Greg's Tips: Keep those appliances running

Dryer Lint Screens & Hoses

Poor ventilation is the number one reason Lipscombe Appliance & TV receives dryer service calls. Make sure your lint screen and the hose venting hot air to the outside are free of dirt and obstructions. How do you check this hose to be sure it’s clean? If it runs from your dryer directly to an outside wall, simply remove the hose from the back of the dryer and check there for dirt and obstructions. If your ductwork runs under your house to reach the outside, it’s a little trickier. If it’s rigid, generally it will have been run on a decline to allow gravity to naturally evacuate the dirt. If your ductwork happens to be flexible, it’s probably collecting dirt and moisture in its crimps or valleys and it will require a special tool to loosen the dirt and then vacuum it out. Lipscombe can clean your flexible ductwork or replace it with rigid ductwork so it’s virtually maintenance-free.
