Customer Question

i was cleaning out my lint filter then noticed once it was removed that there was a build up of fluff underneath so decided to use a tiny maglite flashlight to look in side. I droped the maglite down in and am having a terrible time gettint it out. This is a stackable. It has 2 screws right in front of the filter holder. Is it ok to remove those screws? Will they loosen the filter holder to the extent I can reach the flashlight and remove it? Then will I be able to screw the filter holder back into the front?

Unless you use an extendable magnet, the dryer front will need to be removed to retrieve that flashlight. Would you like disassembly instructions?

It will need to be disassembled to retrieve in that case. I can get you the instructions for doing do, if you'd like.
