Do-It-Yourself Maintenance Tips

Dryers

  • Always clean the lint filter before every load. This not only speeds up the drying process, but keeps lint from collecting in the dryer.
  • Clean out the house vent. Most slow drying complaints are a clogged house vent not a broken dryer.  Have it cleaned once a year especially if it vents up.

Before you call for a repair

Electric dryers use two circuit breakers for heating, but only one to run the motor. Check the circuit breakers before you call for a repair.
