First, unplug your dryer and give the exterior a wipe down. Then clear the lint from the lint trap. Use a dry cloth to wipe the lint trap and around the vent as well as inside your dryer's drum. You may use a vacuum with a smaller hose attachment to remove lint that is stuck. Wash the lint trap with warm soapy water before replacing it. Clean the hose with a vacuum to remove any lint build-up. Electrolux's vented dryers are equipped with a Clean Filter indicator that lets you know when to clean the filter for perfect drying results.
If you are using a condenser dryer, empty the water reservoir and clear out lint traps after each load. Use a soft brush and a small amount of dishwashing soap to clean the lint trap every fortnight or so.
Use a flexible brush with extended bristles and a vacuum to remove any lint build-up. Vacuum the vent by sticking the nozzle into the vent as far as it will reach. Then vacuum the tube that runs from the dryer.
Your vent should be cleaned and inspected at least once a year, depending on your usage. When your clothes take longer to dry, it is an indication that your vent needs to be cleaned. If you find it hard to clean the vent yourself, you may hire a professional who can also help you check the overall condition of your dryer.
For condenser dryers, clean the actual condenser unit – which can be found beneath the main dryer door behind and outer and inner covers – every three months. To clean the condenser, remove it from the dryer unit, rinse it under running water and let it dry completely before putting it back into the dryer.
It is important to unclog the vent as quickly as possible as it poses a potential fire hazard. One way to fix a clogged vent is to reach into the dryer duct with a vacuum nozzle to clean out the lint build-up. Use a stiff cleaning brush for the hard-to-reach areas. You can also use duct cleaning kits that can be attached to a cordless drill to remove lint from the vent. Clean your dryer lint vents and ducts frequently to prevent clogs from happening.
