For Whirlpool Dryer Air Duct Assembly (Part Number: AP4047613)

A lot of lint is getting by the lint screen and getting caught in the louvered vent for the dryer exhaust. The lint screen is intact but I am thinking the lint is bypassing the screen through the plastic surrounding the lint screen. A piece of plastic on the outside portion of the duct has broken off over time.Does this part include the plastic gird on the inside of the dryer where the exhaust exits the dryer before passing through the lint screen? Will replacing this part keep the lint from geeting caught in the louvered exhaust vent?

Scott for Model Number LGS34AW

ANSWER Scott, Yes, this part 37001141 does have the grid on the inside of the dryer. As the part being broken will allow lint to bypass the screen, there will still be lint that will get past the screen and get on the blower wheel. It is important to clean the lint from the unit bi annually to annually to ensure that it does not build up too much.
