Clean Before You Dry
Of course, the clothes will be clean before you put them in the dryer. They are coming directly from the washing machine.
Local appliance repair technicians will tell you that may not be as clean as it needs to be, though, is the dryer itself.
There are parts on your dryer that, if not cleaned, could affect how well your appliance works. It could also create a fire hazard.
One area you must clean is the lint trap. This is easily accessible, and you can visibly see how dirty the trap is each time you open the dryer. After a few cycles, it is helpful to remove the screen and clean both sides of it, freeing it of contaminants that can hinder the machine’s performance.
Cleaning the vents that lead to the outdoors is another vital factor in helping your dryer run efficiently. Lint and other debris can clog the vent, preventing the air from escaping. Lint can also build up on the back of the dryer. At least once a year, you should pull the dryer out and inspect it and clean it when necessary.
This is an even better time to have your local appliance professionals perform a maintenance test on your dryer. Phoenix-based appliance experts know what to look for in the wiring, venting, and other mechanics of a dryer.
