Clothes Dryer Tips

It is very important that a clothes dryer is used as per the manufacturers specifications, if they are not used correctly they can quickly become a fire hazard.

You Fire Trianglemay have seen the fire triangle in the past, the three elements you need to sustain a fire are – heat, oxygen, and fuel. As you can imagine a poorly maintained or incorrectly used clothes dryer create the perfect environment to start a fire. Any clothing or fluff that gets too hot and begins to smolder has plenty of oxygen to ignite.

Clean filter after each load

This is the number one rule of dryers, you must clean the lint filter after each load. This not only saves you money and cuts down on drying time but it prevents the machine from overheating. If your machine cuts off it is usually a sign the machine does not have good air flow, there could be a number of factors that have caused this but the first thing to check is that the lint filter is clean.

Replace torn lint filters

It is important that you replace a torn filter. Torn filters allow dust and lint to enter the machine and once this builds up it can become an extreme fire hazard.

Gold Coast rains make dryers essential

The relentless heavy rains since Australia Day right through February have made having a working dryer a necessity for many apartment and high rise unit owners on the Gold Coast. Hanging your clothes inside to dry just does not cut it for many families.
simpson-dryersAlways, Always, Always clean the lint filter after each load of washing, this not only makes your dryer run more efficiently and dry your clothes faster it reduces the risk of a fire starting.The volume of clothes many families go through on a week by week basis is far too much to try and dry out over clothes horses and furniture. By doing some simple preventative maintenance yourself you can help keep your dryer in running order.

At least every few months check that any intake vents on the rear of the dryer are clear of dust and fluff. This is neglected for years on dryers that are hung on walls, this reduces the air flow through the appliance and can cause them to over heat and cut out. Simply vacuum off any dust from the intake vents to keep the dryer running at optimum efficiency.

Check the filter for tears or holes, if the filter has a hole replace it immediately as fluff can pass through the hole and lodge on the heater, greatly increasing the risk of fire.

Handy tips for your clothes dryer

Clean the lint filter after every load. Even though these instructions are on the front of many dryers and in the user manuals many people fail to follow these directions. Not cleaning the filter can present a serious fire hazard.

Use in a well ventilated area. Running the dryer in a cupboard or small room that is closed will cause the dryer to run inefficiently or overheat. The clothes will not dry if there is not good air flow through the machine.

Apart from a fridge or hot water system the washing machine would be the next most relied on appliance. I mean, who wants to go down to the nearest creek with a rock or wash board.

Most families wash every second day if not every day, when a washing machine breaks down it creates absolute chaos. At Appliance Repairs Gold Coast we carry a large range of common washing machine parts to get your washer going as fast as possible.

More major repairs to your washing machine will be estimated or quoted before we proceed with repairs.

If you are certain of the part required to get your washing machine up and running again please advise us of the part number or model when you book the service call. Often when clients self diagnose their appliances the diagnosis ends up being nothing like what the machine needs, especially when it comes to computerized washing machines.

Errors that people often think are computer faults end up being pump blockages, faulty lid or door locks, sensors, blown fuses, switches and broken water valves.

The bottom line is that it is best to let an expert diagnose your machine before ordering any parts. Most appliance spare parts suppliers will charge you a restocking fee of around 20% to return any spare parts that are not needed. This is providing that they even accept the part back at all, any spare parts, especially computer boards that look as though they have been fitted will not be accepted back for credit.
