Lint filter replacement
« on: August 31, 2020, 03:09:44 PM »

 I am in the process of cleaning and repairing an older model Speed Queen electric dryer with model number AEM497W2. The lint screen for this unit is shredded. In checking for a replacement it appears that it is not available from the OEM. It possibly is available from a source on E Bay butt even that is questionable. Has anyone got a source for this item ? I believe the OEM part number is WP502140 P.  Can anyone assist on this item ?

My local dealer fpund a new one that fits with a little rework . .It has a slight curve to it as compared to the original but it fits fairly well. Cost was decent compared to the other sources --approx $20
