How do I remove the old duct assembly, outlet? I've removed the bulk head and want to get to the blower fan but cannot figure out how to get the old duct assembly removed.
Answer Hello Jen. If you remove the screws holding the front tumbler assembly on the dryer, the duct assembly will come off with the front tumbler assembly. This will give you access to the blower wheel. Hope this helps.

All the lint is bypassing the screen and plugs the vent leading to the outside. If I put a nylon on the exhaust vent the nylon fills up with lint. The dryer will work like this for a few days. The lint screen has no holes in it and everything seems to fit tight. What is the problem?
Answer Larry, The lint filter does not collect 100% of the lint from the clothes, they never have, there is always a minimal amount of lint expelled through the exhaust vent system and to the outside environment. Very new and very old natural fibers(cotton) seems to produce more lint than expected. Your exhaust vent system should be checked,cleaned and repaired once a year. Good Luck
I've run a cycle without the unit connected to the exhaust vent. It didn't seem to help. The vent tubing is clear from obstructions as far as I can tell. What to do next?
Answer Hello Jen. You will need to check the temperature of the dryer while it is running. Use a multi-meter with temperature TJMA-DMT3 and test at the back of the dryer where it vents out. Set the unit on high heat. It should cycle between 100° on the low side and 165° on the high side. If the unit is not cycling properly, you may have a bad cycling thermostat. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. Hope this helps. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
