Question and Answers

Q:

How do I clean the lint trap on my 1991 Whirlpool Thin Twin washer/dryer model LT5100XVW0?

A:

The procedures for cleaning the lint from this washer and dryer are shown in the image below. The washer has a lint trap at the bottom of the agitator. Follow the steps shown to clean the lint trap in the washer.

The dryer has a lint screen in the back wall inside the dryer. Follow these steps shown below to clean the lint screen in the dryer.

I also provided some steps for cleaning the lint out of the inside of the dryer cabinet. A technician is normally needed to clean this area. If you are completely confident that you can safely access and clean this area after unplugging the dryer, then you can clear the lint from the inside of the cabinet using the procedure at the bottom of the image.

Here is a link for the owner’s manual for your laundry center in case you need it: Owner’s Manual ,

If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.

If you do not feel confident in cleaning lint from the inside of the dryer cabinet yourself, then you can have it cleaned by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
