This might be a dumb question, but I cannot figure out how to vacuum my new dryer.
The old dryer had a panel I could take off on the front. The new one seems to be all screwed in at the back. How do you vacuum these things?? I haven’t done it in awhile and I’m starting to freak out a bit every time I turn it on…
