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

Clean lint screen before each load. A screen blocked by lint can increase drying time.


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.

Every Load Cleaning

1. The lint screen is located on top of the dryer. Pull the lint screen toward you. 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.

As Needed Cleaning

1. Roll lint off the screen with your fingers.
2. Wet both sides of lint screen with hot water.
