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.

If you use fabric softener on a regular basis, your lint screen may have residue build up that is typically not visible. This residue should be cleaned occasionally for better drying performance. Click the link below for more information.
