Caring For Your Dryer
and Fabric Damage Hazard
Do not run the dryer with the lint screen loose,
or missing.
Doing so can
cause overheating
and damage to both the
dryer and fabrics.
Cleaning the lint screen
The lint screen is located under a lid
on top of the dryer. Clean it before
each load. A screen blocked by lint
can increase drying time.
1. Open the lid and pull the lint screen
straight out.
2. Roll lint off the screen with your
fingers, Do not rinse or wash the
screen to remove lint. Wet lint is
hard to remove.
3. Push the lint screen firmly back into
place and close the lid.
Lint screen maintenance
Laundry detergents and fabric
softeners can cause a residue build-up
on the lint screen. A clogged lint
screen can extend drying times. Clean
the lint screen every six months or
more frequently if it becomes clogged
due to a residue build-up. Use the
following method:
1. Wet both sides of lint screen with
hot water.
2. Wet a nylon brush with hot water
and liquid detergent.
3. Scrub lint screen with the brush
until all residue build-up is re-
4. Rinse with hot water.
5. Thoroughly
dry lint screen with a
clean towel and replace in dryer.
