This alien looking electrical part is pictured here sitting on a massive bed of lint taken from a dryer filter. It is called a capacitor and in its current state, can no longer do the job it was designed to do. It was burnt out because the dryer could not remove the hot air from inside the drum of the dryer, but more importantly, the lint posed a serious fire risk.
It is vitally important to remember to clean your filter each time you use your dryer; the machine will last longer, but safety is the most important thing here to remember, and this is one way you can easily remove a threat to yourself and your family by observing this process.
If you need to have your dryer looked at, if it wont start or the drum wont turn; if the door wont open or the clothes just aren’t dry, call us at Albion Appliances on 07 36301611. Remember we can visit your home or you can bring your dryer to our workshop here at Hamilton on Brisbane’s northside, so once again your clothes will be drier.
