Question about Whirlpool Duet 7.0 Cu. Ft. Super Capacity Plus Gas Dryer
I washed and dryed some stuff that we took to the beach and obviously there was still some sand it it. Every time I turn on my dryer I hear the sand start to move too. It's not in the drum, it's under it. I've tried to vacuum it out but that didn't work. Any suggestions?
Unplug your dryer and remove the lower panel under the door. There a several screws under the bottom edge of the panel that you will need to remove to get the panel off. HINT: if you prop the front feet of the dryer up with a couple of block of wood (like a a piece of 2 x 4) it makes accessing the screws much easier. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then off. Remove the blower fan assembly cover (this is where the lint screen inserts into). NOTE: You will need to take the lint screen out BEFORE you remove the blower fan cover. There are as many as three screws holding it in place. The sand is probably caught in the blower fan ducting and is getting kicked up when the fan turns. Vacuum this area out and it should take care of the problem you are having. NOTE: Since you have the panel off, this is also a good time to clean and inspect your dryer interior and ducting. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
