I have a Kenmore...

I have a Kenmore dryer and while pulling out the lint piece, the lint fell in.... I’m afraid to turn the dryer on as this might be a fire hazard.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Kenmore is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Model#110.65132410

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

No

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Am I safe to use my dryer or do I need a technician to come out and have a look?

Hello, and welcome to JustAnswer. My name is ***** ***** I will be the one to assist you. Sorry to hear you had this happen. Yes its safe to use your dryer. If you have a vacuum hose that will reach down in there with good suction you can try to get it out.

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

You could also try making a hook out of a wire hanger to get it out. Its not going to cause a fire though. So no need to worry about that. You will be perfectly fine.
