CLEANING THE LINT SCREEN

Clean lint screen after every load
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 and out. Press tab down
and open lint screen. Roll lint off the screen with your
fingers.
2. Push the lint screen firmly back into place.
IMPORTANT:
Do not run the dryer with the lint screen loose,
n
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 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 lint screen
1. Roll lint off the screen with
your fingers.
2. Wet both sides of lint screen
with hot water.
3. Wet a nylon brush with hot water
and liquid detergent. Scrub lint
screen with the brush to remove
residue buildup.
4. Rinse screen with hot water.
5. Thoroughly dry lint screen with
a clean towel. Reinstall screen
in dryer or lint filter.
