Soak it in vinegar/lemon juice (some mildly acidic) overnight, then blow it through with an air line/can of compressed air/tyre inflater line at a local garage forecourt.

I've been meaning to ask that for the last week or so. I've tried a pin with no luck, going to investigate over the weekend.

Take the jet off (they pull off). Put it in a bowl of vinegar and microwave for 15 seconds. Then leave for 10 mins or so. Should be able to blow any rubbish out with your lungs if you don't have another source of compressed air... Repeat process if not working.

Use a hose pipe to flush out the washer bottle and use a good washer fluid. I use distilled water from the tumble dryer to make up the solution. Mine rarely block.

It's a condensing dryer, unlike the ones that burst into flames to dry clothing. Water collects in a tray so it would be rude not to put it to good use.
