- Clear the lint filter.
Cleaning your Dryer
Before you start cleaning your dryer, ensure that it is disconnected from the power (ie unplug the dryer from the power socket).
Cleaning the control panel and outer surfaces of the dryer
Use a soft damp cloth to wipe all surfaces, then wipe dry. Avoid using chemical or scouring cleaners, as these will damage the paint and plastic surfaces of your dryer.
Cleaning the Inside of your Dryer
It is important that you occasionally clean the inside of your dryer. If the drum has any residual dirt or lint stuck to it, remove this and wipe it clean with a damp cloth. Do not leave any metal objects in the drum, as these may cause rust.
Cleaning the lint filter
To clean the filter:
- Open the dryer door.
- Remove the lint filter by pulling it up and out of the filter slot. Open it out and wipe the surface clean with your hand.
- Close the lint filter and place it back in the opening. Ensure the filter is fitted correctly back in place before operating the dryer.
If the lint filter becomes damaged, contact your Fisher & Paykel trained and supported service technician to arrange for a replacement filter. Do not operate your dryer with a damaged lint filter or without the filter in place, as this will cause damage to your dryer.
