Our lint filter is inside. The hardest was getting the lid off. You have to unscrew the control console from the back then unscrew the remaining piece on the front then slide the top forward to open. Unsscrew the 2 screws inside the door to remove the door latch assembly. Its tough to pull the assembly off, we pried w pliers then quickly attached the new one, put in place, replace the 2 screws, slide the top back on and reattach the control console. Took about 45 min total. Be sure to unplug first!
