How do I pry the lint screen loose?

I have a maytag maxima front load dryer. I've been removing and returning the lint screen with ease. When I inadvertently put it in backwards, it obviously just stops going in and that's my cue to flip it around. Never been a problem (I've had the machine for 1 year and a bit now). Yesterday however, I put it in backwards, it stopped on the way down, again, my cue to flip it around, but this time it won't come out. I didn't try to force it in or anything, so I have no idea what happened. Can anyone help?

In good ole days you had choices of how long a wash cycle would last. Seems these days they run for up to 90 minutes. Which is just too long.

Answer: 
Rhonda,
The wash cycles are that long on this washer. Some are as short as 30-35 mins and others can be as long as 2hrs if using all options for the cycle. As you select each cycle and any option you add, the estimated wash time will display. Thank you for viewing this Maytag home appliance.

Leaving the door cracked open after a wash to allow any residual water to dry before closing the door is a great best practice also. You can also review the Use and Care Guide to learn more.

Is there a trap in the washer that is accessible to the owner to get items that may have fallen out of pockets etc.?

Other models have a "sump trap" located on the front that will catch items before they clog the drain. My brothers Whirlpool model requires a technician service call to clean out and they have items as large as socks cause a block in the line.

Steph,
It is not often that large items would get stuck in a Whirlpool Corporation front load washer. There is a "catch" valve that can be accessed if needed on this washer, it is located internally like the Whirlpool branded washer.

These washers and this Maytag washer has a self flushing valve and a system in place that is much more reliable and doesn't allow for items to pass through very often. Other brands require routine cleaning, hence the external trap. Thank you for viewing this Maytag front load washer.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 37 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great item you will save a lot a money in soap + electric I'm so happy [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] July 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Consumer Reports rated #1-years of use later I still agree Consumer Reports rated #1-years of use later I still agree. I bought this washer after our LG stopped working after only 4years. We love all the features offered. Originally I was a little worried with the automatic soap dispenser, but now I'm hooked. It truly calibrates the proper amount & I don't have to stop to add soap after each load. This is just a small example of one way this machine saves me time. The bedding setting keeps sheets from winding together. Now even my large blankets get fully clean at home instead of needing industrial size washers. December 16, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great washer but not quiet I have had this washer now for a month, it replaced a top loading Maytag. It washes the clothes well and does get out stains with the steam feature. I also like that I don't have to add detergent every time as the machine portions it out for each wash. The machine is much louder than I expected. The signal beeps are very loud (which you can turn off completely). The machine itself is louder than my top loader was. My only other complaint is that the door is hinged on the left side and can't be changed (which is inconvenient because my dryer is on the left side of the washer so the door is in the way to take clothes out and put into the dryer). I would still recommend this machine for its efficiency and performance. January 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cleans clothes great Maytag has proved reliable and this Maxima front loader DEFINITELY cleans my clothes much better than my old AND on "Normal" setting which takes under 1 hour to wash. Clothes are clean - soap is rinsed out better and the spin cycle takes most of water out so they dry very quickly. It also has sanitize sitting which takes longer but when needed it is great. I had Maytag Bravo top load without agitator and water saver before - it did not clean clothes well and they came out twisted up in knots. BUT the mechanics were working great when I sold. April 30, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hope for water savings Folks that installed the washer were excellent. Fast ,friendly and knew what they were doing. We have only used the washer a few times and all is well so far.......time will tell if the washer does what the Maytag folks say it will. June 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent & Efficient Our maytag washer has saved us on our water bill. My clothes come out cleaner than they did in my old machine. And I absolutely love the all in one feature on it where I can put my clothes that I need for work they next day at night and it will wash and dry my clothes and be ready for me the next morning. I also love the stay fresh feature when I can run out and do errands and come home and my wash load is still fresh even though the cycle has been done for a while. I am very happy with this washer!! October 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It does it all! I bought this washer last month and couldn't be happier with its performance. The clothes come out far cleaner, old spots have been removed, and with the great spin action I use less dryer time on each load. It is a quiet machine and is heavy enough that there is no motion even when spinning. Laundry is a big issue and our home and this Maytag has proven itself to be a great boon. February 9, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product This is the best washer I have ever owned. It cleans my clothes very well and uses little water. It is very quite and doesn't shake the whole house when spinning. I also like the way Home Depot Handled everything. I don't have anything bad to say about the entire deal. I would recommend Homedepot. Very Happy March 25, 2014
