This is an OEM lint filter for a dryer. This lint filter screen has two side guides on either of the screen. One measures 3/8 of an inch wide, while the other measures 5/8 of an inch wide. This part is white and is made of plastic. You may need to replace the filter if the plastic is broken or warped. Simply slide the lint filter out of the slot and slide the replacement filter in. The lint filter collects lint from drying clothes and prevents lint from building up in internal moving parts, specifically the heating coil. Neglecting to clean your lint filter is a fire hazard, be sure to clean it on a regular basis.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:

Lift the top. Remove (2) screws holding the front of the dryer in place. Lift the front off the 2 retaining clips on the bottom of the dryer. The hardest part of the install was removing and replacing the igniter. A couple of helping hands from the girlfriend to hold the parts in place while I replaced the two screws was very helpfull. Installing the multi rib belt was also very easy with the help of a second pair of arms to reach under the drum to thread the belt onto the tensioner. The lint filter, of coarse was just a matter of throwing the old cracked one away and replacing w/ the new.

Parts Select made it extremely easy to order parts from their site. Parts came in a timely manner and very reasonable priced. Thanks to Parts Select! Door Seal just needed to be removed and replaced by pushing into little slot openings.
Not sure, my husband did the repair but said it wa real easy and if he can do it anyone can, lol
It was easy - I had my 12yr old daughter do it. The old door seal was completely removed, then you placed the new seal in the apropriate knoches that are on the door of the dryer. The lint filter just had to be placed in the vent. - Done.
First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element completely out and disconnected the two wires.From there it was just a matter of installing the new part.Anybody could do it
It was supper easy. I was able to order the correct part from the detailed description you provided. I just opened it and slid it into the slot for a perfect fit. I wish I had done it sooner. My filter had holes in it for some time.
ordered lint filter and it was here the next day.GREATE SERVICE!!!!
No Repair, just replacement. Went perfect.
Received the replacement filter which was an exact duplicate of the 22 year old filter. Took the old one out; slid the new one in and got ready for another 22 years of use. At 86 years of age I probably won't be around to see the new filter wear out. The dryer has already outlasted the place where I purchased it - Montgomery Wards! They just don't make stuff to last like this anymore.
I first made sure there was power to dryer. It was ok so I unpluged the dryer from the socket and afer researching on line I was sure it was the thermal fuse. I check continuity on the fuse and it did not have continuity. So I installed a new fuse and high temp thermostat (they come together)Just lift top of dryer up and back. In the left rear corner is the heating element. On top of the element is the thermostat. On the right side is the fuse it is a round disc with two white wires attached. The thermostat and heating element need to be removed to install fuse (one screw each and lift out of the way ) . Need to check for blocked lint or like I had the white plastic hose had a kink and need replaced with metal lint hose.
Lint filter replacement is routine maintenance. operating without a filter causes problems, a dryer sheet was sucked thru the opening and into the blower wheel, causing a lot of noise, and shaking because of the unbalance. I popped the top of the machine up, removed two screw holding the front in place, removed the front, gaining access to blower.Removed the offending sheet, straighted the bent fin, and put everything back together again. Installeed the new filter, now it runs smooth, and quiet. mission accomplished.
I ordered this part to replace broken lint filter. Shipping estimate was 3-5 working days. I had the part 2 days after I ordered it!! I was very surprised and extremely pleased. If I need anymore appliance parts, I know exactly where to go!
