how to clean a front-mounted lint screen/filter?(Kenmore)
By Tori 02/27/2005
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, Linda, for your incredibly helpful tip! I never would have believed this, since my dryer filter "looked" clean, but I tried the "water test" after reading your snopes.com link, and I am now a believer!

The instructions that came with my dryer said to NEVER wet the lint screen filter or wash it with water. I realize that different brands may use different materials for their lint screens.... so washing may be okay for some brands. I'd double check before I did that just to be safe.
