screen to remove lint. Wet lint is hard to remove.
4. Put the lint screeen and cover back together 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.
Some towels made of synthetic fibers and natural fibers
(polyester and cotton blends) may shed more lint than other
towels, causing your dryer's lint screen to fill up faster. Be
sure to remove lint from the lint screen before and after drying
new towels.
If lint falls off the screen into the dryer during removal, check
the exhaust hood and remove lint. See "Venting
