Caring For Your Dryer
Lint can gather inside the dryer and be
a fuel for fire. It is recommended the
lint be removed every 2 to 3 years, or
more often, depending on dryer
usage. Cleaning should be done by a
qualified person. If you have any
questions, please call our Consumer
Assistance Center at 1-800-253-1301.
