Yes, I know all that, I've done it before. However, today the lint trap WILL NOT re-insert into the machine. I can insert it, almost all the way in - but NOT all the way & it will not properly turn & lock in place.
But no clogs to remove. It is as if the removable part of the trap somehow 'grew' about 1/2" or so & is just too long to go back into the compartment in the machine. Should part of the compartment turn with the insert?
I'd really rather not take the machine apart. Is it necessary? Could I have somehow damaged the gasket near the 'handle' on the lint trap? The gasket seems to be blocking the filter. The gasket does seem to be properly placed in the groove on the lint trap.
Should I just give up & call Mr FixIt to come in and repair it?
