    Kenmore Elite Dryer won't dry thoroughly
    I have a Kenmore Elite Dryer, approx 2 years old, its gets hot, tumbles and stops but the clothes are not completely dry (more dry setting). I have change the dryer hose, and I have also cleaned what I could inside of the lint bin (very hard to get into). As a result, I pulled out A lot of lint from there and it has finished drying the towels. Maybe I have solve the problem, but I would like to know if I can get deeper into where the lint goes to get it all out. There is a panel under the door, but I can't figure out how to get it off, I was thinking it would lead me to the outtake of air so I can get the lint out it, seemed to me there should be someway of getting to it with having to turn the thing upside down and twisted all over. Any suggestions or do I need to call someone for maintenace.

    Hi, Patti,
    You can buy a "lint cleaner" at a hardware store, or from somewhere online.
    I have one. It's a fine wire round brush, very flexible bristles, about 6 inches in diameter, with a flexible wire attached, for running through the lint tunnel, going as far as it can. Also cleans out the lint hose.
    Also, have another one, smaller, for cleaning out underneath the refrigerator. Found these in a small catalog. Best of luck.
