Many washing machines, especially Kenmore, Whirlpool,and General Electric brands do not have a lint filter. Instead, they "backflush" the wash and rinse water so that all the lint comes out the drain hose. An easy way to check for this is to attach a rolled-up nylon stocking to the end of the drain hose with some large rubber bands. After a few washes, the stocking will be full of lint.

How to respond to "Clean Lint filter" light.


had similar trouble and it can start a FIRE. Try cleaning the vent outside. The shutter doors can be hindered by lint and critters. If cleaning the vent door is not enough, take vent pipes apart and clean them. This should be smooth aluminum pipe not, the corrugated plastic etc.. If this does not cure it, the blower may be clogged or dead inside your machine.

Be sure the lint filter is clean, and the temp sensor blown clean. Sometimes when cleaning the lint filter the some small amount of lint drops by the filter or screen and land on a hot spot. Lint can catch fire so clean with a air hose or vacuum cleaner - Good luck and be safe

It's an auto-clean internal lint filter. Lint is trapped from water circulating through the filter during the wash cycle. During the drain cycle it's backwashed and the lint goes down the drain.

Whirlpool dryer wed5700sw


you need a dryer vent brush first,bought at home depot cheap,and clean the entire vent to the house,then clean where the vent hooks up to the machine,if your filter is where your door is pull out the filter and stick the brush in there and pull out lint,also use your vacume,remember you let some lint out when you let the hose blow out but theres a lot more there to clean,and also unplug your machine as you do this,if this helps please give me a fix ya vote
