Use a special cleaning agent for the washing machine and dryer combo: Add water with the special cleaning agent into the washing machine and dryer combo according to the normal water level, run the washing machine in the normal washing mode for about 20 minutes, and then stop it to soak for two hours. After that, continue running the washing machine and dryer combo for 30 minutes before draining it and air-drying it.
Use a descaling agent for cleaning: Open the washing liquid box of the washing machine and dryer combo, add a solution of mixed descaling agent, run the washing machine and dryer combo for half an hour, drain the descaling solution from the drain pipe, and then add the drained descaling solution into the washing liquid box again.

After using the washing machine and dryer combo, be sure to unplug the power plug from the socket.
Wipe the surface of the household dryer with a dry soft cloth. Stubborn dirt can be cleaned with neutral detergent soaked cloth, but never use hard brushes, abrasives, turpentine or other materials for wiping.

In addition, some special materials such as sponge latex, rubber-containing or silk clothing, shoulder pads, etc. should not be dried in the washing machine and dryer combo since volatile substances are highly flammable. Clothes stained with oil or treated with degreasing agents should not be dried in the machine either. Sleeping bags, down jackets, pillows, and large blankets are prone to expansion, which hinders air flow inside the machine and thus should not use the drying function.
