filter slides into,remove the 1/4 inch screws that hold it in place and remove it and vac it out,if you have a shop vac you can blow the lint off of the motor and blow all the lint in the back of the cabinet forwards and then vac it up,this way you don't have to pull the dryer apart to clean it,you should do this once a year so you don't have any problems with the dryer and your clothes will dry on time,also you should clean out the vent line,pull out the dryer,remove the vent line,if it's a long run stick a leaf blower into the vent line and blow all the lint in it outside,first make sure you don't have a cage or anything that will catch the lint,if you do remove it and don't put it back then go inside and blow out the line.this happens to every dryer even if you clean the lint filter every time.hope this helps and good luck with your dryer

Its not really required but noble. There are only four screws on mine to open, (unplug first). be prepared to support the drum when the front comes forward. use dust brush and lower suction setting if you can on Vac. Short of that, do what you can with a crevice attachment. Best though to clean out the outlet hose because built up lint can be a fire hazard. Clean around the vane outdoors so it seals in the winter.

My BOSCH dryer #WTE86300US keeps stopping in mid cycle and gives the signal F3 which says to check condensation outlet and I have cleaned all the parts and cleaned hose but it will still beep after a few...


I have owned the same dryer for about a year and just started having this F03 problem. The condensation drain hose is the soft flexible rubber hose coming out of the back of the dryer and it drains into the same drain as a washer. It's easy to pull the hose off its connector at the back of the dryer and just blow hard into it to make sure there's no lint clogging the hose and reconnect it to the dryer. Next open the panel on the left of the dryer and thoroughly rinse (water only, no soap) clean the two parts behind the door (first is plastic and behind that is the condensation filter which probably is loaded with lint). Sometimes the lint in the condensation filter channels (those that run from front to back) can be quite stuck. Use a long pipe cleaner to get in there or a garden hose with a spray nozzle. Shake the excess water out of the condensation filter and dry off the outsides of two parts. Clean all the lint out the compartment where the parts go. There is one more crucial step not mentioned in the manual. Once you remove the condensation filter you will see a small plastic panel on the lower wall of the condensation filter slot. Slide a flat blade screwdriver or a blunt table knife under the panel and gently pop it open. Under the panel is a small chamber that you can't see very well where you will find a slurry of lint/water which is what clogs the condensation outlet. With latex gloves reach in there and clean it out. Use paper towel to get it all out. Blow hard into the dryer through the condensation hose to clear up any last bits. Pop the panel back in place as well as the condensation filter and the plastic part. Take out the lint filter (within the dryer drum compartment) and wash it with soap and water. Use an old toothbrush or something to clean the screens thoroughly. Rinse well and dry it completely. Clean all the lint out of the empty compartment. Put all three parts back into the dryer. Clean all lint off the door. Using paper towel moistened with white vinegar clean the two metal sensors in drum compartment on the front wall and lower left. Run the dryer empty but with heat on for a few minutes to make sure all the water is drained out. Now try drying a load. I think it's a good idea to rinse clean the condensation filter at least once a month since it collects a lot of lint. Hope this works for you.

My kenmore 80 series dryer doesn't dry. What should I check? It runs fine and heats up but the clothes are still wet


Whnn a dryer is hot but does not dry the clothes it is a very good indication that the dryer vent, ducting and or internal air passages are clogged with lint build up. Also if you use dryer sheets the lint filter itself can appear clean but actually be clogged up with the softener material from the dryer sheets.

Clean all of the air ducts and passages with a crevice tool. Pull the lint filter and clean UNDER and around the lint filter. Make sure to go outside and remove any lint build up from the vent flapper. Pull the lint filter and wash it with white wine vinegar and a soft brush on BOTH sides. For some of the hard to reach areas a folded un half coat hanger works great for losening lint in those areas. DO NOT use anything sharp.

The dryer needs loads of air moving through the ducts to work properly. You may feel air movement but it should be a very high volume air flow. After a good thorough cleaning your dryer should return to normal operation.

Run for about half the cycle than stops. can restart and it will finish cycle.


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

When a dryer runs for around 30 minutes and shuts off it has reached the maximum operational temperature allowed and is most likely being shut off by the high limit thermostat. This is a safety feature built in to keep from causing a fire due to over heating.

This overheating condition is usually caused by lint buildup in the following areas.

1. The outside dryer vent exit is blocked with lint
2. Flexible vent ducting has lint build-up inside
3. The lint filter in the dryer is restricting airflow
4. The lint filter trap area has a build up of lint restricting airflow across the lint filter.
5. The blower fan / blades / ducting have a lint build up causing low air flow.

Do a tedious insepction for lint buildup and all of the ducting areas that you have access to without disassembly.

Make sure to clean as much of the lint out of the areas that you can see. In the process of cleaning DO NOT use sharp objects to try and free the lint.
If you have to... sacrifice a coat hanger and bend it in half so that it is U shaped to assist you in clearing the lint in stubborn areas.

If you really want to quickly rule out the outside ducting... you can disconnet the Vent hose / duct from the rear of the dryer and then dry a load of clothes. If it does not shut off you know that your external ducting is where the problem lies. Just make sure to reconnect the vent / hose ducting after the test. (Over time can make a large lint mess)

One other thing to check is the dryer door catch to make sure it is not getting weak when the dryer is hot allowing the door open switch to kick off the dryer.

I recently had an ventless Bosch dryer installed (WTE8600US) and I keep receiving this message F:03 which the manual says "check hose for condensation outlet". any advice?


For the F:03 problem on the Bosch Axxis (WTE86300US) do all the things mentioned in Solution #1 above. Sometimes the lint in the condensation filter channels (those that run from front to back)can be quite stuck. Use a pipe cleaner to get in there or a garden hose with a spray nozzle. However there is one more crucial step not mentioned in the manual or in Solution #1. Once you remove the condensation filter you will see a small plastic panel on the lower wall of the condensation filter slot. Slide a flat blade screwdriver and gently pop it open. Under the panel is a small chamber where you will find a slurry of lint/water which is what clogs the condensation outlet. With latex gloves reach in there and clean it out. Blow hard into the dryer through the condensation hose to clear up any last bits. Pop the panel back in place. This should fix your problem.

Sounds like drive belt or drum supports, if the drier is gas I would check it out, could cause a fire, if it is electric still check to make sure it is not rubbing on the electric heat element, or it could be full of lint which is catching fire during normal operation and melting or burning the belt or drum supports.
