Dryer Troubleshooting – Not Drying or Taking a Long Time to Dry
The clothes dryer is among the most beloved home appliances for the way it has simplified and shortened the laundry process. Dryer maintenance is extremely important because dryers and lint build-up are a lethal combination. Dryer lint buildup causes thousands of residential fires across the U.S. and Canada every year.
One of the easiest ways to keep your dryer running efficiently is to clean out its lint trap, screen and vent. Over time lint, will build up in these areas and prevent your dryer from moving air efficiently, causing your dryer to work harder to dry clothes and use more energy in the process.
There are devices available to clean out the entire tube from dryer to final termination, basically a brush on a flexible pole. These are most appropriate for long duct runs, usually include 12 feet (3.8 m) of flexible shaft, connect to a cordless drill and come with several brush styles.
Even if you are good about removing lint from the filter after every load, it is common for lint to build up within the dryer, too. Once per year, disassemble the dryer and use a vacuum and a long vacuum hose attachment to clean out the lint.
