Cleaning the Lint Cartridge and Filter (located at the bottom front of the dryer):

  1. Open the bottom filter flap. Lift the handle up and pull out the filter. Set filter on the dryer, and pull out the lint screen and foam pad located at the back of the filter. Remove lint off the screen and foam pad with your fingers.

NOTE: If lint still remains on the screen and foam pad, then wet both sides with hot water. If necessary, wet a nylon brush with hot water and liquid detergent. Scrub the lint screen with the brush to remove residue buildup. Rinse the screen and foam pad with hot water.

  1. Put the lint screen and foam pad back into the filter and put the filter back in the dryer cabinet. The dryer will not operate without the filter, and make sure the handle is downward to lock in place. LF will display if not properly seated.

IMPORTANT: Do not run the dryer with the filter loose, damaged, blocked, or missing. Doing so can cause overheating and damage to both the dryer and fabrics.
