  1. a) Isolate the electrical control by cutting the AC cord from the wall socket before undertaking any gadget repair. A tiny outlet will comfortably hold 150 times the amount of current required to destroy anyone.
  2. b) Secure the hands by using cut-resistant or tear-resistant gloves. Sheet metal has a lot of rough points and can quickly attract blood.
  3. c) Protect the knees by wearing knee braces.

Prevention: a) Maintaining the dryer in good working order necessitates proper cleaning and treatment. Improper maintenance can lead the machine to overwork, causing it to need more energy to hold your clothes dry than if it were well managed. You will extend the life of your clothes dryer, prevent explosions, and save money on maintenance by adopting these guidelines.

  1. b) Make sure the dryer’s feet are flat to avoid an imbalance in the machine, which could result in noisy sounds and increased wear.
  2. c) To ensure effective drying and fire protection, empty the lint filter during each use. Remove something extra that might obstruct proper airflow. Don’t neglect to clean the lint trap at the back of the dryer.
  3. d) Do vent the dryer outdoors, never inside. Remove clogs or other obstructions from the exhaust vent device at least once a year to ensure enough airflow. Never use acrylic or vinyl to vent. Many citizens get their dryer venting and serviced by a specialist on a yearly basis. Both internal and exterior dryer ducts should be cleaned to ensure a smooth operating operation and help deter fires. Note: According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), fires caused by clothes dryers occur every year.
  4. e) Do not use a dryer to dry foam-backed rugs, rubber or plastic garments, or other heat-sensitive products. To avoid flames, should not store clothes or other products that have been soiled with flammable liquids such as fuel or wine. Check pockets for crayons and other heat-sensitive things that might spoil the rest of your outfit.
  5. f) Make sure the dryer isn’t overloaded. The motor will finally be burned out as a result of this.

Finding the model number of your device until beginning every appliance repair job is important. The model number tag for the dryer can be found on the frame inside the panel. The sticker is found on the back of the top console on certain Maytag versions. Write down the model number and go to an online components supply page to look up the parts breakdown diagram.
