Clothes dryer operating tips

​Always follow manufacturer’s operating instructions

Don’t over-dry

Over-drying wastes natural gas and gives your clothes a rough feel. Use the shortest cycle possible to minimize over-drying.

Cool down

If your dryer has a cycle with “cool-down” setting, be sure to use it.

Clean the lint trap after every load

A clean lint trap vents air and moisture more efficiently, drying your clothes faster and keeping your energy costs down.

Vent check

Check the vent on the dryer and the exterior vent occasionally to make sure they stay free of lint, and can open and close freely. The dryer should be vented outdoors to remove damp air and lint.
