Door filter (lint screen) is blocked by lint 

  • Remove and clean the door filter; afterwards, make sure to insert it properly in the filter compartment. 

Every Load Cleaning:

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. 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.
