Clothes Dryer Routine Maintenance

  • Clean the lint filter after every load.
  • At least once a year, clean out the exhaust vent system. Do this task outside the house, using a vacuum attachment or long flexible lint brush.
  • Clean the exterior of the dryer and the door opening regularly. Use non-flammable cleaners for the dryer drum.
  • Vacuum behind and underneath the dryer once every three months.
