Hints from Heloise: Dust builds up in dryer interior

Posted 5/9/23

Dear Heloise: My Whirlpool dryer belt recently broke. Since it's old and older appliances tend to last longer than newer models, I decided to have it fixed. I did some research and discovered it's very easy to open it up and get to the guts of the dryer. Unbelievably, there was a lot of lint and dust built up inside! Prior to repair, I was able to vacuum the entire interior. I would encourage everyone to look into their dryers and see if they need vacuuming. — Bev, Spokane, Washington
