How do I get into my whirlpool duet front loader dryer to clean the lint out


Hello. First, turn the power off to the dryer or remove the power cord from the AC outlet. Next, locate the 2 screws in-between the upper and lower front panels and at the bottom front of the dryer--there will be 2-3 screws, usually 1/4 inch hex head, and remove them--use a magnetic nut driver, it makes it a whole lot easier! (note:sometimes, to replace the panel, you have to push up on the bottom of the panel hard to get the screw holes to line up again.) Set the panel aside. Open the dryer door and remove the lint screen from the holder. Close the door. Next, notice the blower housing cover, pic 3, #45, lower left corner. There should be 3-4 screws holding the cover to the blower housing. Remove the screws and cover--use caution--most metal edges inside a dryer are unfinished and razor sharp--akin to putting your hand inside a box of razor blades(ask me how I know this, lol). Remove any lint build-up inside the cover with a vacuum. Again, using a vacuum, suck out any lint from inside the blower housing and fan as best you can. Take care to not damage the fan blades! Now, try to remove as much lint build-up as you can with the vacuum. Be especially careful when vacuuming around the mouth of the heater element. Do the best you can. At this point, re-assemble the dryer using the reverse of assembly. If there is still a lot of lint inside the cabinet and you can't reach it--STOP! In order to remove the remaining lint requires removal of the front bulkhead(large metal plate that supports the front of the drum), drum belt, and drum from the cabinet. This is INVOLVED and can be very difficult to re-assemble if you have never done it before. Call for service. I hope I helped you!

Do you need to vacuum out the lint & how


There are several ways to remove lint from a dryer and vacuum is 1 option. Put the skinniest attachment on the end of a vacuum, pull out the lint screen and put vacuum hose with attachment as far down as it will reach to pull out excess lint that the screen didn't catch. Another, simpler option is to get a wand especially designed for removing lint from your dryer. It cost about $5 in most stores and has bristles on it. You remove the lint screen and work the wand by hand up and down with the lint clinging to the wand. Either way, it's a very good idea to do this operation every few months.

Maytag dryer model #PYE2200AYW how to remove lint compartment once I removed the screws in the front


Instructions
Things You'll Need:

Nylon scrub brush Liquid detergent Vacuum

1.Remove the lint screen, which usually is located in the front of a Maytag dryer. Gently pull it up and out, and remove the lint with your fingers.
2. Use hot water and wet both sides of the lint screen. Use a nylon scrubbing brush and a little bit of liquid dish soap or laundry detergent to scrub the screen clean of lint and fabric softener buildup. Rinse both sides thoroughly with hot water. Towel dry and replace the lint screen when dry. Maytag states that owners should do this every six months.
3.Clean the exhaust every two years, as recommended by Maytag. Whoever installed your dryer had to install the exhaust vent. Unplug your dyer and unscrew the vent from the back of the dryer. Use a vacuum attachment or your hands to remove any clogged lint and replace. You may need to do the same thing to the other end that is attached to the wall.
4.Clean the dryer cabinet. According to Maytag, a professional should remove lint from the dryer cabinet every two years. This may be a good time to have him clean out the vents as well, rather than doing it yourself, if preferred.
5.Clean your lint screen on a regular basis. Maytag states that you should clean the lint screen with your fingers before using the dryer each time. Be sure to replace it all the way so it can work properly.

Flashing container light. what is this? Dryer


Try taking out the lint screen and scrubbing it well in the sink with hot water and a brush. If you havent cleaned out below the lint screen, get a vacuum and a crevice tool and remove any standing lint as well as cleaning the vent. Bosch lint screens clog easily especially if you are a big fabric softener user.

Whirlpool LGB6400LW suddenly takes multiple cycles to dry clothes. It used to do a great job...now it still gets kind of hot but takes 2-3 runs to get the clothes dry. It's 6 years old. Help! Thanks!


Try vacuuming out the exhaust vent hose and as much of the interior air passages as possible. Soak the lint screen in hot water and detergent to remove fabric softener deposits from the screen. Vacuum the burner intake and exhaust vents as well. Hope this helps!

Whirlpool dryer lint screen will not slide back into receptacle.


YOU PROBABLY WILL HAVE TO OPEN THIS DRYER UP BY REMOVING THE BACK COVER. ALSO WHERE YOUR LINT FILTER GOES IN AT THERE WILL BE 2 SCREWS UNDER THAT LID TAKE THEM OUT AND PRY THE TOP UP AT THE EDGES ON THE FRONT BETWEEN THE TOP AND FRONT PANELS. THEN REMOVING THE DOOR SWITCH WIRES AND THE 2 SCREWS THAT HOLD THE FRONT PANEL TO THE CABINET AND LIFTING THE FRONT PANEL UP AND OUT. NOTE THE DRUM WILL FALL A COUPLE OF INCHES. NOW YOU CAN UNDO THE DRUM BELT AND REMEMER HOW IT GOES BACK IN. THEN REMOVE THE DRUM. NOW LOOK TO THE RIGHT OF YOUR LINT CATCHER COMPARTEMENT. YOU WILL SEE 2 5/16 HEX HEAD SCREWS, REMOVE THEM. NOW GO TO THE REAR OF THE DRYER AND REMOVE THE SCREWS THAT HOLD THE LINT CATCHER COMPARTMENT TO THE BLOWER HOUSING. NOW GO BACK TO THE FRONT AND SLIGHTLY PULL THE BULKHEAD WHERE YOU PREVIOUSLY REMOVED THE 2 HEX HEADS(ABOUT AN INCH APART) TOWARD YOU WHILE PUSHING THE CATHER COMPARTMENT AWAY TO DISENGAGE IT, AND NOW YOU CAN SLIDE IT OUT AND CLEAN THE GROOVES THAT THE LINT CATCHER SLIDE INTO. REASSEMBLY IS IN REVERSE. iF THIS SCARES YOU TOO MUCH TO DO TRY RUNNING A WIRE CLOTHES HANGER WITH A SLIGHT HOOK IN IT DOWN EACH SIDE OF THE GROOVE TO POSSIBLY CLEAR AWAY THE OBSTRUCTION. SHOULD YOU CHOOSE TO DISASSEMBLE IT, TAKE THE TIME TO VACUUM OUT ALL THE LINT BUILT UP IN THE CABINET, ON THE MOTOR, THE BLOWER WHEEL, AND ANYWHERE ELSE YOU CAN GET A VACUUM HOSE TO FIT OR GO. GOOD LUCK AND I BELIEVE YOU CAN DO IT IF YOU FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS. P.S DON'T FORGET TO HOOK THE DOOR SWITCH WIRES BACK ON. THAT SEEMS TO BE MY DOWNFALL WHEN WORKING ON DRYERS, AND YES IT MEANS RE-OPEN AND HOOK UP, BUT I'M GETTING BETTER AT IT. :)))

Toothbrush used to clean lint out of the screen area dropped


Does it matter if its there?

If you dropped it in without opening up anything you should be able to get it out (With a hassle)

Heating element


IF you have the dryer pictured above,

You'll have to remove the console (screws behind covers on endcaps.) Then flip the console up and remove three screws holding the top panel down. Slide the top panel toward you and remove. Disconnect light and door switches (top front left.) Remove the toe panel (putty knife on two tabs top left and right.) Open the door and remove the lint screen. Close the door and remove the metal triangular box around the lint screen. Remove the screws at each corner of the front panel. Lift and rotate the front panel slightly clockwise to get the basket off the rollers. Reach under the basket to disconnect the belt from the motor. Lift the belt and the basket out of the machine. You can now reach the heater on the bottom left.

Before you do anything, unplug the machine, remove the lint screen, toe panel, and metal box and check the white plastic thermal fuse on top of the blower housing with an ohm meter. It should read less than one ohm.
