Replacement Secondary Dryer Lint Filter
Alicante clothes dryers have a secondary dryer lint filter. The second filter reduces the chance of lint build-up in the exhaust duct that carries the warm moist air from the clothes dryer to outdoors. Generally, the secondary dryer lint filter is located near the ceiling of the closet containing the clothes
dryer. With time/use the secondary dryer lint filter may break, and need to be replaced. The bulletin available at this link contains replacement part information.
