Unhappy something in lint trap
Model Number: 471 49012890   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: 1 - 5 years

I just got this, it worked fine but I noticed there is no lint trap, so I began fishing lint out of the hole, I pulled out quite a bit of lint, wrappers and a sock, I ordered a new lint trap, but I think there may be more inside, how do I check, how can I take the dryer back off to see also if there is a build up of lint inside, there was some around the drum when I looked through the small door on the back. I dont want to ruin this dryer.

Default this is a frigidaire product

You work from the front to fix this puppy.
pop the top and remove the front.
Get the tub out.
the element is located on the rear of the dryer.
The element can be restrung for a lot cheaper price than buying the whole pan with element attached.gibsonfrig elec coil.jpg

Default Spring clips hold the top down

Go along the outer edge between the front and the top and use a putty knife. Press against the clips located 2 inchs from either side of the dryer. while lifting upwards on the top. It should just release.top removal.jpg
