When running smoothly, dryers quickly wick away the moisture from a newly-washed load of clothes, leaving you with a warm, clean load. Over the years, dryers can stop being as efficient at drying, leaving clothes cool or damp after a normal cycle. To prevent this issue, add these tips to your maintenance schedule.
Before searching for dryer repair parts for a cool dryer, look at the circuit breakers. Dryers require 240 volts in order to heat properly, but can sometimes switch to 110 volts accidentally. Flip the breakers off and on, and check the plug to ensure there is no damage to the wire, then try to use the dryer again.
Clean your dryer's lint trap after every load, and check it before each load to ensure the trap is clean. Too much collected lint can cause the dryer to work less efficiently, and it is also a safety hazard that can cause fires. Use a soft brush to clean out the lint trap housing in order to clean the appliance of lint.
During dryer troubleshooting, look at the vent hose. Clean any lint or debris buildup out of the inside of the hose regularly, and make sure there are no kinks or large dents in the material. Also check the external area where the vent lets out. Make sure there are no obstructions on the outlet and clean the vent hood of any debris.
