Dryer vent cleaning tips
The Appliance Doctor diagnostic process always begins with a basic checkup. While much of the home appliance repair service we offer is highly specialized, some routine troubleshooting can discover and alleviate many common dryer problems.
Before you start the dryer vent cleaning process, make sure that your dryer is unplugged. If you have a gas dryer, double check that the gas is off as well. (Always follow the Appliance Doctor words of wisdom: safety first!)
Pull the machine away from the wall so you can reach the dryer vent. Use a screwdriver to loosen the dryer vent clamp enough that you can slide the vent off.
Now here’s the fun part of dryer vent cleaning: reach as far as you can into the hole in the back of the machine and pull out any lint and buildup in the dryer vent. You can use your vacuum’s hose attachment for a very thorough dryer vent cleaning.
Repeat the cleaning process on the dryer vent tubing you just removed. Make sure you check the outer edges of the dryer vent and the hose, as this is where most of the buildup will be. Look through the vent and tube to see if you missed anything before you reattach the dryer vent clamp.
To complete the dryer vent cleaning, run your dryer for about ten minutes with nothing inside. This clear the machine of any debris left over from the cleaning.
