Dryer Maintenance Tips



This free troubleshooting video shows quick maintenance tips including cleaning the lint filter, lint screen housing, venting and inside the cabinet for keeping your dryer working safely and efficiently.

Vent

Interior of dryer cabinet

The lint produced by clothes tumbling in a dryer is normally trapped by the lint filter. However, some lint invariably escapes and accumulates on the inside of the dryer cabinet. At least once a year, check the inside of the cabinet, and clean it if necessary. Do this more frequently if the dryer is used heavily.

Lint filter

Area under lint filter

You can also clean the chute, duct, or area that the lint filter fits into. If necessary, use a vacuum cleaner to reach into the duct and clean out any lint. Note... If the lint build-up is severe, it's important to disassemble the dryer and clean out the lint more thoroughly.
