The lint trap will not go in all the way. This happened following a household move. I suspect something is in the channels of the lint chute or chute is crimped.
My question is how do I take out the chute to inspect/replace it?
Answer Hello Carl,
Remove the lint screen completely and remove the two screws where the lint screw is supposed to install. Go to the rear of the unit and unplug it. Remove the exhaust duct and the screws around the rear panel. Remove the front panel and looking to the left you will see a metal piece of ducting that is held in place at the bottom by 4 or 5 screws. Remove these screws and the ducting will be loose in the assembly. You will have to manipulate it to get it out, but it will come out rather easily.
Inspect what you need to and the only other precaution I can give, when you get back to the part of the reassembly, Be extremely careful not to drop those two screws. If you drop them down it the duct, you will have to re-disassemble what you just reassembled to retrieve the screw. Wear gloves and good luck.
