DV45K6500EV: How Do I clean my Electric Front-Load Dryer, 7.5 cu.ft(DV45K6500EV)?

Last Update Date : Apr 25. 2018


Keep the dryer clean to prevent decreased performance and to lengthen its life. Clean the lint screen before or after each load.

Note: The available settings and options may differ from appliances sold in other countries.

Cleaning the control panel

Nettoyage 1

• Clean with a soft, damp cloth. Do not use abrasive substances.

• Do not spray liquid cleaning agents directly on the display of the dryer.

• Some laundry pre-treatment soil and stain removers may damage the feature panel.

• When using liquid cleaning agents, apply them to the cleaning cloth. Do not apply them directly to the dryer. Wipe up any spills or overspray immediately.

Cleaning the tumbler

Nettoyage 2

• 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.

• 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.

Cleaning the exterior of the dryer

Nettoyage 3

• Clean with a soft, damp cloth. Do not use abrasive substances.

• Protect the surface from sharp objects.

• Do not place any heavy or sharp objects or a detergent container on the dryer. They can scratch or damage the top cover of the dryer.

• The dryer has a high-gloss finish on the entire surface. Be careful not to scratch or damage the surface.

Cleaning the exhaust system

Nettoyage 4

• Check and clean the exhaust system on a yearly or regular basis to maintain optimum performance.

• The external exhaust hood must be cleaned more frequently to ensure proper air flow.

Cleaning the lint filter

To prevent a risk of fire, make sure to clean the lint filter before or after every load.

1. Turn off the dryer.

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

3. Open the lint filter by separating it at the top. Remove the lint that has accumulated, and then clean the lint filter.

4. Close the lint filter, reinsert the lint filter into the dryer, and then close the dryer door.

Caution: 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.
