Use your drier properly!
To avoid repair costs, please, do not overload your device, provide effective ventilation and clean filters regularly. This will keep your device functional and free from major breakdowns for years.
If you have a condenser dryer, please, drain the condenser of condensate regularly. Once it is filled to capacity, the drying process stops. Also, you should clean the filter regularly, because it is a must for optimal operation. If you fail to do that, it will take longer for your dryer to do its job, and you will end up with higher electricity bills. Finally, this can lead to overheating and even fire.
Clogs and blockages are the most common issues. Immediate repair is required if your device is not heating up, there is water under it and/or there is an unusual noise.
Improper maintenance can easily lead to a breakdown. Overheating is a common problem: before loading it, please, check your items’ weight and drying cycle type.
It is imperative that you follow the maintenance rules set by the manufacturer. Do not load it with too small and poorly wrung items. Do not load heavyweight items in the drum. For better cleaning, use modes developed by the manufacturer for each type of linen.
