When was the last time you cleaned your filter? Last winter, the one before… Never?
This simple act will not only improve your drying but also reduce your energy bill also, as it will be under less pressure and dry the clothes faster, much like replacing or cleaning the air filter on a car.
Over time, not even that much time, the dryer sucks in all the fluff that is falling off your clothes and gathers into the filter. If left for a long period of time it creates a matt over the filter increasing your drying time and your energy bills.
This 1-minute cleaning process will also prolong the life of your dryer by preventing overheating and burning out the motor.
How do I clean the dryer filter?
Each dryer varies, usually, the filter is located on the back wall internally and pull out very easily.
1. insert your thumb and index finger into the two holes and pull firmly to remove the filter carrier.
(All dryers vary, some may have the filter on the side or around the base of the door seal when you open it up.)
2. Remove the filter at the back.
3. Peel off the layer of fluff.
4. Dispose of the fluff (yeuk) and reassemble. You have now got an energy efficient fast drying dryer again!
