    Default Item dropped in Lint Vent

    Hello:
    I have a Kenmore series 80 Gas Dryer. I had the lint screen out, when a screw or something rolled down the lint vent. I've tried everything to get it out and am too scared to try to take the dryer apart. Can I run the dryer with something down there? Please help!

    Is your lint vent on the top of your dryer, or inside the door?

    Whats the model# of your dryer? Its located inside the door.

    If your lint vent is on top of your dryer, here's a help link to remove it:

    Unfortunately, there wouldn't be any other easier way than to take it apart.

    Maybe one of your family members or friends can help you thats mechanically inclined.

    Default Model Number

    Hi Jake:
    Thanks for responding. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like I can unscrew the back part of the dryer as indicated in the instructions you sent me. I must have a different model. The number under MOD inside the dryer door reads: 110.74852400

    Does this help?? Thanks!

    Also, until I get it out, can I run the dryer? Please let me know. Thanks!

    Yes, on your model, you can take the back off, #5 here is the back panel:

    The screws#6 come out.

    Yes, you can still use your dryer if its not making any strange noises.
