Cleaning the Inside of the Dryer

Here are some tips on cleaning the inside of the dryer.

Cleaning the Lint Trap

• To prevent a risk of fire, make sure to clean the lint filter before or after every load.
• Do not operate the dryer without the lint filter in place.
• Do not use a damaged or broken lint filter. This may reduce performance and/or cause fire.

To clean the lint trap, perform the following:

  1. Turn off the dryer.

  2. Open the door, and pull out the lint filter (A) from inside the tumbler.

  3. Remove the lint that has accumulated, and then clean the lint filter.

  4. Reinsert the lint filter, and then close the door.

Cleaning the Tumbler

Stainless Tumbler

  • To clean the stainless steel tumbler, use a damp cloth with a mild, non-abrasive cleaner suitable for easily marred surfaces. Remove cleaner residue and dry with a clean cloth.

Powder Coated Tumbler

  • Remove any stains from the tumbler with an all-purpose cleaner.

  • Tumble old towels or rags to remove any remaining stains or cleaning substances. Stains may still be visible, but will not affect subsequent loads.
