Are you using your clothes dryer correctly?

Many users unknowingly abuse their appliances machine. Using them in ways that shouldn’t be. Learn from mistakes people commonly make, to avoid a costly appliance repair.
Using a clothes dryer seems simple enough — just load the clothes, close the door, and turn it on. Right? Not to worry about too many settings.

But as simple as it may seem, many home owners do not realize that they are making small mistakes that may hamper their efforts and eventually harm the machine. Be sure you know how to properly use your dryer to avoid a preventable call to an appliance repair technician.

Not cleaning the lint

Leaving lint in the dryer filter lowers the efficiency of the machine by slowing down the drying process. It can also cause the dryer to overheat and possibly catch fire. Make sure to clean out both the lint filter and the trap.

Not removing stuff from the pockets

Erasers, coins or crayons left in the pockets create chaos inside of a dryer. Not only will you stain your clothes, but gunk stuck on the inside of the machine requires special attention. To avoid a bigger mess, try vacuuming up the chunks of dish and scraping the remains with a flat, hard edge. Then, scrub the drum with vinegar to remove any sticky residue.
