Thanks for the question,
the front can be removed to get at the insides , send me the model number I will send you a breakdown to help you with that problem.
The model # XXXXX XXXXX
Theres two spring clips about 2 in from each corner, use a flat screwdriver and push in at the clips , now lift the top , remove the screws that hold the front on , now you should be able to clean out the lint.
Great that its fixed.
Thanks and God Bless.
