    My wife was cleaning out the lint screen and accidentally dropped about an 1-2" lint ball down inside the lint trap door and couldn't retrieve it.

    We took the blower tube off the back and couldn't find it.

    Now I'm wondering where did it end up and could it be a hazzard? Should I take the back off the dryer to try looking for it?

    Any thoughts are welcome.

    Take the tube off the back and run the dryer empty in the air fluff mode. The ball should pop out pretty quickly.

    While you're at it, you could also pass a vacuum cleaner hose down the two pipes to clean out any excess lint that may have built up over the years. Your dryer will run better afterwards.
