How often should you clean your Dryer lint filter

Updated: May 20, 2023

It is important to clean your dryer lint filter after every use. When you dry your clothes, lint and other debris from the fabric collect in the filter. If you don't clean it regularly, it can become clogged with lint, which can cause your dryer to work less efficiently and potentially even overheat, leading to a fire hazard

Cleaning the lint filter is a quick and easy task that only takes a few seconds to do. Simply open the dryer door and locate the filter, which is typically located on the top or inside the door opening. Remove any lint or debris by hand, and use a soft brush or vacuum attachment to remove any remaining lint from the filter screen.

By making it a habit to clean your dryer lint filter after every use, you can help keep your dryer running efficiently and reduce the risk of fire hazards in your home. Additionally, it can help extend the lifespan of your dryer and prevent costly repairs down the line
