Located at the front of the dryer, this lint filter traps lint and debris from the exhaust air flowing out of the dryer drum. This part measures approximately 12 inches long x 7 inches high, has a plastic frame, and a mesh body to catch debris. If your filter needs cleaning, the dryer cycle will take longer due to a buildup of lint or fabric softener affecting the air flow through the filter. If there is a buildup, try scrubbing the filter with hot water and soap. If the filter is damaged or torn, it should be replaced. Cleaning the lint filter before starting the drying cycle is a great way to ensure your dryer performs properly.
This part works with the following brands: Frigidaire, Gibson, Kelvinator, Kenmore, Tappan & White-Westinghouse.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
replaced old filter, only to find that the new one had the same issue. After closer examination, I determined the filter guide that screws into place, which I had removed earlier to clean lint out, did not hold the lint casing correctly. I removed and reinstalled the piece that has the metal moisture sensors, and replaced it, ensure both screws held the lint casing as it should. Now I have two lint filters that fit perfectly! So, if you ever remove the piece wtih the metal sensors, make sure that the lint casing is screwed in correctly when replacing.

I remove the old lint filter and just put the new one in.
First I pryed up the top cover then opened the access cover on the rear to remove the belt from the drum. Next I removed the front of the dryer to have access to remove the drum. I then removed the 3 screws that hold the drum to the rear drum bearing assembly and pulled the drum through the front of the dryer. I then removed the bearing and proceded to remove the ground ball and reassembled in reverse steps.
Vacuumed lint and inserted new filter.
