How to clean drains on a tumble dryer

Clogged drains on the tumble dryer can cause many problems. Your clothes will not dry fast enough, you will have higher electricity consumption due to more revs, and eventually a fire can occur. Here’s how to clean drains on a tumble dryer.

To prevent some of the above problems, the first thing you need to do in the fall is to check the drain on the tumble dryer and clean it if necessary. You can hire a master for this, but if you want to save a dinar, you can do this job yourself, with a few of our guidelines.

1. To begin with, remove the protective plastic from the place where the drain is located and clean all the remnants of fabric and fibers.

2. Push a long, curved brush (such as one for washing bottles or baby bottles) into the opening and thoroughly clean all parts you can reach. Pull out the brush, remove the accumulated bristles and repeat the process until the brush comes out clean.

3. Unplug the dryer and move it slightly away from the wall, then vacuum all the accumulated dust that has accumulated on the floor and wall around where the dryer stands.

If you have a gas-powered dryer, never move it yourself, but in that case, call the masters who will do it for you.

4. Remove the plastic hose from the back of the dryer, it should be able to be removed in one easy stroke. Clean the fabric and dust from the large drain with a brush and from the plastic hose with a vacuum cleaner.

5. Also clean the drain in the wall well with a brush as far as you can reach, remove the brush, remove the bristles and repeat the procedure several times.

If necessary, replace the metal channels on the back of your dryer, reconnect everything, return the dryer to its original position, turn it on and that’s it.
