Some Common Dryer Issues | Best Pick Reports
If your dryer is not level, it will cause components to age prematurely. To check the balance of your dryer, apply a small amount of weight to the top of it. If it moves or appears unbalanced, adjust the dryer so that it’s level again and then turn it on. While the dryer is operating, it should not move or shake in any way.
Keeping the lint trap clean is also important. Experts recommend washing the lint trap with a soft bristle brush and warm water rather than using a chemical fabric softener, which can clog the small holes in the trap.
