Tip & How-To about Dryers
Lint build up in a dryer not only poses a fire hazard but also makes the unit work harder to try and dry the clothes that you are trying to get dry. It also makes thermistors, heaters and relays not recognize how hot the unit is actually reaching which when the unit actually is able to read that it is to hot it ends up shorting out one of these parts or one of the connectors that make these parts work. when you dlint your dryer you would want to remove the front of the cabinet and take out the inner drum and use a vacuum to pick out any lint built up around the blower tube, heater, and motor. the most important part to make sure you clean while doing this is by taking off the rear panel the lint screen housing that connects to the blower that shrouds the blower wheel. Remove this housing and make sure you clean from the upper vent to the inside of the blower itself. By doing this not only will you assure a much easyier dryer operation also you clothes will not take so long to dry and by doing this the unit runs more efficiently. It will also not be as easy to break down which means less of a repair cost usually you should perform this on your dryer at least once per year the longest
