Loading the Dryer

• Before loading the clothes dryer, check that none of the clothes you are inserting into the dryer have any symbols on them indicating they are not suitable for tumble drying.

• Make sure none of the items you are putting into the clothes dryer have combustible materials or foreign objects, such as coins, hair pins or lighters. Be sure to empty pockets of everything before putting into the clothes dryer. 

• Clean the filter before each use and make sure it is properly back in place.

• Please insert items into the dryer one at a time to avoid items getting tangled in the clothes dryer which can reduce drying performance.

• Turn items with zippers inside out and fasten buckles as this will help to reduce impact noise from items hitting the drum while spinning.

• Make sure to check items for stains before inserting into the clothes dryer as drying can permanently set stains.

• As you dry large blankets or sheets, from time to time open the dryer door, take out the blanket or sheet and give it a shake then place back into the clothes dryer. This will help larger items with drying process.

• Make sure only items that have been washed and are still wet are placed in the clothes dryer.  No items that are dry are to be placed in the dryer. 

• Be sure when closing the clothes dryer door that no items are jammed in the door.

• Do not add items to the clothes dryer while it is operating.


Cleaning the Filter

• Clean the lint filter before each use.
Remove it by pulling it straight up and unbolt the filter.

• The lint filter is located in the door opening.
Remove the lint filter by squeezing the sides.

• Use a damp cloth to wipe the filter.
Be careful not to damage the filter.


Risk of Fire
Take care as oil-affected items can ignite, especially when exposed to heat, such as in a clothes dryer. The items become warm causing an oxidation reaction in the oil. Oxidation causes heat. If the heat cannot escape, the items can become hot enough to catch fire. Piling, stacking or storing oil-affected items can prevent heat from escaping and so it creates a fire hazard.
