Explosion Every load cleaning The lint screen is located in the door opening of the dryer. The control panel has an indicator light to remind you to clean the lint screen before each load. A screen blocked by lint can increase drying time. To clean 1. Pull the lint screen straight up. Roll lint off the screen with your fingers. Do not rinse or wash screen to remove lint. Wet lint is hard to remove. 2. Push the lint screen firmly back into place. Hazard Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as gasoline, away from dryer. Place dryer at least 18 inches (460 ram) above the floor for a garage installation. Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire. 23 IMPORTANT: • Do not run the dryer with the lint screen loose, damaged, blocked, or missing. Doing so can cause overheating and damage to both the dryer and fabrics. • If lint falls off the screen into the dryer during removal, check the exhaust hood and remove the lint. See "Venting Requirements." As needed cleaning Laundry detergent and fabric softener residue can build up on the lint screen. This buildup can cause longer drying times for your clothes, or cause the dryer to stop before your load is completely dry. The screen is probably clogged if lint falls off while the screen is in the dryer. Vacation care Operate your dryer only when you are at home.
