Model WED9050XW Whirlpool dryer. The lint screen was pulled out and got a small tear then it wouldn't slide back down all the way in place. There is something silver in appearance laying front to back in the opening several inches down. Could this be the moisture sensor bar? Our son has special needs so his caregivers have been operating the dryer and I'm relaying information provided to me.
The clip is the metal piece that you see. When you look in there the part should face at an angle and down. This helps to make sure that the lint filter stays in place when dryer is running.
