Sound to me like you need to check the vent for proper air flow. Make sure the pipe to the wall aint kinked. Take it apart and clean it up real good. My homemade crappy movie;

Hello, David -

This is a link to another question forum with two solutions in one person's answer:

One involves unplugging your dryer and using a straightened wire clothes hanger.

The other solution (with the dryer unplugged) is to remove the back of the dryer and air duct housing. I do not know the make and model of your dryer, so I cannot provide a diagram of your dryer.

Best wishes.

I had this problem as well. I pulled the lint filter out and vacuumed everything and it still wouldn't go down. I made sure to clean all the 'tracks' around the edge of the filter, in case that was causing the problem. No luck. I stuck my fingers in and even pulled the interior cover off to get at whatever was holding it up and still NOTHING.

But then I found the problem! The handle where you reach in and pull the filter out has to go in behind the interior vent cover. You have to stick your head in the dryer to see that it's catching. One side of my 'handle' wasn't going behind but resting on top. I pulled out the filter and then I gently pushed on the plastic interior filter cover for a few seconds and then tried the filter again. I did it several times before I got the cover pushed enough so the handle was nesting behind the cover properly.

My theory is that when the lint accumulates it lifts the filter up. And when the filter doesn't get nested all the way, the plastic cover softens enough in the heat that it bends slightly in. After a while, it bends in enough to keep the filter sitting slightly above where it ought to be and you can't get it down in there. I am going to keep my filter space cleaned out regularly to make sure the filter always sits down in there properly. But regardless, I figured it out so I can fix it again if I have to.

Undo the main housing to access the connections. Note each screw's placement as some may be smaller than others.
