Cleaning the Dryer Location
Keep dryer area clear and free from items that would obstruct the
flow of combustion and ventilation air.
Cleaning the Lint Screen
Every load cleaning
The lint screen is located in the door opening of the dryer.
A screen blocked by lint can increase drying time.
To clean
1. Pull the lint screen straight up. Roll lint off the screen with your
fingers. Do not rinse or wash screen to remove lint. Wet lint is
hard to remove.
2. Push the lint screen firmly back into place.
IMPORTANT:
Do not run the dryer if the lint screen is 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."
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
1. Roll lint off the screen with your fingers.
2. Wet both sides of lint screen with hot water.

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.
