Cleaning the Dryer Location

Keep dryer area clear and free from items that would obstruct the
flow of combustion and ventilation air.
Explosion Hazard
Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as
gasoline, away from dryer.
Place dryer at least 18 inches (46 cm) above the floor
for a garage installation.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.

Cleaning the Lint Screen

Every load cleaning
The lint screen is located in the door opening of the dryer. The
control panel has an indicator light to remind you to clean the lint
screen before each load. A screen blocked by lint can increase
drying time.
NOTE: Check the lint screen and remove any lint accumulated
from items dried on the rack.
Suggested Items for Rack
Washable wool items (block
to shape and lay flat on rack)
Stuffed toys (cotton or
polyester fiber filling)

*Reset time as needed to complete drying.
NOTE: You must remove rack for normal tumbling. To remove the
dryer rack, lift it straight up and out of the dryer.


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.
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.
If lint falls off the screen into the dryer during removal, check
the exhaust hood and remove the lint. See "Venting
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 while the screen
is in the dryer.
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.
