HOW CAN I EXTEND THE LIFE OF MY DRYER?

It’s possible to give your dryer, and your clothes, a longer life by treating your appliance with care on laundry day. Here’s how:

  • One simple chore can speed up drying time, cut your dryer’s energy use, lower the risk of a fire and prolong the life of your machine: Clean the lint filter after every use. Simply remove the lint. Tip: If soap and fabric softener have built up on the screen, wash it with soap and water. Occasionally vacuum the chute that houses the filter.
  • Use rigid, not flexible, duct work for efficiency and to comply with building codes. Unfasten the duct from the dryer once a year and vacuum it.
  • Lubricate the flap on the exhaust vent on the outside of your house once a year. Use a vacuum or lint brush to clear the vent of lint so air can easily pass through it. A clogged vent can cause a fire.
  • Cut down on drying time if your clothes constantly come out wrinkled. That means you’re over-drying.
  • Add dryer sheets before turning on the dryer. Tossing them in after clothes are warm can stain the clothes.
