I broke my lint screen it looks exactly like this but I'm really confused the model # on the screen itself says W10049360.
Answer Hello Ivette! According to the model number given the dryer lint filter, part number W10120998, is the correct replacement. On the inside portion of the filter it has part number "w10049360" written on it. The two filters are the same. Thanks.
I put my lint screen in backwards and I cannot get it out.
Answer Hello RJ. The only thing you can do is grasp the filter and pull it back out. If it breaks or tears, you will have to replace it.
Will the lint screen model w10120998 fit my appliance model?
Answer Hello Fred! Yes, the dryer lint filter part number W10120998 will work on your model WED5500XW0. Thanks!
