Tip & How-To about Washing Machines
While removing that little screen occasionally to get the lint off, I have found that I get my clothes drier by doing it after each bunch of clothes dried. ALSO, while cleaning out the lint filter is a good practice, one that is just important, if not moreso, is to clean out the area where the lint filter rests. You can usually remove the plastic piece that you insert the filter simply by removing a couple of screws and gently lifting that frame out. Next step is to get out the vacuum cleaner, either upright or cannister will do well so long as the upright has a hose attachment. Put the crevice tool on the end of the hose and use it to remove more lint from from the "cavern" (my word for the comparative amount of room there) under the frame you have removed.
Not only will this help your dryer to work more efficiently, but it can also keep the chance of fires to a minimum. (Fires are more likely with a gas dryer.)
