Dryer maintenance tips for 2023 and beyond

A dryer is an important appliance in many households, and proper maintenance is crucial to keeping it running in the best shape. Here are some tips for maintaining your dryer:

  1. Clean the lint filter: The lint filter is an important component of the dryer, and it should be cleaned after every use to prevent lint buildup. Lint buildup can restrict the flow of air and increase the risk of a fire.
  2. Clean the dryer vent: The dryer vent should be cleaned at least once a year to prevent lint buildup and improve the efficiency of the dryer. A clogged dryer vent can increase drying times and potentially lead to a fire.
  3. Check the hose and ducts: The hose and ducts that connect the dryer to the vent should be inspected regularly to ensure that they are not damaged or obstructed. A damaged hose or duct can restrict the flow of air and increase drying times.
  4. Check the drum seals: The drum seals help keep the hot air inside the dryer and prevent clothes from getting caught in the seal. Check the seals regularly and replace them if they are damaged.
  5. Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations: The manufacturer of your dryer will provide recommendations for maintenance and care in the owner’s manual. Follow these recommendations to ensure that your dryer is running at its best.

By following these tips for dryer maintenance, you can help keep your dryer running efficiently and extend its lifespan.
