Cleaning the dryer location
Keep dryer area clear and free from items that would block
the air flow for proper dryer operation. This includes clearing
piles of laundry in front of the dryer.
Cleaning the dryer interior
To clean dryer drum
1. Apply a liquid, nonflammable household cleaner to the
stained area of the drum and rub with a soft cloth until
stain is removed.
2. Wipe drum thoroughly with a damp cloth.
3. Tumble a load of clean cloths or towels to dry the drum
Use a microfiber cloth and hot water in a spray bottle to
clean the drum and a second microfiber towel to dry.
NOTE: Items that contain loose 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 these items inside out
to avoid drum staining.
Removing accumulated lint
From Inside the Dryer Cabinet
Lint should be removed every 2 years, or more often,
depending on dryer usage. Cleaning should be done
by a qualified servicer.
From the Exhaust Vent
Lint should be removed every 2 years, or more often,
depending on dryer usage.
Cleaning the lint screen
Every load cleaning
The lint screen is located in the door opening of the dryer.
The control panel has an indicator light "Check Lint Screen"
to remind you to clean the lint screen after each load. A
screen blocked by lint can increase drying time.
To clean:
1. Pull the lint screen straight up and out. Press tab down on
front to open lint screen. Roll lint off the screen with your
fingers. Do not rinse or wash screen to remove lint. Wet
lint is hard to remove.
2. Close the lint screen and push firmly back into place.
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" in the Installation Instructions.
Clean space where lint screen
is located, as needed. Using a
vacuum, gently remove any lint
that has accumulated outside
of the lint screen.
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.
Clean the lint screen with a nylon brush every 6 months,
or more frequently, if it becomes clogged due to a residue
To wash:
1. Roll lint off the screen with your fingers.
2. Wet both sides of lint screen with hot water.
3. Wet a nylon brush with hot
water and liquid detergent. Scrub
lint screen with the brush to remove
residue buildup.
4. Rinse screen with hot water.
5. Thoroughly dry lint screen
with a clean towel.
Reinstall screen in dryer.
