Cleaning

screen
Every load cleaning
The lint screen
is
located
in
the door opening
of the dryer.

by lint can increase drying time.
To clean:

up. Roll lint off the screen
with your fingers.
Do not rinse or wash screen to
remove lint.
2. Push the lint screen firmly
back into place.
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.
[]
If lint falls off the screen into the dryer during removal,
check the exhaust
hood
and remove the lint. See
"Venting
Requirements."

can cause longer drying
times for your clothes,
or cause the dryer to stop

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.

1. Roll lint off the screen
with your fingers.
