Level in Balance
Similar to the washing machine, it is also essential for the dryer to be on level ground. Check that it is in balance when in use, and otherwise, adjust its feet accordingly so as to prevent damages caused from the vibrations while operating out of balance.
Overloading the dryer can also put the dryer at risk of being damaged, as this affects the ability of the dryer to ventilate. The additional weight can also be greater than the parts are intended to hold, and can lead to damages over time.
Ventilation for your dryer is also important for its well functioning. Ensure there is enough space between the dryer and the walls. This also allows for you to clean the exterior of the dryer more easily. Follow these simple dryer maintenance tips, and let your dryer accompany you for many more years of service.
