Dryers require regular maintenance.
Follow the suggestions
below to maintain your dryer properly.
Maintenance-every
load
Cleaning
the lint screen
The lint screen is located under a lid on top of
the dryer.
Clean it before each load.
A screen
blocked by lint can increase
drying time.
1. Open the Ird and pull the lint screen straight
out.
2. Roll lint off the screen with your fingers. Do
not rinse or wash the screen to remove lint.
Wet lint is hard to remove.
3. Push the lint screen firmly back into place
and close the lid.
Product and Fabric Damage Hazard
Do not run the dryer with the lint screen
loose, damaged,
blocked or missing.
Doing so can cause overheating
and
damage
to both the dryer and fabrics.
Maintenance-as
needed
Use the following
suggestions
about cleaning
and lint removal to help you keep your dryer
safe, looking like new, and at peak operating
efficiency.
Cleaning
a clogged
lint screen
Laundry detergents
and fabric softeners
can
cause a residue build-up on the lint screen. A
clogged
lint screen can extend drying times.
Clean the lint screen every six months or more
frequently
if it becomes
clogged
due to a
residue build-up.
Use the following
method:
1. Wet both sides of lint screen with hot water.
2. Wet a nylon brush with hot water and liquid
detergent.
3. Scrub lint screen with the brush until all
residue build-up is removed.
4. Rinse with hot water.
5. Thoroughly
dry lint screen with a clean
towel and replace in dryer.
