Remove the Lint Trap Filter
This is the step you are most familiar with and probably do on a regular basis such as after each load. As a matter of fact, this step is probably all you have ever done, just like 90% of the population. Although this step of cleaning the lint filter is important, it does not solve the problem of lint build up in the dryer or in the ducting. However it is important as a first line of defense and we need to do it, so:
  • Remove the lint screen by pulling it straight out;
  • Clean the screen of any lint by gently brushing it with the fine bristled cleaning brush.
