Lint Filter

PartSelect Number PS11742807

Manufactured by Whirlpool

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.

Neglecting to clean your lint filter is a fire hazard, be sure to clean it on a regular basis.

Dry was heating intermittently at first and then stopped heating.

I first confirmed that the ingitor was working (because I could see it glow with the lights off at the bottom of dryer). I read within Parts Select that intermittent heating was likely the coils and that I could test their resistance to confirm that this was the problem. I removed the coils (very easy) and thenI checked their resistance with a tester. The resistance on one of them was reading 600 ohms instead of the required 1300 ohms. So I replaced them both and presto it works fine. I also took the opportunity to thoroughly clean out the lint (accessible with the front panel removed) and I replaced the lint filter which was ripped and the gasket around the door which was missing a piece. All very easy to do and parts select made it a cinch. For safety I made sure that the gas and electric were off before I did any of this work. oh, I also levelled the foot which made my wife happy.

Lint screen was cracked.

I threw out the cracked lint screen and put the new one in it's place. I don't know why I waited so long to order the replacement part.

Tear in old filter

There was no reair needed. We just needed to replace the filter. The new filter arrived in a very short time and now we are drying clothes without losing lint through the dryer vent.
Ordering was easy with just the model and filter number which was listed on the dryer door. I was even given a diagram on the computer screen as to where to locate all the parts numbers needed.
This was a very satisfying order experience!
