Preventative Maintenance Tips on Dryers
Purchasing a dryer is one of the costly investments you will make. Therefore you have to do all you can to make it last as long as possible. Don’t let an issue that could easily be solved aggravate and render your appliance useless.
Keep it clean
A drying machine comes with a lot of components. Accumulation of debris in these parts, especially the lint trap can cause the unit to overheat and possibly lead to a fire. So you need to clean this part after every two or three wash cycles. Also, you need to check the hoses and make sure they are clean and free of debris emptying them if necessary.
Check for damaged components
Place your hand on the edges of the dryer especially around the doors when the unit is working. If there is a lot of hot air coming out of the unit, chances are you could be operating a unit with a damaged door or gasket. This problem can prevent the door from closing which allows the hot air to escape and costs you more for electricity.
Don’t overload it
Overloading your dryer in an attempt to get more of your clothes dried quicker is not recommended. Doing so will not only prevent the clothes from drying properly but also strain the unit’s tub bearings, motor, rotating mechanism, and other delicate parts. Finally, the machines life will be shorter than usual. You should split your clothes into a manageable amount instead.
