Inquery Type: Appliance repair question
Comments: I have noticed in the last few months that it is taking longer and longer for my dryer to dry laundry loads. I have visually checked to see if the moisture is leaving the outside vent. It is. My laundry room is not overly moist so I don't think it is a blocked vent. Any ideas on what to do next? Is there something easy to change.....like a heat coil? Is it much like changing an electric oven coil?
Thanks for your help, Joe.
thanks for your note. I have heard your statement a few thousand times. "Air is coming out the vent trap" Yet a service technician comes out and cleans a plugged up vent line. The amount coming out is crucial. I would suggest you disconnect the vent line from the dryer and do one load. That will tell you if I am right or not. Take the vent line off and clean it immaculate. The dryer may be a serious fire hazard if the vent line is not clean and clear.
