Cleaning the Dryer Interior
Cleaning the Lint Screen
Every load cleaning
The lint screen is located inside the dryer drum, on the back wall.
Clean it before each load. A screen blocked by lint can increase
drying time.
To clean
1. Open the door and pull the lint screen straight out.
Explosion Hazard
Use nonflammable cleaner.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion,
or fire.
To clean dryer drum
2. Squeeze body of lint screen lightly while pulling off the cover.
3. Roll lint off the screen with your fingers. Do not rinse or wash
screen to remove lint. Wet lint is hard to remove.
4. Replace cover on lint screen body. Push the lint screen firmly
back into place and close the door.
■ 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.
Some towels made of synthetic fibers and natural fibers
(polyester and cotton blends) may shed more lint than other
towels, causing your dryer’s lint screen to fill up faster. Be
sure to remove lint from the lint screen before and after drying
new towels.
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 the screen.
Clean the lint screen with a nylon brush every six months, or
more frequently if it becomes clogged due to a residue buildup.
To wash
1. Wet both the lint screen cover and body with hot water.
2. Wet a nylon brush with hot water and liquid detergent. Scrub
lint screen cover and body with the brush to remove residue
1. Make a paste with powdered laundry detergent and very
warm water.
2. Apply paste to a soft cloth.
Apply a liquid, non-flammable household cleaner to the
stained area and rub with a soft cloth until all excess dye is
3. Wipe drum thoroughly with a damp cloth.
4. Tumble a load of clean cloths or towels to dry drum.
NOTE: Garments which contain unstable dyes, such as denim
blue jeans or brightly colored cotton items, may discolor the
dryer interior. These stains are not harmful to your dryer and will
not stain future loads of clothes. Dry unstable dye items insideout to prevent dye transfer.
Removing Accumulated Lint from
Inside the Dryer Cabinet
Lint should be removed every two years, or more often,
depending on dryer usage. Cleaning should be done by a
qualified person.
3. Rinse with hot water.
4. Thoroughly dry lint screen body and cover with a clean towel.
Replace in dryer.
