Question about Maytag LSE7806A Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer
We have recently discovered that lint is building up in the dryer. We can see it in the rear of the dryer through holes in a round metal piece on the back wall. but we can't see any way to clean it out. I went to the Maytag site and looked at both the installation and care manuals but found nothing that suggested to me how we might clean out this filter. There aren't any screws to loosen or any other obvious way to get at it. We are concerned about a possible fire hazard. this washer dryer is installed in a closet in our bedroom and exhausted out the top. (We assume it is vented to the outside, but all we know is that it goes into the attic.) It is difficult to impossible to get behind this washer dryer without calling a service person. but we hate to call someone to simply clean out a filter. any suggestions?
I have a similar problem with mine. the problem was the vent from the blower motor came partially off and over time the inside of the unit became absolutely caked with lint. the solution: 1. take off the front panel of the unit(where the controls are). don't worry, its not difficult, but unplug the machine or throw the breaker first so you don't get zapped. 2. vaccuum out the lint 3. put it back together. it's a good idea to take pics before you start taking things apart so if you run into trouble you have a visual record.

Are you able to physically pull a section out in front of the filter? Or the filter itself? It may be held in by snap in style clamps?
