How to Remove Lint From Inside a Kenmore Dryer


The lint filter of your Kenmore dryer catches lint particles and other small objects while your laundry is drying. This prevents the lint from plugging up the exhaust duct. It is important to clean the filter after every load to prevent excessive buildup, which can lead to the dryer not drying your clothes properly. It could also cause a fire. Cleaning the filter is straightforward and easily accomplished.

Things You'll Need

  • Vacuum cleaner (handheld or standard with handheld attachment)
  • Open the Kenmore dryer and pull the lint filter out of its housing.

  • Remove all lint trapped in the filter using a handheld vacuum.

  • Check the lint filter housing to clear out any pieces of lint that may have fallen into the duct when removing the lint filter by hand. Use the handheld attachment of a normal vacuum to suck up any lingering lint pieces in the duct and filter housing. Once clean, replace the filter.

Tips & Warnings

  • If there are any holes in the Kenmore's lint filter, it is important to replace it for optimal use.
  • Depending on the model of Kenmore dryer, the lint filter placement may vary.
