kayakcrzy will become famous soon enough

Pull the lint filter out, and take the 2 phillip head screws out, and then go to the back, and unplug the dryer, and take the back off. On the left hand side there is the lint filter chute. There are 4 screws, that hold it in place, take them out, and move the lint chute out of the way, and clean it out. Tom

thanks for the advice. i haven't been back there yet, but shouldn't there be a way that if ANY object falls in the chute there should be a way for it to exit? my thinking (from reading these forums) that there is a blower fan that should just "shove" it out to the exhaust pipe in the back, right? anyway, i'm still going to get my tools and get started...

denman is a name known to all

Here is a link, check out #17

Do not run it with the item in the blower. It may move to where it will do no harm but also could jam the blower and either break it or blow your motor!!!

Default Object fell in lint chute

Thank you so much - I was able to retrieve a magic marker from my dryer on my own! The power of the internet and experts at work!

Default object fell in lint chute...

I've had to clear things out of the top-mounted lint chute twice on my Kenmore gas dryer. The easiest, fastest way to remove items both times was this: unplug, turn off gas, remove the gas line, grounding wire, and dryer vent hose. Lay the dryer down on the front. Tip dryer up so it's standing on the top (a plastic bin under the top protects the switch console. Once inverted, whatever was in the chute easily slid out with gravity's help. Reverse the steps above to put the dryer back in working order. The entire process took about 15 minutes, including time to clean the floor under the dryer.

Thank you for the wonderful advice! One additional thing to try first - disconnect the vent hose from the dryer and outside vent to see if the object fell in there. I was all set to open the back of the dryer when my husband made that suggestion...lo and behold, the chapstick had gone all the way to the hose.
