Lint Screen is Clear

Possible Solutions

Is the Lint Screen Clean? 

The lint screen will be located in the door opening of the dryer. A screen blocked by lint can increase drying time. It is important to clean your lint screen after every use.

The lint screen should also be cleaned of detergent/fabric softener residue occasionally. Click the link below for more information.
