Step 1: Empty the Lint Screen
If you allow too much lint to build up on the screen, the heated air won’t move freely through the machine. This causes to make the dryer machine run longer. Our suggestion is to remove the lint everytime you use it.
Step 2: Clean the Dryer Vent
Assuming you can access the dryer vent by pulling the dryer away from the wall (if not, call Dr. Ducts). Always disconnect the dryer from its main power source. Then separate the vent from the dryer and vacuum both ends using the crevice attachment of your vacuum.
Step 3: Clean the Moisture Sensors
The sensors are usually located just inside the dryer, underneath the door. Look for thin metal bars, about 6 inches long, with a slight curve that follows the contour of the door. If you don’t see the sensors there, check your owner’s manual for their location. Once you have found them, proceed to clean the sensors with a cotton ball and rubbing alcohol.
