Lint trapped inside dryer housing

Moffat Dryer- electric lint is escaping from the lint trap into the housiong of the dryer body. We can't figure out how to get the front or back of the dryer off to get to it and i am afraid of a fire hazard. Any suggestions???

SHUT OFF POWER AND GAS
1. Begin by opening the door removing the two screws on the left side of the door opening.
2. Then remove the screws that secure the door hinges to the cabinet. Lift off the door (may take some wiggling)
3. Grasp the outer top sides of the front panel and pull toward you.
4. Lower the front panel and lift off.
5. At each top corner remove the screw and latch that hold down the top.
6. You should be able to do the rest from here.

Forgot to put the lint trap back into LG Ventless Dryer DLEC855W. Clothing might have gotten stuck inside. Dryer now making grinding noise and drum is moving slowly. Is it time to call a repairman?


The filter simply allows the dryer air to pass through and trap the lint so it will not collect in the exit tube or on the outer vent parts. If anything, the clothes inside the bin will just spin around and be there when you finish. The noise inside the dryer could be from something that was in the pant or shirt pocket and was floating around.

How to Fix Dryer Lint Problems


<span>Instructions</span> Things You'll Need: <ul> <li> <span>Vacuum cleaner</span> </li> <li> <span>Screwdriver</span> </li> <li> <span>Electric leaf blower</span> </li></ul> <ol> <li> Remove the lint trap from the dryer and peel off the accumulated fuzz.<br /> </li> <li> Vacuum the top of the dryer, the floor nearby and underneath for lint at least once a week. When you remove the lint trap, tiny particles fly into the air and settle nearby. Behind and underneath the dryer are favorite hiding places for dryer lint.<br /> </li> <li> Disconnect the vent tube from the rear of the dryer and inspect it every month. Dryer lint accumulates more easily in flexible plastic tubes than rigid aluminum ones, because curves halt the lint's path.<br /> </li> <li> Clean the vent tube leading to the wall annually. As for the tube leading to the exterior, a trick that sometimes works is aiming an electric leaf blower down the tube. The leaf blower can expel the lint through the exhaust on the exterior. Before using the leaf blower, check that all duct work is fastened securely.<br /> </li> <li> Unscrew and remove the back panel on the dryer, if you're mechanically inclined. Particles that escaped the lint trap can accumulate inside the dryer cabinet, so vacuum this area.<br /> </li></ol>

Dropped pen into lint trap. Now Dryer makes a screeching noise.


The pen has fallen into the blower housing and is hitting the fan blades.

Unplug the dryer!! Remove the two screws at the top of the lint trap. Remove the rear panel. Remove the four screws at the bottom that attach the lint filter housing to the blower housing. Then, remove the pen from the blower housing.

F @ P DEGX2 lint trap problem


If you are collecting more on the outside of the house means the lint filter has a tear in it and the lint in being pulled through the tear and pushed out the exhaust. It sounds like you need a new filter but this isn't cheap. If you do it your self it will run about $70 if you get a repair man it will cost about $150.

I smell a burning smell from the dryer. I was running dryer a lot today and tonight I smelt something burning when I opened the door. I noticed my light catcher was full, could this be the problem?


Yes it could have been the lint igniting in the bottom of your dryer in future clean lint trap after every load and take trap door out and vacumn inside trap at least once a month If you ignore the lint trap you could end up with a serious fire so take care of it when you remove screen a certain amnt of the lint falls down into the bottom of dryer and after time a buildup can ignite.. more serious with a gas dryer as the igniter and burner is at the bottom of most gas dryers

Lint is massing toward the bottom of the lint trap


please check your exhaust vent, where the dryer air comes out of the house, this particular pattern is very indicitive of a slow moving exhaust, you may need to clean the duct between the machine and exhaust as well

Samsung dryer DV448AEP/XAA - lint buildup


Yes this is rellatively normal as clothes are just not made the same way any more. You could turn down the drying temperature slightly and put in an anti static drying sheet but it won't make that much difference.
