Tips for Cleaning Appliances
Read the manual
Every appliance has a specific way to be cleaned, this is why it’s imperative to read the instructions first to avoid harming it.
Unplug the appliance first
This should go without saying: Always unplug your appliances before you clean them.
Be wary of water
Not all appliances or parts can go under water. Make sure it’s safe before getting your appliance too wet.
Cleaning water spots
To clean water spots, place boiled distilled white vinegar on a towel and apply it for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with baking soda and scrub.
Clean under appliances
Your appliance usually sits in one spot and doesn't move for years. Who knows what’s under it. Keep the space clean to avoid a mess later.

It was quite a process, but I took detailed pictures (which I turned into a vidoe) and can show you exactly what to do should you need to remove your lint trap housing!This is my lint trap when it is in the proper position.
