Thank you for your question.

I can understand wanting to clean the dryer cabinet to remove the lint inside. It is a great idea for safety reasons.

SAFETY NOTICE: Be sure to disconnect power to the appliance before performing any repairs. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks that might be recommended, please contact your local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others.

  • To clean the cabinet on the dryer you will need to first remove the top by pulling the unit away from the wall a locating the two clips on the back that holds the top to the cabinet.

  • There should be two screws to remove those clips and then you can lift the back of the top about an inch and push forward to unhook from the front panel. Be careful not to drop the top console.

  • There will be two screws that secure the front panel to the side walls. Remove these screws and lift up on the front panel to remove from the retainer clips at the bottom of the base. Be careful not to damage the wires for the door switch.

This should expose enough of the cabinet to clean with a vacuum cleaner. If you want to go deeper you could remove the drive belt and lift out the drum to make it easier to clean the lint from the motor.

I hope these instructions will help.

Thank you for using Manage My Life
