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.
