I have a coil the is broken, but during removal I noticed a lot of buildup on the deflector. Is this insulation and if so, can it be removed or do your new deflectors come with new insulation? PN: WE14X86. Model: DDE5300GBL
Answer Marcus, No, there is no insulation on the deflector WE14X86, What appears to you as insulation is actually lint and debris from the drying process in the dryer. It can be wiped clean or vacuumed off the housing. You will also want to check and clean the exhaust vent system in the dryer, and check and clean the exhaust pipe out to the vent hood. this will promote better air flow and reduce the accumulation in the dryer.
