CLEANING THE LINT SCREEN

The lint screen is located in the door opening of the dryer.
A screen blocked by lint can increase drying time.

and open lint screen. Roll lint off the screen with your
fingers.

Do not run the dryer with the lint screen loose,
n
damaged, blocked, or missing. Doing so can cause
overheating and damage to both the dryer and fabrics.
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.
Clean the lint screen with a nylon brush every 6 months,
or more frequently, if it becomes clogged due to a residue
buildup.
To wash lint screen:
1. Roll lint off the screen with
your fingers.
