Servicing a dryer will seem like a difficult task, but it is not.
In this opportunity, we will focus on the cleaning of the ventilation system, that is, the ducts.
The cleaning of the ducts of the dryer, it is important that it is done at least once a month; in this way, we will avoid malfunctioning or total failure of the appliance. And in the case of filters, should be done after each use, in addition, check that it is completely clean before re-use.
Having clean filters will help reduce the drying time, decrease the energy consumption and the lifetime of the appliance will be much longer.
Steps to clean the filters of a dryer
1. When you open the door of the dryer, you must locate the filter, this is in the bottom, you must pull it to get it out.
2. Shake it to remove the lint; If necessary, use a vacuum cleaner to remove the remains of fibers or lint.
3. Finally, put it back, remember to fix it very well to avoid rubbing with the door.
What else should I know?
1. Do you have a humidity sensor? You should also clean it
The humidity sensor must always be clean; since this indicates the level of humidity that clothes have when it is dry. If this sensor is not cleaned frequently, it can cause mal-functions.
With a damp cloth, preferably microfiber, it cleans the dirt residues from the humidity sensor; This is usually located on the edge of the interior of the dryer.
Remember to dry it well after cleaning it.
2. The air inlet and outlet should be cleaned several times a year
This part of the maintenance of a dryer is very easy; you only need a vacuum cleaner to clean the air inlet and outlet ducts.
The slits are on both the front and back; This cleaning should be done at least four times a year to prevent the accumulation of dust, which prevents the air circulate properly.
3. Finally, clean the condenser
If the washing machine works by a condensation system, then you should clean it at least 3 times a year.
The condenser helps the drying is efficient, so it is necessary to be clean and in optimal conditions.
