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.
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.
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 6 months, or more
frequently if it becomes clogged due to a residue buildup.
To wash
1. Roll lint off the screen with your fingers.
2. Wet both the lint screen cover and body with hot water.
3. Wet a nylon brush with hot water and liquid detergent. Scrub
lint screen cover and body with the brush to remove residue
buildup.
4. Rinse with hot water.
5. Thoroughly dry lint screen body and cover with a clean towel.
Replace in dryer.

Cleaning the Dryer Interior

To clean dryer drum
1. Make a paste with powdered laundry detergent and very
warm water.
2. Apply paste to a soft cloth.
OR
Apply a liquid, nonflammable household cleaner to the
stained area and rub with a soft cloth until all excess dye is
removed.
3. Wipe drum thoroughly with a damp cloth.
4. Tumble a load of clean cloths or towels to dry drum.
NOTE: Garments that 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 inside-out to
avoid transfer of dye.
