Honest Advice With Love From Your Dryer

Let’s be honest, you don’t really want to think about your dryer, you just want it to work, right?

Here is some penny-wise advice given with love from your dryer…

Do you overload it? See below: The machine should be 1/2 to 2/3 full. Too many clothes can overwork the motor that turns the drum.

Are the clothes you’re putting in too wet or heavy?

  1. Too wet coming out of the washer could be a sign that your washer is not spinning properly. Before you blame your dryer, let Appliance Master check your washer.
  2. Exactly how many towels or pairs of jeans are you trying to cram in the machine? Personally, three to four is the max unless you have an oversize unit.

What does the lint filter look like?

  1. Is it loose? That means lint is getting into the unit and near the hot spots that can cause a fire.
  2. Is it rusty? That means the clothes are being put in much too wet for efficient drying.
  3. Is it clogged? If you’re not cleaning the lint filter EVERY LOAD, not only is the lint building up, but fabric softener residue could be coating the screen which reduces efficiency.

If you’re honest about how you’re treating your dryer, you can save yourself some time and money, and possibly avoid a dryer fire.

Let Appliance Master evaluate your dryer BEFORE you have a problem. We are here to keep you safe.
