Do You Love Your Clothes Dryer [part 1]

Do you love your dryer? Is it big enough with every feature you need that you want to keep it forever?

Follow these 5 tips to keep your dryer working longer and more efficiently….

TIP 1

Dry loads that don’t overload the machine 
The machine should be 1/2 to 2/3 full for maximum efficiency. Too many wet, heavy clothes can overwork the motor that turns the drum.

TIP 2

Use the sensor settings instead of time dry 
Let the electronics in the dryer work for you. Using the sensor setting reduces drying time and improves dryer efficiency.

TIP 3

Dry similar fabrics together 
Heavy towels separated from lightweight garments will dry at similar rates so you don’t have to pull a few pieces out in between or run another cycle for the still-damp items. This also improves the dryer’s efficiency.

TIP 4

Loosen up compacted items before putting them in the dryer 
Separate clumped-up items like bed linens and tangled jeans to allow air to circulate better – reducing dry time and improving the dryer’s efficiency.

TIP 5

Regularly (EVERY LOAD) remove lint from the lint filter and lint trap!
This is the single most important tip to prolong your dryer’s life!! Preventing lint from getting inside the dryer and throughout the venting not only improves airflow, it improves efficiency. It can also reduce risk of a dryer fire and add to the longevity of many internal components.
